Fright For Aberdeen
Fraserburgh went under to Aberdeen by the odd goal in five. Aberdeen had practically all the first team so far booked up on the field, while the visitors were represented by the strongest possible eleven. Aberdeen scored early through Brown, while Wood put on the other two. The Buchan team showed spirited determination to enter the final round, but their efforts were of practically no use. Although the game took a sensational turn when Fraserburgh scored twice in a few minutes - from Taylor and Paterson - the locals could never be said to have been in danger of defeat.
