Trinidad Guardian Correspondent. San Fernando, Saturday.

Fifth Troop F.C. were only able to get a single goal in their fixture with Myrtle at Paradise Pasture last Thursday afternoon in the series for the Holborn-Ibbett Cup.

Myrtle scored early and the Scouts quickly scored again, but from then Myrtle dominated play and put on 3 more goals without allowing the Scouts to again reach the nets.

The defence lines on each side were tested at the outside Baptiste and King stood out against the Scout forwards while Grant and Billouin kept back the Myrtle attackers.

Bailey put into possession by Cowie ran down and beat the Scout backs, and then centred letting in Cowie to score the first goal for Myrtle.

At the kick off Salomon was penalised for foul play. Taking the kick for the Scouts, Billouin beat Blenman with a fast low shot and brought the scores even.

From then to the final whistle Myrtle kept on the offensive. Barrow helped by Baily put in the second goal. Wilson got possession from a corner kick and scored the third. Then Wilson added the fourth.

Mr. I. R. O. Hart was the referee.


This afternoon Imperial will play Southern F.C. in the same competition.
