Orion 2 - 2 Alliance

HT Score: Orion 2 - 0 Alliance

Alliance scorers: G. Anderson 2

13/02/1886 | KO:

These clubs played a game on the Links on Saturday afternoon. Orion kicked off with the wind, and during the first half of the game succeeded in scoring two goals. When sides were changed, the Alliance, aided by a strong wind, pressed their opponents very heavily, but did not manage to score until the end of the game, when G. Anderson, captain of the Rovers (association), who rendered them valuable assistance by a fine display of dribbling, scored two goals. The match thus ended in a draw.
