Worth the Money.Benefit matches as a rule do not provide very much in the way of really exciting football, but this one could be regarded as an exception, and that despite the sweltering heat. Play was fast and interesting throughout, no effort being spared on the part of the players on both sides to give the spectators their money's worth. Aberdeen were early prominent with fast and clever attacking work, and after ten minutes Jackson headed past Marsh. When Dundee retaliated Blackwell had a magnificent save from Hunter, and when well placed, Ramage shot into the 'keeper's hands. McFarlane got off with a clear field, but, failed in his effort to tip the ball over Marsh's head. Dundee were keen for a goal, but further success came the way of the Dons when R. Bruce, after a rare individual effort, placed the ball just inside Marsh's post.
Dundee Recover.Dundee showed up well in the second half, only five minutes having elapsed when McGinn netted after some fine leading out work by Cassidy. A daring save by Blackwell averted another Dundee score when Farrell was well placed. Marsh again showed his Parkhead form when dealing with rasping shots from Jackson and Crawford. The Dundee shooting was indifferent, but Hunter capped a splendid display by scoring a beautiful goal from 25 yards ten minutes from the end. A draw was quite a good result. Both teams played some splendid football, a feature of Dundee's display being the fine footwork of Hunter. If he would only part with the ball to a little better advantage Hunter would be a really great player. Cassidy kept the line moving well when leading. Aberdeen were sound in all departments, McFarlane and R. Bruce noticeable in a fast-moving, penetrative forward line. Yesterday's game makes the forthcoming League meetings between the great rivals something worth looking forward to.
