FOOTBALL. NORTH WALES COAST CUP.—RE- PLAYED FINAL. GREENFIELD v. HOLYHEAD. EXCITING FINISH TO A KEEN STRUGGLE, ANOTHER DRAW. Whether Holyhead or Greenfield will win the North Wales Coast Cup this year is still a very open question. Holyhead evidently do not intend to let the cup, de- part from their headquarters without a hard struggle. Last year they only beat Llandudno at the third attempt, and this year history has so far repeated itself. There is, however, a great difference in one respect, and that is the challengers this year live to fight a third team with the eleven intact. Last season several of the Llandudno players at the third game were suffering from more or less severe injuries and could by no means do them- selves justice. < The game on Saturday was brimful of exciting incidents. Notwithstanding the rain the pace was fast from the outset, and the ball travelled from end to end with lightning-like rapidity. Of the two Greenfield displayed the better method, and their supporters encouraged them for all they were worth. Their tongues were silenced, however, for a brief space, when O. B. Edwards for Holyhead put in a brilliant 'single-handed' run from miidfield right into the goal- mouth. The downfall of Greenfield citadal appeared inevitable, but to the surprise of all and to his own disgust O. B. lifted the ball well over the bar to the delight of the Greenfield supporters. The superior tactics of the Greenfield forwards began to tell, and Collier was called upon to save shots from all angles. Twice he was beaten before half-time, Pearson doing the trick first with a fast shot from a pass by Petrie. The second came from a free kick, well placed by Funival, which Collier allowed to slip between his hands, and the ball had just enough way on it to roll over the goal line and no more. This was a gift, but on the play the Greenfielders fully de- served their lead of two goals. In the second half Greenfield made the mistake of acting an the defensive, hop- ing the lead of two goals would pull them through. Consequently the Holyhead forwards were continually popping away at goal. The Greenfielders stood the seige well for thirty-five minutes, but at the end of that time the inevitable hap- pened, and from a corner O. B. Edwards made slight amends for his failure in the first half by scoring a beautiful goal with an over-head kick. » < Greenfield attacked strongly after the reverse, but failed to find the net, and Holyhead redoubling their exertions had the pleasure of drawing level within one minute of time, mainly though a miskick by one of the Greenfield backs—a most costly mistake. it An extra half-hour was played, but nothing further was scored, and the game will be replayed for the third time on the Council Field on Saturday. Kick-off at 3-15,p.m. < The game was fought out with great determination, but was free from any glaring or vicious fouls. Of course such excitement prevailing there was bound to be a few infringements of the rule, but to the credit of both sides it should be stated that the players appeared to be animated with a spirit of. sportsmanship pleasant to witness.
