Young Dons Fail At Goalmouth


Aberdeen "A" would have won this Alliance game at Dumfries had they taken the chances offered them in the first half.
For three-quarters of the game they were much the smarter side, their forward line working beautifully together in the outfield, but near goal they showed weakness on many occasions. They were up against a goalkeeper who gave nothing away; in fact, Mair played one of his best games since joining the Palmerston club. Queen of the South were a feckless lot until the last twenty minutes when staged a great revival and scored no fewer than three times.


Aberdeen were particularly well served by Taylor. Along with Warnock this wing was always dangerous, and it was in this quarter that Mair had most trouble. Scott, too, was good, and had the better of the opposing centre-half, but he missed opportunities at close quarters.
Erskine was the best of the trio, and Newton impressed by some clever clearances when hard pressed.
Queen's had a trialist in Taylor, who was easily their best forward. Alexander took the honours at half-back, and Culbert and Thom were good at back, but it was to Mair that Queen's owed their victory.
Aberdeen were the first to score, though the goal did not come until twenty-five minutes had done. Scott was the scorer, but it was the left wing that made the opening. Wyllie should have equalised but the ball struck the bar and was cleared by Kelly.


The equaliser did not come until twenty minutes of the second had gone. Wyllie scoring, and this was followed in quick succession by two more from Harkness and Reid. With two minutes to play Taylor netted for Aberdeen.
