III A—Captain, H. L. Cook; Vice-Captain, S. Mason.
V. C. v Petone. Won, 12—0, Cook (4), Vernon (3), Bates (2), McDowall, Cleghorn, Chapman scored. Played at Petone; miserable ground and no referee.
V. C. v Wesley. Won., 10—0. Cook (4), Vernon (3), McDowall (2), Bates. Wesley dangerous on one occasion. Captain felt easier after the sixth goal. D. H.enderson played well in backs.
V. C. v Government Life. Won, 5—3. Our line crossed for the first time. Capping dances spoil averages.
V. C. v Metropolitan. Won, 2—0. An anxious time. Metrops, were our closest rivals. McDowal scored and Inder.
V. C. v III B. won, 9—1.
V. C. v Government Life. Won, 3—0. In colder weather this had been hockey on the ice. Bates twice and mason once waded through and steered the floating ball between the posts.
V. C. v Wellington. Won by default.
V. C. v Metropolitan. Won, 9—0. Vernon (4), Cook (4), and Robinson showed little respect for the dread name Metropolitan. We think we may win the cup.
V. C. v Greggs. Won, 2—0. Greggs were not Greggs, but mainly but mainly recruits from different junior teams. However, assisted by some III B's we more than held them. Watson and Cook Scored.
