The Orion were at Peterhead on Saturday playing the town club in a friendly. The days of going to Peterhead and amusldg themselves at the expense of the club are now over, clubs that visit the Buchan capital having to fight for all they are worth for victory. Such was the case on Saturday, when the Orion, who led at half-time by 3-1, narrowly escaped defeat at the finish. This calamity they managed to avert, and instead of being defeated won a good game by 3-2.
