Dundee 3 - 0 Aberdeen

HT Score: Dundee 1 - 0 Aberdeen

Scottish Reserve League
Dundee scorers: Martin, Law, Graydon

01/04/1911 | KO:

Played at Dens Park on Saturday before a fairly large attendance of spectators. Teams:-

Dundee: Crumley; Lawson, McEwan; Philip, Comrie, Mair; Lindley, T. Law, Martin, Graydon, Albert, Law.
Aberdeen: Greig; Macfarlane, Harper; Davidson, Watson, Low; Hay, Edgar, Murray, Downie, Neilson.

The opening exchanges were in favour of Dundee, and Greig was an early called upon to deal with several lucky shots. Aberdeen, however, gradually shook off the pressure, and Murray found the net, but the point was disallowed for offside. The northerners continued the aggressors, and two corners in quick succession gave the Dundee defence some trouble. A period of give and take play followed, but as the interval approached the homesters became more prominent, and opened the scoring through Martin. Dundee looked as if they would increase their lead, but Harper and Macfarlane offered a stubborn defence, and half-time arrived without further scoring.

Aberdeen resumed promisingly, and Crumley was frequently called upon. Play, however, once more viewed round in favour of the Dundonians, and from a well-judged pass by Lindley, Albert Law cleverly beat Greig. In the course of a sustained attack upon the Aberdeen goal Watson was injured, but he pluckily remained on the field. The visitors were now are acting for the most part on the defensive, and just before the finish Graydon increased Dundee's total to three.
