COLWYN BAY v. CARNARVON. After having lost three mattches in the North Wales iCoaat League, Colwyn Bay were able last Saturday to make a draw in a hard fought game with Carnarvon. m The ibeams linfd out ae follows:—Carnar- von: G. H. Joines {goal), D. Hughes and £ [It. Jones (backs) J. Griffiths, R. Herbert, and J. Williams i(halves); R. H. Roberts, T. Roberts, Walter Jones, E. LI. Hughes. and J. Jones (forwards). Colwyn Bay (J. HaLwood (goal), W. Jones and H. Tonkin (backs); R. Rowlands, E. Griffiths, T. Wel.1ings (halves); J. LI. Owen, Walter Parry, T. McCann, Moss Jones and HQwell Williams (forwards). Directly the- ball was set rolling, Carnarvon made a dash towards their opponents goal, and Hallwood was called upon to save. End to end play was th^ order for a short time, both learns indulging in, long kicks. Carnarvon, however, had another display of a smart tbit of combination work, and Walter Jones touched tfop goal post with a nice shqfc. Determined to score Carnarvon fti/iin presfced, and the ball wae headed into tho nte1.. » it Soon after Colwyn Bay began to do some splendid play which was kept up for some (time; and, with a fine run, J. LI. Owen centered the ball to McCann, who put in a lightning shot which be&t (the Carnarvon custodian. till Encouraged by their last goal, Colwyn Bay repeated3(y gtqb fthe baJl 'into the front of their opponents* goal, and gained a coiner. This being well placed, Moss Jcnes 'touched the bail into ttasi not scoring number two for C,ol,A- Bay. mmm Tn the second half botih teams did well, Carnarvob, if anything, doing a little better work, although t:reat selfishness was shown at times on the part of the players in not dis- posing with the ball. Both goalkeepers were called upon to save good shots in quick succession. mum Carnarvon, however, obtained a corner, which was placed by Johnny Jones. Walter Jones receiving thei ball at hie foot, banged it into the net. # » The tattle for the lead now became keen, both teams putting some energy into the game. J. U. Owen with a good centre placed th8 ball to McCann who scored number 3 tor the home team. » it » Carnarvon again e-hinled, Johnnie Jones, Walter ones, and T. Roberts doing some fine work, through which Carnarvon were able to equalise. » » When almost on the itick of time, Hallwood made a slight mistake bv coming out of goal, Carnarvon at the time being on the point of scoring, J but, fortunately, the ball went a couple of inchet wide. The ,kine ended in a draw of 3 goals, both teams, which were evenly matched, having played w.ell on the wihole. With reference to Ithe Colwyn Bay v. Car- narvon match another correspondent writes:- The Colwyn! Bay match was an excellent game, and 'Carnarvon a^e to be heartily con- gratulated on bringing home a point. Owing to minor accidents they had again to put a depleted team on the field, playinc three reserves. It was a ding-dong game, and halt 9 time arrived with the score 2-2. Colwyn Bay took the lead early in the second, half, only to find Carnarvon equalising- again a~>d making splendid efforts to secure tthe full points. Carnarvon played' a very plucky game, and with a little ludk could have secured both1 points. Johnnie Jones and Lloyd Hugh-os played. a delightful game on the left, and completely baffled the opposition. Lloyd Hughes is a very promising player, and the Carnarvon Executive would do well to give him further trials. The veterans Tom Roberts and J. Griffith played- very well despite their many years' football. The backs were shaky but showed decided improvement towards the end of the game. G. H. Jones was in good iform and defended his fort well. Colwyn Bay played their strongest team of the season and promised well for future games. » • The on the Oval between Carnarvon Juciors and Llangefni was really enjoyable, and the juniors soon proved that they are very "hot stuff." Llangefni turned out a very strong side, including as it did, Stanley. Davies. the ex-Oxonian, and Hugh Jones, of the (Holyhead Swifts. » tit Both teams were very evenly matched at the start.. Carnarvon Scored first .fTom a penalty, R. Trevor Roberts ett.ng with a clinking shot. (Llangeifni soon equalised with a deceiving cross shot, which the custodian mis- j-udgeldand failed to touch. Bohanna gave Carnarvon the lead again with a beautiful shot, from long range. Half-time arrived with Car- narvon leading by 24. it The second half saw Carnarvon again press- Mg, and they soon added four more goals. Llangefni responded with another goal, and a pleasant game came to a finish with the scores 6-2 for Carnarvon, Carnarvon Juniors are a really 600.1 tenm, and ought to do well and go far in junior' matches. Th& forward's were all good. Bo- hanna .3,nd Trevor Roberts make a good wing, but both are guilty of selfishness. Land has an admirable command of the ball, but could do with more dash and push. John Jones is a very neat player and Ellis Williams improved considerably towards the end of the game, The halves were all good, especially Morton and 8,e'ttfle. /Lovell at back is a corning; player and deserves a trial with the seniors. Willie in; goal was splendid, and showed clearly how versatile a player he is. iOn Saturday the Juniors play Giroeslon on GlynIUfon Park. This ought to prove an in- teresting game and afford excellent practice to the Juniors, in view of their cup-tie at Pwll- heli on the 7th of, tNbvemibter. Play up, Juniors, you promise to be a very smart young team. The Seniors wiM entertain the famous "Varsity" team on the Oval. The students have carried all before them this season, and make no secret of their intentions to infliiet a very severe drubbing upon Carnarvon on Satur- day. We shall see what we shall see, but we believe that Carnarvon will be a very hard nut to crack on their own ground. The Varsity will include in their ranks W. ?. Owen. most gentiemanlv and claesv of piayec-s. W. J. Jones and Don Rowlands, of Beauniar-s fame -the one and only "Tcwser"—th: terror of coast goal-keepers: Matthews. of Wrea- ham Combinaijn, ard T. E. Jones, of Rhyl ¡ fame, <
