Well Earned Points.There was not the array of empty benches we had pictured in our mind's eye at Pittodrie on Monday, but a respectable attendance of about 2000 people to welcome the Queen's Park. The amateurs did not get their full strength to travel after all, and for this they paid the penalty. For that matter, Aberdeen were greatly handicapped through injuries, and were without several of their best men also. The Queen's got going first, and were not many minutes at it before they had Macfarlane beaten all the way, Armour being the marksman. Aberdeen were a bit slow at the start, but once they were set gave as good as they got, and from a scrimmage either McKinley or Edgar equalised. Neither side could improve on this at half-time, when the cross-over score stood level. It was not a bad first half, the play being nippy with plenty of vim in it. Queen's again forced at the start, but Edgar and Lennie were simply irresistible, and ii took the visitors' defence all their time to hold them in check. McKinley was also keeping his wings going, and it was only a matter of time before the home side got the better of the argument. Lennie, with a terrific shoi, gave Grieve no chance, and keeping up the pressure, Aberdeen earned the two points on play. Aberdeen's halves were again the outstanding portion of the team, and kept the Queen's rushes well in hand. The front line of the visitors was splendid at times, but thry played too much on the individual line to secure success at goal. It was a most pleasant game to watch, and proved a better financial undertaking than was expected, the gate being £52, with stands £8.
