V.U.C. v. O.U

V.U.C. v. O.U.

On Monday morning the grounds at Karori were sudden after overnight rain, but in spite of this the game between V.U.C. and O.U. was a fast one. Victoria adopted offesnsive tacties from the start and were on top throughout. The short passing game of the forwards, the nippiness of the halves and the speed and steadiness of the fullbacks were too much for O.U. with their hard-hitting open type of game. Victoria's first score came from an opening by Shaw, completed by Webb. Following fast up and down play, O.U. ceded penalty corner, and from the resultant scramble in the circle, Stweart drove through, making the half-time score, V.U.C. 2, O. U. nil.

V.U.C. maintained the pressure in the second half, but it was not until half-way through the spell that, from a movement down the right, Webb scored again. O.U. now had a turn on attack and from a scrimmage in the circle, Warren nettled. Though taking things easier, Victoria's defence held, and the game ended 3-1
