COLWYN BAY v. PWLLHELI. A LACKADAISICAL GAME! (BY "RAMBLER.") The game between these teams on the Colwyn ground was one of the worst I have yet witnessed this season, and on the day's play neither side deserved to win. True, Colwyn Bay played a splendid game during the first half, but the second was simply awful, not a single player on the home side appearing to assert himself in the least, and only for Hallwood they would have suffered a defeat, though having a lead of two goals at the interval. The Bay was at full strength, Hallwood turning out for the first time. The visitors had several reserves in their ranks, the regular players having dis- appointed them in the last minute. Mr. Morgan of Portdinorwic, was the referee, and the following composed the teams — Colwyn Bay: Hallwood; David Roberts and O. E. Williams; Ned Griffiths, Tom McCann and Dick Rowlands; Southern, Stanley Hughes, Phillips, Howell Pritchard, and Norman Pritchard. Pwllheli: Williams; Rowley Hughes and Griffith Davies W.- Griffith, O. Hughes, and T. T. Owen; W. Hughes, R. O. Mor- gan, Ben Evans, David Hughes, and Llew White. Pwllheli started operations before a fair gate, but the Bay were soon in evidence through Stanley Hughes and Phillips. The latter had an opening in the first few min- utes, but he lifted the ball high over the bar. From the goal kick Pwllheli made tracks on the left, David Hughes passing in the nick to time to White, only to see Dick Rowlands rush up coolly, and take posses- sion. Stanley sent in a terrific drive, which crashed against the bar, a lucky thing for Williams. Ben Evan, forced his way through, and W. Hughes was again in evi- dence on the right, but when he was nicely placed he was robbed by O. E., when he kicked out to touch. The thro-,v in saw the visitors make headway, and Hughes gave Hallwood a hot un, which he just managed to clear. Play now ruled on the Bay right. Stanley started a nice move, and when chal- lenged by Owen he passed out to Southern, who flashed round Griffith Evans, and Wil- liams was beaten with a high drive. After this success the Bay were all over their op- ponents, but Rowley Hughes and Griff Evans resisted all efforts, especially the lat- ter but I must say that I did not like his style, and almost all his shots went out of pLay. Norman Pritchard was now busy on the left, a watchful eye being kept on his movements by Will Griffith, who often frus. trated dangerous rushes by tipping into touch. But receiving a pass from Howell, Norman tried his luck from long range with a ground shot, and he must have been de- lighted when he found the ball pass under Williams' boot into the net. This was a foolish thing on the custodian's part to do, as he had ample time to pick the ball up. Though two goals behind, the visitors played up gamely, and up to the interval were pressing, but, thanks to McCann, Ben Evans was never allowed to get dangerous, and during a battle for possession between David Roberts and Ben Evans the whistle sounded for the interval with the score: — Colwyn Bay, 2; Pwllheli, o. sounded for the interval with the score: — Colwyn Bay, 2; Pwllheli, o.
