Scottish League (Canada Cup) Bridge of Weir 7 Mohawks 2

"The league match last night between Bridge of Weir and Mohawks at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow resolved itself into a form of exhibition game.

Bridge of Weir, without several of their regular players, iced A S Aitken (SIHA), W S Turnbull (Juniors), Alex Fullerton and W S Montford (Kelvingrove) and J Kelly (Juniors). Mohawks included P Stevenson (Juniors). Although often scrappy due to lack of teamwork, there was plenty of clever play.

Speedy end to end raiding, fine individual stick work and keen checking kept the exchanges brisk for the greater part but Bridge of Weir ultimately gained the upper hand to such an extent that goal scoring became rather easy.

Aitken, whose splendid stick work and sense of position made many openings for Bridge of Weir, scored the only goal of the opening period.

On resuming, Bridge of Weir increased their lead through goals by Montford twice, Kelly and R E Muirhead. Cool saving by Turnbull defied a number of likely shots by Mohawks.

Early in the final period, J Kenny scored for Mohawks but Aitken then outwitted several opponents to add a sixth goal for Bridge of Weir. Montford scored another goal and just before the end, Stevenson had a goal for Mohawks."

Bridge of Weir: W S Turnbull; A S Aitken and A Fullerton; W S McLeod, W M Muirhead and R E Muirhead.- W S Montford, J Kelly and A F Reid.

Mohawks: R Anderson; R O MacDonald and G Porter; W Fullerton, J Fullerton and J Kenny.- C Russell, J R Gilmour and P Stevenson.

Referee: G Ayres (Mohawks).
