Played at Wellington Grounds. All through the game was much in favour of the home team. Shortly after the start Turner scored the first goal, and before half-time Benzie added a second, Sutherland a third and a fourth, while a fifth was registered from a scrimmage. Campsie managed to secure only one point.
In the second half Sutherland scoured a sixth goal, a seventh was got from a tussle at the goal mouth, and Sutherland finished the game by bringing up the total to eight. Campsie failed to score in the second period, and the result was: Victoria United, 8 goals ; Campsie, 1 goal.

A Walk Over fop the Blues.

Despite the counter attractions, a large attendance lined the ropes at the above grounds on Saturday. On getting the word to go, the locals at once took matters iu hand, scoring four times in as many minutes, and altogether piled on 8 goals to 1. Campsie, we are informed, played seven second eleven men, which may to some extent account for their poor display. It was an uninteresting game as far as scientific play is concerned, and if the blues intend to retain the Cup they will have to show a little more combination than they did on Saturday. Gray had little to do in goal. Ririe was the best back on the field, putting in some excellent work, but Anderson was only fair, his kicking at times lacking power. Stewart did yeoman service at half, tackling and kicking with rare judgment. Ross was useful, but wandered too far afield, and, though it came off on Saturday, it is a dangerous game to play. Hickie was very good, but we have seen him infinitely more effective. Benzie and Turner played a pretty game, and were the only forwards who showed the least inclination to play to each other. Sutherland excelled with his head, and Annand and Ferris bad some good Individual runs, but failed to combine. Kennedy and Gilmartin alone of the visitors were worth mentioning. The game was pleasantly contested, and free from roughness.
