The Spike or Victoria College Review, June 1906

First Fifteen

First Fifteen.

V.C. v. Oriental. Lost, 35—0. Hard game. Team held their own during first spell. Bogle (who was knocked out) and McCarthy played well.

V.C. v. Petone. Lost, 34—3. Lynch kicked a penalty goal in first few minutes. Petone gave an object lesson in goal kicking for our line was only crossed four times.

V.C. v. Southern. Won, 27—0. Score should have been larger as many chances were thrown away. Weariness apparent towards end of game. A. Bogle scored twice, once by fast following up a try at goal. G. Bogle, Acheson, and Goulding also scored, and McCarthy kicked a penalty goal.

V.C. v. Athletics. Lost, 16—3. G. Bogle kicked a penalty goal. Chiefly forward game. Our forwards beaten on the line and in the loose.

V.C. v. Poneke. Lost, 16—3. Played on wet ground. Backs did not appear at home. College played perhaps the best defensive game this season. Goulding had to retire at half-time with a sprained ankle. Lynch, de la Mare, and Short in forwards and McCarthy and G. Bogle in backs were prominent.

V.C. v. Wellington. Drawn, 6—6. A most disappointing game. Remarkable for the amount of whistle. Team not up to form against Poneke.
