"BASE BALL MATCH -- The Androscoggin Base Ball club of Lewiston, and the Massasoit Club of this city, played a match game yesterday on the Massasoit grounds near the arsenal. The game was a very interesting one and resulted in the triumph of the Massasoit, the score being 35 (?) to 13 (?). In the evening the clubs sat down to a sociable supper at the United States Hotel, and had a capital time." Portland Daily Advertiser, Aug. 20, 1861
