In the final, in front of a crowd of around 5,500, Hospital scored after just nine minutes through W. McGrory and Billy Woods added a second for a half-time lead of two goals to nil. A third was added from the penalty spot by A. Gibb midway through the second half. Hospital conceded a late consolation goal from Merv Gordon. The referee, W.P. Smith of Otago, was the first non-Wellingtonian to control a final.
