(“conquering game” - 7 innings, due to darkness)

(PSOT: “It will be remembered, that this is the first match for the Watsessings, it being only five months since its organization; and the Empires felt rather sore, after being victorious in all their matches this season, that, at last, they should have their laurels taken from them by this young Club. … There were quite a number of spectators on the ground, although the Watsessings were not as fully represented as they might have been.”)

Tholkes has it 2nd nine of the Empire Club.
