There was a heavy wind blowing, and, winning the toss, Aberdeen elected to take advantage of it. In the circumstances it was not surprising that the visitors did nearly all the pressing. It was a question of Aberdeen shooting for all they were worth at goal and Rangers keeping up a strong defence. Robertson made a clever attempt to open the scoring, the wind carrying the ball over the bar. Cunningham just missed scoring for the Rangers, who could not settle down to their game. Well supplied by both wings, Robertson made many clever attempts to draw first blood, but the home defence could not be penetrated. After a further attempt by brown, Aberdeen got away again and there were some lively incidents in front of the Rangers' goal. While playing well on the whole, Aberdeen could not get the ball into the net, which would only have been a fitting reward for their clever work. Houston secured a clever goal for the Rangers.

The weather was so bad that it was agreed to resume without retiring. Aberdeen had had clearly the best of the first half, an shoot on play have been leading by a couple of goals. Nothing daunted, Aberdeen restarted strongly, and Robertson was prominent in an attack upon the Rangers' goal. Play was pretty much of a struggling character, with Aberdeen always holding their own. Some active work on the part of the Rangers' forwards placed the Aberdeen goal in jeopardy, but Hannah and Harper were not to be beaten. A vigorous attack on the Rangers' goal followed, but with no more successful result. Rangers were now having more of the play, but like their opponents the field at goal. Aberdeen gave as good as they got, and in the second half each side scored.
