WALES DRAW LEVEL IN LAST MINUTE

The International match between Wales and England resulted at Cardiff yesterday in a drawn game, each side having scored two goals. The game looked like ending in a victory for England, but in the closing moments of a thoroughly interesting match, Wales saved themselves…

At the end of 17 minutes’ play there came a surprise goal. Ivor Jones dribbled to the left, and, being tackled, sent the ball across to Keenor, who with a long shot scored for Wales, the ball swerving away from Taylor as he moved to meet it…

…although Wales seemed the faster side England equalized after 36 minutes’ play, when Grimsdell gave Williams a good pass, that enabled Chambers to put the ball into goal…

The second half had only lasted three minutes when England were in front. Wilson passed hard forward and Watson, following up, charged down Parry’s kick and dribbled on to shoot past Peers…

Ten minutes from the finish Carr was injured and went off the field, and in one great final effort in the last few seconds of the game Ivor Jones, with a low shot, sent the ball through, after Taylor had saved, and so enabled Wales to secure a draw.
