Elgin City Beaten At Pittodrie

At Pittodrie Park last night, before 1500 spectators. Aberdeen "A" defeated Elgin City by eight goals to two in an Aberdeen and District League game. Consternation was caused in the first few minutes by Lamb's opening the scoring for the visitors. Aberdeen, however, were soon on level terms, Carroll being the marksman. Following this the play was even, with Aberdeen, if anything, slightly superior. A combined rush by the home attack resulted in Jackson putting Aberdeen in the lead with a first-time effort. Both goals were visited in turn, and I. Phimister succeeded in levelling the scores just before half-time. In the second half Elgin City appeal to tire, and it was no surprise when Yule and Carroll added two more for Aberdeen. McFarlane, the ex-Shawfield Juniors centre forward, who had bbeen playing a good game at inside-right, secured a fifth. The Aberdeen forwards combined better this half, and hemmed the visitors in their own territory. Midway through the second period Carroll headed in, and before the finish Jackson and Yule added two more goals, bringing their side's total to eight. Best for Aberdeen were Ritchie, McHale, McFarlane, Carroll, and Yule. For the visitors Loban in goal played well. The best of the others were Longbottom, I. Phimister, Esslemont, and lamb.
