The replay of the interrupted match between Aberdeen and Hearts, but in the North-eastern Cup competition, to place on Dens Park, Dundee, yesterday. Teams:-
Aberdeen: Mutch; Colman, Hume; Halkett, McIntosh, Wilson; Blackburn, Muir, McNair, O'Hagan, Lennie.
Hearts: Muir; Collins, Philip; Nellies, Hynds, Dixon; Sinclair, Walker, Giblin, Scott, Cole.
Referee - Mr. John Bell, Dundee.
Hearts kicked off, and almost at once the "Wasps" bore down upon Muir. O'Hagan sent in a good shot, which went over the bar. For a time either team could gain any advantage, play being confined to the centre of the field. On the whole, however, Aberdeen appeared to be getting the better of the game, but the Hearts gave Mutch many anxious moments. Lennie forced a corner, which seemed likely to prove fruitful, but Muir cleared splendidly. A determined attack was instituted against Hearts' goal, but without effect. Twice Cole just missed scoring, the ball on both occasions striking the post. One about 5 minutes from the interval, O'Hagan finished up a spirited attack on Muir by scoring the only goal of the match. This helped to enlivened matters a little, and the maroons retaliated, but to no purpose.
During the second. Hearts' got more of the play, and deserved to score more than once. With an open goal and no one to beat save Mutch, Hynds sent the ball over the bar. During the last few minutes of the game, shots simply rained in on Mutch, who defended splendidly.
