(return match)

(BDE: Game was played “in the presence of some two thousand persons. The Excelsiors were out in full force and played their very best game. … The Charter Oaks did not come up to their usual style of playing and were consequently compelled to chronicle their first defeat of the season.”)

(NYT: “The fly game is becoming more and more popular, as is shown by the increasing number of matches that are played in this manner. An interesting fly game took place … between the above Clubs.”)

(NYC: “the game being played on the fly, …, the Excelsiors were of course victorious”)
