Love Unfortunate.Love was unfortunate when a great shot of his that had the Kilmarnock keeper well beaten was headed out on the goal line by Morton. Most of the good football came from Aberdeen. In style and method and in positional play, they were far superior to Kilmarnock. McDermid's was the directing brain in the attack, and the way he opened out play, and spreadeagled the home defence, was masterly. He and Love initiated most of the promising movements. The Aberdeen halves were of much greater assistance to their forwards than were Kilmarnock's. They consistently forced play, McLaren specially being prominent.
Stout Defence.,/p> Falloon and Jackson put up a stout defence and made no mistakes and Smith handled confidently the shots that came his way. When the first goal came it was overdue, for following the interval Aberdeen had been dominant in attack, and the hot pace seemed to have told on some of the Kilmarnock players, but the Rugby Parkers made a great rally and succeeded in equalising, through Duncan, five minutes before the end. Aberdeen owe their failure to secure both points to their own weak finishing and the magnificent defence by Morton, of Kilmarnock, who had been transferred for the day from his customary place at right-half to right-back. Morton was Kilmarnock's one outstanding player, and undoubtedly saved his team from defeat.
