A TransformationThere was a transformation of form in the second half. The period was but minutes old when, after a tricky move, Hutton gave the home goalkeeper no chance with a swift ball. The success roused Aberdeen to greater effort, and for a period, and they were as much superior to Motherwell as they had been behind them in the opening half of the game. Playing with a vigour and precision that would not be denied, the Pittodrie players repeatedly had the opposition in a tangle, and it was no more than their due when Archibald secured the equalising goal with a fine shot twenty minutes from the end. From then until the close play was in the nature of a duel between the Aberdeen attack and the home defence, and the Motherwell goal ran many narrow escapes. Motherwell had one or two dangerous rushes, but these only brought out the fine qualities of the Aberdeen defence. The result was a tribute to the grit and determination of the Pittodrie players, especially in view of the run of play in the first half, when it seemed that Motherwell would win in overwhelming style. The outstanding players in a remarkable game were Anderson, Hannah, Brewster, McLaughlin, Archibald, Connon, and Hutton for Aberdeen, and Rundell, McGregor, Jackson, Brown, Ferguson, Ferrier and Rankine of Motherwell.
