Graham-street Wesleys' C.C. [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 14 February 1914
Graham-street Wesleys' C.C. Last Saturday's match against North Melbourne Methodists resulted -North Melbourne 90. G. Cherry 31, was principal scorer, and W. Rendall, six for 26, R. McDonnell, three for 19, and W. WTalton, one for 9, shared the bowling honors. Graham-street, five for 69. R. McDonncll, 22, and R. Douglas, 18, were most at home to the bowling of J. Cheetham, three for 8, and R. Nixon, two for 22. Reggie McDonnell was in splendid form with both bat and.ball. His an ticipations of Saturday night evident ly had a good effect. The "Wild Man from Rochester" made his reappearance, but seems to have left some of his dash in the country. The position of scorer was much sought after last Saturday, and final ly the Graham-street boys took it in turns. Whether it was pure zeal, or the fact that the North Melbourne I scorer was a lady, is left to the ima gination. The game, which is at a very inter esting stage, will be concluded at Royal Park to-day.
