The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1914

Junior A

Junior A.

(Captain: R. St. J. Beere. Vice-Captain: E. Fitzgerald-Eagar, on whom, be it known, all the work devolved, owing to the Major's want of skill on horseback.)

v. Metropolitan. Won by a large score. Hostich proved a valuable goal-getter.

v. Hutt Valley. Result, still in doubt. Six heroes went to Hutt Park, and found four Huttites. Neither side had a ball, and so, as it rained torrentially, we went home again. The day was enlivened by various Bible stories by Cleghorn and Jones.

v. Karori. Postponed, and—never played!

v. St. Augustine's. Lost, 5—10. Their parson so favourably impressed us that we gave up in admiration of his flow of language.

v. United B. Won, 4—1 (Eagar 2, Cleghorn 1, Jones 1). On the line our College lady players did great service by cheering our shots. They owed us that much, for their heavy (?) going previously had simply cut the ground up.

v. Junior University B. In this game, Cleghorn, McCaw, Lennard and Eagar each scored. The B's got one goal by great good luck. One of the circles was extremely well gravelled.

v. United. Lost, 4—1. Eagar the only scorer.

v. Kelburn Anglican. The Church again was victorious. Clegehorn learnt a new vocabulary. We were but five men patriotism sent six of our team to Samoa.
