Glasinfryn 8 Colwyn Bay Celts i Giasiniryri were in great scoring form when they were visited by Co!wyn Bay on Saturday. Reteroe. C.

Continuing, the Swifts ptill held the uuner hand, but Hughio Edwards, while racing up to an unguarded goal, was unfortunately tripped. Nothing resulted from the resultant kick, and the Infrynites pressing again D. P. Hughes .rushed in and added the seoond for his within five minutes of the commence merit. Th wind, which blew diagonally acrces t.he pi-taii., woa, in favour of tOO home'Vers. H. Parry V\ iiliams tried a shot, but not allowing for the wind, th? bail voent widio. Several others of the Swifts had a few casual shots, but were unsuccezsfui. Tho bad had so far onfy gone oaice behind: the Glasinfryn goal line. The Bavites had evidently ioat heart. Proieartly 11. Parry Williams ^emt in No. 3. Two fruitless corners had haon conce-ded to the Swifts, when H. Parry Wiiliiamu was fouled within the penalty area. Hughie I'klward; made no mistake in netting No. 4. G.os.infryn rushaag down again, the tight vviii/g tried a shot whioh D. L. Jones saved, but in saving sent it in Wilson Tlioraias' direction, and he put in the fifth goal. Within a few seconds moro Hughie Edwards had made up the half dozen. THE BAY DEMORALISED. Tho Colwyn Bay detenoe tocmed to become demoralised. But. eocm the Bay began to buck up, and made several good .runs, Wilson Thomas and Fracik Pies--c was oonfliantly allowing to advan- tag- in attack and de-fence. At half-timo bho soore sta-nd: Glasinfryn 6. Colwyn Bay 0. On t, the visitors p'ayed tet- ter, but were still evidently outclassed. O. P. Hughes piercing the Colwyn Bay defence, de- spite the opposition of E. 11. Jones, r-hoc the seventh goal. The Bayites were several times pulled up for tripping tactics, but little ao\ an- tage was taken ot the kicks. The visitors v<ro now pressing, but wero unable to score, though the Glasinfryn full-backs were not extra j_-ood. Several shots were stopped by 11. Hughes—the others went wide. Assuming the aggressive ag -It, the Swifts shelled the visitors' cit< >iei; but D. L. Jones was on his meitle and this goal not being to muddy as the Oliver, he was e.n- abled to bring off several good saves. Play again, centred round the visitors' goal, and the Swifts' "firing lin" had plenty of opportu- nities, but couldn't bring them oTf. Continuing to exert pressure, the Swifts still held the upper hand; nevertlieLess good work by the visitors was frequently witnessed. Play became tamer, resolving itself mostly into end to oiid variety. Hughie Edwards tried a shot, but it travelled over the bar. Swecpirvg down with a rush, R. Jones brought tho ball within range, and neatly scorcd the first point against the Swifts. The home de- fence, while the ball was being brought up for this goal, soanied to have fallen asleep, but this point cheered up the Bay, and they responded with several line pieces of com- bination, but generally came to pieces before the opposing forwards. Retaliating the Swifts rushed up, and Bob Thomas scored -th-e eight goal just on time. FinaJ: Glasinfryn, 8; Colwyn Bay Cclis 1.
