The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1915

University v. Otago University

University v. Otago University.

This match was played on the Wellington College ground on 26th and 28th December, and as has been said, resulted in a win for Otago by an innings and 27 runs.

Otago Batted first, and made 249, Smith batting very solidly for 80 not out. The bowling honours were fairly evenly divided. In our first attempt we could only make 568. The second innings opened little more hopefully, but the tail wagged to some purpose, and the innings closed for 154. We congratulate Otago on their win and trust we shall be ableto recapture our lost laurels next Christmas.

Following are the scores:—
Otago University: 1St Innings.
Tweedy, run out 37
Adams, b Broad 42
Alloo, b Martin 36
Smith, not out 80
Reid, c Dempsey, b Joplin 14
Graham, lbw, b Joplin 6
Price, c Joplin, b Martin 0
de Beer, c and b Martin 0
Paterson, c Ward, b Dempsey 6
Simpson, b Broad 1
Total 249

Bowling: Dempsey one for 40, Martin three for 56, Broad two for 51, Joplin ione for 15.
