The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1914

Junior B

Junior B.

v. Karori. Lost, 8—1. We were two men short. Whitehead scored.

v. St. Augustine's. Lost, 7—1. The weather was very bad. Only seven men turned up, the absentees including the Captain and the Vice-Captain.

v. United B. Won, 5—3. This time we made up our minds to do something, and we notched a good win. The game was a success, and we played up to our very best form. Scorers were Edward (2), Wright, Armstrong and Whitehead.

v. University A. The A's, by a mixture of craft and skill (?), blended with luck, managed to beat us. Whitehead again scored for us. Lost, 4—1.

v. United A. Lost, 3—0. Thompson sustained a fractured eye-glass, and went, home with a cut eye. We were then three men short.

v. Kilbirnie Anglicans. Won, 5—4. Both sides were one man short. We made a forward game of it. Scorers: Seddon (2), Ewart (2), and Saxon.
