(Troy Daily Whig (3): “A match game (purporting to be of Base Ball …  The result might have been avoided, had the Victory boys played with anything like their accustomed ability.  We will not say that willfulness had anything to do with the game, but it seemed to be decidedly so. / During the first five innings the play was very sharp, and the result was clothed in much doubt.; but when the Priams went in on the sixth innings, and made seven runs, and again in the seventh made eight runs, then it was apparent to all that the Victorys would be obliged to reverse their belts.  The fielding on the part of the Victorys during those two innings was decidedly ‘butter’—the degree of ‘muffin’ seems to be too good to applied. / The fielding of the Priam Club was almost worthy of a first-class club.  We never saw them do better. / On the return match, it is to be hoped that the Victory boys will sustain their second nine reputation more fully than they did this time. / There was a very large party of spectators and we were glad to see that everything was conducted in an orderly manner. / … the Victory alias Vic-tim second nine got roughly handled.”)
