Reserve Marksman Rampant

Aberdeen "A's" sharp-shooters were in rampant form against Kilmarnock "A" in their Scottish Alliance match at Pittodrie Park, Aberdeen, on Saturday. They scored 9 goals to their opponents 1. Bowie touched his best form since coming to Aberdeen, and had four of the goals, three of them scored in as many minutes. Right from the start he hit his game, and had some capital shots for goal. He was also leading his line well, and giving his inside men many opportunities. One of his goals was probably the most amusing seen at Pittodrie for many a day. He received the ball near the penalty box, and there was a shout that he was offside. The game stopped, Bowie himself being under the impression that he was out of position. He then cantered slowly forward, however, and playfully tapped the ball into the net, while the visiting goalkeeper stood looking on ironically clapping his hands. His was cut short, however, when the referee awarded a goal, pointing out that had not blown his whistle and that Bowie was onsides. It was an incident over which the crowd laughed heartily, although the award of a goal came as a surprise even to the Aberdeen players. Killie made a plucky fight facing the sun in the first half, and midway through the score stood at -0 for the homesters. They collapsed in the second half, however, and Aberdeen did practically as they pleased. A minute from time, it was thought that all the thrills were over, and that Aberdeen "A" were to win 8-0, but Brown scored for Killie. Scarcely had the ball been centred, however, than Forbes added to the home team's total. The Aberdeen marksmen were: Bowie (4.), Forbes (2), Grant, Cosgrove, and Main.
