FOOTBALL.. SOUTH WALES CUP (2nd round). MARDY 0; MID-RHOjN'DDA 0. A record crowd watched this game at Mardy oil Saturday under un- favourable weather conditions. The visitors won the toss and set Mardy to face a strong wind. The first quarter of an hour saw the Mush- rooms predominant and after Thomas had effected a couple of smart saves play was transferred. As the game developed the homesters asserted themselves, and play became pretty even. The visiting forwards were smarter on the ball and several corn- ers fell to them, Bache placing with judgment, but danger was averted each time. Mardy also forced a few corners, but they, in their turn, fail- ed to score. The second half was a repetition of the first, both sides attacking in turn, but no score accrueing. WELSH LEAGUE. Division 1. FORTH 2; TON PENTRE 7. Porth Athletic, the ex-service men's team, who are making a bold bid to revive the Soccer code in the metropolis of the Rhondda, paid their first visit to the Ynys Park, Ton Pentre, to engage in a Welsh League contest. Starting off in a downpour of rain Ton Pentre monopolised the attack frq' some time, Jimmy L • :i fill oL'Jique shot to no purpose, and soon after the Ton froni line got away nicely. Lowden bowled Wheeler over with a slinging shot which rebounded into play. Inter- passing between Rees and Lowden ended in the former scoring and five minutes later Simpson put the Bclldogs two up. Ton easily main- tained the ascendency in an attack- ing i-icvement close in, and Rees again sent the ball past Wheeler. For the first time Porth became dan- gerous but Hanney rushed out and robbed Williams just as he was about to shoot. Lowden next scored for Ton and just before the interval Outen gave Porth a goal from a pen- alty kick. Porth attacked on the restart, but from then on were simply outclassed, goals being scored by Edwin Rees, Woods, and Jimmy Simpson. Outen scored for Porth. Troughfern, TonV new back gave a fine display and to- gether with Holmes set up a sound defence. TREORCHY 2; CWMPARK EX- CELSIORS 1. At the Cae Mawr, Treorchy, on Saturday, Cwmpark Excelsiors met Treorchy A.E .C. and the latter Wall by two goals to one. The pitch was in a pitiful condition for anything like football, pools of water which were by half time pools of mud were frequently found by the players who were mud covered. A considerable amount of loose play was witnessed, the players by misjudging over-run- ning the ball, particularly the for- wards. Athough the meeting ended in favour of Treorchy, a draw would have been a fitting result. MARDY v. MID-ItHONDDA. I The weather conditions for the Welsh cup tie replay at Mid- Rhondda on Thursday were very bad. The heavy rain of the last few days had transformed the field into v a veritable quaqmire. There was a fair attenance when the teams lined up as follows: Mardy: Thomas; Hugh Jones, J. Jenkins; Warner, Tebbett, Evans; Osborne, Dunkarfield, Fowler Proudman; Pallet. Mid-Rhondda Moody; Dunn, Bain McCullum, Carmichael, Hop- kinson; Collier, Seed, Parrish, Rampton, Bache. Referee: Mr Collins. Grilfach. Mid-Rhondda won the toss and chose to defend the Ely street end. Mardy went off with great dash, forcing a corner which did not materialise. Mid-Rhondda now took up the at- tack and Bache came into promin- ence with a great run down the line. From a corner Bache placed beauti- fully but Thomas cleared. A long shot by Dunn neatly found its bil- let. The Mushdooms were now dom- inating the game and sensational play ensued in Mardy's goal mouth which culminated in Rampton send- ing in a shot which Thomas saved in wonderful fashion. Collier, who was playing a great game, centred accurately and Par- rish sent in a stinging shot which Thomas again saved. Beating Hugh Jones, Bache sent across and Seed headed into the net. Mid-Rhondda continued to press and from a centre by C'Jlier, Seed again found the net wi!u a shot which gave Thomas no chance. When making a dash for the goal Parrish was fouled in flie penalty area and Bain made no mistake with the penalty kick. Try as they would Mardv could not relieve the pres- sure. With Thomas on the ground the Mushrooms had hard lines in not scoring. At half-time Mid-Rhondda were throo goals up. r-. -?.  On resuming Mid-Rhondda penned Mardy in their own territority and after three minute play Carmichael scored with a fast ground shot. Thomas, the Mardy custodian, was playing a wonderful game and saved shot after shot. Parrish from a melee in front of goal s cor el Mid- Rhondda's fifth goal. Thomas was badly injured and had to be carried off the fiell. When only fifteen minutes of the second half had passed, the referee stopped the game. The home sup- pjiters were keenly disappointed, but the conditions had become so bad that Mr Collins had no alternative. It was stated that the replay would take place on Monday next. THE RUGBY CODE. AHK??AYOX 1-1-7; TREHER- Aberavon pressed •> an before five minutes Flynn had dropped a beautiful goal. Treher- bert made repeated attacks but there was no further scoring before thd interval. In the second half W. J. Thomas dribbled up and transferred to Mitch- ell, who with smart judgment dodged the defence and scored a try, hut Thomas's kick failed. TREORCHY v. CARDIFF SCOTTISH. I Treorchy, who have displayed very ] good form this season, were at home on Saturday to Cardiff Scottish, a selected 15 from Cardiff who broths up a strong side. Two new forwards were given a tjfial for Treorchy— P.C. Sid Miles, Cwmpark, who was recently demobilised after serving over four years with the Cardiff City Battalion, and W. J. Davies, All AVhites, Treorchy. The players entered the field in a heavy shower of rain. Two minutes after start the homesters were in the Scottish 25 line, and picking up smartly E. Knapgatc got off the mai k well but he was brought down on the line. II. W. Owen, fullback, relieved the pressure for the visitors with a splendid kick to touch. Later some excellent bouts of passing were made by the home threes and a quick transfer carried play well into their opponents' quarter where Lewis Jones secured and opened the scor- ing for Treorchy with a well directed dropped goal. Again the Rhondda men made a smart movement and Mog Jones kicked across to Knap- gate who made no mistake in cross- ing the Cardiff line, Daley James, full-back, failed to majorise. In the next few minutes Will Powell, W. Morgan, and H. Payne became pro- minent. in the visitors' side and kept, play in the home quarter, but owing to the heavy state of the ground, and the greasy ball accurate passing was impossible. Treorchy forwards got possession and with a rush led by Tom James, gained a long slice of ground. On reaching' their oppon- ents' 25 line, Owen secured and sent them back to within a few yards of mid-field. Occasionally, Beits and Williams, the visiting halves, were exception- ally quick and clever in getting the ball from the scrum, but before their backs got into stride Mog Jones and Knapgate failed. A couple of min- utes before the interval E. J ona- than secured from a scrummage five yards from the goalmouth and dash- ed over with an unconverted try. On the change of ends Treorchy, who were up 10 points, continued) the pressure, but by now the pitch became muddy and the torrential rain completely spoilt what would have been a first class game. Several attempts were made by the visitors' three-quarers to open a bout of pass- ing but they were unable to put on any proper speed. Both sets of for wards played a gruelling game. The visitors' defence proved too strong for the homesters to pierce. The referee, Mr Fred Davies, Treforest, blew the final whistle 15 minutes before the scheduled time, but it was welcomed by the players as well as the spectators, who were ,i,, well as the spect dreii-ched.
