The re-play tie between the above clubs took place on Wettoesduy at Brymbo. It will be ?membered that the previous meeting had to beabdo:ned be- 'fOI'e time through darkness when the Institute ap- peared to be winning by the odd goal in three The homesters were .faÜly conSdent of the result, but owing to the marked improvement of the. Comrades in the latter half, the issue remained in doubt right up to the last. The ground was in a sodden condi- tion after the recent snowstorm, consequently the players were floundering about in mud, being unable to control the ball at critical .periods and frequently coming into contact with the ground. Nevertheless a good game was provided, which proved of an excit- ing nature towardls the, concluding stages. In the initial half the homesters did most of the pressing, the left wingers always being a source of danger, whiist^Glyn Jones proved a veritable stumbling block throughout. Jim I)ake,s, at back, gave a grand, dis- play of defence, saving his goal on several occasions. The visitors were, anything but sure in the first half, but with Watkins and R. Jones at back, assisted by a reliable trio of half-backs, the defence held out with only three goals registereid against them. S. Money, in goal, exhibited great resource, clearing his charge in business-like fashion many times; he cer- tainly could not be blamed forltloo three goals scored. After the change over the visitors played with con- sistency, H. Hughes and Coughliiiu jpaking dangerous excursions on the Institute's goal, and it was not long before the latter reduced the lead. Shortly afterwards the fprmer cleverly dribbled the ball through the defenders and had only the goalie to beat, but owing to the slippery field; he was unable to shoot with his accustomed force, sind Matthias had little difficulty in diverting the leather. Although the Comrades were the better team in this half the Institute did not inte-ad to visit Oowestry by losing heart and, marshalled by Glyn Jones, made some dangerous onslaughts on the visitors' goal period- ically, but the halves and backs we.re on their mettle and frustrated the attacks. I THE PLAY. ° Winning the toss tihe Institute were soofl attack- irg, R. T. Jones sending the leai-her a few inches over the bar in the first few minutes, and Glyn Jones shooting for goal, which was cleared. Some pretty work on the homesters' left wing found Wat- kins on the alart, and he kicked away. Mid-field play followed for some time, but Brymbo forced mat.1 ters and. Waitkins, in attempting to clear, accidental- ly handled in the penalty: area. Jim Davies took the sick, giving Money no chance with a fast rising shot. Spurred by this -early success the Institute forwards began to rally Tound the visitors' goal, leaving the Comrades' forwards unmarked. Watkins kicked into mid-field, and the visiting forwards, seizing the op- portunity, made a bee line for goal. Transferring the ball from the centre to Nke, the latter shot from long range for the top of the net, Matthias springing up saving, but apparently the ball was too slippery to hold land itpassed into the Inet. Direct irom the centre the homesters pressed, a beautiful shot from the toe of Jackson, on. the left, beating Money. At the other end Adams was lying too far back to take advantage of a good pass. Frost was seen to dvautage, break- ing up a combined!- movement. on the left. Two comers feU to the Institute, but were of no avail. H. Hughes made a cQnspiuous run for the Comrades, but, Jim Davies intervened and cleared. Shortly I after Money » £ tved a terrific drive under the bar from the outside left, bat was later beateii by Lloyd. Half- j time arrived in the homesters' favour by 3--1.. time arrived ki the lic After the change over the transformed themselves, and out-played the Ipstitute, for some time. During a scrimmage J. Davies got hurt and was obliged to leave the field, and it was generally thought that a one-back game would be played, thus spoil Lug-the game; but with a good heart the home- sers contInued with two backs, one of the halves filling the vacancy. It was durtng this period the homesters were fortunate. H, Hughes, eluding the defence, was unable to put force behind the ball when only the goalie confronted him, and Matthias saved. With the Comrades persistently attacking it was obvious that they must score, and Coughita notched their second point. Smarting under this re- verse, with the re-appearance of Davies, the Institute played with Tenewedi energy, but the comrades had atit,ained their stride and held them in check. H. Hughes and Coughlin were a constant source of trouble, and came within an ace of equalising. Brym- bo improved somewhat and made several attacks at the other end, but Watkins, R Jones, and the cus- todian were safe. Swiftly transferring the ball the visitors put on great pressure, appeals for a penalty kick being dismissed. No further scoring took place and the Institute earned the right to meet Rhos in the next round after a. good game. Teams:- Brymbo Institute: Matthias: S. Jones, J. Davies; Robt. Morris, G. M.
