,b>Victory Well Deserved at Airdrie.,p>HOMESTERS FAIL AT PENALTY. Aberdeen A went on their triumphant way when they defeated Airdrie A in a Scottish Alliance fixture. At the outset the game was on very even lines, both ends being visited, in turn. Aberdeen got moving, however, and would have scored had it not been that Adam was too hasty and rocketed the ball over the bar when he had plenty of time to do better. The game proceeded on fast lines. With half an hour gone McDermid gave the visitors the lead with a fast ground shot which he sent volleying through a mass of players. In the second half Airdrie immediately went on the offensive and made a great bid for the equaliser but Cumming saved brilliantly a fast drive from Chalmers. Subsequently the young Dons made headway. Armstrong put them two up with goal scored from a suspiciously off-side position. It was in positional play that Airdrie were weak and this where Aberdeen could give them a lesson. About three minutes from time Donald netted from a beautiful corner taken by Mutch. The homesters rallied and Airdrie were awarded a penalty, Ross, however, hit the post with the spot kick. Aberdeen were well worth their victory which was gained by a superior understanding and a better idea of how take their chances.
