Stonehaven 1 - 7 Orion
Kick Off:           
Attendance: 0
Venue: Glenury Park, Stonehaven
A match between these teams came off at Urie, Stonehaven. Last year the Stonehaven men inflicted a rather heavy defeat on the Orion, but the latter had their revenge on Saturday. Immediately from the start the Aberdeen team showed much the smarter game, and before half-time had put on 4 goals, the home team failing to score. Change of ends saw the Stonehaven forwards play up better, and their efforts were rewarded with a goal; but before the finish the Aberdeen men put on other three points, winning a hard match by 7 goals to 1. All over, the Orion played a splendid game, Valentine's goal-keeping for Stonehaven was good, and Christie and Rainnie were a sterling pair of backs, but the forwards were a poor lot.

The Stipes' visit to Stonehaven on Saturday was a most successful affair, and no wonder they returned to town jubilant over their victory. Seven goals (or was it eight?) to one was decidedly good business. The Orion well deserve their win. They played with fine dash and judgement, combined well, and took all their opportunities. More power to them.
