Description

Lexington 14

(4 innings, due to darkness)

or

PSOT (1):

Wayne 1 (xxx) 31

Lexington 2 (xxx) 23

(5 innings)

(PSOT (3): “In last week’s SPIRIT, there is an account of a match …, which, I am sorry to say, is not a true account. What the Lexingtons’ object was, in publishing such an account, I know not. … They wanted to take advantage of the darkness, and insisted the firth innings should be concluded; which conduct (if I may so speak) so disgusted three of their members, that they resigned at once, and are now members of the Waynes.”)
