Cup Final Victory For Aberdeen

After putting up a plucky and times clever display in the first half when they surrendered only one goal, Huntly cracked in the second period of the first of the home-and-home finals of the Aberdeenshire Cup competition at Pittodrie, and Aberdeen "A" triumphed by 6-0.
Although they had often threatened so, It took Aberdeen forty minutes to open the scoring, Donald catching on to a rebound from the goalkeeper after McKenzie had shot. Donald obtained a second goal for Aberdeen when the second half was ten minutes old. Subsequently Huntly fell away appreciably, and Merrie (three times) and David brought the total up to six.
Aberdeen were easily the superior team, but the Huntly side contained several really good players. Munro (W.), Sey, and Ewen took the eye among the forwards, and Paul, Shearer, and Munro (J.) were prominent in defence. Best for Aberdeen were Cooper, Falloon, McLeod, Merrie, David, and McKenzie.
