FOOTBALL. I 2ND ROUND WELSH SENIOR CUP. RHOS RANGERS v. BUCKLEY I These teams met for the second time j in the above competition on Saturday last J New Years Day at the ground ot the j Rangers, Cae Enion. A record crowd had lined the ropes when the teams lined up I at the centre under; the whisle of Mr Jones I Holywell. Rhos won the toss and elected to kick against the wind, which was very I strong. Buckley attacked rather strong but the Rhos backs were not found nap- ping and successfully tackled all attacks and cleared the leather with fine judge- ment. Rhos played a fast game, and were continually forcing the game, a nice bit of combination Bob Williams net- ed the opening goal with a swift low shot which completely baffled the goal-keeper. The Rangers after this lead the homesters put more dash and energy into their play, and even helped the half-backs when the visitors tried their penetrating power. Roberts got away on the right and raced away and successfully evading all would be robbers and crossed over on to the toe of Davies who drives the leather into the well guarded citadel. From now to the interval Rhos were well masters of the situation. The tricky play of the home left wing gained for them rounds of ap- plause from the spectators. No further scoring took place and when the interval arrived the home team were leading by two clear goals. After the interval both sides made hard attempts but the Rhos men had the wind in their favour and soon had the Buckiey men penned in their own half and com- menced a severe attack on their goal a pass from the right came the way of E W Jones who with a rising shot netted the third goal. There were occasions when the Engineers' dash looked like scoring but they failed to beat Hughes and Joe Griffiths on the defence. Roberts the Rhos outside right with Mathews on the inside played a hard and plucky game throughout, the former scoring from a difficult angle. The half backs of the homesters were a hard-working trio, and j there was little to choose between them. j All three played well and Alf Mathews has rarely been seen to better advantage, he fed his forwards with capital passes. The out-side left was two fast for the visitors right half and full back and his center- ings were usually excellent. The visitors were now completely fagged and shot in fact anywhere from their own goal, the forwards also playing on the defence. The home forwards rushed their goal time and again and the cusodian brought off some of the luckiest saves ever seen on Cae Enion. A pass trom Jones came the way of burly Bob who with a low shot crashes the ball into the net. When time was finished the Rangers had completely routed a team whose hopes were to win by five clear goals.
