The Kia ora coo-ee : the magazine for the ANZACS in the Middle East, 1918



More than ordinary interest was taken in the Association game between Moascar Camp and a team representing I2th. I. C. C. last month Many officers were amongst the enthusiastic spectators. It was an ideal day for football, but the "Hooshters" had undertaken a job which proved too big for them, the home team being composed of some of the best players in the Camp. At the end of the game, the Moascar team had a score of 7.7 to their credit, whilst the visitors only succeeded in securing 3 goals, 3 be-hinds. For the training Centre, Hilton (one goal), Argue, Lucas, Thorne, Frawley, Eddington and McClements (one goal), Stinton (one goal), and Stevens (one goal) were conspicuous for brilliant play. For the "Hooshters", Harper (one goal), Jones H. (one goal), and Alfred (one goal) played very good football.

During the past month 14th A.G.H. team has played four games and won two of them. The first match, against the Rest Camp, was rather uninteresting. The scores we e: 14th AG.H, 15 G. 31 B; D.M.C.R.C., 2 G. 3 B. The second match, against the 2nd A S.H. on the AG.H. ground, was strenuous throughout, the final ten minutes being highly exciting. Scores were: 14th A.G.H., 5 G. 7 B.; 2nd. A.S.H., 4 G, II B. The return match against the Rest Camp was played on the Hospital ground, in a high wind which spoiled clever football After a rather scrambling, though well fought, game, the bell rang with the scores: D.M.C.R.C, 5 G. 2 B.; 14th AG.H., 3 G., II B. The return match against No 2 A.S.H. was played at Moascar, and despite a strong wind, which interfered considerably with the play, was full of interest. As at the previous meeting of these two teams hard knock- were plentiful on both sides. Within a few minutes of time, 14th A.G H., kicking against the wind, secured a goal which brought their score to within one point of their opponents'. Scores: 2nd A.S.H., 3 G. 6 B, 14th A.G.H., 3 G. 5 B. At the conclusion of the game, the visiting team was entertained at tea.
