FOOTBALL NOTES AND NEiVS. By SPECTATOR. Saturday last wa* set apart for the league match Merthyr v. Treoiky. Poor old weather played a very important part in the game, so mnch so that the heavy rains caused the match to be abandoned. It was discovered that the ground was in a most wretched state, and a communication was sent to Treorky to this effect. Another date will be arranged. Tb. cup match between Penarth A and Dowlais was played in very unfavourable weather. Dowlais we-e distinctly live tries the letter team. Of tbe full backs, Evans. the visitors, played a splendid game, and put in some clever saves, and in this respect he outshone Bert Evans, who seemed to be rather slow. Tbe three-quarters on both sides were practically spectators. But the safest player on the field was D. J. Thomas, who never missed fielding the ball. Thomas was pixyed at centre three-quarter aad I believe, given a fine day he will shine better in that position than at half. Fleets' try was a beauty. At half, the visitors were a good pair, but John lien and Evans were too smart for them. D. J. Evans was the best half on the field, and through his triekiness the winning point was registered. Coming to the forwards there was only one pack in it, and that was Dowlais. The Ijest in the scrums were Gus. Jenkins, Ike Williams and D. Jones while in the open Crad. Evans, Griff. Levjis, and D. W. Evans were the pick. Dowlais now play Blaenau Gtvent on Dowlais ground in the scconri round. MERTHTB v. TEEHARHIS.—Played on Thursday last at Trehari is. The home team won the toss, and I kicked off, Mertbyr returning sharply. The Tre- harris forwards ran the hall over the line, and scored a minor. Some good playing ensued, and after some smart passing, Kivilin scored a try for Merthyr from a pass byD. J. Thomas. Almost immediately after- wards, D. J. Thomas scored another try-for the visitors, which was oonverted in good style, ha f-fcin-.e being called soon after. On the resumption of the game, Merthyr kicked well down the field. The leather was returned in good stvle. Some good forward play ensued, and towards the end of the game, D. J. Thomas succeeded in securing another try, Merthyr therefore being the victors by 1 goal, 2 tries, to several minors. GARTH ALBIONST. DOWLAIS HARLEQCINS. Played last Saturday at Dowlais, in miserable weather, before a small number of spectators. Both teams were evenly represented, and played a plucky game throughout, despite the inclemency of the weather. Score: Harlequins, 1 try (disputed), 3 minors; Albion*, nil. Referee, Mr. H.C. Bird. Next Saturday the AlLions play the return match with the Penv- darren Harlequine, when a good game i< anticipated. a A-I' J-)oWLAI|l'- -The first round for the South Wales Challenge Cup was played in miserable weather at Pantyscallog Fteld oa Saturday last before a good crowd of spectators. Dowlais lost the toss and kicked off. The ball was well returned. The game was chieflv waged among the forwards, the visitors hoding their own very well. Half-time score: Dowlais, one try, two minors; Penarth, one minor. The fcatmoi the second half was the grand forward play of t')e home eight, whose rushes and wheels were irrestible, while they dribbled excellently. No further score followed, and the game ended in a win for Dowlais by on. tr*, the minors, to one minor. Dowlai., having w, II the first round, have to play Blaenau Gwent in t p stemd round. MOUNTAIN ASH A. v. MERTHYR VALE.—Piayed at Mountain Ash on Saturday before a fair gate. Mountain Ash lost the toss and played from the town end. After a tight game, in whIch" Ike t\ Jones and Muxworthy showed up well for Mountain Ash, and Ben Davies for Merthyr Vale, play ended in a win for Mountain Ash by 1 goal, 1 try, to 2 tries. BARR-r V. MOUNTAIN ASH.—Played on the Holton Field, Barry Docks, on Saturday. Barry winning the toss, Mountain Ash kicked off against" the wind. Barry invaded the opjx>nents' territory, and eome kicking was indulged in, a minor having to lie con- ceded by the visitor's. Barry pressed, but nothing of interest occurred for some time, owing to the slippery condition of the ball. Passing was impossible, and the B:ury backs resorted to kicking. Phillips, of Mountain Ash, got the ball at the centre, and put in a good run, and, on being collared, parsed to Hopkins, who was immediately pulled down. The latter player soon again got the oval, and made a splendid drop for goal, a minor resulting. After the kick out, Barry charged down on the visitors' liue, and had hard lines in,not scoring. Play was soon in the centre, and Tanner bad a busy time in returning some long kicks. Half-time score Barry, 6 minors Mountain Ash, 1 minor. At the commencement of the second half. some exchange kicking was witnessed, which resulted in favour of Barry The game was now played in a regv«lar downjjour of rain, but continued to be very even, both sides making strenuous efforts to score. Forborne minutes Mountain Ash pressed right on the Barry line, but they were unable to break through the defence of the homesters. Tanner made a mark near the Barry 25 fl ig, and right in front of tho |X)sts, but he failed at the kick for goal. The field was now a perfect quagmire, the play up to the finish being of a loose character. Final score Barry, 6 minors Mountain Ash, 3 minors.
