RHYL GAIN TWO POINTS. (By "Dribbler.") Rhyl 1 Whitchurch 0 The Rhyl team on Saturclay managed to ee- cure two points at the expense of Whitchurch, though it was a very close thing, play having been in progress for upwards of aia hour before the needful goal was scored. Although 3.30 p.m. w,to the how fixed for the match it was 3.50 before the Rhyl team ooukl be got together. JThere were several changes a the local team. RHYL: Mark Hughes; W. Williams and Birob; A. Lunit, H. Lappin, and M. Parry; Hornby, N. Pritehard, D. Hughes, T. Harrison, and B. Jones. WHITCHURCH: H. Bingham; A. Peeror and Wright; R. Hughes, W. Jenkins, amd C. Hodgson-, Cater all, Evans, Cooper, Bamford and Edgeley. The visitors set the ball in motion but were quickly pulledi up by B. Jones, who passed to .Harrises. N. Pntohard obtained possession and tried for goal, having hard lines. Peever then had a look in, and clearing with a good shot, gave Caterail a chance. The Rhyl goal was splendidly attacked, and a foul against the home for yards gave the visitors a capital chance, but they failed to penetrate. Williams and Biroh came to the rescue, and feeding Pritchard: that sturdy player cleverly shot in but Bingham saved well. Cooper obtained poeyossion and had a clear run dtown the field, parting to Hodgson when hard pressed by Hughes. Again Btrcih cleared, and Lapp-in and W. Pritehard again made for the visitors' goal. Rhyl continued to press and Harrison had hard lines on several occasions. The visitors' backs proved them- selves a fine lot and retaliating the pressure, things were made very warm for Rhyl, the home side allowing the ball to gleot dangerously close, and they did far too much "skying" instead of clearing. From this to the interval play waa very even both aides having hard lines a.nd equally NARROW SHAVES. Splendid work was done by the right wings, but Rhyl's centre appeared to be far weaker Chan that of Whitchurch. But for the fine die- fence of M. Hughes, Birch and Williams, the first half would have witnessed Rhyl's defeat, as the visiters had the best of the exchanges. After the interval the visitors pressed a great de-al Caberall, R. Hughes and the backs work- up well, while Jenkins also did some fine work. M Hughes was hardly pressed and brought off ■everal brilliant saves, although be placed his ohargfe in jeopardy more than once by running out too far. On one occasion be was knooked over with the ball in his hands, but Birch and WilJuuna rushed between the uprights and cieanxL After some fair work on the home right N. Pritchard passed to Hornby, who qiuckiy forced a corner. The shot was weil- plaood and Lappin headed in, Bingham cleared to fcho home left, where Harrison caught the ball on tho rebound and cloverly landed it in the met.
