Janice Rand with candelabra

A match being used to light a candelabra

A match was a small piece of wood treated with flammable material to enable it to light a fire.

In 2266, James T. Kirk told Doctor Leonard McCoy that equipment on the Enterprise was so sensitive that it could find a match lit anywhere on M-113. (TOS: "The Man Trap")

Later that year, Janice Rand used a long match to light a candelabra for Angela Martine and Robert Tomlinson's wedding in the USS Enterprise's chapel. (TOS: "Balance of Terror")

In 2369, Data, posing as Sherlock Holmes on the holodeck, threw a box of matches to one of the characters, trying to prove his handedness. The man threw them back laughing when Data said left hand instead of right hand. (TNG: "Ship in a Bottle")
