Scottish League (Canada Cup)  Bridge of Weir 2   Achtungs 0

"Bridge of Weir registered their second win in the Scottish Ice Hockey League last night at Crossmyloof Ice Rink, Glasgow when they won by two goals to nil over Achtungs.

Bridge of Weir's side included a new member in G D Rowley from Montreal who was making his first appearance for a Scottish club and he was responsible for the opening goal of the match. Play was fairly even in the first period with Bridge of Weir forcing the pace and once or twice they came near to scoring.

The second period saw end to end play but the better combination of the Bridge of Weir side proved more effective. A fine piece of passing between W M Muirhead and Rowley culminated in the latter sending in a shot which beat the goaltender.

The last period was much faster than the other two and provided more interest. Achtungs showed up much better but could make little of their opponents backs. Their fault lay in lack of finishing power. Rowley and the two Muirheads were playing very confidently and near the end, W M Muirhead burst through to send in a hard drive which H C Higginbotham had no chance to save."

Bridge of Weir: A N McPhie; J K Woodrow and G D Rowley; I S McLeod, W M Muirhead and R E Muirhead.- R J G McDonald and H J Telfer.

Achtungs: H C Higginbotham; W R Higginbotham and H W Reid; A Rintoul, G Reid and N C McKenzie.- D M Somerville and C Gourley.

Referee: D B A Carty (SIHA).
