Scottish League (Canada Cup)  Bridge of Weir 7   Dennistoun Eagles 1

"Bridge of Weir completely outclassed Dennistoun Eagles in a one sided league game at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night. Greatly superior speed and skill enabled Bridge of Weir to exert fully three fourths of the attack play and but for over elaborate inter-passing they might easily have had an even greater lead.

Dennistoun worked poorly together and a disappointing display by J Logan in goal emphasised the failings of the rest of the defence. W W Russell made splendid efforts to rally his side while G Braid and J Delaney often showed to advantage individually.

W S McLeod scored twice for Bridge of Weir in the opening period and in a series of raids early in the second period, D Buchanan and W M Muirhead made their way through to score. In a melee in front of Bridge of Weir's goal, Russell scored for Dennistoun but before the end, W G McDonald, Buchanan and M D Brennan added to Bridge of Weir's total."

Bridge of Weir: A Ross; M D Brennan and W G McDonald; W S McLeod, W M Muirhead and D Buchanan.- A F Reid.

Dennistoun Eagles: J Logan; E L Montford and W W Russell; G Braid, J Delaney and H Finnie.- J Newton.

Referee: A S Aitken (SIHA).
