Saturday's meeting with the result as already stated. < Blaina visited Cramlin in a friendly encounter. The Viaduct team attacked first, and ere long Evan Jenkins scored. Blaina retaliated, but Hum- phreys, the home back, barred the way. Collier, however, eventually equalised. Prior to the in- terval, Jenkins again scored. The second half fav- oured Blaina, but their shooting proved very inef- fective. Even play followed, but later Blaina scored twice. Cramlin responded on bnt one oc- casion, which gave both teams a division of the spoils, tho score reading three goals an. Tredegar District Notes. FBy "Old Judge. "1 Although a match had been arranged with Blaina for Saturday it could not be played ewing to the ground having been previously, booked by the Hi- bernians, and the Soccer team. The Town Soccer team entertained Newport Bar- barians in the Monmouthshire League, and the game attracted a very fair attendance. The visitors nave a very big reputation, and are the leaders in the League competition, so that a good exposition was expected. The game started in a very un- promising way for Tredegar as the Barbarians went off with a bang in the first minute, but Morgan shot wildly, and lost the chance. Tredegar then improved, and held their formidable opponents well, keeping them out for a long time. and attacking fre- quently, but they could not score. Hammett, who was playing a great pame, ran through and scored a good goal for the Barbarians. € The second half saw Tredegar again do wen. but they lacked the essential for success, viz., combina- tion. In this respect there was a great disparity between the two teams. On occasions the Barbar- ians combined beautifully, and it was only by skil- ful defence they were kept from scoring. Their shooting, too, was not up to the standard of a team of such a record. At length Hammett, by a brilliant piece of individualism, added his second goal. and in a very short time afterwards he again diddled the defence, and netted the ball for the third time. On the whole. Tredegar deserve praise for thp fight they put op, but they, must cultivate better combination to attain anything like success. The Hibernians played New Tredegar in the Rhymney Valley medal competition, on Monday. The game was not characterised by much science. The Hibernians won by three points to nothing. Up to date, Tredegar occupy third position in the League table, with 12 points. Their reoord is ten played, five won, three lost, two drawn, six- ty-eight points for. and forty-two against. It is rumoured that Bryn Arthur a very promising centre-there-quarter, has had a very tempting offer to join a Northern Union club, but he has not taken the bait. Brynmawr entertained Blaenavon on Saturday and won by five points to nil. It was one of the poorest games seen at Brynmawr this season. Ow- ing to the late arrival of the visitors the game did not start until half-past 5 when Jim Foley kicked off for Brynmawr. The viators had a turn at press- ing, and came witbin an ace of scoring on more than one occasion, but the defence of Jack Rees and Jack Roberts was splendid. In the second half Johnson itiled to field, and Jack Roberts running up, kicked towards the goal-line, where Jim Foley just managed to tonch down for a try which Jack Roberts converted. Alf. Williams made a mar- vellous run for Blaenavon, and looked a certain scorer, but Jack Roberts cut across and effected a fine save. For the homesters W. G. Evans, Jim Foley, and Baity (forwards). Jack Roberts and Itery (three-quarters), and W. Morgan (half-back) played well, white Johnson and Aif. Williams (thiee- F. Dibble aud Hudson (forwards), were about the best of the visi- = tors. — ■ —■ ;i
