Equaliser and Reply.There were many exciting passages in the second half. Aberdeen opened in promising fashion and kept the visitors defending for about ten minutes, but they lost several favourable opportunities to shoot, although Newton twice cleared finely from Rankine. A burst by the amateurs' right resulted in the equaliser, Templeton shooting a brilliant goal from fully twenty yards range. After that Queen's Park showed great improvement in all departments, their backs, who had frequently been shaky before, steadying up to play a brilliant game. Miller twice lost shooting opportunities by slowness in gathering the ball, but he had one fine effort from the right, which Newton was fortunate to block with his chest. Connon hit the bottom of the upright, and at the other end Forsyth brought off a fine clearance when Fyfe appeared to have the Aberdeen goal at his mercy. With eight minutes left for play, Aberdeen took the lead. Miller accepting a judicious pass from Rankine literally crash the ball past Newton. The game had a fighting finish, both goals being in danger in the closing minutes.
Weak Finishers.On the whole, Aberdeen deserved their victory, but the frequency with which they let scoring chances slip nearly led to their undoing. The defence at times was none too sound, the outstanding players in this department being Wright and Milne. Of the forwards. Middleton. and Connon were best, Miller marring his display by the number of chances he let slip. Robertson did not do badly at outside left. On the Queen's Park side, Sneddon and Davis defended well after a rather indifferent beginning, Davis especially kicking strongly and Gillespie was the best of the middle division. Of the forwards, the Scott- Templeton wing was the best on the field, the extreme winger showing great speed besides being tricky and centring accurately. Fyfe led the line well, but was not too well supported, and the left wing did not reveal its best form.
