Three Quick Goals.The game was only three minutes old when Aberdeen took the lead. McLean essayed a shot, and the ball rebounded from a defender to Yorston, who netted, from close quarters. Another followed after eight minutes, when Love accepted a pass from McDermid to leave Stevenson helpless, and before Clyde could recover they got another shock. Love cut in to finish with a powerful drive, and the ball struck Smith (M.) and glanced into the net. With a lead of three goals Aberdeen did not slacken off, and they got a fourth goal when, from a flag kick by McLean, the ball was deflected through by a defender. Subsequently Yorston twice hit the crossbar. Clyde made several spirited rallies on the left, but these petered out, and Aberdeen went further ahead. After Stevenson had deflected a great shot by Yorston for a corner, the home centre-forward rushed to kick the ball out of the keeper's hands into the net.
One for Clyde.Another Clyde rally ensued, and following King's corner kick Boyd sent into an empty goal. Just on th« interval McDermid met a return from a defender to put on sixth goal for Aberdeen, who were immensely superior. With such a margin dividing the teams the second period was robbed of much of its interest. Aberdeen obviously slackened off, but even so they held the whip hand, and were not seriously troubled to maintain their advantage. Early on the home team got a seventh goal. McLean turning through a great centre by Love. Clyde's worries were added to when Gibson was injured and had to retire. He resumed later at outside right, but ultimately was forced to go off for good.
A Penalty.Aberdeen took matters easy, but they got another goal when Love converted a penalty kick after McLean had been fouled. It was Aberdeen's record win of the season.
