Orion 3 - 3 Hibernian
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen

Again the Hibs visited Cattofield and were welcomed with the usual bad weather. Notwithstanding the heavy rain a good crowd turned out and were treated to a high-class exhibition. Both teams played hard and at call of time the Scores stood level: 3 goals each. We look forward to Orion's visit to Dundee on Saturday, and have no doubts that with the present team they will take their first two points off Wanderers.

This game was barely reported in Aberdeen and not at all in Edinburgh. It may have been Hibs' reserves as Hibs had a match at Easter Road the next day.
