The New York Cricket Club hosted the Willow Cricket Club for a two innings match at its home ground in Hoboken, New Jersey.  Both teams fielded their "second elevens." Batting first, the host secured a first innings lead of fourteen runs but then amassed a significant total of 140 in the second.  The visitors were unable to overcome this and lost by 71 runs.  (By John Osborne)
