Somerville, without the services of a couple of regular players, were a little late in getting into their stride. However, with O'Brien prominent in the centre, the football improved, and at half time, they were on even terms with Frankston. Excellent tussles all over the ground were witnessed, and some fine marking and long kicking kept spee tators interested. Somerville's captain and coach (O'Brien) shone in the centre, where he displayed championship form. Clever and elusive, an excellent mark and accurate kick. he had much to do with Somerville's snatching the lead ten minutes before the final bell. Players' tempers became frayed, and some nasty incidents occurred. These skirmishes are regrettable, as is also the umpire's failure to report obvious cases of spitefulness. If al lowed to continue, the league can ex pect displays similar to a f...
