NORTEf WALES AMATEUR CUP. CARNARVON v. BEAUMARIS. Beaumaris have been vanquished by Car- narvon after a struggle unprecedented in the history of football in North Wales. When two teams ihave to face eacih other three times in a semi-final it may be taken for granted that they are well matched. Beaumaris this season is a very strong team, the strongest in one respect on the coast, but they have had) to bow down threie times to Carnarvon. What will be the result of their fourth encounter with the Canaries it is difficult to say, but they will have the advantage of playing cn their own ground, and that should add at least a point to their score. Still, it is idle to predict, especially in face of the fact that the heaviest defeat the Anglesey men have experienced at the hands of the Canaries was at Beaumaris. < Put to Wednesday's game. The ground owiri" to a heavy fall of enow was in an execrable condition, slippery, and heavy in the extreme. It was manifest at the start that .good football would be impossible, aaidi Carnarvon adopted the short passing game, at which they are adepts, as the most suit- able under the circumst-anceiz. But Beau- maris were in readiness for them, and cleverly checked their movements. Play ait once became exceedingly fast, each goal be- in -i visited several times during the first five minutes. Gradually the Anglesey men took the upper hand, which they maintained for a few minues. They forced a corner, which was clever- lv cleared and Walter Jones with the bai1 at his toes rushed away, relieving the pwswure. After some hard play in the Beaumaris half Carnarvon forced; a corner, which the Anglesey men c1 eared easily and, securing the ball, made an ugly rush to- wards the Carnarvon .goal. But Albert Griffiths saved sp'endidlv, and nlay was again transferred into the Beaumaris- half. Some fine passing brought the ball to Walter Jones, who stood with his back to the Beau- maris goal. Fe had only Richards to beat, but. unfortunately, he failed to turn in time, and thus miped. a golden chance. I GradiuaJi'v the Canaries shook off the ner- vonsness wh'oh hitherto had afflicted ithem, and thev settled down to play a steady sr."me.
