McSevich's Penalty Save

Although beaten by two goals to nothing, the Hibernians A side against Aberdeen A made quite a good first Appearance. Their defence successfully held up the more fancied men from the North for seventy minutes, and prior to Cheyne notching the first goal for the "Dons" Hutchison had failed to make good from a penalty granted the home side. Love got another goal in the closing minutes, during which, in fact, was the only real period of the game in which the visitors were slightly superior to the players of the home side. A good impression was created by Gourlay, playing at outside right for the Hibernians, and it was he who gave McSevick, the Aberdeen goalkeeper, most anxiety. Fleming and Hutchison were best of the others on the Hibernian side. Only McSevick on the other side was more prominent than his colleagues.

Aberdeen Reserves recorded their second successive victory in the Scottish Alliance competition, beating Hibernian '"A" at Easter Road by 2 goals to 0. There was no scoring during a well-contested first half, in which both goals had narrow escapes, and McSevich distinguished himself with clever saving for Aberdeen. Early in the second half the Aberdeen goalkeeper brilliantly saved a penalty kick, and paved the way for the victory that ultimately fell to his team. Twenty minutes from the close Cheyne gave Aberdeen the lead, and after this the exchanges favoured the visitors. A second goal followed when Love netted after a shot by Cheyne had found the woodwork. Aberdeen deserved to win, but it was only in the later stages they were superior.
