Mitchell Trophy        Bridge of Weir 2   Glasgow Skating Club 2

"Glasgow Skating Club and Bridge of Weir met in the Mitchell Trophy tournament at Crossmyloof Ice Rink, Glasgow last night.

In the first period, Bridge of Weir attacked repeatedly but the Skating Club stabilised and after a good run, H R Orr opened the scoring for them.

At the beginning of the second period, Bridge of Weir made a fine attack which culminated in W M Muirhead equalising. Skating Club then broke away from their opponents and took the lead through J O McCabe. Bridge of Weir, not to be outdone, made a determined raid and W M Muirhead levelled the scores once more with a good shot.

The third period was hotly contested both sides striving for the leading goal and both taking a fair share of alternative attacking and defending. W M Muirhead was the outstanding player."

Glasgow Skating Club: J B Wharrie; D Borland and W Ritchie; J O McCabe, F McLernan and H R Orr.- T C Brown.
