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

"Bridge of Weir's decisive league victory over the champions Kelvingrove at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night marked a big switch over in relative form as compared with last season.

Bridge of Weir, who enjoyed a marked superiority in teamwork, individual thrust and ability to take chances, excelled in the opening period when their long accurate passing moves made frequent inroads on the Kelvingrove defence.

A clever move by M D Brennan led to a particularly well taken goal from W S McLeod whose shooting was ever a menace. Kelvingrove had a number of good runs but were decidedly disjointed in their efforts.

Play fell away in quality during the second period and Kelvingrove claimed the greater share of the exchanges. C McMillan, W S Montford and A Fullerton were all dangerous on occasions.

W G McDonald, Brennan and McLeod were dangerous in turn near the end and a clever solo dash by Brennan created an opening for McLeod who snapped a second goal from short range."

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

Kelvingrove: D Cross; A S Dick and A Fullerton; W S Montford, C McMillan and A J Tingley.- J Beveridge and A Gray.

Referee: A S Aitken (SIHA).
