Score 80 - 42
Innings 12
NY Rules No - Predecessor

Excelsior 2nd nine 80, Camden 2nd nine 42

(town ball – 12 innings)

(New York Clipper: “Many ladies and gentleman visited the scene of the contest during the progress of the game, and not a few gave demonstrative tokens of their admiration of the sport.”)

The rematch, played July 22, was won by the Excelsior 71-66. As this was in Camden, it would seem likely that the above Camden Club was from Camden, NJ, even though the article says it's a Philly club.
