Cowdenbeath 'A's Plucky Fight

In a somewhat scrappy Scottish Alliance match at Pittodrie on Saturday afternoon, an experimental Aberdeen "A" team gained a narrow victory over Cowdenbeath "A," the final score being 2-1 in the homesters' favour. Cowdenbeath gave a plucky display, if, at times, some of their team were inclined to be over-robust in their methods, and never lay down, even although they fought out the second half and the latter part of the first with only ten men.
R. Bruce, who resumed after an absence through injury, notched the first goal for Aberdeen with a brilliant drive in the opening minutes, but Stevenson in the visiting goal defied all further efforts until in the second half, when McDermid hooked in a free kick lobbed into the goalmouth by McHale. To Lindsay, the Fifers' best forward, went the well-deserved credit of Cowdenbeath's solitary point. A well-taken goal it was, as the left winger beat two opponents, and ran in to beat McSevich alI ends up. Aberdeen's defence was the better of the two, but their forwards crowded together too much through the failure of McDermid to open up the game. The crowd numbered only about 1500.
