Massey Trip

Massey Trip

The game was played on a new ground recently acquired by the College and not yet in a state conducive to good stickwork. This, however, was counterbalanced by the vigour and determination of both teams and an open and exciting game resulted. From the first whistle VUC rushed to the Massey circle and only the good work of the goalkeeper stopped a goal in the first 30 seconds. This put Massey on their toes and the play ranged up and down the field with many good runs by Glen Simmers at right wing until Bice Young scored. Another goal came before half time from Thora Marwick whose stickwork was a great worry to the opposing half. At half time the score stood at 2-0.

Play resumed with VUC on the attack, but Mary Patterson for Massey stopped many breakaways by VUC forwards and gave the ball to her right wing who passed it in to the centre forward. H. Spenser, who scored. Two more goals were added by B. Young and T. Marwick for Victoria before Massey brought the score to 4-2 through a breakaway by H. Spenser. VUC's final goal came from a fine run by G. Simmers who took the ball into the circle and scored through a kick being mistimed by their goalie, who had saved many goals previously.

VUC full backs N. Spiers and H. Lang made a steady line of defence and few balls got past them.
