Crowd Cheexs Is Cec. Benson's Bog Wins Maiden It Dapto Rarely do dog punters cheer as they did at Dapto last night, when I Knew It won the Maiden Stakes. I Knew It is owned and trained by Mr. Cec. Benson, Secretary of the Owners and Trainers' Association. I Knew It led all the way to win in 29.3. She started at 5/2. As the field turned for home I the local dog followers com- 1 menced to urge the dog to vie- , tory. Close to the line there were calls of 'Come on, Cec', and after the field had passed the post there were many loud 'Congratulations, Cec, it's good to see you get a winner'. Mr. Benson has not a large number of dogs, and last night's winner had performed . well enough to run into minor plac ings previously on this track. There were loud moans in the final race when the heavily backed Judy Dougall skidded across the front of the even money favourite, Chief Parenta. The incident occurred as the leaders were swinging out of the straight the first time. Brindle Petra had a sl...

Big Soccer Week-end At Woonona [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 15 July 1950

Big Soccer Week-end At Woonona This week-end will be one of the biggest of the season for Woonona Soccer fans. Games will be played there both today and tomorrow. This afternoon Woonona play Drummoyne in the competition fixture. Tomorrow afteriiopn they will turn out against Granville in the first round of the State Knockout Competition. , Today's game is of critical im portance, as even a draw against the Sydney side would knock Woonona out bf the run ning for a game in the semi finals of the competition. On paper Woonona should be able to defeat Drummoyne team, the players in which have ?been very' patchy this year. They have not won a match for some weeks, but they are a team capable- of springing a surprise. If Woonona got off - form for only a few minutes, the Drummoyne forwards could notch up' a couple of quick -goals. Their- forwards, A. Sorbie, W. Cuthbertson and A. Shaw are a particularly strong combination. Woonona cannot afford to take any risks agains such a line-up. Woo...

J. Bromwich and F. Sedgman defeated G. Robinson and' H. Rochon 6-2, 6-4, 6-4. Sedgman and Ken McGregor had won their singles on the first day. The Canadians delighted the capacity crowd of loyal support ers by a spirited fighting exhibi tion against superior skill and power. The slim Rochon was brilliant in , retrieving: seemingly impos sible shots and raced around the court like a nippy terrier.

BROMWICH STEADY Bromwich' was the steadier of the Australian pair especially in the crisis. He .handled ? the lobs with which the Canadians were per sistent in ...

SAVE A FEW CHEERS FOR THE ENGLISHMEN [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Daily Mercury — 17 July 1950

SAVE A FEW CHEERS FOR THE ENGLISHMEN THE SOUTH COAST will have an opportunity to demonstrate the calibre of its sportsmanship when Southern Districts play the Englishmen at Wollongong on Wednesday. The present League tour has not been altogether a happy one. There has been a regrettable series of 'inci- dents' and they have not all occurred on the playing neias. The district's pritpje aim, from the moment the English men arrive on Wednesday moaning, until they leave, should l?e to make their yisit as pleasant, in every way : as is possible. . MUCH OF the responsibility will rest with the Rugby League officials and the players. The League. officials have already set about plans to entertain the visitors generously and harmoniously. The players can co-operate in this by playing the game in its true spirit — as a game rather than a battle. This does not imply the use of 'kid gloves'. The Eng lishmen can 'give it' on the field and they will expect to ''take it'. But there are rigid dist...
