The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review October 1914

Senior Fifteen

Senior Fifteen.

v. Poneke. Lost, 17—3. University played very disappointingly.

v. Petone. Lost, 3—0. A fine game on a wet ground. East assures us to this day that he forced the ball before the Petone-ite made the only score of the day.

v. St. James. Won, 16—3. Faire and East each scored twice, and Ryan and Beard each converted one.

v. Melrose. Won, 12—0. East scored twice, Miller once, and Shaw once.

v. Oriental. Lost, 11—0. Our men returned home distinctly annoyed.

v. St. James. Won, 0—3. St. James looked like winning on several occasions.

v. Petone. Lost, 22—0. The large score does not indicate the respective merits of the teams. It was a fine game, and Petone's kicking accounted for most of the points.

v. Athletic. Won, 10—3. The most sensational win in the Club's history. The result resurrected the waning interest of the general public in the Championship, and proved a boon to the Union.

v. Oriental. Lost, 13—10. Our men again annoyed, Oriental resurrected McLeod and other old players.

v. Wellington. Lost, 9—5. An exciting game, the winning of which enabled Wellington to tie with Athletic for the Championship.
