Orion 2 - 1 Montrose
Kick Off:    Low, Willox (pen)       ?  
Attendance: 0
Venue: Cattofield, Aberdeen
At Cattofield, Aberdeen, on Saturday afternoon before a small crowd of spectators. Teams:- Orion; Ritchie; Willocks, Brebner; Currie, Campbell, Esplin; Prophet, Fraser, Low, Shiach, Thomson. Montrose: Mitchell; Leonard, Allan; Steele, Bowman, Watt; Murray, Valentine, Inglis, Davidson, Lamb.

Orion won the toss, and played down the incline. The gale blowing froom the north shattered all attempts at scientific play, and oftener than not the ball went out of play. Eventually Montrose attacked. Ritchie, however, saved at the expense of a corner, which was fruitless. Orion made a determined attack, and Low scored from a pass by Shiach. Montrose followed up the kick-off with much determination, and rushed Ritchie and the ball into the net at the same time, leaving the game equal. Mitchell was on the alert and saved a very likely shot. Bowman fouled Shiach withn the line, and a penalty was given against Montrose, and Willox easily scored. Shiach had now a clear field between him and the goal, but Allan, overtaking him, smartly cleared.

Montrose pressed in the second half but failed to score. The gale caused the best efforts of both teams to be uninteresting. No further scoring took place, and the game ended - Orion 2, Montrose 1.
