COAST SENIOR LEAGUE. FESTINIOG v. COLWYN BAY. THE QUARRYMEN'S FIRST WIN. (BY INIGO.") Fesitindotg entertained Cohvyn Bay on Satur- day. The home side were sorely in need of points, and having in their minds the trouncing that the Bayites received at Bangor, went on the field with every confidence. The weather was fine, but the ground was like a sponge, and the players at the close looked like a cross be- tween mudlarkers and spotted, leopards. But to the game. The teams lined out in the following order in charge of Referee -VN-el--h, C--ewe: restimog: Goal, VVlhattaker; backs, T. Hughes and M. E. Morris; halves, Arthur Akli- liams, Willi Jones, and W. H. Williams; for- wards, Jack Jones, J. O. Hughes, W. Meirion Janes, W. R. Owen, and E. Lloyd Hughes. Colwyn Bay: Goal, Hallwood; backs, Bob Morris and T. E. Webb halves, C. Mclntyre, W. E. Roberts, and Ned Griffiths forwards, A. Warburton, H. E. Evans, Stanley Hughes, -R. W. Kay, and H. Pritchard. ihe Hay won the toss and elected to play in the direction of the square. Meirion scored the first point for Festiniog after only a few miniurtes, play. This certainliy gave the quanrymen a taste for goals, for in a couple of minutes the danger signal was again hoisted on the! left side, where the two wingers were busy evading Mclmyrc, and later having the best of Morris. A COUPLE OF PENALTIES. W. R. Owen, without any hesitation, went straight for goal, and beat Hallwood with a lovely shot, two goals in two twos looked re- markably like a repetition of the Bangor dose; but the BayiteSl livened up, and the halves were responsiblle for a; couple of visits to Whittaker, but there was little siting in the shots, and the burly custodian easily cleared. This was fol- lowed by a visit to Hallwood. when Meirion Jones gave the custodian a warm handful which he successfully negotiated. Some pretty play was now witnessed on the home right, J. O. Hughes and Jack Jones pressing with excellent vmdetratainding, the final shot giving Hallwood an anxious moment. This pressure was followed by a penalty granted to the home side. Meirion took the kick, and Hallwood cleared into safety, with the result that the Bayiites M, once rushed to the other end, where a free kick was given, in their favour, Ned Griffiths sending against the bar. In the .scrimmage that followed a penalty was awarded against the home side, which Stan- ley Hughes safely placed in the net. The Quarrymen again roused, themselves, and E. Lloyd- Hughes sent an obllique slbot against the outside corner of the net. This, was quickly fol- lowed by a series of attacks on the Bay goal, where Ned Griffiths nobly assisted Hallwood in defending his charge. IThe pressure became acute, and a corner was granted, the place kick going behind. Half time — Festiniog, 2; Colwyn. Bay, I. QUARRYMEN DRAW AHEAD. From the restart the Bayites rushed up on the left, Kay and Prichard making a determined move along the touchline; but Tom Hughes was -equal to the occasion, and placed his side on the attack, J. O. Hughes and Jack Jones racing to the corner. The former shot hard for goal, and clean beat Hallwood, the leather mak- ing its way outwards clean through rtheruelt. This was followed by repeated attacks by the home team, and the visitors' defence was hard put to, and W. R. Owen with the best shot of the day beat Hallwood for the fourth time. A temporary ievival by the visiting attack brought matters in. front of Whiittaker, Stanley Hughes sending in a hot shot, which the home custodian thr-ew away. This was followed by an attack upon Hall wood's charge, and a penalty gained for the home side, which Meirion successfully steered into the net. From this stage to the end the play was of little interest, and conisiswed rniaanly of attacks upon tihe visitors' goal, the Bayites being by this time quite outplayed. Result: Fesftiniog, 5; Colwyn Bay, 1. COMMENTS. For the home side, Wihvttaker did some good work in goal, whilst Tom Hughes was a gr defender. Will Jones was great in the hialif line. The way he kept Stanley Hughes at bay was a real treat. He was ably assisted by Arthur and W. H. Williams. The forward line was mudh strengthened by the inclusion of J. O. Hughes. 'He is a trifle slow, but fully makes up by his headwork. Jack Jones hugged the ball a trifle too much, and found himself on many occasions robbed, otherwise his work was brriL- liant. The left wing were a fine pair, very fast, and gave nothing away. The whole line was ably piloted by Meirion, who plays good foot- ball. For the Bay, Hallwood was continually on the job, neither Morris nor Webb being smart enough, and when the halves were passed there seemed nothing furthez to beat. The halves played a fine game. Griffiths headJed the lliist, Roberts and Mctrutyre also doing excellent work. The forwards veire anything but good—no method; any bind of play, so long as they kicked the ball. Stanley Hughes certainly did several Times- attempt to break through, but had no assistance from his mates. The score repre- sents the game, and it was only thanks to the halves that the score was not doubled.
