Walk-over At Pittodrie

Even with a makeshift forward line Aberdeen "A" had no difficulty in annexing two more Scottish Alliance points at the expense of Morton "A" at Pittodrie on Saturday before a crowd of about 5000. Indeed, they won "looking round" by seven goals to nil, and were not stretched at any period of the game.
Against wind, sun, and an occasional shower of rain in the first half they had a fairly stiff time of it for a start, but backs and half-backs soon took a hold of the game, and their two goal lead at the interval was only a slight reflection of their superiority. They were usually on the attack, and it was no surprise when Cosgrove scored in off a nice cross by "Duff" Bruce, who was figuring in the strange role of outside left, and doing well it, too. The Aberdeen inside right got another goal before the interval after a nice bout of passing with McFarlane, which deceived a visiting defence that was very unsteady under pressure.
In the second half, what with the help of the elements and their own superiority, Aberdeen practically hemmed their opponents in their own territory. McFarlane got the third goal with a lightning drive, McLeod the fourth off a free kick, Cosgrove the fifth and his "hat trick" after beating two opponents, Black the sixth with a rocket from well out, and McFarlane the seventh and last after rounding the two backs. It was a sad day for the Morton defence, who were very easily beaten, and also for the forwards who, with the exception of Frizzel, could make little of the strong home half line and backs. Cosgrove was the outstanding forward on the field, with Frizzel a very good second.
