Kilmarnock 7 - 0 Aberdeen

HT Score: Kilmarnock 4 - 0 Aberdeen

Div 1 (Old)
Kilmarnock scorers: Fulton, Armstrong, Goldie, Culley, Smith, McPhail (2) Culley, Armstrong, McPhail

27/01/1917 | KO:

Kilmarnock delighted the 2000 spectators at Rugby Park by running up a total of seven goals without response from Aberdeen. The game calls for little comment, for Aberdeen were outplayed from the start. Indeed, Kilmarnock's success might easily have been greater. Their goal scorers were Fulton, Armstrong, Goldie, Culley, Smith, and McPhail (2).

Aberdeen, although never doing much scoring themselves, invariably present an effective defense, and the 7-0 beating at Kilmarnock was somewhat of a staggerer. The half-back and forward lines had a node look about them. Cail was at centre half, and with the backs and goalkeeper put in a good afternoon's work. The forwards, however, were quite unable to make anything of the Kilmarnock halves, and the result was that the Aberdeen defence was simply worked to death. The home forwards adapted themselves better to the slippery pitch. To begin with, Aberdeen shaped promisingly, Davidson and Willie Wylie having good tries, but Kilmarnock gradually wore them down, and were leading 4-0 at the interval. Three others were added in the second period. McPhail had two goals, and Culley, Fulton, Armstrong, Goldie, and Smith one apiece. Aberdeen were best served by Anderson, terry, Calder, Cail, Davidson, Cruikshank, and Wylie.
