waiter, a few of the more voluble and demon- strative finding their way on to the stand and letting everyone know that they were there. That never-say-die George yr Aur was one of them, but he was philosphocial ramher than noisy. There is small doubt that the 'Chers were greatly encouraged in their display by the leather-lunged sportsmen who came from the Queen of the West." The volubility of some of these gents rather amused and irritated alternately the equa- bility of the minds of "En Avant," Re- corder," and Nemo." THE TEAMS. The following were the tefAir,.s:-Bangor: Ted Owen; Hwfa Williams and D. J. Thomas; Arthur Owen, Stanley and D. T. Davies H. Rowlands, R. Jones (Top Shop), W. Brown, Hughie Davies and D. Evans Llandudno Goodey; Ben Morris and J. 11. Jones; Jack Brown, Tom Johnson and Harold Pearson; Johnny E. Williams, Dan Davies, Cleeve, Bob Davies and Jim Wil- iiams. The referee was Mr. Welch, of Crewe. < THE HOMERS SPLENDID GOAL. The game for some time was a vigorous one. Each side defended well, and there was capital tackling to be seen, evidencing grim determination on both sides. There were no pretty flashes of the ground passing which sometimes 3ve to De seen from both sides. And a great fault with both sides was that they ballooned the b^ll to such an ex- tent that it became irritating. Still all the same the game was interesting to watch until at such times that Hwfa Williams, who could seldom kick straight and let fly the sphere miles out of the circumscribed area. This player to my mind is becoming an egregious sinner in this respect, and I should have thought that his no" ripe experience in the game would have mellowed these crude methods. Llandudno were having the best of matters generally by being smarter on the ball, and giving Ted Owen now and again anxious times. Several attempts to score were fiustrated by him, and Goody at the other end was less troubled From an incursion into the Amateurs territory Arthur Ower. from the right close in sent a pass to the centre, and Hughie Davies got his cranium to the ball and headed the ball quite out of Goody's reach. The success was deservedly cheered, for it was a real treat to the Bangor spectators. OUR LITTLE JIM HURT." A regrettable incident occurred when A. Owen and Jim Williams collided whilst try- ing to head the ball simultaneously. Jim got the worst and was laid out." The game was stopped for the nonce, and J iroes was to the regret of even one, and A. Owen in particular, led off the field, where he remained until the second part of the game. With ten men Llandudno played gamely, and from a pass from the right Bob Davies secured and scored a very pretty goal. This was the index of Bob's return to form, and he was warmly congratulated upon his first useful goal of this season. HOW WAS IT MISSED? When Goody fumbled, or to be more correctly, missed the ball, he over-ran it, and Hi ghie Davies, panther like, hooked on the ball and with a gaping goal in front H.D. to the dismay of Bangorians and the delight of Llandudno struck the post, and the ball re- bounded into play. Such a let-off I have not seen for years. And so the game went on. Johnny Wiltiams-tried a long pompom which brought Ted Owen to his knees. Bangor were well watched, and the defence on both sides (save what I said about Hwfa) was sound. Half time arrived with Bangor, i Llandudno, 1. A ROUSING GAME. Cheers from all sides greeted the reappear- ance of Jimmy Williams, who wore a cap. It may be said to his credit that though badly hurt Jimmy wanted to come on the field shortly before the interval, but he was wisely dissuaded from so doing. The eime became very vigorous ard the Homers made sitrenuous efforts to annex the much coveted two points. The game was still open, but if a draw occurred Llandudno would gain a point and that on Bangor ground. At the same time Llandudno took a point away last season. For a time Llandudno had hard lines-cruel one;. The post was struck and there was a terrific struggle close to Ted Owen. Now it was Bangor's card of momentary triumph in gaining the ball. Now it was that of the 'Chers. The Homers could not get the ball away, nor could the Cormorants net it. The scene was thrilling with excitement, and kept up until the ball was sent down the field to the relief of Bangor. « A MARE'S NEST." From the stand it appeared that a similar scene was being enacted before Goody. The scene was changed. Goody fisted out a beauty, and in a mehe a loud roar went up, which I thought betokened a goal. The hilarity reached the stand, and loud oheers swelled those around the goal and field. But what dismay succeeded it, when it was found the ball had not been in the net, and there was only a goal kick for Bangor. The physiological caprices of the faces of some stand supporters of Bangor were entertaining and instructive. The game was still open, and Llandudno bucked up. » A SENSATIONAL FINISH I The give and take mertihods which ruled for a while had made people calculate the result as a draw. and Llandudno admirers consoled themselves that it was something to repeat the previous season's performance. Hecorder" and i friend discussed the merits and attractions of the Lyceum play The Whip," and were lackadaisical for a wl-le. Time" as flying quick. Shades of night were drawing fast, and the early even- ing chill of a November evening was being felt. Some people wended towards the exit, when alas, a halt was made. The ball came to Johnny Williams. D. T. Davies and D. J. Thomas raced for him. By rare artistry Johnny sent the ball on the ground to the dashing Jack Brown who divined Johnny's j intention, and with a clear course Brown cantered up the field from opposite the stand, and as he was chased by several Bangorians Jack let fly with terrific force with an oblique high teaser which grazed the tips of Ted Owens' up-lifted hands as it flashed into the net. The scene that followed was a memorable one. The Llan- dudno players were all joy in its essence. Mr. J. T. Robe-ts' face beamed serenely at the success Of his club. Mr. Watson was amazed. Thi stnped players ran from all parts of tike field to grasp Jack Brown, and he must have felt rewarded for his feat. And a few moments afterwards time was up. Bangor's first League check had been ad- ministered on their own ground. Llan- dudno's reputation was glorified, and never did a tea at the Wicklow go down with such a joyful aid to good digestion as on this day. I Truly, 'twas a famous victory. Llandudno, 2; Bangor, 1.
