Salient. An organ of student opinion at Victoria College Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 5 April 19, 1939

Ruth Bell

Ruth Bell.

Against Auckland there was less tension, although this is always the second best team these days and they had won against Otago University in the first round. Victoria University College wore never headed in the score and would have done much better but for poor shooting partly because of the unchecked over-defense of Auckland University College. It was her play in this game that earned Ruth Bell her Blue. Her defense (and at times over-defence) of the third forward saved many goals and completely rattled the Auckland forwards. The gameness of Joy Osborn, who resumed after nearly fainting with the heat and then scored two goals in as many minutes, will not soon be forgotten by the team and the spectators.
