WITH only ten men the Young Dons gave as good as they got in their Reserve League match at Pittodrie on Saturday, and were unlucky to lose 2-1 to Dundee "A."
The winning goal, the best of the match, was smartlv taken by Cralp, the former Hall, Russell's player, ten minutes from time.
When the game was only five minutes old Aberdeen lost McIntyre, who went off with a foot injury, and near the finish McVean sustained a shoulder injury, but pluckily played on.
The Aberdeen attack gave the visiting defence some anxious moments during the second half. Kelly, with little support, tried to force his way through. Jamieson put in a good afternoon's work on the left wing and was not slow to shoot. He scored direct from a corner.
Dundee's opening goal came from a penalty kick by McAlplne in the first minute after Emery had handled.
Stalwarts in the Aberdeen defence were Thomson, at centre hair, and Curran in goal.
