FEDERALS V. YONGALA. [Newspaper Article] — The Times and Northern Advertiser, Peterborough, South Australia — 17 October 1919

.. FEDERALS V. YGNGALA. The first association match of the season was played on Saturday last, when the-Federal team visited-Yon gala. The day was rather spoilt be cause of the boisterous wind, but an interesting contest resulted in a deci sive victory for the visiting team. Bills won the toss from Laycock, and sent the Yongala team in. The Fede rals were well up to time, but unfor tunately the game was delayed' half an hour, owing to the home team not being in evidence. When the match was eventually started the matting was not too securely fastened, and this laxity on the part of the home team cost them somewhat dearly. Laycock took strike, and put the first ball from Tonkin into the usually safe hands of Dodd in slips, but the chance was dropped. The third ball, however, was sent down just as the wind shifted the matting, and Lay cock was bowled for 0. This was a most regrettable start for Yongala, and will surely, be a lesson to every team, as it is far wiser to have the matting ...
