[BY "ATHLETZ."] The star of Barry is net ascending. ⢠⢠There was a Large crowd on Saturday last at the Llwyncelyn enclosure, Porth. At the commencement of the game the Unionists were much pushed, but Green saved. Picken was there with his big kicks, but the defence of Barry was good, and Picken's kicking resulted in nothing. ⢠⢠Before half-time the Porth people managed to score, Stone doing the trick from a kick delivered by Parry. This was a neat performance, and deserved the applause it received. 0 0 ⢠W. H. Williams scored the second goal for Porth, though Sutton played a fine game. He had a very busy time and played with his usual coolness, and was the means of saving the visitors from a more ignominous defeat. 0 0 The final score was 2 goals to I goal, Barry being the one. Mr A. W. Williams, Llanelly, one of the most popular and impartial of referees, was on the the field. Towards the close rain fell, and this caused the game to slacken considerably. ⢠⢠⢠Magnificent weather favoured the reserve teams of Porth and Barry on Saturday at the Jubilee Field, on the top of the hill, and there was a respectable crowd round the arena. Porth were of the two the heaviest team, and looked like winning, but man proposes, and it was not so. ⢠⢠The same scores were made as at Porth, but the positions were reversed, the Seconds here showing themselves superior by two goals to one. It was a very hard fight for Porth during the first halt, because they laboured against a very heavy wind, and the common opinion was that when the por- tions were changed Barry would tuff. r. But the superiority of the home team was never more dis- tinctly proved than when the positions were reversed. < < ⢠W. H. Gregory, a Porth first," who acted at goal, was an amusing goalkeeper, especially when about 50 yards from his post, as was the case more than once on Saturday. W. H. appeared to have but indifferent opinions of the capabilities of the attacking eleven, and whisked about. like a monkey, making forage into the interior and playing with the ball; in fact, he carried it too far, and was ultimately the cause of losing a goal by giving one to the others. The Barry West End were strong on Saturday as the Cardiff Albions, whom they played at Bairy. were weak. The game lost much of its interest owing to that fact. Williams, Tolohard, and Morgan (the latter twice) scored for the home team, and the visitors went home rejoicing bur they didn't score anything. Another game played at Barry was that between the Barry District Juniors and Old Boys. This, again, was a one- sided game, the Old Boys scoring nothing and the home team four goals. » ⢠In the Rugby section of the game the Barry Island United team met the Riverside (Cardiff) Club at the former's ground on Saturday, and scored two goals each. The Penarth Corinthians- played the Singletons at Penarth, when the latter had the advantage and came out four to one. Di-tas Powis beat the Canton Rovers at the Jubilee Park, Cardiff, by two goals to one try. A tight match was fought between Penarth Villa and Old Higher Grade, the Villans being beaten by three goals to two. ⢠After their defeat by Cardiff on Saturday last, the Hospitals played a game with Peoarth on Monday. A goodly number witnessed the match. On the day's form Penarth played a good all-round game, a vast improvement on their previous dis- filay. Although the Hospitals were badly beaten rom start to finish, they played pluckily up the time the whistle blew, Penarth coming out winners by 1 goal 3 tries to a placed goal.
