Orion 3 - 4 East Stirling
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
The Orion yesterday had as visitors the East Stirlingshire, whom they engaged before a small attendance. The strangers displayed a good combination, but did not take full advantage of their opportunities to score, while the home team gave but a fair exhibition. During the match a player of each team came violently into collision with one another, and as the result of the dispute which ensued a portion of the crowd broke into the enclosure. Peace was soon restored, however, and the play proceeded, the game ultimately ending 4-3 in favour of the visitors.
