Wattie, who opened the scoring about a quarter of an hour from the start, gave many evidences of his worth to his side, while Graham, who recorded the other goal shortly after the interval, was the best forward on the field. Chief danger in the visitors' side came from their right wingers, Soye and Archibald, the latter especially providing some attractive items, but not one of the Aberdeen forwards showed much enterprise at close range, and it was more owing to the weakened state of the "Maroons" rather than their own effectiveness that they in the game's closing stages monopolised most of the play.
