'A' Team Still In The Lead


Aberdeen "A" made a successful journey to Brockville, where they defeated Falkirk "A" by the odd goal in five.
Aberdeen made the running from the start, and Burrell was continually in action, but was only seriously troubled once by David. Although Aberdeen were very much more methodical than the home team, they lacked punch near goal. With 25 minutes gone, however, McKenzie opened the scoring, and ten minutes from the interval Merrie added a second point. Burrell gave a splendid display in the Falkirk goal, but nevertheless the visitors should have retired at the interval with a bigger lead.
Falkirk showed much improved form on the resumption, and monopolised play for a time. Merrie broke away, and Burrell made a great save at the expense of a corner. The Aberdeen centre forward was shooting with accuracy, but the same could not be said of McKenzie, who missed two good chances. Aberdeen once more took matters in hand, and with the end in sight McLaren scored with a long range effort. Soon afterwards Lowe and Jordan counted for Falkirk.
