Salient: Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Vol. 32, No. 7. 1969.
The second team beat Waterside 3-2 on a wind-swept Kilbirnie Park.
After having the wind at its back during the first half, and being level at 1-1 at half-time, the chances for a Varsity victory looked bleak.
In the second half it was almost all waterside, and it went into a 2-1 lead.
However Varsity scored twice as the result of two breakaway attacks and ran out the winners by the odd goal in five.
Scorers for Varsity were Robin Fox, Sieve Palmer and Roy Shuker.
