Watson sent the ball arolling for Culter, and the Stripes getting on the leather forced their way towards their opponents' goal. Culter made a gallant effort to equalise, but failed at goalmouth. The Stripes forced their way up and Low beat Coutts a second time. Still keeping within their opponents? territory the Stripes, by a brilliant piece of play added another goal, and shortly afterwards Mackay and Ross were called upon to defend their charge, Stopani and Leggat broke away, and taking up the pass Dawson lowered the colours of Culter once again. Benzie was responsible for the next point, and at half-time the game stood 6-0. In the second half another goal was added by Orion, and the game resulted: Orion 7, Culter 0.
