Kick Off:    Vigrow, McIntosh, Price, Vigrow       Grant, Wilson  
Attendance: 0
Orion Drop Two Points.
With a team, slightly under strength Orion journeyed to Lochee. The Stripes early visited Roberts, and Hogg had a try, but without success. From a corner, Vigrow managed to send the ball past, McBean. For some time the home team pressed. Orion made tracks for Roberts and Grant was successful in equalising. Wilson gave Orion the lead: but before half time McIntosh placed the teams level again. The game had not long restarted when Lochee scored, Price being responsible. Orion had any amount of the game, but wild shooting spoiled many a good chance. Vigrow increased his team's total, and as Orion could not pierce the home defence, Lochee won by 4-2.

Short Kicks.

Orion's new half did not turn out a star at Dundee. It's a pity.
