Storm Mars Benefit Game

WILLIE MILLS was unlucky in his benefit match at Huntly last night.
A mixture of rain and snow came on just before the start and increased in intensity, until it was more like a test of endurance than a game of football, and the referee wisely cut fifteen minutes off each half.

Glen scored for Aberdeen in the sixth minute and Roy counted nine minutes later.
Huntly had a number of likely raids, but fell further behind just before the interval, Glen again being the marksman.
Early in the second half Gauld got Aberdeen's fourth goal, and Muir was on his knees when he headed number five.
Willie Mills scored the best goal of the match. With a twenty-yard volley he gave Curran no chance.
Roy ended the scoring near the close.
