(Troy Daily Whig (2): “After the game was concluded the ‘Excelsiors’ gave the ‘Victory’s’ a collation on the field, which was got up in the most hospitable manner.  The Troy boys speak in the highest terms of their treatment, which they hope soon to reciprocate on a return match. / Each club wore a neat uniform yesterday—the Victorys a blue cap, white shirt and red belt; the Excelsiors a plaid cap and blue belt.  A number of spectators from this city and West Troy witnessed the match, and all seemed highly pleased.”)
