FOOTBALL NOTES. The Rhos Eagle Wanderers played the Bangor Reserves in the semi-final of the Welsh Junior Cup at,' Victoria Park on Saturday, but what I transpired during the progress of the game was I certainly not to the credit of the visiting specta- tors who appeared to fall out amongst themselves as well as with the local football enthusiasts. Many of those who witnessed the game complain of the rough usage they received, and it will be a long time ere they entertain any great anxiety to mix with a Rhos Eagle crowd again. The weather was beatifully fine, and the com- pany which assembled large. Mr Cotton, Rhos- tyllen, was the referee. The game opened very fast, and continued a hard fought contest to the end. Rhos started to press from the first, but Bangor put on a good defence, their goal-keeper clearing in splendid style. The first point secured was for Rhos after about 25 minutes' play, and resulted from a penalty. Bangor followed shortly afterwards with a goal. The score at half-time stood-Rhos Eagle 1, Bangor 1. In the second half Rhos played downhill, and were not long before securing a second goal. After several smart attempts by both sides, Rhos scored their third goal. Bangor for some time being penned in their own goal eventuallybroke away, and with a neat run scoied their second point. The game ended in a win for Rhos by 3 goals to Bangor's 2. The defeat of the League Team of the Town Club at Bangor by 4 goals to 1 came as a surprise and disappointment, especially so after the exhibition the victors gave of football at Rhyl on the previous Saturday. It was never expected for a moment that Bangor would have obtained such a victory over the club, but there are often great surprises in football matches. Rhyl seems to have been unlucky on Saturday. Perhaps the County Council election had something to do with it. The Amateurs went to Llandudno with a weak team, and in addition to being thus handi- capped they lost the assistance of two players before the end of the match, so that they were defeated by 12 goals 1. It could not have been football in the sense that we know it in Rhyl, but the unfortunate part is that both games were League fixtures, and Llandudno gets a splendid lift in the goal average, while Bangor can regard their victory as a step neacpr the medals. There will be an interesting game at Rhyl on Saturday when the return match between the Amateurs and the Town Club takes place on the Belle Vue Grounds. Both clubs will put good teams on the field, and I hope that the match will be of a pleasant character. There is no reason why it should not be well fought, and at the same time be played in a manner creditable to the town North Wales Coast League.
