GEORGETOWN, Demerara, Mar. 6.

A large crowd of football fans numbering about 2,000 witnessed a splendid game in the opening of the Triangular Intercolonial Football Tournament at Thomas yesterday when they saw history made in the defeat for the first time in the annals of intercolonial soccer of a G.F.C. team by a visiting Trinidad side. The visitors won by the off goal in three.

The Trinidad players created a very favourable impression.

They were a well balanced side and were superior in every department to their opponents. They looked smart in their maroon coloured jerseys and showed evidence of being in good physical condition. Team work was a notable feature of their play.

The G.F.C. on the other hand put up a very good fight and it was typical of them not to loose heart and succeeded in scoring their only goal when two down just before the game ended. Their defeat was due primarily to tow things an ineffectively linked up forward line and a shaky left back.
