THE COMBINATION. BANGOR v. RHYL, CRUSHING DEFAT OF THE SAND- MARTINS. (BY "VIGILANT.") The visit of the Rhyl team to Bangor was not considered a very attractive fixture, and it was not surprising to see such a small gate. There is no doubt but that the quality of play in the Combination during the past two seasons has materially deter- iorated. Taking the game all through, it was a heartless kind of affair, with scarcely a ripple of enthusiasm. I am certain that Coast League teams could have entertained us more, and I am not so sure that the Bangor Reserves would be able to account for the so-called Combination eleven in an emphatic manner. One missed the names of Lappin and Frost in the Rhyl ranks- two players who have a classy style of play which is admirable. Although Rhyl were vanquished by seven, goals to nil, I think I express the opinion of most persons present that the score did not represent the play by any means. The Rhyl methods were very so far as they went, but there was on both sides a lack of vim and "devil" if one may sav so, which would have put life into the movements. Some of the movements were like as though the players did not care what happened. I have not seen a match with so little enthusiasm in it for a long while. It is hard work for my esteemed friend "Recorder" to chronicle such a game, and I would like to know what "En Avant" thought of such an exhibition as this. I am certain, that the Carnarvon—Bangor match, on Monday, would have been a far more enjoyable affair.. BANGOR'S FINE GOALS. Arnold Dargie was in one of his best moods, and the peculiar and business-like methods of this stylish player was a thorn in the Rhyl side. To him fell the honour of opening the score from a penalty. Wright, that clever young pivot of the 'Varsity eleven, added the second, aided gallantly by Hughie Davies. Dargie registered No. 3. with a shot like a flash, from the skies, and i half-time arrived with Bangor leading by 3 goals to nil. RHYL'S IMPROVEMENT. Rhyl, as I have said, played a pretty if lazy football, and did good work in mid- field, but erred when near the goal-line. Little William Pritchaxd was pLaying a sparkling game on the outside left, and this young player is always entertaining. He was, however, badly supported by his col- leagues. Oliver was playing a good game for his side and registered the fourth goal in a remarkable manner. It was gently and beautifully placed in the net from amidst a ruck of players. Soon after Dargie put on No. 5 in a bewitching manner, and ere long this same player had footed another clever goal. Two more goals were registered 11 Z, n against Rhyl, who were completely mastered in front of goal work. Bangor won hand- somely, but Rhyl, on their general display, were, not, as I have said, seven goals less in abilitv than their rivals. Final: y Rhy! o.
