OUR special representative at Tyabb writes:
There was a fair attendance of spectators at the match between Langwarrin and Tyabb on the Tyabb oval last Saturday.
The local team played far superior football than against Hastings the week before, and were never hard pressed by their opponents.
Some nice hand ball passing by the maroons, especially by their forward men, was witnessed.
The game was of a very fast and friendly nature; hard knocks being given and taken with true sporting spirit.
The outstanding feature of the day’s play was the large number of behinds kicked by the local team.
Several easy shots by the maroon forwards went to the wrong side, and three times the post was hit.
The Tyabbians were unlucky not to have won by a larger margin than 10 points as their team, playing fine football, with nice system and plenty of dash, always looked the winners.
It was the finest effort yet shown by the local team for the season and it should inspire them on to yet greater efforts.
The final scores were:
Tyabb, 2.16 (28 points)
Langwarrin, 2.6 (18 points)
Practically every player in the maroon jacket was prominent at some stage or another of the match, but the most conspicuous were Scanlan, Longmuir, Golding, Les Cole, Slocome, Storey, Morrow, L. Thornell, while Reg. Borley, Alan Hodgins, Lewis Cole, Russell and A. Noble were among those who battled hard for the victors.
For the losing side, Cain, Adderly, Bond, Franklin, Males, and several others unknown to the writer shone out.
Connell umpired the match.
Our Tyabb scribe further writes:
I think the duel next Saturday, between Frankston II and Tyabb, on the Frankston oval will be the match of the season.
The maroons are confident, and no doubt the Frankstonites fancy their own chance.
Anyhow, may the better team win.
Having seen most of the Second Association teams in action, I consider that Frankston, Hastings and Tyabb are, so far, the best clubs.
I predict one of these three teams will be premiers.
Scanlan played a good, dashing game for Tyabb against Langwarrin.
Both in marking, kicking and general play he was always foremost for the winners.
