Red Hill Defeat Depot IN BRILLIANT THIRD QUARTER EIGHT GOALS IN FIFTEEN MINUTES [Newspaper Article] — Standard — 28 July 1939

Red Hill Defeat Depot IN BRILLIANT THIRD QUARTER EIGHT GOALS IN FIFTEEN MINUTES AFTER the splendid victories over Rosebud and Pearcedale, the Red Hill players and supporters were con fident of a keen, close game with Naval Depot, leaders in B grade. The Dromana ground was in fair order after some heavy rain, but a strong south westerly blowing into the eastern pocket of the northern goal spoilt play somewhat. Opening with the wind in its favor, the home team were forced into errors by the stout defence of the Navy backs, and at the first change led -by only 7 points: Red Hill 1-8, Navy 1-1.. Early in the second term Red Hill surprised its supporters by some sterling -systematic play against the wind, which brought a reward of 2 goals. Strong defence kept Depot at bay till late .in. the ..quarter when a string of, goals gave them the lead, 5-4 to 3-9 at half time. Red Hill attacked strongly on the resumption, but despite better position play could manage only behinds. The game seemed...

FLAG Bridge evening to be held at High School, 'Wed., August 2nd. R.S.S.I.L.A., HASTINGS. VALEDICTORY. At the last meeting of the sub branch on July 17th, it was with extreme regret that the members accepted the resignation of. their friend and secretary, Mr. Wall. Only a month before, the sub-branch paid tangible tribute to him as a gesture of its esteem, and expressed a hope to have him connected with its acti vities for years to come, little dream ing that its gift would so soon assume the nature of a "souvenir." Mr. Wall has received a satisfac tory offer for his business, and after much thought has decided to sell, to the sorrow of all the diggers for miles around. He has worked un stintingly for the branch, and his personal charm and uncountable kindly acts have made all the mem bers his staunch friends for all time. It would be safe to say that our membership, with its record of eighty one members, having risen from twenty-three, is almost entirely due to Mr. Wall. At a speci...
