Football. RUGBY. KEIGHLEY 6pts., TREHERBERT 3. The return match between Treherbert and Keiarhley was played at Treherbert on Saturday. Unsettled weather pre- vailed, and the attendance was poor. Gomer Gunn, the renowned Northern full-back and an ex-Treherbert Amateur player, was included in the visiting team. Many changes in the Treherbert team were made at the last moment. Shortly after the start, the visitors were enabled to attack after some useful kicking by Gunn. Duncan and Felton were prominent in defensive work. Galloway relieved with a huge kick. Then the Treherbert forwards made a combined rush, and in order to save, Gunn had to concede a minor. Fitzgerald made an unsuccessful attempt at goal, the ball going below the crossbar. The home for- wards played up well in the open, but Gunn was safe.. Stacey received the ball near halfway. With a great run he broke through the home defence and scored behind the posts. Craven failed with the kick. After good passing by the visitors, Stacey again scored in the corner. Gunn failed to convert. The interval arrived shortly afterwards. Galloway resumed for Treherbert. The home backs brought off a beautiful bout of passing, and Share was grassed near the line. Treherbert again pressed, and the forwards rushed the Keighley line. After a smart dribble Alf. Francis was enabled to score a well-earned try for the homesters. Dingley just failed to add the goal. From now on Treherbert were vastly superior. The stars of the Northern team were Gunn and Stacey. The play of the Keighley forwards was very tame, and the home nack were superior in every respect. Treherbert did not deserve to lose on the day's form. Francis, Felton and Fitzgerald were the mainstays of the Treherbert defence, Felton being espe- cially great. J. Rees was prominent in attack. Treherbert were beaten by the «unp,rior back play of the visitors. The homesters only played nan their Usual team, and if their back division was at full strength, Treherbert would have gained a handsome victory. TREHERBERT EX-SGHOOLBOYS 3pts., COEDPENMAEN 0. Another victory was gained by Treher- bert Ex-Schoolboys at Treherbert on Saturday, Coedpenmaen being defeated by a try. A good crowd witnessed the match. From the start, play was confined to the forwards, the backs having only to defend. The Ex-Schoolboys played aggressively for nearly the whole of the first half of the game, but the ability to score was lacking. No score was regis- tered when the whistle sounded the interval. Treherbert still kept pegging away at the visitors' line after the restart. At last, a mighty rush by the home forwards did the trick. W. Allen won the game by diving on to the ball in a most daring manner after it had crossed the goal line, thus scoring the try for the Ex-School- boys. Coedpenmaen played with extraordinary dash and courage, but they played with- out method. They never attempted to handle the ball, but seemed content to kick freely and rush. Elmore Morgan was the best of the home backs. He played a very conspicuous game. through- out. TREHERBERT ATHLETICS 0, PONTY- PRIDD ALL BLACKS 0. A very hard game was 'played between the above teams on the People's Park, Pontypridd, on Saturday. The ground was soft and heavy, but the weather was favourable.. The visitors kicked off. Some short rushes were indulged in by both teams, and scrums were formed at halfway. The Treherbert backs combined prettily, and through excellent passing came within an ace of scoring, the ball being grounded a yard from the line. From the ensuing scrum the visiting quartet again started passing, but a glorious chance was lost because the ball was not sent out to the wing. By forward rushes Pontypridd invaded the Treherbert half. Their stay there was short, and Treherbert again took up the aggressive. The whistle only just sounded for a knock-on as Salisbury, the Treherbert full-back, dropped a lovely goal from near halfway. This was hard luck for the visitors. The Athletics seemed to improve after half-time. The All Blacks' full-back had to save repeatedly, and he did some bril- liant work. J. Lewis made a powerful burst along the right wing for Treher- bert, but his effort lacked' support. Throughout the second half the visitors kept up a strenuous attack. The for- wards seemed to have forgotten their backs, and instead of heeling the ball, they wheeled the scrums. A draw was a lucky result for the All Blacks, as Tre- herbert were by far the better team. NANTYMOEL (THE LIONS) 8pts., GILFACH GOGH (TE1 WASPS) 0. Much roaring was heard on the Big Field, Nantymoel, on Saturday afternoon last, on the occasion of the meeting of the Lions of Ogmore and the Wasps of Gilfach Goch in a Bridgend District Rugby League contest. The combatants are the two most powerful combinations Ï1 the League, both being rivals for pre- mier position in the League table. The Wasps, previous to the fray, were confi- dent of their ability to extract honey from the carcase of the Ogmore Lion, while the Lioil was determined to retain his kingly sway in ifis own den. The battle began at 4 o'clock, lialf-aiv hour after advertised time, and as after events proved, too late for the contest to be concluded that day, and a rigid observance of the Sabbath prevented the game being restarted on the following day —so the battle remains to be decided on some future date. It is said that certain bees called drones, possess no stings. After last Saturday's display, we are inclined to believe that the Gilfachians' nom-de- plume is a misnomer—it should be drones. r Certain it is their attack on Saturday was entirely lacking in sting. During the whole of the. forty minutes of the game the visitors did not invade the home 25 on more than half-a-dozen occa- sions, and then it was not through any brilliant display of theirs, but owing to bungling on the part of the home defence. The most conspicuous player on the visiting side was the full-back. Si played a very plucky game, which elicited continual applause from both friend and foe. His kicking was superb and his fielding most accurate. The three-quarters were woefully weak in attack, but shone in defence. The forwards, for the first ten minutes of the game, were superior to the home pack, but the heavy state of the ground soon told its tale. Still, they put up a plucky fight. The hero of the home pack was Jack Chilcott, who played a great game throughout. It is a most exhilarating sight to see Jack making strides for the line. He never hesitates, but makes a bee line for the coveted goal, and in most cases his" Balaclavan" charges meet with their due reward. Jack Boobyer gave a splendid display at outside half. Boobyer plays a brainy game, and his openings are the outcome of judgment and conception. Lloyd. at full-back, was not so safe as usual, his recent illness undoubtedly accounting for this yet his mistakes, which were but fe.w, were not fatal. Play up, Lions, and may you win an- other set of medals—as you surely will if you keep up your present form. OTHER SCORES. Blaenllechau Stars 8pts., Ferndale Rovers 6.
ASSOCIATION. PENTRE TEACHERS 2gls., CLYDACH YALE 1. This match was played at Pentre on Saturday. The Teachers kicked off against the wind. Soon after the start Jacky Rogers scored with a fine shot after good play by Owen Evans. Shortly afterwards" Tiger" equalised for the visitors with a fine header from a corner taken by James. In the second half, the Teachers had the advantage of the wind. but no luck attended their efforts until Rogers headed in a finely placed corner by J. Owen. The Teachers have to thank their halves for their victory. The game was finished in cl ar kn PORTH'H.E. SCHOOL 3gls., MOUN- TAIN ASH CIUNTY SCHOOL 2. This match was played at Porth. The home captain won the toss and elected to play up the slope. For the major por- tion of the first half, the attacking was done by the visitors. Their forwards combined well, and showed splendid con- trol over the. ball. Fortunately for Porth, Benjamin was in excellent form at left back. The home forwards were somewhat raggel, and they gave the visiting goalie but little trouble. The first half ended in a score of two goals in favour of Mountain Ash. Playing with the wind and the slope in their favour, the homesters were seen to better advantage. Early in the half, I.Ablett made a splendid effort to pierce I the defence, but his shot was charged down after he had dribbled through to a favourable position. Soon after this, Evans, from well-judged centres, scored twice, for Porth with splendid shots. B«tli sides now strove hard to gain a lead, and Evans again shot through. The liome goal was kept intact this half, thanks to the bustling play of Evan Davies and the sure kicking of Benjamin. FERNDALE ALL BLACKS 0 YNYSHIR ALBIONS 0. The above match was played at Fern- dale last Saturday, before a fair crowd of spectators. The game was fast and open, and proved one of the best matches played on the field this season. Both sides attacked and defended in turn, and the two goalkeepers had to stop some very hot shots. TON 0, MERTHYR 0. This Western League fixture was played on the Ynys Field, Ton, on Satur- day. Much interest was centred in the game, as Merthyr have been doing very well of late. The field was rather sloppy in places, which made the game heavy. As usual in the opening stages of their games, Ton had the worse of matters with their opponents. Merthyr pressed hotly for some time after the start, but after a while the homesters found their feet, and a more even game was wit- nessed. The visitors missed several good chances, their centreing being exceed- ingly poor. Fyfe very nearly did the needful on two occasions, after some pretty work. Fisher, Tossell and Davies, for the Town men, put in some effective work. Chapman and Wightman, both huge kicks, saved their side repeatedly. After the interval, Ton were superior to their opponents, and for a long time the visitors' half was the venue of play. Play of a give and take nature followed, Ton nullifying several fine efforts by most injudicious kicking. Fyfe nearly did the trick again this half, Daw in goal saving finely. Percival, for Ton, played a good game, one or two saves in particular eliciting applause from the spectators. Russell played one of his best games, his power- ful kicks being a feature throughout the game. Johnny Williams still makes the same mistake of toying too much with the game, and thereby gaining no advan- tage. His coolness borders on slowness at times. A. Evans was the pick of the home halves. He plays with vim and determination. Roberts and Bradshaw on the right wing combined well, and played prettily the second half. Bradshaw, though not of the vigorous type of flayer plays a^ clean^ gentlemanly, scientific; Za 111 e: -fyfe at times M*as prominent, and deserved to be more successful. Tommy Davies still keeps up his form. and it is doubtful if any player gets through more work than he during a game. Parry, on the left wing, was quite a failure." He hesitated painfully at times, and showed great want of vim and determination. LEWIS MERTHYR RESERVES 3gls., BRITHDIR 0. A very fast game was witnessed be- tween the above juvenile teams on Satur- day. The homesters, however, were having a day off, and plied the leather unceasingly towards the visitors' goal. Brithdir's defence was poor, but at inter- vals their forwards made it uncommonly hot for the Reserves. LEWIS MERTHYR 2gls.. ABER- GAVENNY 2. The above South Wales League en- counter took place last Saturday, before a meagre attendance. A very stiff game was waged throughout, though good play was conspicuous by its absence. L. Grant, for Lewis Merthyr, played a strong game, and very neatly netted the ball tMrice. Abergavenny, however, were not to be denied, and Griffiths, after a great effort, equalised. The game continued strenuous and ended in a draw. OTHER SCORES. Blaenllechau Zebras 4gls., Treherbert 0. Mardy Juniors 2.gls., Ferndale IVes- leyans 1. Blaenrhondda 3gls., Ferndale Wes- leyans 0.

Shots for Goal, Treherbert Ex-Schoolboys are top of the Second Division of the Rhondda Old Boys' League. They have won 13 points and lost 1. They are still undefeated. The Treherbert Athletics have entered a. protest against Pontypridd All Blacks, because the latter played Tom Shepherd— a player under suspension—against the Athletics on Saturday last. If they win the protest, the Athletics will have 7 points to their credit out of 14. Treherbert N.U. have played 11 matches, and have only won 1. Ton must buck up if they intend to be champions this year. Desultory play is often seen on the Ynys. Several players have the style of toying too much with the ball, from which no material advantage is gained for their side. Johnny Williams has fallen off some- what in his last few games. Ton have played seven matches so far in the Western League. Two have been won, two lost, and three drawn. This is rather unusual for Ton. Forest, MTho replaced Johnny Williams at right half in the game against Mardy, is a New Zealander, though not of All Black fame. He gave a good display, and the committee should certainly give him a further trial. Fyfe has not sent home a shot since the match with the Cardiff Corinthians. This is a rather unusual length of time for the. home skipper to fail to negotiate. Parry, on the left wing, is anything but a success for some time. He appears to have lost spirit in all his games.
