These teams met at Cattofield for the first time this season. In consequence of the soft condition of the ground the play was somewhat poor. In the first period the Orion registered three goals through McFarlane, McLennan, and Thom, No scoring took place in the second half, and the match closed in favour of the Orion by three goals to nil. Orion were strong both at forward and back, but the Aberdeen lacked combination.
