These teams met at Elgin. The weather was boisterous, and there was a comparatively small attendance of spectators. The ground was rather soft. During the first half the Elgin team played well, and when ends were changed they were leading by 2 goals to nil.
Immediately on the start of the second half the Orion scored, and five minutes later equalised. The Elgin team again put on a spurt, and scored other two goals in quick succession. Just before the call of time Elgin had scored another goal, thus winning the match by 5 goals to 2.
