c Football. MONTGOMERYSHIRE AND DISTRICT LEAGUE. ABERYSTWYTH v. ABERYSTWYTH. COLLEGE. A large crowd assembled at the Smithfield grounds on Saturday last to witness this match. The students were remarkably quiet and the match was not an exciting one. The Town were the better team, and wore three goals to the good at half-time. It was expected that they would run up the score further, but they did not succeed in making any addition during the second half. Tins being the case. the game lost much of i s interest, inasmuch as the Town goal was never seriously in danger, except at one time, but their custodian was then equal to the occasion. The Town held the upper band during most of play, and penned their oPP^enta m their own quarters all the while. There was no score for a time, but eventually, from a corner, they succeeded in putting the ball into the net. Tommy Rees, it was who took the kick, and Roderick, in trying to save, sent into his own goal. There was an element of luck in this score The two other goals scored by Bob Peake, the first of them, especially, were thoroughly deserved. After some good individual work, he found the net with a lovely kick under the bar. Again he got into his stride, and beating Dickinson, scored his second goal with a low shot into the corner of the net. But Peake had to retire for a while just after re-starting, but, fortunately, he was able to resume play. It was the halves and hacks of both teams who were the most con- spicuous. The two sets of forwards were uisjorgamsed, the College having lost some °v their best men lately through injuries, and other causes, while the Town tried an experiment in playing Arthur Griffiths as outrndo right and Towyn Jones had been slutted back to his old place as outside left, he having played in recent matches as out- side right. Arthur Griffiths, playing for the first time for the Town, evidently suffered from nervousness. Humphries justified the hopes held out of him, and was a great im- provement on his former displays this season. Me put more dash and confidence in his play. T. Rees, Edwards, and Mansell Jenkins p.aved magnificently all through. J. D. Dayies, had not much to do behind such hacks as Green and Jenkins but he saved smartly once in the second half. For the £ â¢1 played a good game, while Dickinson was a tower of strength to his side. Final score Town 3 goals.
