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.


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.
