Aberdeen 'A' Victorious At Dundee

Aberdeen "A" were somewhat lucky to overcome Dundee "A" in their Second Eleven Cup tie at Dens Park yesterday. The game opened quietly, and midfield play took place during the greater part of the first half. Each side indulged in spasmodic raiding, the Dons being the more prominent in this habit. In the early minutes, a Cosgrove missed a great chance under the Dundee bar, but he lofted the ball well over. A little later, Marsh made a spectacular save, lying on the ground with three Aberdeen players round him. Cook got away on the Dundee left, and put over a fine ball, which Ritchie just cleared from Knox's foot. Dundee continued to press, and Gibson had a great header which Cunningham just held under the bar. Bowie had two breakaways, but his shooting, like that of every other forward on view, was woefully weak. Play was even until the interval, with Aberdeen having a very slight upper hand. Their swinging methods spreadeagled the Dundee defence fairly often, but bad shooting kept them out. The second half saw a much brighter display from both sides. After about ten minutes, the visitors went ahead through Duncan, who scored a simple goal from a pass by Bowie. Dundee came away in great style after this, and pressed continuously until the close of play. Gibson just missed with a header, with Cunningham out of his goal, whilst Jackson almost scored against has own side, Cunningham punching his clearance out from under bar. The whistle went with the home lot still attacking, but the Dons' defence unbeaten. Aberdeen, were best served by their defence, Dick, Main, and Grant, while the home tars were Gerrard, Wilson, and Cook.
