Scottish League (Canada Cup)   Bridge of Weir 1   Dennistoun Eagles 0

"Dennistoun Eagles deserve great credit for their determined resistance against Bridge of Weir in their league encounter at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night. While the latter merited their narrow win some sympathy went to the losers in conceding a goal just on the final whistle.

W G McDonald was early prominent for Bridge of Weir with several clever pieces of stickhandling but following this, S Stevenson and W W Russell were unfortunate not to score for Dennistoun. Several concerted runs by Bridge of Weir followed and J Logan was well tested by W S McLeod and McDonald.

More give and take exchanges followed in the second period. Two further runs by McDonald looked promising for Bridge of Weir but in turn Stevenson was crowded out with difficulty and the same player spoiled similar good openings by holding the puck too long. Logan again did well to save shots from W M Muirhead and McDonald.

Exchanges were fought out at very fast pace in the final session. Dennistoun were kept on the defensive for the most part and were hard put to keep their opponents at bay. M D Brennan and McDonald both had likely tries before the latter flicked the puck into the net in the last minute."

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

Dennistoun Eagles: J Logan; J H Borland and L Maxton; A Gray, S Stevenson and W W Russell.- H Finnie, J Somerville, L Holland and W R Inglis.

Referee: D McGill (SIHA).
