After having lagged in the first half the aborigines played a brilliant third term to score. 44 points to nil and take the lead. In an exciting last quarter the lead changed repeatedly, but the aborigines played desperately to hold a one point lead in a hectic finish.
Skill was shown by F. Walker, whose brilliant marks and clever position play enabled him to kick eight goals for the winners, and spectacular marks by Nelson. T. Muir, and J. Murray earned applause.
