THE LOCAL CUP TIES. I INTERESTING FOOTBALL AT STRADEY. The second round in connection with the challenge cup offered by the Llanelly Club to the junior teams, was played off at Stradey on Saturday last. St. Peter's Stars and St. John's faced each other in the first match, Play commenoed very evenly and continued so for about 15 minutes of the first half. Tiien the St. Peter's, who were playing in their opponents' 25, essayed a round of passing which resulted in Lwdwick scoring an unconverted try. After this the St. John's forced the play and almost got over. Nothing of interest took place after this until the call of half-time. In the second half the St. John's shewed up better and made things hot for their burly opponents. However, try as they would, they could not cross the line. Some passing between the St. Peter's backs resulted/in Jim Hughes soring another unconverted try. Final score, St. Peter's Stars, 2 tries; St. John's, nil. The next match was played between the Moon- lights and Pontyberem. It could be seen that Pontyberem were the stronger of the teams as soon as operations were started. The Moonlights -showed better combination, although their forwards were pushed off their feet time and again. Ponty- berem confined play mostly to the forwards. The -Moonlights' backs were now put in motion and Davies got over. Simons negotiated. Soon after the kick out Pontyberem were penalized in a favourable position. Simonsjtook the kick and land- ed a goal, but owing to Seymour touching the ball before it got over the bar, a minor only was given. Again the Moonlights brought off a rusn, which resulted in another unconverted try being scored. Pontyberem now shewed signs of improvement and looked dangerous on several occasions, but through no combination in the back division, the attempts were of no avail. The second half commenced with some interesting play. The Moonlights by superior play scored a try which was converted. The kick out saw Pontyberem going up the slope at a fine speed and one of the wing men almost got over, hebeingpushed into touch neartlieline. Pontyberem invaded the Moonlights' territory several times after this, but failed to score, The Moonlights by determined play managed to score two more tries which were left unconverted. Final score :— Moonlights, 2 goals, 3 tries Pontyberem, nil.
