FOOTBALL. WELSH CUP SEMI-FINAL. ABERYSTWYTH v. CARNARVON. The semi-final tie of the Welsh Cup between Abe-ystwyth and Carnarvon was played off at Oswestry on Saturday. The Carnarvon team arrived on Friday night and the Aberystwyth team with a train load of supporters came on the scene about an hour before the match. The weather was all thac C(,uld be desired and all the conditions were favourable to good football. The North' Wales team in black and red jerseys were the first to enter the ground, being followed a little later by the sea-side team who wtre gree ed with a hearty cheer. The teams were composed as follows :âAberystwyth Goal, L. R. Roose hacks, C. Parry and George Evans halves, W. Jones. J. H. Edwards (captain), and D. M. Evans; forwards, T. Whelan, J. Evans, Marshall, G. Karson, and Oswald James. Carunrvon --Goal, J. H. Evaus; backs, J. T. W iiliams and D. O. Edwards halves, J. Griffiths, D. S. Jones, and H. G Evaus forwards, W. Morris, A. Williams, J. R Williams, T. Roberts, and J. W. Kingsley. The referee was Mr R. T Gough. The ball was put in motion by Carnarvon at 3-30, but tneir forwards imine iately lost it. Aberystwyth made a rush for goal, Marshall shooting a trifl- Wide. From t.he goal kick Oswald James obtained pos- S'Seiou and raced awav, but was fouled. Parry placed the ball nicely, but Edwards cleared. The sensiders continued to press and J. H. Edwards eventually sent in a splendid shoe which Evans managed with difficulty. Aberystwyth were uiven another kick for a foul, vvhicu Parry to; k, and W. Jones tried the Carnarvon custodian for the secema time. Kingsley got away, out when well do..n the field kicked straight in front of him and Michael Evans sent the leather buck again J. H. Edwards after a be-utiful dribble gave to Marshall who sent to Whelao. That player centrtd again and J. Evans p.it j he ball in the net amidst lo.id clu-ers. On restar ing, Carnarvon rusherl away, but were easily brought to a full stop by Parry and Aberystwyth became again dangerous, a corner being conceded them. The Carnarvon backs, who were plaving a s"und game, cleared. A. Williams went away, but Roose was not called upon, the ball g>ing\vide of the THn k. Oswald James brougi t off a pretty run and W heian almost succeeded in scoring. Toe pressure on the Carnarvon defence continued and every moment an addition to the ;core was exp ced. On one occasion tr'e forwards seemed to have the goal at their mercy, but..seemed too excited to know what to do with the ball. Kingsley and Roberts essayed a run, but Charlie Pa, ry upset the conspiracy. A foul granted to Carnarvon en- ahled them to g. t within shooting distance of Rcose, but harried by the backs they allowed the ball to go over the goal line. Some tricky passing on the part of Marshall, Evans, and B-.rson was witnessed and the ball was kept in dangerous proxmity to the- Carnarvon for! Two corners in succession fell to the lot of Aberystwytn, but no advantage was gained. Carnarvon right wing took the leather down the field, but Roose, running out, transferred the globe t,) the other end of the field, where the Aberystwyth cap-ain treated the spectators to an exhibition of dribbling, easily dodging the opposing halves and placing the ball in a good position for his forwards. The only advantage gained, however,§was a corner. Edwards relieved and the Carnarvon forwards got away. Roose ran out and cleared and Marshall obtaining possession, made a brilliant run from one end of the field to the other, but his final shot, which deserved a better fate, went into the goalkeeper's hands. Half time arrived when Whelan was about to take a corner. Scole:- Aberystwyth 1 goal Carnarvon ml. m, me game was resumed in a brisk fashion and within a few minutes, Oswald James tested the Carnarvon custodian. A little later J. Evans sent in a smart shot, but the Carnarvon man caught the ball and threw out. There was a pretty run by James and Barson aud the former sent the leather bang against the corner of the upright aud crossbar.' A second shot struck the side of the net. Aberystwyth pressed and Whel&n made a good attempt to find the net. A foul was granted against Carnarvon and Parry taking the kick as usu d landed the globe in the right spot, with the'result that Barson scored number two for Aberystwyth. After this Aberystwyth seemed as if they thought they had .J_ -1 uoue enougn ana instead 01 attempting to score confined themselves to a game of defence. This had the result of encouraging their opponents who went at it tooth and nail. Kingsley and Roberts forced Parry to concede a corner which, however, proved fruitless. Eu wards, the Carnarvon left back, checked a rush by the Aberystwyth right wing and A. Williaini headed a rush towards Roose. J. H. Edwards was convicted of a foul, bnt the advantage to Carnarvcn was neutralised by the ball going ovfr the line. Play settled down for a time in midfisld, after which W. Jones was called upon to check K ngsley, who, however, continued his career and shot wide. Oswald James raced up the ground and centered, hut the ball finally went out of play. A free kick was granted to Carnarvon in mid-field and from it A. I Williams scored the fir,t gonl for Carnarvon amidst tumuPuou* cheering. Aberystwyth stirre i up a bit, but the players became too excited f, r good play. Two or three fr, e kicks were granted against Aber- ystwyth and the Carnarvon forward" looked dangerous. The game became very fat and a sp-ctator taking the time found that, within thirty eec >nds Ro ue and Evans both dealt with shots. The Aberystwyth halves lost a good deal of ground by continually tnak ng fale throws and toe ball was kept in their side of the half-way line. A corner was granted to Carnarvon and when the ball was shot across Geo. Evans handed the bid! and the Referee gave a penalty kick. V\ iiliams, who took the kick, shot along the ground and the ball passed through Roose's legs, Carnarvon thus equalising amidst further cheering. After this neither side did much aud the game endt d in a draw. Score :â Aberystwyth 2 goals. Carnarvon 2 goals. Iii tbe:evening the Association decided that the tie should be replayed at Towyn next Saturday.
