Arthur opened the scoring I from a pass by P. Jones. A few minutes later 0. Edwards was brought down in the penalty area. Walter Jones was entrusted with the kick and made I no mistake. The Stars then made .their first incur- sion into home pastures, Tom Williams forcing a corner which was nicely placed. Peter Lloyd got his head to the ball and piloted it towards goal, Humphreys saving at the expense of another comer. At the opposite end, Percy Jones was nicely placed but the hezue centre could only graze the bar with a fast shot. After Nicholls had, saved the home goal from downfall when Humphreys was beaten, the Rhosymedre forwards put on heavy pressure and eventually Wallace Jones augmented. From now to j the interval the Stars were continually defending and H. Arthur brought the home total to four goals, with a pretty shot into the, corner of the net. Interval: Rhosymedre 4; Esclusham 0. The first half hour of the second half saw the Stars continually pressing.

Roberts, who had defended well during the onslaughts on the home goal placed his right Wing in possession and Richards racing at top speed was quickly in'the vicinity of the Stars' goal.
