The match between Battlefield (Glasgow) and Orion, which was played at Central Park, attracted a large concourse of spectators. Those present had a treat such as is seldom enjoyed in these latitudes. The teams gave a fine exhibition of football. At half-time the scores stood level, and in the second period there was a keen tussle for supremacy. Ultimately the strangers were successful, and the game ended: Battlefield 3, Orion 2.
