Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 14 July 6, 1938

Senior B

Senior B.

Against the mechanical perfection of Island Bay B. Victoria College Senior B team did well to core fourteen goals. The first half ended 15-8 against V.U.C., but the superior positional play and team work of the Bay added 16 goals to 6 in the second spell.

To balance the loss through ankle of their captain, Nancy Bullen, the B team now has Joy Osborn playing for them. An early injury kept the latter player out of the A team and her height and experience should prove an asset to the B's.

Owing to very late notice the B team defaulted in the final of the Opening Day Two-life Tourney to Wellington East. It is hardly likely that the three goal handicap would have been sufficient to stave off the East nine.

The goals of the Island Bay team had a wonderful combination and proved altogether too fast for our defenders. Their shooting was accurate and they nearly always managed to score when they got the ball in their third. The passing of the 'Varsity team, especially in the center, was poor again, which meant Island Bay had more than their share of the ball.
