EXCITING FOOTBALL. UPPER HUTT CONQUERS PETONE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 3 August 1939
UPPER HUTT CONQUERS PETONE.
; A very fast .and exciting game of football ivah witnessed at Maidstone Park on Saturday last when Upper Hutt defeated their old rivals/ Petone, by the odd, try. Taking the -oame on the whole, their was really nothing much be- .tween teams, the v - local team, shading their opponents in the latter stages. "From the kick-off, Upper Hutt. backs got moving, but a forward pass spoilt, any opportunity. Pe- tone, who were packing well were getting the ball out of the scr.u.m. and on several occasions a move- ment was started which, .however,, broke down against Upper Hutt's defence. •: A free kick awarded to'the local team- was taken' by Morton, but the .wind upset any efranee..of the hair going over. A -passing move- ment-, was . again/initiated by Skerton and the ball came but- to Travers, who made headway,; but once again a chance to open the score was spoilt by the, latter 'player who had only to pass oh to;. Connolly for him...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 3 August 1939
Connolly again played a.corker game and is an.asset to the; team. Morton's try was one out of the - box, but .well deserved. . Clements, at. full-back,' is very safe and cool. The whole of the forwards did splendid work .and it is doubtful if you would find a better pack in this Division. . ' . ■ . Upper Hutt now holds second position on the championship lad- -der and their match with Train- ing College on Saturday week will be the deciding factor. /':-.. The Thirds were again success- ful - over Johiisoriville by . six points to three on Saturday last. This young team is going well and have among them some excellent young players, who give of- their ' best'every .week. The Fourths were severely trounced by Wellington to. the ■tune of 26 points to nil. Better luck this week boys.
