WELSH SENIOR CUP. SECOND ROUND: RE-PLAYED TIE. BEATEN AT LAST. "CANARIES" COME TO GRIEF AT LLAN- DUDNO. (By "Salopian.") Llandudno Amateurs 5 Carnarvon 2 The above tean-u met on YvTednesday on the Council Field, Llandudno, to. dc,d,- who shall oppose Bangar 011 the lattcr's ground in the third round of the Senior Cup. A very large ItUendance was anticipated, as great interest was shown by supporters of both teams. Several hundreds travelled from the county town wear- ing green emblems, th's being the colour of their pets. Th:s was the third meeting of the clubs to decide the ic-suo, and again Mr Richards, of Bangor, wats the rOiorce, and as on former occas-on; gave general satisfaction. The visitors had the assist, nee of Don Rowlands and C. H. Jonos, of the 'Varsity. Mr Richards lined up the players as follows:— LLANDUDNO: C. Staliard; Ben Morris and J. H. Jones; J. Brown, T. Johnson. and W. Ed- wards; J. E. Williams, Dan Davics, W. T. Cleovc, R. Davies, and J-m Williams. CARNARVON: G. H. Jones; Evan Hughos and C. H. Jones; Don Rowlands, E. Jones, and Jack Williams; R. H. Roberts, Tom Roberts, Walter J'onej, H. Roberts, and J. Jones. The 'Chers commenced facing the sun and a brisk wir.d, but set about their work in excellent style, and R. Daviess was soon to the fore, wend- ing his way through the opposition, but he fin- ished very weakly and placed the bail wide of the net. The home halves were playing a smash- ing game and placed the right wing in posses- sion. J. E. Williams rece.ved from has partner and darted away, hotly pursued by Jack Wil- liams. "J. E." got tn hia drive, however, which was well saved by G. H. Jones. The fleet wrnger came again, and this timo C. H. Jcncs conceded a oorner. The flag kick was a model of accuracy, but after a brief struggle the defence prevailed, and the Carr.-arvon men went away with a burst, and for a sbort time made matters hot for the "Cormorants." At length R. H. Roberts obtained the leather, anj after some tricky work in which he baffled the home defen- ders he centred acrosi the go-A mouth, when J. Jones dashed in and DEFEATED STALLARD amidst frantic cheering. Jack Brown was next conspicuous for some sterling work, but nothing tangiblo accrued. An untoward incident now occured, the genial "ref." being unfortunately struck in the faoa during a melcc and placed liore-de-combat for reveral miiutes. Sympa- thetic cheers announced his recovery. Torn Ro- be it 1 was dung rous, but fell at the critical mo- ment. Tho home goal hal a very narrow escape indeed. The 7Chers now asserted themselves and the halves got their forwards in motion. The "Black and Whites" were several times within an no of equeHsing, fnd it would have beon no more than their due had they done. 53. Jim Williams was the vlcti'iii of a brace of fouls, amd' the ensuing Inso-kiolrs were accurately placed by J. H. Jones, but R. Davies jhcad-"d just o.er the bar o:i, euo'h oooasion. The horao- sters were straining every s.new hereabouts but tiho equa.'oi:or would1 not came. Jack Williams was penalised for <1 foul on J. Brown and JU-ri Morris transferred to J- E- Williams. The vl«it- in-g custodian ran out of his goal as "J.E." drove for iihe not. The leather struck Jones and rebounded more by good luck tihan good mana.gemeait, but to give the goalie his due, lie kept a gra.nd' goal. The ?'ClK-r5" were having cruel luck and rained in a sucec-taskm of shots butt nothing ooomed. The Carnarvon men wore pcuaned in their own quarters at tlhia stage, but at length J. Jones and II. Roberts broke away on their left wing. R. 11. Roberts was next to the fore but sCiot miserably, after same tricky inainOe-uvoriiig. The homesters than bufst away and in f ull ory for goal when Clee ve was pud led up for hands. The free-kick which followed proved disastrous to the Aimstours an tho Car- narvon left W:IPG moved down tih-e field witri clock-like precision. The -hon» defenoe was tem- porarily at see. a.nd the backs hesitating J Jones DASHED IN AND NETTED AGAIN. This was a bifcber pill for the hoiri-esb^rs and tiho- Yisiting supporters were openly jubilant. The players, were not dei-wnlhcaited, however, ajid on the Play tlie visitors were iucky to be two goals ahead, the Oners" imdred were a better toem but lacked the finishing touch which is so vital. A foul by R.^ II. Roberts on R. Davics gave the "All Greens" an anxious !iiin»e, but they managed to clear tiheir lines. Fou/is were very frequent 1'jere.abouts and t'lie referee, hadi his work cut. out t. tl.<) Jaa--Wllliarts wt. ra6h.r abtc-Titiv"3 to his namesake on tha win.g and the referee gave kiii* a word of advioo.
