THE SOLITARY GOAL. The ball was, however, returned promptly by W. R. Roberts, the JisnctBon oenbre-half, and then followed eoane manoeuvring by the home right wing as a result of which Ben Morris found himself suddenly presented with a chance of opening the soore for his aide. The leather flashed into the met quite clear of the out- stretched MndS of the visiting custodian, but it was not Ben Moirrie who had soored. Morris had hesitated, and while ho was thinking about it, Joe Hughes, like a bolt from the blue, rush- ed up and did the needful. It was a goal right enough, but another time Joe Hughes might not be €here Ben would do well next time to shoot promptly and shoot straight. This hesitancy in fact was the home centre's weak- oeas throughout the game. He fed his wings very prettily, but when it came to shooting he seemed shy, and consequently lost thei ball time *fter time when favoua^bly glaoed, 12*ere www two other incidents worthy of note in the first moiety. The first was when Evan Janes, the visiting outside left, secured tho Call, raced along the touch-line, and centred perfectly, about half-a-dozai yards in front of the goal-mouth. The viiiting inside trio missed the ball, but Den- nis Jones got his foot to it, and! crashed in a torrfic shot. Ginctt never saw the bail, and the crowd made certain it was a goal, but to the bitter disappointment of the Lianrwst suppor- ters, the ball hit the crasbar 2,:1,d: rebounded into play, only to bo cleared by Bob Owen. The other incident was when Arthur Richards ran towards tho Junction goal in pursuit of the ball. Gillett ran out of the met, and jumping up, fisted the leather clear, but in doing so caught Richards a nasty kick, which laid him out jux a few moments." The home team kept their one 'gt>al lead up to the interval, but. on the resumption they tevo- ral times came noar losing it. The Roosters were, however, iin poor shooting form, and al- ways failed when anywhere near Gillett. Llan- TWt., nevertheless, played the more scientific football in midlield, but the. Junction men were superior to their opponents in tho vicinity of the net. The Llanrwst goal had sojne narrow escapes during the second half, the ball Ining onto within their I)--malty area. for about three minutes at a time much to the discomfort of the visiting defence, who seemed unablo to get. the bad clea.r. The Junction men played a plucky and determined ga.me throughout, and deserved their points.
