Scottish League (Canada Cup) Bridge of Weir 5   Glasgow University 1

"Bridge of Weir were easy winners in this ice hockey league game in Glasgow last night although in the first period they were subjected to heavy pressure and actually lost the first goal, J O McCabe surprising the Weir defence by whipping in a fast low shot which deceived A Ross.

The league leaders however quickly replied and after W G McDonald and M D Brennan had shots turned aside the former skated right through and planted the puck in the net for the equaliser.

In the second period, goals came easily to Bridge of Weir, McDonald flashed in and scored a second from close range following which Brennan took a pass from W S McLeod and added a third. A few minutes later in a goalmouth scramble, A F Reid put the puck in the net for the fourth time.

In the third period, Reid although he appeared to take an offside pass, slipped through and notched the fifth goal for the County team."
