DONS ON TOP. Huntly Beaten By Four Goals to Nil.
Huntly opposed Aberdeen in a benefit game ay Huntly last night in aid of the Ground Improvement Fund.
Huntly were the most aggressive side in the opening stages, but Aberdeen gradually assumed the upper hand, and kept play in Huntly's half. Yorston had a great try from thirty yards, but Singer saved well. At the other end Smith had a good save from Sey.
Play ran on fast lines for a period, until McLean got through to open the scoring for Aberdeen. Half-time arrived without further scoring.
After the interval the Dons gave a clever exhibition, and further goals were added by McLean, David, and Dickie.
