Bowling for the Priory, F. Hutson captured five wickets for 58 nine, A. Hilton three for 39, and Capt. F. J. Postlethwaite one for 40. The Priory had knocked up 144 when the ninth wicket fell, but Hutson, the last man stayed with Hilton while the score was carried to 159, thus leaving the home team victorious, after an interesting and exciting game, by eight runs.
