Fifth Successive Victory

Aberdeen Reserves Clean Cut Win Over Partick.

Six thousand spectators saw Aberdeen "A" win their fifth successive Alliance League game by defeating Partick Thistle "A" at Pittodrie Park by three clear goals.

Despite a heavy rain and hail storm, play was fast and exciting from the commencement, with the home team showing most dash and enterprise in attack.
Godfrey was early prominent with fine forcing tactics, and from one of his passes Armstrong ran in to open the scoring after six minutes play.
The visitors fought back fiercely, but Cumming cleared from Torbet, and from Adam's slip Armstrong missed an easy chance of increasing his team's lead.
Aberdeen's half-backs continued to dominate matters, and Thistle were generally forced on the defence. It was no surprise when the homesters went further ahead after twenty minutes play. Armstrong and Adam made ground by clever combination, and the last-named completely beat Wilson from fifteen yards' range.
Until the interval Aberdeen were generally aggressive, and McDermid paved the way for Armstrong to score a third goal.

Torbet Shines for Partick.

On the resumption the Firhill team showed to better advantage, but the home defence was equal to all calls. Cumming distinguished himself by saving brilliantly on two occasions from Torbet, who was the most dangerous of the visiting attack.
Aberdeen had long periods of aggression, but both Armstrong and Adam missed good chances. McDermid initiated several promising moves and Wilson had many anxious moments.
Towards the end the visitors came more into the limelight, but they failed to pierce a strong home defence.
