Lochee attacked, and were soon down on King. Davidson was lying handy, and transferred the venue. The home team renewed the attack, and forced a fruitless corner. Collins led the visiting van in fine fashion. Lochee were again on a visit to King, Hannah relieving with a low, strong punt. A beautiful cross by Toman went astray, Collins and McKinley both missing. The homesters still pressed, and McInally scored with a pretty shot. A combined rush by the Aberdeen forwards resulted in the visitors equalizing through Toman.

Aberdeen had all the save in the second period. Robertson gave his side the lead with a magnificent shot. A spirited attack by Lochee was repulsed, and Robertson getting down made the game safe by adding a third goal.

The A's Buck Up.

After a series of in and out games, in which the A team displayed anything but conistent form, they managed to beat Lochee United at St. Margaret's' Park on Saturday. Playing against the wind in the first half, they held their own, and when the pinch came in the second portion "Gowie" did the needful, scoring three. The A's finished with 3-1, the same as the first team did. Aberdeen were splendidly served by their defence when the wind was against them. The halves did well, Davidson being the pick of the three. Robertson, Toman and Collins were the best of the forward line, the weather upsetting the other pair. In Burns Lochee have a great centre forward, and on play he was the best they had. The goalkeeper was also good and saved nicely several grand shots from the centre and inside left.
