Scottish League (Canada Cup)  Bridge of Weir 2   Dennistoun Eagles 0

"Bridge of Weir certainly merited their victory at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night although not until the closing minutes did they succeed in piercing the Dennistoun Eagles defence.

The winners had fully two thirds of the attack throughout but this only made their failure near goal all the more palpable. The brothers McLeod, M D Brennan, W G McDonald and W M Muirhead were prominent in turn either individually or in various clever combined moves but one and all finished poorly on several occasions with an empty goal in front.

J Logan displayed remarkably fine form which warded off many dangerous shots and had much to do with his opponents lack of success. The entire Dennistoun defence deserve credit but their attack was limited by spasmodic raids chiefly by W W Russell and S Stevenson.

Near the end, W S McLeod gave Bridge of Weir a long overdue lead which was added to by W M Muirhead in the final minute of the game."

Bridge of Weir: A Ross; M D Brennan and W G McDonald; W S McLeod, I S McLeod and W M Muirhead.- J K Woodrow and D Buchanan.

Dennistoun Eagles: J Logan; J H Borland and W R Inglis; A Gray, S Stevenson and W W Russell.- L Holland, L Maxton, C Smith and G Braid.

Referee: R O MacDonald (Bears).
