WOODEN SPOONISTS SUCCUMB AT BANGw-(< AFTER PLAYING A MAN SHORT. (By "RooordT."r Cangor Reserve 4 Pwllheli 0 The woolen spooaists ot th'e League were rlbe visitors at Bangor on Saturday. zo C'uuousJy enough both teams turned out with tar. men, the visiitor3 being without Ben. Evans, who did not turn up at all during the game, whilst Bangor were more fortunate in having Arthur Williams, of the 'Varsity to £ 11 up the vacancy. One missed Moseley JQ from th-e visiting ranks, lie having eignod on for Holyhead. He was, however, on the field, figuring as the Pwllheli lines- man. Tie teams were: BANGOR RESERVE: Ivor Thomas; D. J. Thomas and Will Parry; Arthur Owen, H. J. Da vies, and Arthur Williams; Rowlands R. Jones, Brown, Tommy Griffiths, and Harry Evans. PWLLHELI: Bob Williams; R. Hughes and G. Evans; W. Griffith, Bob Morgan, an i T. J. Owen Eva.n Hughes, William Hughes, David Hughes, and Abraham Jones. Though a man behind, the visitors were sports- men enough to play two backs instead of the game which, whilst it prevents goals being scored, makes the game most uninteresting for the spectators Banger were the first to get a move on, Tommy Gniliihs sending in a sterling shot, and Rowlands crashed in a second, Bob Williams saving with his ins top Then Bob had to repel another rush, and he so adroitly avoided R. Jones that the Bangorian landed himsetf in the net whiist the custodian cloared. Try as they .would the lieiians could not get the ball out of their own half. True Bob Morgan did send in a "speculator," from which David Hughes ro-I gistered a PALPABLY OFFSIDE GOAL, but the ball was soon back again in the PwIl, heli territory. Arthur Williams sprung into pro- minence with some teliiilg work, finally sending the ball on to Rowlands. Gnff. Evans should have cleared, but missed. and Rowlands rap right up to Bob Williams bl-fore parting with the ball, and he easily scored Bangor's tirst goal. G. Evans made amends soon afterwards with a lengthy clearance, which caused the ball to drop in front of the home goal, but Thomas returned, •■nd with interest. Arthur Owen received a nasty injury just now. Evan Hughes was try- ing an overhead pass, and had his foot on the ball, when Arthur Owen essayed to head right n i tibo result that he was accident- ally k'.CKod in the mouth, and tome of his teeth were broken. r.nd he had to leave the ground. Trie teams were now level in point of number, bJt Bangor assumed the ascendancy, and Arthur V\ iil^iriifi from almost half ground, crashed the baU against the Pwllheli cross-bar, and it flew out to R. Jones, who, at express speed, had i-j Safety in the net-No, 2. The game was far from interesting, and if the home forwards had directed more shots for goal, more goals woul 1 have accrued. Arthur Williams tried to repeat h;3 former success, but W. Griffith was a trifle too smart for him, • and we next saw the l'wli. fteli right wing skipping down the field at ex piess speed, but nothing came of the movement. ^u'ir'cV Evans, passing all opposition,, went along t. he.d at lightning snccd, eventually SCORING "ALL ON Ills OWN," taougji he was, apparently, cffsida when he ^aiL1<vl-r Alter the hand-shaking had ended, t*w.iinea pressed a bit but goals (or anything ;.p- p roach I rig goals) came not. Brown, who won t Bin-ot, though he is one of the best shots in the ltvserve team, at last liad a pet. Bob Wdliarns bemg smart to save as he did. G. Williams hereabouts was responsible for a number of lengthy clearances. Half-time: Bangor Reserve, 3; Pwllheli nil 6ECOND HALF. In the fust, minute of the second half Bangor •ound the net, but the referee disallowed the point. The next item of note was a bit of capi- tal defensive work by D. J. Thomas, who not only tackled well, but cleared just as smartly, l'he homesters got going, the ball was tapped irom foot to fopt, but Harry Evans missed the inal pass. Arthur Owen tried his luck, and the )all flashed past the upright. Harry Evaru; aised a ''lgb by capsizing two opponents for he secon. f time, and from his pass Brown almost lid the ti -ck.
