Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
The Orion, and Victoria United teams met in a Rhodesia Cup fixture at Cattofield before a large turnout of spectators. The United won the toss, and the Orion kicked off. The Blues were the first to become aggressive, and the Stripes were kept continually on the defensive, and at half-time the United led by 2 goals. On resuming the game became very fast, both goals being visited in rapid succession, but no further scoring took place, and a keenly-contested game ended as follows: Victoria United 2 goals, Orion 0.
