CHAPTER XXI

The game was in midfield when they got back. A resounding duel was in progress between the " behinds " of each side. A spectacular volley from Williams brought clapping from the whole ground. Oliver at goal was left several bouncing balls to return ; but, ignoring the gallery, he steadied them first and kicked nicely judged balls into the loose. Spectacular kicking seldom gave the bully time to charge the ball down.
But Wren's were tiring. Beckett at " fly " urged on the bully, and himself made some good rushes ; but the heavier side were pressing them. Raven's post held the ball tightly between his feet, while the bully slowly gained ground. In the loose the house trooped after the ball in a dazed procession. Sanders, Raven's " fly," had his Field, but had not done much up till now. Suddenly he got the ball and, closely backed up, cooled past Robin and reached the line in the far right-hand corner. A crowd of cheering boys made a dash for the line. Pops joined hands and held them back. Sanders moved in quick hops along the line, the ball, loose between his feet, and another boy waiting to take it on behind him. Beckett feinted ; ran in to barge him off his balance and leaped back. Sanders took no notice. Beckett looked over his shoulder and saw the goal only fifteen yards away and Sanders had hopped a couple of yards in the meanwhile. "All together, bully," Beckett hurled himself at Sanders and overbalanced him for a moment. The ball came out into the loose. Some one booted it. A crisp report. The ball rebounded off a knee and spun away over the line. The crowd stampeded, while two figures raced down a clearing and fell on the ball. The umpire bent low and examined them, as they lay locked on the ball. He put his whistle in his mouth. " Rouge." The crowd roared and rushed for a good place behind the goal-posts. Denis and Peter stood in the front row of the great semi-circle. The umpire inspected the formation of Wren's defence. Featherstone leaned against the post, ready to lead a counter attack on the bully, as soon as the ram was in. He rested an arm on his hip and tossed back his hair. " Ready ?" said
