Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 2, No. 12. June 28, 1939
Goals should have been plentiful in the inaugural hockey contest between Victoria House and Weir House last Saturday morning. The game took place on the soccer ground on Kelburn Park and the goal-mouths yawned 24 feet wide.
Excited by the cries of some seventy partial spectators, players dashed into the fray with abandon. Greater speed, harder hitting and, alas, bustling tactics, gave Weir control of the game in the first half. The second half was more evenly contested. Lila Marshall playing well in the Victoria House half-back line.
Weir won by 5 goals to 2, the best of its ungallant players being Rutherford (Captain). Whitlock, Cook, Moss, Tilson and Bath. For Victoria House Nancy Spiers played probably the soundest hockey on the field in the first half. The two goals were scored by Betty Rider and Sybil Green.
