| FOOTBALL. COMBINATION. BANGOH v. CHIRK. This match was decided at Bangor on Sat- urday, before a moderate, attendance and in overcast, but otherwise good, weather. Bob Roberts, the home captain, was an absentee, being under suspension, and Sam Roberts was his substitute, this being the only change in the constitution of the Bangor team. Fifteen minutes after the advertised time, Chirk opened hostilities, and within the first minute J. O. Jones was penalised for fouling. No advantage accrued, and T. Thomas essayed a run along the extreme right, but after neatly tricking several opponents, his final effort I went yards wide. Uninteresting ii-idtield play followed, and after Jimmy Jones un- successfully attempted to lower the visi- tors' colours, Wynne broke away, and play hovered dangerously close to the Bangor goal. This movement terminated with a terrific drive from Wynne, which Ted Owen, with considerable skuI, diverted, the ball eventually going behind. An aggre- sive movemeait by the visitors was suc- ceeded by a period of desultory play, both set of defenders indulging in long kicking. Wynne, with a splendid opportunity, shot behind. At length the home forwards broke away, and Dick Owen received a pass from R. Jones, and attempted to dash through the visiting defence. Being sadly hampered, however, by an opponent, he finished by shooting behind. A corner was gained by Bangor, and this was so well placed that the goalkeeper had to con- cede a second, which was cleared, and the visiting forwards reached the home goal by means of a pretty passing movement. Wynne sent in a shot which struck the crossbar, and this was followed by a more accurate centre, which Ted Owen cleverly saved. There was no mistaking the super- iority of the visitors at this stage, and the home goal escaped almost miraculously. Again the home forwards irdre given a chance, but faulty play by J. O. Jones resulted in one of the visiting backs trans- ferring the play to the Bangor end, where several exciting passages ensued. Two capital saves were effected by Ted Owen. The scene of operations was changed, but again thq home forwards were deficient, and after one splendid opening had been missed, W. Lewis presented another, with the same -result-& miserable final effort. The monotony was somewhat relieved by W. Lewis, who sent in a well judged shot, which deserved better fate. Half Time: Bangor, nil; Chirk, nil. The visitors re- opened in a vigorous manner, and im- m^diate^y gaine-d. a comer. The next item of interest was a bully close to the Chirk goal. Then the Chirk forwards made a combined rush, and Ted Owen had to leave his charge to save. He dispos- sessed his opponent, but another Chirk player obtained possession, and sent a drive into the goal. Owen, amidst loud applause, made a remarkable save. A few half-hearted aggressive movements were made by the home forwards, and during one of these, J. O. Jones tested from long range the Chirk goalkeeper, who made a partial clearance, the ball being passed to Dick Owen, and he scored the first goal for Bangor. Towards the finish the visi- tors! made strenuous efforts to equalise, but the game finishedâBangor, 1 goal; Chirk nil. NORTH WALES COAST CUP. SEMI FINAL. CARNARVON v. BUCKLEY VICTORIA.
