The opening minute of the game the Aberdeen left wing gave an example of their combination, I and, though ther initial run brought nothing, a second attempt terminated in Blackburn turning in a perfect center from Lennie. In the next minute Niblo dashed off on his own, I and, single-handed, beat the Falkirk defence and registered a second goal. Only a few minutes elapsed ere Aberdeen put on a third goal. Lennie cleverly stopped a long ball, and, after regaining his feet, outwitted Gibson and McKenna.
Immediately on resumption Niblo burst off, and, sprinting down the field at full speed, netted for a fourth time. Simpson, on the Falkirk right, was being starved, but a nice pass he gave to J. McTavish led the way to the laughter opening the Falkirk account. The Aberdeen left wing, after some clever work, caught the fifth goal, O'Hagan being the scorer. In the last minutes Simpson put on Falkirk's second point.
