ASSOCIATION. TREHERBERT UNITED 3gfs., YSTRAD LADS 0. Played at Treherbert on Saturday. Treherbert fielded S. W. Bull at back, but they were minus B. J. Williams at half. Ystrad were at full strength. Treherbert started with the wind behind them. Ystrad were immediately penned in their own half, and after a few minutes' pressure, Jick (of Ystrad) put through his own goal. Treherbert were continually bombarding the Ystrad goal, and were awarded numerous corner kicks, from one of which G. Watkins (centre forward) scored the second goal for the homesters. The teams crossed ■frith Treherbert- two goals up. The wind had abated somewhat when the teams resumed play. Ystrad made great efforts to penetrate the home defence, but were frustrated by the bril- liant play of Mainwaring, Bull, and Paddick. Then Treherbert broke away, and Howard Jones scored with a shot which was fumbled bv the visiting cus- todian. There was no further score. For Treherbert. Mainwaring was mag- nificent, whilst Bull and Ponnell were also worthy of note. T. B. Lewis (cap- tain of Ystrad) was the star of the visitors. PORTH INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL 2gls, RHONDDA P.T.'S 1. -=> These rivals met on Saturday on the School Grounds for the third time this season. Great interest was taken in the match, because the previous two games had resulted in a win for each team. The School kicked off and play was carried to the Teachers' territory. Abel Jones and John Williams saved for the P.T.'s, and eventually it was the turn of the School to, defend. Dick Rees, the goalie, repeatedly, saved for the School. After about ten minutes' play, the Teachers were awarded a free kick close in, and subsequently John Williams net- ted a fine goal. Play became very fast, each custodian having to save often. T. Llewellyn scored for the P.T.'s, but the point was disallowed. Dick Rees saved brilliantly from a shot by Jos. Williams, and a moment later he saved another from a penalty kick which was awarded the Teachers, and taken by Jack Wil- liams. The game was hotly contested after the interval. The School broke away after repeated efforts, and Harry Davies scored the equaliser. Then the Teachers bom- barded their opponents' goal, but, thanks to the excellent display of Dick Rees in goal, no score was registered. After a brief attack, the leading goal was scored for the School bv Wallace Diavies. The P.T.'s struggled hard to equalise the score, but time was called without any •further score. Dick Rees and Wallace Davies were the pick of the School eleven, whilst Tom Jones, Jack Williams and Abel Jones were the best of the Pupil Teachers. CWMPARC & TREORCHY UNITED I 4gls., CARDIFF CITY 2. This match was for South Wales League points, but a bitterly cold north wind and sharp showers of hail considerably affected the gate. George Jones stood down for the homesters, but Cardiff were at full strength. Cwmparc were the first to attack, smart footwork taking Nash and Milford by surprise, and Hayman scored in the first minute. The United made several strong attacks after this, but Nash especially 1 played a resolute game, and Simmonds was not extended until Dicky Jones, after clever inter-passing with Jack Evans, got through with a heauty." Boon made a snlendid indi- vidual run for Cardiff and reduced Park's lead. In the second half, the homesters showed pronounced superiority, and were almost always attacking, but Simmonds, Nash and Milford made a fine defensive trio. Hayman netted. easily after good work by Thoman, and Peake scored from a penalty. Almost on the call of time, T. Evans scored a good goal for Cardiff. LLWYNYPIA -CRESCENTS 3gls., TON- YREFAIL 3. This match was played upon the Part- ridge Grounds last Saturday. It was the I second round of the, Barnes O'Hare Charity Cup. and there was a very fair crowd present at the kick-off. Llwynypia I started against the wind, which was very much to the visitors' advantage. Tonvr- efail soon forced a corner, which Wil- liams headed in beautifully. The visitors, upon resiuming, soon pressed and were awarded a. free kick just outside the penalty area. B. Green scored the second goal, thus leaving the Crescents two goals behind. The attack was soon taken up again by. Tonyrefail, and were awarded a, penalty, and Spear, the captain, notched their third goal. After Tialf-time, Llwynypia had some leeway to make up, and they went at it with no delay, showing some of their fine form. They soon outclassed the visitors, and F. Davies scored a fine goal, giving the Tonvrefail goalkeeper no chance what- ever. They again attacked their oppo- nents' goal, and Crump put the ball through. From the kick-off, Llwynypia pressed, find Old scored the third goal. The three goals were scored in eight minutes. The game ended in a draw. LLWYNYPIA RES. 2gls., MARDY 0. The Reserves journeyed to Mardy on Saturday last to play a League match with the top of the League. HWYlYla played one reserve, giving a new man a trial. About ten minutes from the start, Bert Lewis (captain) scored a beautiful goal from half-way up the field, giving the Mardy custodian no opportunity at stopping. After lemons, the Reserves soon took up the attack, but no goals were scored until within ten minutes of time, when some good passing by the forwards resulted in the second goal. Llwynypia, being now the runners-up for the League, meet Wattstown (the pre- sent champions) next Saturday. Some good play and a. keen fight will be wit- nessed. PENTRE THURSDAYS JUNIORS 3gls.. PORTH THURSDAYS JUNIORS 0. This match was played at Porth on Thursday last. The visitors kicked off with the" wind and soon kept the home- sters on the defensive, and W. Davies all but scored, the home goalie saving in fine style, but B. Richards, rushing up, scored the visitors' first goal. The visitors still kept up the attack, and from a fine for- ward rush Lewis notched another goal. Play then remained more even until- alf- time. The second half opened in favour of the homesters, but the visitors' defence proved sound. A free kick was awarded the Porth team, but Williams failed to score. The Pentre forwards got going again, but shot wide. A. Tiffin scored the Pentre team's third and last goal. The pick of the home team were Evans, Rosser, Williams and Jones, and for the visitors Tom Jones, Davies, Richards and Dale played a good game. To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader.
