[Unions of Morrisania vs. Irvingtons 7/2/1867] The match was an important one to the Unions, as it was the second game of the series, and on the result depended their chances for the championship; for it is one of the customary rules governing the championship matches that the loss of a match–best two out of three–throws a club out of the ring for the season, as a champion club, in order to have the right to “fly the whip,” must win every series of match games they play. They may lose a single game without invalidating their title, but two defeats out of three games with a club places them hors de combat for the season.
