On Saturday Hampstead visited Barking in the return League match and were defeated by the same score as on Friday, and can again consider themselves unlucky not to have come away with a point.
Hampstead fielded the same side as the previous day with the exception of Gudgeon, who was injured, Wardlaw taking the centre-half position and Webdale coming in at left-half. Barking's only change was Randle at right-half for Kemp.
Hampstead was the first to score through Harvey, but Barking soon equalised, Guyton scoring during a scramble in the goal-mouth. This was quickly followed by another, Vargo scoring a good goal following a corner taken by Evans.
Following change of ends Smy went through the Barking defence and finished his run with a good shot which beat McCracken, and the referee, who was behind Smy the whole time, pointed to the centre of the field for a goal, but one of the linesmen, however, appealed for offside against Smy and the referee then altered his decision and gave a free kick.
Barking then attacked strongly, and thanks to Trevers, who gave a wonderful display in goal, including the saving of a penalty kick, they were unable to obtain the deciding goal until two minutes from time, this being through another very bad decision on the part of the referee. Trevers, in saving a shot, fell on the ball: the Barking forwards rushed up and started kicking at the ball. The referee then blew for a foul on Trevers, and to everybody's amazement instead of awarding Hampstead a free kick he bounced the ball on the goal-line, and it was bundled into the net.
For Hampstead Trevers was outstanding, whilst Vargo was the dominating figure of the Barking side.
