HOCKEY. I LANCASHIRE v. CHESHIRE. I lrus annual Boxing-day match was played on tho Bowdon crioket ground on Saturday before one of the best attendances which have over assem- bled to see a hookey match in this district. Cheshire finally won by four goals to one-a. vio- tory in every way deserved, for it is many years sinoe Lancashire offered su-oh a feeble resistance to the attack brought to bear against them. Once only during the first half did Lancashire manage to reach their opponents' striking circle, and it was not until ten minutes from time, when Barolay scored their only point, that Lancashire were ever serioudy to be reckoned with. The performance of the Cestr.ans stamps it as the finest in the history of county hockey, for apart from the margin which gained them the V1ctory from the iiiar?, 'ii in every point of the game was t h eir stiporlorit most pronounced from the start. Led by a ster- ling trio of halves, in wh:ch Biatherwick continu- ally attracted the applause of the spectators, the attacking line gave one of the best exhibitions ever seen in the North, and with the exception of one movement early in the game, when Peel made rather a risky m.stake in midfield, the defence was always safe. Fifteen minutes after the start G. F. Tetlow opened the scoring for Cheshire, and after a hot attack, in which cross passing close to goal completely baffled the defence, a second goal was recorded, from the sante wing. Again before the int-erval Tetlow and his partner wore respon- s.ble for a third point, and although the second half was well adva.noel before the Cootrians were again successful, it was not the fault of the attack, but rather the stubborn opposition offered by Low, Busch, and Wiijiams. An appeal for a fourth goal, after a consultation by the umpires. wa., disallowed, but within a minute Scott again neicea ine Dau, ana tnere tne scoring tor the LJes- trians finished. The only point for Lanejashire was well earned by Barclay from an opposite wing pass by Heyworth, and although from this point to the fin.sh Lancashire made their most promis- ing efforts of the game. they were unable again to get in, the game ending as stated. Appended are the teams:—Lanoashire: W. J. Low (Huy- ton), goal; H. F. Busch (captain. West Derby) t?ori) R. M. Williams (Northern), b.Mks; R. E. Knowles (Alderley Edge), W. J. S.
