Reserves Win At Peterhead

By 5 goals to 3, Aberdeen reserves defeated Peterhead at the recreation ground there.

Aberdeen won the toss, and Captain Edwards, president of the Peterhead Club, kicked off. The first half was evenly contested, Peterhead leading till just on the interval, when the visitors equalised, and the sides were equal at half-time - two goals each.

On resuming, the reserves attacked, but the defence of the homesters prevailed. Peterhead were awarded a penalty, from which Peggie scored, Aberdeen equalising immediately after. With fully half-an-hour to go, Bright, outside left for Peterhead, left the field. Thus handicapped, Peterhead kept the visitors' defence on the lookout, but experience ultimately asserted itself, and Aberdeen ran out winners by 5 goals to 3.
