THE BATTLE OF THE QUARRY- MEN. COLLAPSE OF LLANBERIS. By "Spectator." Blaersau Fcstiniogr 7 Ulanberis United 3 Although defeated to the tune of five goals to nil by Bangor Reserve on the City ground, the previous Saturday, it was gene- rally anticipated that the "Berries" when they entertained Festiniog on the Dolbadam Ground, last Saturday, would at any rate share the spoil, if not win, but fate ruled otherwise. The absentees from the Llan- beris team were W. R. Thomas (PenybrynJ, W. R. Pritchard, and. Hugh Lloyd-two for- wards and one half-back—and their places were taken up by Owen Owens, R. W. Roberts, and W. R. WiUi.ams; whilst Fes- tiniog, who arrived a few minutes late, were able to place on the ground the same players as who drew;with Carnarvon. Mr W. Grif- fith, Penmaenmawr, lined up the teams in the folowing order:- LLANBERIS UNITED: O. J. Owen; G. M. Owen (capt.) and O. Morris; pn Jones, R. W. Roberts, and E. R. Williams; J. Evans, W. R. Williams, G. Buck, Owen Owens, and W. R. Thomas (Goodman-street). BUALNAU FESTINIOG Bob Smith; Tom Hughes and M. E. Morris; J. J. Roberts, Will Jones. and W. H. Williams; Robert Roberts, John Hughes, W. J. Hughes, Jim Lloyd, and W. R. Owen (capt.). The visitors opened with a decisive attack which was cut short by Dan Jones inter- cepting. W. R. Owen after a partial cioar- anoo by G. M. Owen renewed the attack and oontred to W. J. Hughes, who played on to- wards the home fort, out just in the nick of time E. R. Williams cleared. Not in the least dispirited, tie Festinlogians continued the attack, and Johnny Hughes tested the home custodian from long range. Owen par- tially cloaTed, and the ball bobbing from head to head was in the home goal area when Owen attempted to fist the leather out, and missed!—with the result that W. R. Owen, who rushed up, beat his namesake, drawing first blood for the visitors within ten min- utes of the start. The homesters tried to make an imprcesion on their opponents' fort, and after some give and take play in mid- field W. R. Thomas tested Sjnith. The dimi- nutive custodian kept his oolours Hying, how- ever, and was applauded for his skill. The homesters were again in the visitors' territory and Buck securing the leather ran through and BEAT SMITH this time. The Festiniogians now indulged in some spasmodic rushes which proved very disconcerting to the home lot, and during one of them W. J. Hughes headed smartly into the net quite out of Owen's reach. Then W. R. Owen put in the third goal for Festin- iog. From the re-start Buck passed to John Evans and he, evading all obstacles, finished up by scoring a splendid goaJ. Having re- duced the lead to 3-2 the Berries showed play which aroused the excitement of the crowd, and John Evans started another in- dividual run, and had almost gone through the breach when a visiting defender "grassed" him in the penalty area. Dan Jones took. the free kick and had the mis- fortune to strike the bar with a good shot, and the ball bounded back to play. Smith managed to fist clear, and before the home- sters knew what had happened the ball lay harmlessly in the net at the other end of the field, the swift left wingers of the visi- tors having galloped down and passed to Johnny Hughes, who scored with a rather simple, shot. Half-time: F-astiniog 4, Llanb&ris 2. The Festiniog front line were again dan- cing before O. J. Owen's charge, but G. M. Owen came to the rescue and cl-eated, and the home forwards ran through to the visiting goal mouth. Owen Owen centred nicely to John Evans, who when nioely placed bal- looned over the bar. Festiniog were again on the aggressive, but an element was un- fortunately introduced which caused people to decry football. However, the free kicks did not hietlp the homesters much as the visit- ing full backs were allowed too much licence in punting clear. However, the home quin- tette initiated another run, and John Evans forced a corner which was beautifully placed, and from which a goal resulted. The Fes- tiniogians objected, but the referee pointed to the centre.
