I THE LOCAL CUP TIE. I I —- I VICTORY OF THE MOONLIGHTS IN I THE FINAL ROUND. The fin d round in the lncal Challenge Cup com- petition, the cup being given by the Llanelly Foot- ball Club, was played at Siradey on Saturday last, between the Moonlights and St. Peter's Stars, Both teams were well represented, a.nd evenly matched. The Stars played down the slope in the first half against the wind. Shortly after the start the Moon lights registered a minor. Soon after the kick out, they were again hovering round the Stars' citadel. However, the defence was too good, and could not be penetrated. The Stars transferred the warfare to the centre, Ivor Lloyd putting in a grand kick. A minute later they brought off a desperate rush, which took them to the line. They were not long here however: Oakley, receiving from the scrum, kicked into touch near ihe 25 flag. The Moonlight forwards got the ball into the open, and dribbled, np to within a few yards of the goal. Davies obtaining, kicked over the line, and drew another minor. The Stars were now seen to advantage and penned their opponents in their own 25. Ivor Lloyd attempted to drop a goal, but Watts picking up, cleared in grand style. A round of passing between the Moonlight backs resulted in one of the wing men being collared on the line. They made several attempts to cross, but each time were driven back. Another minor was shortly afterwards registered by the Moonlights. Half-time was then called, the Moonlights having three minors in their favour to nil. In the second half the game became very exciting, each team making an extraordinary effort to score a major point. The Moonlights were repeatedly called upon to defend their line, which they did exceedingly well. The Stars backs were put in motion, but a low pass to Coles spoilt a good chance. Again the Moonlights cleared their goal, and brought off a splendid rush to the centre. They confined most of the play hereabout to the forwards. The Stars' backs got away agnin. and placed the Moonlights, citadel in great danger. Davies passed out of the sernm to Hughes, who threw to Rees and the latter to Lodwig, who missed the pass when he had simply to waik in. All the chances given them, indeed, were thrown away. Time was shortly afterwards called, leaving the score.- Moonlights, 3 minors; St. Pel cr's Stars, nil. The Moonlights were presented with the cup, and spent a great part of the evening in parading the town with the treasure in their possession. Teams POSITION. MOONLIGHTS. ST. PFTFR'S.
