FESTINIOG v. LLANBERIS. A SHARING OF POINTS. (Tiv INIGO ".) These teams met on Saturday at New- borough Park, Festiniog. It will be remem- bered that when the teams met at Llanberis, Festiniog was victorious and piled up a heavy score. The home team on Saturday were minus Smith, the custodian, who is on the injured list, having received a kick on his thumb at Carnarvon the previous Satur- day. His place was filled by Davies, the Hettwsycoed goalkeeper. The team was otherwise at full strength, the players lining up in the following order, in charge of the Referoo Vincent Festiniog Goal, T. Davies; backs, Tom Hughes and M. J. Morns halves, Jim Lloyd, Will Jones and \V. H: Willi runs forwards, Bob Roberts, Johnnie Hughes, W. 1. Hughes., H. Collins and W. R. Owen Llanberis: Goal, Dan- iels backs, Bob Lloyd and Owen Morris; halves, Dan Jones, R. Prichard and W. R. Thomas; forwards, Hugh Lloyd, W. R. Williams, G. Buck, D. Roberts, and Willie Thomas. There was a fair company present, when the ball was set in motion, the home right wing at once asserting 'itself. Bob Roberts on the first visit send:"<r wide and Johnnie Hughes repeating the tor 11 uince a minute later. Llanberis gradually got into the home half and Willie Thomas had a pot at goal at long range. The clearance again let the home rght into the shooting area, and Johnnie Hughes missed a golden opportun- ity with almost an open goai. At this point the home side appeared to advantage, but as it afterwards proved they were just being weighed by their opponents, for Llanberis soon got going and really clever football was witnessed The home defence was quite inadequate to the call made upon it, and Davies found himself surrounded by the ) vis'ting attack, Hugh Lloyd sending an oblique shot which Davies failed to reach. The notching of this goal w early on seemed have a deteriorating effect upon the home players, for they hardly ever seemed to do the right thing, and the visitors kept them fairly penned in their own half, and only a spurt from a long kick by the backs relieved matters. A long shot by Will Jones went wide of the mark, whilst David Roberts sent a lightning shot across the goalmouth from which a corner was gained. Bob Roberts got well up when he centred to W. J. Hughes, who tested Daniels with a real hot one. This roused the visitors, and Buck getting possession transferred at Lhe right moment to W. R. Williams, who placed No. 2 past Davies. From the clearance, and as a result ot a kick from near the half way line by Will Jones, the home side .scored number one, and almost before the echo of the cheers had died away a penalty was granted the visitors, Willie Thomas being entrusted with the kick and he scored. HaJf time: Llanberis, 3; Festiniog, 1. THE FLAMINGOS DRAW LEVEL. The restart was marked by even play, most of which was in midfield, the home side being the first to assert themselves, a couple of corners being granted them in quick succession, both, however, were mas- terly dealt with. Bob Roberts tried his luck twice or three times for the homesters, but each time failed. The visitors had now a turn at pressing and they certainly more than held their own. A corner for Festiniog was paitly cleared, when Collins rushed in and scored. Collins again scored from a corner. Final: Festiniog, 3; Llanberis, 3. NOTES. There is one thing certain. It was not the home team's day out." No, it was Llan- beris's day, and they made the most of it. Without doubt, the game throughout was a very clean game, no feeling being ex- hibited To see a game without that tem- per being uppermost is quite a treat. There was footabll from beginning to end, and a good deal of classy play at times. Some splendid footwork and beautiful pass- ing oouts were seen. May we have more of such games. To come to the teams, Davies was not as comfortable as Smith on this class of ground. In the first part of the game the backs were both shaky, and mis- kicks were frequent; neither were the halves in good form. The two outside men were the most < onspicuous, although it was Collins who registered two of the three goals. Still, until the Last twenty minutes of the game the play of the whole line may be characterised as tame from what it shoald have been. For Llanberis, Daniels kept an excellent goal, whilst the two backs were sturdy de- fenders. The half line never gave an inch away with the exception of the last goal, which perhaps was a slight mistake by one of the halves Of the forwards, Willie Thomas was mcKt effective, although the whole line was good and understood each other well. Hugh Lloyd and W. R. Williams made some very pretty efforts at times, being well pivoted by Buck whilst Roberts gave Willie Thomas much good assistance. Play up Llaubeiis you have a lot of good foot- ball in you. 8""C
