Football, ASSOCIATION. TON 3.gls., BARRY DOCK ALBIONS 2. These teams met on the Ynys on Thursday in the qualifying round of the Welsh Cup competition. Ton, to all appearances, took things too easily. Just before half-time the seasiders were the first to open the scoring. A ishort time afterwards Reed equalised for the home- sters. Play from now on became- a little more attractive, and Tom Davies and Parry each put in a goal to Ton's account. Just before the final toot of the whistle, LewitSi netted for the visitors. No doubt the Ton supporters were sur- prised at the display of their pets. Still, it should be remembered that Treharris were to be met on the Saturday, and perhaps this accounts for Ton's moderate display. It would not be well to individualise. with the exception of Roberts for Ton, whose play was above that of his confreres. CWMPARC & TREORCHY UNITED 4gls., MILFORD 0. ^T'his- South Wales League match at Milford had been anticipated with some amount of trepidation by the Rhondda eleven, as the Pembrokeshire men are very hot stuff on their ground and have triumphed over some of the best South Wales organisations. A tremen- dous amount of milage was covered to fulfil the fixtiire, but H'narently the physical powers of the Rhondda brigade were not affected, for they achieved a substantial victory bv brilliant football. Both in attack and defence they excelled, Peake, Dicky Jones, Thoman and J. Evans Ter scoring after clever movements. The trickiness of Peake and George and Dicky Jones was much admired. Mitchell was the star half-back of the game, while the defence of Parton, Goode, and Harry Jones was impregnable. Next Saturday will be the Derby Dav of Rhondda Soccer, for Ton-Pentre and Cwmparc and Treorchy United meet at Cwmparc. The United have a ground record to maintain, which Ton will doubt- less go all the way to break. The kick- off is timed for 3.30, and Mr. Battv, Merthyr, will referee. Cwmparc will be represented by the same team as did so well at Milford. GELLI 2gls., YNYSHIR CRESCENTS 2. i Played at Ynyshir on Tuesday, before a. good crowd. Ynyshir started off with a nice dribble and very soon pressed the visitors in their own quarters1, and from a pass Richards scored for Ynyshir. From the restart the Crescents again scored through Mays. The Crescents were lead- ing by two goals at half-time. On the restart, the Gelli forwards went away with a rush, but were repelled by some excellent kicking by Phillips, the Crescents' back. They were, however, not to be denied, and scored two splendid goals through Britton. The pick of both teams were their full-backs. MARDY lgi., LEWIS MERTHYR JUNIORS 0. The above teams met on Monday at the Mardy Football Field, the visitors being defeated by one goal. The game was very keenly contested from beginning to end, and it was most unfortunate that the only goal scored against Lewis Mer- thyr was put in bv their own half-back. Still, the result fairly represents the game. TREHARRIS lgl., LEWIS MERTHYR 0 A very pretty game was witnessed between the above teams on Saturday last, in a Rhymney Valley League en- counter. Treharris forced the game, but all their efforts were neutralised by the splendid defence of their opponents. They did not have all their own way either, for Trehafod narrowly missed scoring on more than one occasion. However, with a determined effort, in which all the for- wards took part, Treharris found the net with a beauty, and certainly obtained a well-deserved goal. The Hafod boys en- deavoured to equalise with some brilliant attempts, but without good results. TONYPANDY THURSDAYS JUNIORS 3gls., BLAENCLYDAOH ROVERS RESERVES 0. This match was played on Thursday last, before a fair crowd, at Llwynypia, the Thursdays being the superior team. The game was almost at their mercy from start to finish. The scorers were A. Bishop (2) and A. Davies. The pick of the visiting team were Britten and Lowe.
