Aberdeen had their biggest success of the season by defeating Hearts by 2 goals to 1 at Tynecastle. Despite the wintry weather there was an attendance of between 6000 and 7000 spectators.
Aberdeen invaded on the resumption, and Boyd had to throw out. Hamilton forced a corner for Hearts, but the Aberdeen defence was sound, and the ball was returned to midfield. Currie was presented with a likely chance to equalise, but failed. The game continued on keen and fast lines, and both goals were visited in turn. Hamilton made an attempt to score, but Anderson saved, with Currie in close attention upon him. Colman and Hume were in excellent form, and beat off all attacks by the Hearts' eager forwards. Archibald was getting away for the Hearts' goal, when Briggs intervened. Wattie did well in an individual effort. At the other end, Boyd saved twice from Grant. Hearts were pressing when time was called.

From the beginning Aberdeen attacked, but did not remain long in Hearts' territory. Sinclair got possession, and made progress, a corner resulting. Grant, Aberdeen's outside right, got away, but was successfully tackled by Mercer. After Chatwin had shot over the bar, Hearts forwards pressed, and forced a couple of corners, which brought no advantage. Aberdeen invaded in turn, and Cail scored with a nice, long shot. Hearts applied the pressure, and Anderson was called upon. Sinclair got the ball after the goalkeeper had kicked out. A scrimmage followed, and Graham succeeded in equalising. Another advance by Hearts was repelled by Colman and Hume. Aberdeen's front line again got through the Hearts' defence, and Archibald scored with a shot from long range.
