    WEST HAM, ENGLISH CUP WINNERS LAST YEAR, BEAT THE SPANISH CLUB REAL ZARAGOZA 2 GOALS TO 1 IN THE FIRST LEG OF THEIR EUROPEAN CUP WINNERS CUP SEMI-FINAL IN LONDON TONIGHT (WEDNESDAY).

    WEST HAM SCORED THROUGH DEAR AND BYRNE AND WERE 2-0 IN THE LEAD AT HALFTIME; IN THE 54TH MINUTE CANARIO KICKED A GOAL FOR ZARAGOZA.

    THE SPANISH TEAM SURPRISINGLY REFUSED TO ADOPT THE ACCEPTED DEFENSIVE STYLE FOR AWAY GAMES IN MOST EUROPEAN SOCCER CONTESTS. THE RESULT WAS AN EXCITING, ENTERTAINING GAME FOR THE CROWD OF 35,000.

    IN THE 9TH MINUTE WEST HAM TOOK THE LEAD. HURST SENT A PASS TO SISSONS ON THE LEFT WING. HE DREW THE FULL BACK OUT OF POSITION AND CENTRED ON THE FAR POST WHERE INSIDE-RIGHT DEAR SCORED WITH A POWERFUL HEADER. THEN, A FREE KICK BY MOORE WENT TO SISSONS -- THIS TIME ON THE RIGHT WING. A QUICK PASS TO CENTRE-FORWARD BYRNE WAS HIT FIRST TIME INTO THE NET. THE SCORE AT HALFTIME -- WEST HAM 2 ZARAGOZA O.

    ZARAGOZA CONTINUED THEIR POLICY OF ATTACK IN THE SECOND HALF AND AFTER 9 MINUTES SCORED A MUCH-EARNED GOAL. CANARIO, WHO A MOMENT BEFORE HAD HIT THE POST, DRIBBLED THE BALL INTO THE PENALTY AREA AND PUSHED A SHOT INTO THE NET. FROM THIS MOMENT ON BOTH TEAMS PLAYED VALIANTLY IN AN EFFORT TO SCORE A VITAL GOAL. FORWARDS OF BOTH TEAMS SHOT TIME AND AGAIN -- BUT THERE WAS NO FURTHER SCORING AND WEST HAM WON AN ENTERTAINING MATCH 2-1.

    ZARAGOZA WILL MEET WEST HAM AGAIN AT HOME ON APRIL 28 FOR THE SECOND LEG.
