Crowds of Footacray supporters journeyed to Essendon last Saturday strong in the hope that the six years' cycle of defeats on that ground would he broken, and that the tricolors would avenge the defeat Intlicted on theta eacrlier lu the season. But those hopes were doomed to disappliolnt luout. Fuotscray were weakened by the absencu of UBlxter, whose dash, pluck and skill is invaluable in a strenuous contest, but the most dis appointing features of the match was the failure of Dodeaicide, either to hold the ball whuen it was forwarded to him. or to klck goals when he had the opportunity, and the nlujury of Baubury just at i a time when his ser vices were most needed. The game was fast and strenuous to a degree. Thu heavyweights on the Essendon side used the weight they possessed unsparingly, and though this was done mostly In te cord with the rules; though Footscray tried to respond in kinu...
