- White's own goal described in The Daily Post: "Moran, who had sparked off as many attacks as anybody in a scintillating display, slipped up to allow Howitt a passage to the line. He pulled the ball back to sharpshooter Asprey and although Younger might possibly have had the ball covered, White intervened with his head to register an own goal."
