Keen Duel At Pittodrie

Young Dons' Great Second Half Recovery.

Thrills abounded in the return Scottish Alliance fixture at Pittodrie between Aberdeen "A" and Third Lanark "A. The Young Dons thoroughly merited their victory, though at the interval, with Nicol crippling on the left wing, and the visitors leading 3-1, their prospects were not bright. Love gave the homesters an early lead, but Thirds, playing dashing football, rattled on three in reply.
McLauglan, their centre and two of the five "Newmans" fielded by the visitors were the scorers. In between their 'keeper, another "Newman," saved a penalty taken by Love.

Homesters Take Command.

In the second half the Young Dons took complete command of the situation, and goals by Warnock and Love levelled the score. Warnock put his side on the lead, and on the call of time Love scored a fifth.
Warnock and Love were most prominent in a clever home attack. The latter played very well in the inside berth after Nicol had gone lame.
Gavin and Donald were best in the mid-line, and Sharp's speed and resolute tackling at back averted danger on several occasions.
McLaughlan at centre, and the goalkeeper were outstanding in a good, all-round Thirds' side.
