ASTON VILLA v. SUNDERLAND.
SUNDERLAND PLAY A MAGNIFICENT GAME

The League match between the above teams was played at Perry Barr on Saturday before 18,000 spectators. The visitors won the toss and elected to play downhill, with the sun at their backs.

The Villa pressed for two or three minutes, when Sunderland took up the running. Wilson scoring as good a goal as where was obtained on the ground a few minutes from the start, Campbell supplementing this by scoring an equally fine goal a few minutes later.

The Villa then took up the running, a particularly fine shot by Athersmith striking the bar and bouncing over.

Sunderland continued to have the best of the game, Campbell again scoring with a brilliant shot.

The Villa after this strove hard to score, but failed to pass an almost impregnable defence and half time was called with the score standing Sunderland three goals; Aston Villa 0.

In the second half the Villa with the sun behind them, were expected to do much better, and, indeed, for some time fairly held their own. They immediately ran down and secured a corner, which was splendidly placed by Athersmith, Hodgetts rushing through, thus scoring the first goal for the home side.

Sunderland immediately replied to this by scoring a forth goal by the aid of Hannah, Harvie adding a fifth five minutes later.

The game after this was of a more even description, but the Villa failed to get through, and Sunderland adding another goal by the aid of J Hannah, won by six goals to one.
