Visitors Well Beaten.Aberdeen were handicapped resuming by the temporary absence of Hutton and by an injury to Grosert, but they early found their feet, and before their onslaughts the visitors' defence tottered and fell. O'Hagan stopped a bard shot from Thomson, and this heralded a succession of exciting incidents in front the Paisley goal. Aberdeen attacked persistently, and O'Hagan's goal experienced wonderful immunity from downfall. Try as they might, the visitors' defence could not get the ball away, and at one stage a succession of five flag kicks fell to Aberdeen. On one occasion Rankine, from inside the area, spooned the ball against the crossbar. A well-deserved goal, however, fell to Aberdeen at the end of nine minutes. Flanaghan got over a high ball, which O'Hagan almost missed. The keeper left his goal to recover, but was harassed by Connon, and while in the act of bouncing the ball preparatory to clearing, lost possession, and Rankine crashed the ball to the back an empty goal. The Aberdeen attack continued to bewilder the visitors' defence, and after clever following up Connon got over a square, which Rankine missed, but Flanaghan, lying handy, drove the ball with terrific force to the back of the net. For a time the Aberdeen attack was rampant, and after brilliant work by the wingers the Paisley goal had many narrow escapes. The visitors came again, and Hutton's weakness, consequent upon his injury, allowed their left wing to get up, and Love beat Anderson in simple fashion. Shortly after this Hutton retired for the remainder of the game, and Aberdeen were slightly disorganised in consequence, Connon and Thomson falling back to assist the defence. Several dangerous tries came to Anderson, but the keeper dealt confidently with all that came his way. In the closing stages the exchanges were fairly even, but Aberdeen always held the whip hand, and in the end were left comfortable and deserving winners. Attendance 14,000.
