Tlie .Northern ground must have held ;about 10000 onlookers, and . the thousands of Scray supporters were keen ly disappointed at the defeat. It was not- so much- the defeat, but they could not understand the poor form displayed by several of their usually pro minent players. While every credit is due to the victors for their fine win, they are not likely to beat Scray so easily when they next meet. It was certainly ' Scray's off day. They did not seem to be able to do anything right, and the passing was wretched' at times Time after time a Footcray player would kick the ball straight into a North man's hands. Footscray had two new players in their colors,— Williams, who played on the wing, and Donnelly, a tall for ward. Both shaped well, al though the latter is hardly fasti enough. The game was a disappoint ment, except the first quarter, in which ther...
