BANGOR R.I. v. CIOLWYN BAY. I (Welsh Amateur Cup: First Round.' I (By" Itoüoroer. ") I Colwyn Bay were the visitors at Ban- gor. on Saturday, in the first round of the Welsh Amateur tups. their opponents being the Rilway Institute. It was the tirst time either team had played on the ground, which Ls situate on rather a.n ex- posed position. The teams, controlled by Mr Tom Jones, Llandudno Junction, turned out as follows:- Railway Institute: O'Donald; Pierce and D. J. Thomas; H. Edwards, Johnson, and paullield; \V. Alherton, J. Jones, D. P. Hughes, W. F. Brown, and Furber. Colwyn Bay: R. Jones, Ben Morris and 1 erl -'Pa,rry Tucker, Morris, and Hart; Lunt, Francis, Edwards, Llew. Jones, and Stanley Hughes. The game opened in a free and easy fashion, tho Bay doing ihost of the press- ing. Stanley Hughes soon came into the picture with a long drive, and other mem- bers of the forward line followed his ex- ample with these pot sh ots, which were tho best method of attack as the Blues" were jklaying down the hill. Bangor, how- ever, scored first. Hughes and John ran the bail up, and the former .^wished it into the net- at express speed. In less than a minute the Bay had equalised per Francis, who tried his luck with a long drive, which went over O'Donald's shoulder into the net, 1-1. Bangor pressed, but they had' to face a couple of hefty backs in Ben. Morns and Ted Parry. D. P. Hughes wended his way towards the Bay goal, when Tue -er li m Later the Bay goalkeeper saved on the ground from Hughie Edwards. Bangor had hard lines from a corner. So far there was not muoh between the teams. From a free kick Atherton compelled the Bay goalkeeper to drop on his knees, and he cleared in the nick of time. A penalty was given against Ben. Morris. Thai sharpshooter, H. Edwards, was entrusted with the shot, but the custodian brought y. OFF A FINE SAVE. I ? I Hi rect.lv afterwards the Bay le-ft wing went down the field at top ope.d, and the ba-11 wa-, to t h ball was crossed to the right, when Francis senlt it into the net. with the side of his foot, 2-1. Hardly had the excitement subsided before- the Railwaymen were buzzing before the Bay goal. J. Jones tried a speculator, which dropped over the custodian s outspread arms into the net- a lovely goal, 2-2. The Railwaymen pressed for all they were worth, and tho Bay custodian performed wonderful deeds. Shots were rained 011 him, but he got the ball away in fine style. The marksman ship of the Institute forwards was remark- ably acourat, Uti(-xi"t(Aly, tjie Colwvn Bay forwards gb-t away, and Francis per- formed the hat trick, 3—2. Half-time: Colwyn Bay, 3 Railway Institute, 2. The Institute scored directly the game resumed, D. P. Hughes almost running tho ba.1! into the net, 3--3. With the ;),(1, vantage of the slope and wind the Railway- men were making things hum. but they had to contend with a line pair of backs, Ben. Morris bping on his best behaviour. Hughie Edwards almost scored with a back kick. There was a continuous pressure on the Bay goal, and the home forwards did everything but score. J. Jones gave Ban- gor the load. but most of the credit be- longs to Atherton, who placed a corner with unerring accuracy. 4-3. Brown, from a pass by Furber, just missed, and Johnson did exactly the same thing direct- I ly afterwards. Then Hughie Edwards, from long range, made the Bay goalkeep- er's hand tingle. Even the home specta- tors 1 CHEERED THE BAY GOALKEEPER tor tus magnificent saves. For the tirst time in the second half the Bay pressed. l a triüo the ball was at the other end, and although closely shadowed, Furber crossed the ball to Atherton, who crashed in a terrific -hot, the ball glancing into the net off the custodian's han ds, 5--3. Brown registered the Institute's sixth goal and Atherton No. 7 (the goalkeeper never saw the baU untii he picked it up from theNnet). Finial: Railway Institute, 7; Colwyn Bay, 3. I NOTES. A defeat of 7-3 looks rather substantial, hut the Bay have no need to be ashamed ot their second visit to Bangor. On the first occasion the Comrades ran up a double ilguro score against them, but it was a different Bay team which played on Saturday. They put up a good fight, e>si>ecially the defence, and were beaten by an exceedingly nippy team. :t: It was an exhilarating game, plenty of <. pep about it, and at half time it would havl' bwn a rash prophet who would have predicted a win for the Institute. The game had been faii-lv even un to then but in the second half the Railwaymen were simply peppering away at the Bay goal, where it. Jones was in fine fettle. He saved shot after hot. and those that passed him would have beaten the majority of goalkeejK'rs. The two full backs were also in grand form, but they could not keep off the nippy Institute forwards, all of whom had their shooting boots on last Saturday. They crashed the ball in at every opportunity at lightning speed. « The Institute custodian has been blamed for allowing those three shots to pass him, but if they were not particularly swift, they were tricky. D. J. Thomas was som", time gettill,g into his stride, but the rest of the team were on top form. Ather- ton's goal in the second half was one of the 40 h.p. deserij*tion, but perhaps the feature of the work of the forward line was the way Furber screwed in shots from the touch I tie. Tho ball did not land in the Bay goal, but right on the tocis of one of the inside men, who, in a trice, had it in the net. L L,i N 1 it I., I A N v. BANGOR J COMRADES RES. J  (or!h Wales Co?.t League—Div. II.). For (he third Saturday in succession these team* met t.ri Saturday, thi.- time TIT i.laniair- teclian, under the auspicc.- of the league. The first meeting re-ulted in a draw, the .-ecoud in a win for Llanfair, while on Saturday, tho Comrades won by six goals to two. It iva.-> a very last name, but the strong wind rendered accurate 1)1:) impossible. I here were no striking illici(telltz,. though both teams played hard until the very end. Bangor against the wind in the first half and were ahead 3-2 at the interval. in the second half, tavoured with the wind, Bangor pressed con- tinuously and scored three more goals.
