CHINA SCOUTS OVERWHELM ST. JOSEPH'S TEAM.
The second league game between South China Scouts and St. Joseph's was a poor affair with the Scouts on top throughout. St. Joseph's were weak in the field and the Scouts were quick to take advantage. The result was a win for the Scouts by 13 to 3.
St. Joseph's opened with a run in the first and the Scouts were blanked. St. Joseph's then played four pointless innings, while the Scouts notched five at their second visit, a single in the third, another five in the fourth, and one in the fifth.
St. Joseph's got a single in the sixth, but the Scouts cancelled this out in return by a home run through Chan Yee-ting. St. Joseph's went to but for the last time with a deficit of 11 but could do no more than a single and the game ended as stated. Messrs. Hollands and Shim were the umpires.
