REGINA, Friday, - Aberdeen went on a scoring spree against the Saskatchewan All-Stars last night. The first half wasn't too one sided - Aberdeen only scored four - but afterwards. . .
Eight of the Scots scored in this dazzle display. Five goals were put on in the last 15 minutes when the All Stars were completely fagged.
The home team's German born goalkeeper, Gustav Kuhnke stopped 21 shots as Aberdeen peppered the, Saskatchewan goal, then was replaced midway through the second half by Harold Richter, who also played professional football in Germany at one time.


Fred Martin, in contrast had a quiet time. He had only half-a-dozen shots to deal with from the Pairie team, composed chiefly of players with European experience. Pick of' the side was Jim Laweds who was once with Middlesbrough. He tested Martin four times and was just off with two other shots.
Saskatchewan, trying to match the Scots' pace, tired themselves out completely and could not stay the avalanche in the closing stages.
Harry Yorston and Graham Leggat each scored four goals. John Allan had three, Paddy Buckley two and Bob Wishart, Jacky Hather, Hugh Hay and Ken Brownlie one.
Aberdeen leave here tomorrow for Vancouver, where a crowd of about 20,000 is expected to watch their match against Everton.
