PORT OF SPAIN, Oct. 5.—In a game brimful of thrills and fairly even, Trinidad and British Guiana played to a one-all draw in their Intercolonial Football Tournament match yesterday, Barbados beat Trinidad to-day.

The Guianese scored midway in the first half, Edward Vangenderen netting a fine header. Trinidad, however, equalised in the opening stages of the second half; the Guianese goalkeeper, Nurse, apparently blinded by defenders, let through a "grounder" from Charles. Hereafter both teams had narrow shaves.

Hon. A. B. Wright, Acting Governor, kicked off the match.

BARBADOS BEATEN

In the second match of the series Maple Club gave Barbados a 3—2 beating in their match played on the T.A.F.A. ground. Maple rammed home two early goals, but Barbados reduced the lead before half-time, and equalised early in the second session only to see Maple take the match three minutes to time when centre-half Prior Jones beat Cozier with a long shot.

Other goal scorers for the winners were Allan Joseph and Ignacius Jones; and for Barbados, W. Drayton and S. Chase. Allan Ishmael, the visitors' centre-half, was the outstanding player of the game—Cable and Wireless.
