(Canadian Press).—Trinidad played British Guiana the holders, to a one-goal draw in the second round of the Martinez Shield tournament in the presence of the Governor and Lady Hollis and a large crowd to-day. The weather was fine, but the ground heavy following a downpour of rain. Scorers: Bradshaw (Trinidad) and Mittelholzer (British Guiana).

Trinidad were superior in the first half. The second half finished stronger. The goalkeeper Rolph Grant of Trinidad and Robinson of British Guiana were the outstanding players and a game of many thrills was marred by frequent free-kicks.

The British Guiana backs were uncertain at the early stages and the Trinidad halves were good. Harold Achong shot a penalty yards wide. Small of British Guiana held the Trinidad centre forward Bradshaw. The score is a fair reflex of the play.

The teams: British Guiana—Robinson, Angoy, Alleyne, Dare, Small, Alexander, Weekes, Moore, Donald, Mittelholzer, Campbell.

Trinidad—Rolph Grant, Anderson, Merry, S. E. Agostini, Tench, Wilkinson, Hadden, McClure, Bradshaw, Harold Achong, Ellis Achong.

Referee, Mervyn Grell of Trinidad.

Barbados will play Trinidad on Monday in the third round. The Barbados team consist of Forde, Stuart, Seymour Foster, Weekes, Smith, Arthur Foster, Ashby, Leon Foster, Sealey, McIntosh, Paris.
