Aberdeen 3 - 0 Queens Park
Kick Off:    Main, Lennie, Wood.        
Attendance: 8,000
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen
At Pittodrie, yesterday, in this Scottish League match, Queen's Park opened with a slight wind advantage, but Aberdeen early asserted their superiority. Greig appeared in goal for the home team, and got an encouraging reception, which ultimate events proved to be well deserved. Colman and Hume gave the visiting forwards little rope, and, after nine minutes' play, Wood judiciously headed to Main, who gave Porter no chance, and Aberdeen scored their first goal. Following this up, Wood gave Porter a big task to hold a rocket shot, and he was lucky to clear. Wood was not to be denied, however, and a beautiful solo effort culminated in the cross-bar alone averting disaster. Soye next had a try at goal, after Anderson and Hill had been baulked by Colman and Hume, and Porter deflected the winger's shot at the expense of a corner. Lennie took the kick, and, rushing in, caught the rebound from a defender's head, and registered the second goal, after twenty minutes' play. There was no further scoring in the first half. On resuming, Queen's Park played with great determination, but whilst brilliant individually, their work was sadly lacking in the necessary cohesion. Aberdeen woke up at length, and a spirited movement by the front rank ended in Wood registering a great goal, the ball cannoning off Porter, who got upset. Despite the leeway the visitors played with fine dash, but failed to force an opening. A game in which the victors thoroughly deserved their success thus ended:- Aberdeen, three goals; Queen's Park, nothing.
