At the start of the second half Hearts should have got themselves back into the game when number 10 Holt was though on goal but he hit the post instead of finding the net. Minutes later the Dons number 10 O'Sullivan should have scored after great set up work from McManus but he tried to place his shot and instead of finding the corner he hit the keeper. At 2-0 Hearts were still in the game but as the half wore on Aberdeen started to dominate. Petrie and McMahon were very impressive in the middle of the park and started to control proceedings. With the Dons on top Craig Murray was flying forward and he went close on a couple of occasions. He also set up Scott Wright who should have scored but the Dons did make the game safe with just over 20 minutes to go when a Murray corner was expertly met by McManus who headed home. The striker made a run across the area that was just too good for the Hearts defence. Declan was outstanding today and looked really sharp. After that the pace of the game dropped a bit which was understandable but the Dons kept knocking the ball about and with just under ten minutes to go Kalvin Orsi scored his first goal for the club. The 16 year old picked the ball up wide on the left. He stepped inside before curling the ball towards the far corner of the net. Keeper Hamilton could not make a move until the ball had gone past Murray but the full back cleverly dummied the ball and by that time Hamilton did not have time to react. This was a very impressive performance and the young Dons played some very good football at times.
