BLAENAU FHSTINiOG STILL UNBEATEN AT HOME. Fcstiniog 1 Llanrwst 0 The Roosters on Saturday met the Quarrymen at Newborough Park, Festiniog. in a League fixture. For some reason or other, the visitors appeared on the ground with five reserves in thoir rank^, one of whom hud not donned the jersey for several years. The homesters on tho other hand were represented by their strongest combination, with the result that up to now they remain unbeaten at homo. It would be well ff the local committoe refused admittance to the ground of disorderly persons. Pressmen a.nd others were subjoctod to highly objectionable criticisms and abuse on Saturday. The weather was exceptionally cold, and a light drizzle pre- vailed throughout the game, making it uncom- fortable for both the players and sp ctators. Referee Griffiths, Fenmaenmawr, lined up tho teams as follows :— BLAENAU FESTINIOG: Smith; T. Hughes and M. J. Morris Jim. Lloyd, W. P. Jones, and W. II. Williams; R. Roberts, J. Hughos, W. J. Jones. W. R. Owen (capt.), ami Evan Lloyd. LLANRWST Dick Jones; J. P. WilLiams and W. Trevor Jones; Ilonry Jones, R. D. Rich- ards, and J. I). Jones; Howell Roberts, W. T. Jones, A. Richards, Pricie Williams, and Dennis Rogers Jones (capt.). The visitors won the toss, and opened the game with the wind in their favour. Kestiniog imme- diately pierced the Roosters' defence, and after a short scrimmage^ forced a corner. Roberts cen- tred accurately, and a melee epsued in front of the visitors' goal, but Dennis secured possession and punted down the field, Hughes returned tho leather, and nnce more the Quarrynion wf-ro swarming in front of Dick Jones, who brought off a fine clearance from W. R. Owen. A Rich- ards then dashed away, and parted to Dennis. A foul against. the visitors, however, brought tho movement to a conclusion. Dennis received from the ensuing free kick, a-nd placed behind. The Quarrymen again attacked, and forced a corner off Trevor. From the ensuing flag kick a melee ensued. One of the Llanrwst half-backs appeared to have charged one of the homesters from behind. The spectators yelied for a penalty, and the linesman ran on tho ground and at- tempted to interfere with the ball which had just been k eked by Trevor. The referee ordered the linesman back, and ordered the game to pro- coed amidst considerable hooting and yelling. Tho Roosters ataeked fiercely, Smith bringing _g i nq off a grand clearance off W. T. Jones. The Festmiog men retaliatxl, Evan Lloyd sending in a beauty from the left, Dick Jones listing out. J. Hughes leaped forward and sent in a "scorcher," which Dick met on his tOC6. A hot scrimmage followed. Dick Jones chtc-hed the ball ju,-t as it was rolling over the goal line, and fell with five or six of his opponents on his back. For a few seconds it appeared as if the goalie, the leather and the Festiniog men would all roll into the net. Considerable excitement prevailed. At length the referee sounded his whistle, and the homesters were penalised for obstruction. From this period to the end of the first hak" the game was of an even character, the first moiety ending without any score on either side. On resuming, the homesters favoured by the wuul, assumed the aggressive, and paid COfi- siderable attention to Dick Jones. Repeated attacks culminated in a penalty against Llanrwst. Tom H-igies took the kick, and easily beat Dick. The Quarrymen kept up the pressure, and for several minute, absolutely bombarded Dick, who brought, off some marvellous clearances. A few seconds before the termination of the game the visitor, left wing ran up the field, Dennis from a considerable distance sending in a beau'jf-, but Smith fielded the leather successfully. Finui score Blacnau Festiniog 1, Llanrvrst 0.
