Aberdeen, who have fared so indifferently at home in the Scottish League this season had a brilliant rally at Shawfield Park, Glasgow, on Saturday, when they defeated Clyde by the only goal of the match. There were 8000 spectators. Clyde had out an experimental team, several of the leading forwards being dropped on account of recent adverse results, and Aberdeen had one notable change, Greig taking the place of king in goal. Taking the game all over, Aberdeen were full value for their win, even a loving that they were a trifle lucky not to be in arrears at half-time. The second half's play helped to redeem the indifferent show given by both teams in the first period. Either side found its form for quite a long time, although in the first half Clyde were always the more dangerous, and but for the solid play of Colman, Hannah and Greig, they must have scored. As it was, several corners fell to their lot, and on two occasions Hannah and Colman nearly sent through their own goal. Aberdeen only occasionally threatened, yet grant had only twice to handle - a long shot by Wilson and a header by Main. The defensive duel continued until the interval, when there was no scoring.
The restart was sensational. Soye broke off and centered finely, and main caught up the ball, and grant partially cleared, but Lennie, lying handy, banged the ball through. The goal change the whole aspect of the game, and from that time play was quite strenuous and interesting. On several occasions Aberdeen came near to increasing their lead, while Clyde, if they were slack in their shooting, also came near to scoring. Once Wilson blocked a shot from Walker which must have gone home. Hannah and Colman put up a very fine defence, their work, indeed, being the feature of the game. Aberdeen, with their lead, played up confidently, and grand saved twice when it seemed the goals must have followed. Near the close Travers missed a rare opportunity of finding the net.
