Orion 3 - 1 Black Diamond
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Central Park, Aberdeen
A good turnout of spectators appeared at Central Park to witness the tussle between Orion and Black Diamonds, and, the very cold weather notwithstanding, all seemed delighted with the play. The Blacks looked very much like winning at the start, and the pity is that they fell away so disastrously in the second period. As it was, however, the Blacks certainly gave the Orion as much as they got, and although they cannot lay claim to a victory, they have the satisfaction of knowing that they made a very commendable appearance. The Orion men are to be congratulated on the result.
