Games Described

Games Described.

Little needs to be said of the games against Canterbury. The Reds were disorganized by the loss of a defender through a wrenched ankle and seemed quite incapable of scoring when presented with opportunities.

Otago are a much improved combination. Several new and young players appeared and promise to make Otago University a force in coming years. The six-goal margin in Auckland's flavour was Mattering to the northern team. Had Otago defended the last pass in goal really strenuously and had they not lapsed in their own shooting in the second spell, a victory (for the first time) might have resulted for Otago University. The loss of a centre through injury seemed to do little to upset a well-trained combination.
