Match Notes

For Balmain, goals were missed by Regent, Ward and Edwards (in the second half). It is unknown if Fitzpatrick missed the conversion for Halloway's second try in the first half. For Western Suburbs, Blake missed an attempt at drop goal in the second half (is this C. Blake from Wests' lineup in 1908?) He came on for A. Halling, who left the field with a sprained knee and ankle in the first half.
