TRAINING COLLEGE WINS CHAMPIONSHIP.
The looked for match be- tween Upper Hutt and Training College took place on Saturday last at the Hutt Recreation Ground and resulted in a win for the Training College by 13 points to eight. • Facing a cross wind and the .sun in the'first half half, Upper Hutt, took, play into their oppori- . ents/ territory, but -a -hefty kick by 'Training/College's full-back -found the line, gaining 30 yards, for his team. The. game, which was very fast, see-sawed from/one end to the other, both sides showing great defensive play. A minute before half-time Training College was awarded a penalty well inside Up- per Hutt's twenty-five, and Beard had no difficulty, in opening their score. The second half had not long been in operation .before the Col° lege backs secured from a serum from .about half-way and in a • passing rush Thurston went over. Beard added', the/ extra points with an excellent kick. - / A free kick to Upper Hutt saw .Morton ...
NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 17 August 1939
- Training College are to be con- gratulated on their win, as they have not actually been beaten throughout the season. The local team is no doubt the hardest problem they have had to tackle, arid perhaps with a little luck they may have beaten the Collegians. The whole of the team play- ed exceptionally well, with Con- nolly, McNeil and Skerten out- standing. McCarthy's try was one of the best seen for some time. Coach J. Paul should be proud of • his team, as it was no disgrace getting beat by such a team as Training College; -McNeil and Clemens have been selected as junior reps,, and wiil be playing . at Masterton . next week-end against Wairarapa. A. McCarthy, Petone;," is first emergency in - the Wellington- Otago match on Saturday. The championship matches are now completed and the local ju- nior team finished up second to Training College. . ; Probably before the season ends Upper Hutt will be travelling to Otaki to meet the sea-siders for the Wylie-Keegan Cup.
