The Run of Play.Aberdeen started in promising style, and after good combination Yorston three times almost succeeded in going through. A clever movement by the Celtic front line looked dangerous, but Yuill reached Gray's shot. Play once more travelled to the other end where Yorston had the home defence in a tangle, but Thomson was not troubled. The Celtic extreme wingers adopted the long swinging game and play was soon hovering round the Aberdeen goal. Yuill did well to deal with efforts by Connelly and McGrory. Aberdeen retaliated through Love, Yorston, and McDermid, the last named shooting over. Aberdeen set up a determined attack on the home goal, which had a lucky escape. Love, Cheyne, and Yorston all went near counting. Subsequent play favoured the home team, and the Aberdeen defence was kept on the stretch. Yuill fisted away from McGrory, and Livingstone blocked a shot on the goal line, while it was only at the second attempt that Yuill got rid of an effort by Connelly. Aberdeen shook off the pressure, and, with thirty-five minutes gone, opened the scoring. Love, on the right, let go a good drive which Thomson only pushed out; the winger followed up and netted with an unsaveable shot. Celtic rallied, and just on the interval McGrory collected a long pass from Wilson to level the scores.
Determined Celts.Celtic resumed in whirlwind fashion, and Yuill did well to save a shot by Thomson, and a minute later an effort by Gray struck the top of the crossbar. Smith retaliated on the Aberdeen left, and Thomson was forced to save twice from the winger. Although the play was confined to midfield for a time, Celtic had the better of the exchanges, and ultimately took the lead through Connelly. Aberdeen attacked vigorously, and a shot by Cheyne went narrowly over, while Thomson had to run out to clear a cross by Black. The visitors sustained the rally, and a weak clearance by a Celtic defender resulted in Hill scoring a great equaliser from twenty-five yards' range.
