Football. RYDAL MOUNT 1J. FRIARS SCHOOL, BANG0* (Boys' XI's).—Played at Bangor on Saturday, October 27th, resulting in a win for the visitors by 4 goals to 1. After a quarter of an hour's eVe? play, pretty combination between the Rydal le»r wing and the centre took the ball into the ho«ie goal, and Whitehouse shot the first goal. Shortly afterwards, VV. P. Lewis, after a brilliant single' handed run over half the length of the field, score a second. Until half-time the home team put 111 some good work and kept Remfry and the busy. Upon resuming, P. M. Williams scored for Friars, the goal-keeper being unable to get a the ball owing to the greasy ground. The gaille continued very fast, the backs on both sides beirlg busy. At length, Greenhalgh made a run down the centre his shot, however, was kicked out by the goal-keeper, but cannoned off the Friars' le'1 back through the goal. Thi« piece of g°°a fortune to the visitors somewhat took the ^e3-^ out of the home team, and again the Rydal le'* wing took the ball down. Lewis scoring his secon" goal with a splendid shot. In nowise disheartene J the Friars' forward tried hard to score, but the Rydal defence too good for them while the visiting forwards were by no means idle. Of the Bangor team, particular mention should be made of Rowlands and Hughes, the full backs, while A. Lewis, the right half-back, played a vlgoraU game,—he is the best half the left wing is likely to meet this season. R. Owen was the best of 9 poor lot of forwards. The Rydal forwards playe a very pretty passing game, Lewis, Greeiihalgh, and Dean showing the best combination; BuntinS was the safest of the halves Sisterson was poor, consequently his partner had extra work to £10. The whole team was evidently handicapped by the heavy ground, but might well have displayel a little more dash. Rydal Mount:—R. Remfry (goal) G. E. Sisterson and A. Marsden (b.-ks); ii J. A. Nicholson, W. A. Melling, E. W. Bunting (halves); A. H. Whitehouse, A. C. F. Osborn, A* E. Dean, A. J. Greenhalgh (captain), W. Lewis (forwards).
