Orion 8 - 2 Brechin
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
Like the other two Aberdeen clubs, Orion had a substantial victory, their victims being the Brechin Club. The result, however, was not so unexpected in their case. The teams were represented by the following players: Brechin: Owler ; Cobb, Johnstone; J. Will, D. Will, Gray; Henderson, Buchan, Ferrier, Donaldson, Bowman. Orion: Edward; Mackay, Ross; Wright, Low, Dawson; Benzie, Gloag, Thom, Leggatt, Stopani.
There was a fair gathering of spectators at Cattofield. Orion secured their first goal fifteen minutes after the start, while the second was the result of a blunder on the part of the strangers' backs. Brechin thereafter secured a point, but before half-time the home players had put two more to their credit. The second half was a repetition of the first, both in regard to the distribution of play and the number of goals scored. Result: Orion, 8; Brechin, 2.
