NORTHERN WELSH FOOTBALL AS- SOCIATION. BANGOR r. CARNARVON.—These old opponents met last Saturday at Bangor in the seco-id tie for the above cup, when a good match ended in a victory for the home team by six goals to none. The ball was started at 3 p.m., the visitors choos- ing to defend the town goal. The afternoon was fine, but owing to the heavy rain which fell in the morning the ground was very soft asid slippery, and in addition there were large pools ot water here and there out of which it wes very difficult to get the ball. 'At first some even play took place, but about teD minutes after the start Robert Wil- liams made a run, and being tackled by the Car- narvon backs, passed the ball to D. Jones who centred, when Smith sent it whizzing between the posts. Encouraged by this success, the home forwards played vigorously, aud being kept well fed by their backs Smith was again fortunate enough to head the bali through making a second score. Carnarvon now had some hard luck, a good shot by Newton going over the bar. Their left wing then ht d a lun, which was ended by J. Jones depositing Cwen on his back, and allowing the leather to roll behind. The Ban- gor left wing then had a run, and.after a struggle with Ingleton, Smith had a fhet at goal, and T. M. Jones charging the custcdian over a third score was effected. After this several good shots were made at the visitors' etronghcli, Williams saving one by giving a corner kick, whi h, however, was not further utilized. A gecd throw in by Charlia Jones was a'co ineffective, being allowed to pass through without fcoucoiug anyone. Just before the call ^f half-titne, Williams allowed a good shot by W. Lewis to sl;p through his hands, thus scor- ing a fourth goal. Ends were now changed, and the visitors' left and right wings made some fine runs, but the defence proved too good in fact, the Bangor goalkeeper was not called upcn during the whole game to defend his charge, though upon several occasions he ran out in his anxiety to obtain a kick after a go-d passing run between Owen and Piic% the ball was fouled nea" the Bangor goa", and from the free kick Newton made a fine attempt tocore, his shot h .wever, as befcre, being too high. The home backs now showed fine defence, F. R. Jones and John Williams, especially showing good form. After a IUU along the right wing by R. Williams, the ball was passed to D. Jones, who put it through, making a fifth goal. A free kick was claimed scou after- ward. the goalkeeper having made a ran with the ball, but it was net ai owed, the same fate befalling a score by J. Jones, which was disallowed on the ground that R. Williams was off side when he passed the ball. A good shct by W. Lewis again proved successful. Though Carnar- von played up most determinedly to the end, they were not able to make any impression up: o the home defence. For the visitors the backs ail played well, R. Newton, especially playing a splendid game, while some flue urns were ni ;do bv their forwards. The home team to a man played well, the re-appearance of John Jones, at back appear- ing to instill them with a good deil of the clash for which they used to be notea. Teams —Bangor E.
