From the kick out Lewis, by quickly following up, secured the ball intended for Jones he, however. tailed to hold it, and Arthurs made off with the leather and grounded it between the posts. Kedzlie essayed the place, but failed to convert. On the ball being once more set in motion, Norton took charge of it, and gut into the Docks 25, but was smartly upset by Hancock. HillawÀ Emery dribbled to near the Docks goal, and a pass from Jarman to Arthurs enabled the latter to again cross the line. Kedzlie, however, again failed to increase the score. The Town then maue a rush on their opponents' goal, and again the Docks had to touch down. On the; kick out, despite the efforts of the Docks backs, Mori is, from a pass by Hill, managed to gain a try, which this time Kedzlie succeeded in improving on.
