Orion 5 - 1 Elginshire
Kick Off:  3:15 PM   Benzie, Stopani, ?, ?, ?       ?  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
Another of the series of very enjoyable games which have taken place between these clubs was played at Cattofield before a fair attendance. Mr Mundie was referee. The strangers, who kicked off, made an excellent start, and for the first few minutes the Orion back division had as much work as it could well manage. The effort, however, was too good to be sustained, and the superior combination of the home forward line soon began to have its effect. When at last they did get within shooting range, they scored twice in quick succession through Benzie and Stopani. Orion again scored shortly before half-time. In the second period also, they had the best of matters, and added two more goals. Scores: Orion 5, Elgin association 1.
