LOCAL FOOTBALL MATCHES: I LLAXELLY v. ABEEAVON.—The return match between the above teams was played on Saturday last at Stradey Park in beautiful weather. A great deal of interest was taken in the encounter and an exceedingly large crowd of spectators were present. Aberavon made a very good start, and having pressed Llanelly for sometime, scored a try. This, however, was all they were able to do, for soon after this Morgan Williams scored, and he repeated the feat before the call of half-time. In the second half Aberavon were badly defeated. In a word, they were simply routed. The final score was Llanelly, 2 goals, 3 tries; Aberavon, I try. LLANELLY "A" v. RISCA. -These teams met on the Bird-in-Hand field, Neath, on Saturday last, in the final round for the South Wales Challenge Cup. The Llanellyites took up a strong team, who gave an excellent account of themselves. In all depart- ments of the game the Scarlets outclassed their opponents, and von by the magnificent score of 6 goals (2 dropped) to nil. The scorers were, Tom Samuel, Griff Williams, Bob Thomas, and Walters. Ivor Lloyd and J. Jones dropped the goals. LSTTISBMED] ATE SCHOOL V. PUPIL TEACHERS.— The above match was played on Saturday last on the ground of the former. Mr. Arthur Anthony refereed. During the first haJJ the P.T. 's held the upper hand, scoring a converted goal. The try was scored by R. T. Gape, who was helped over by his fellow centre. From the first the P.T.'s showed that they meant business. E. Andrews and Gape, in particular, played brilliantly, their tackling being so keen as to effectively break up their opponents organization, and whenever one of them got away he was difficult to stop. At the change of ends the P.T.'s forwards showed signs of funking, and in the succeeding serums a good deal of shirking was done, the Intermediate forwards sweeping their opponents off their feet. Had it not been for the backs of the P.T.'s, especially the centres, they would undoubtedly have suffered defeat. As it was, Gee managed to get over with a try owing to some bad play by one of the opposing halves near the line. For the Intermediate A. Randell, Gee, and Leslie Williams played a good game, while Andrews and Gape were the salvation of their side Final score:-PLipil Teachers, 1 goal; Inter- mediate, 1 try. BRYNHAUL HAEEIEES V. RIVER SIDE HARRIERS. —Played on the ground of the former on Saturday. Final score: Brynhaul, C tries; River Side, nil.
