Scottish League (Canada Cup)  Bridge of Weir 6   Glasgow Skating Club 2

"While Glasgow Skating Club improved on recent displays in their league match with Bridge of Weir at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night, their opponents won easily in the end.

An early surprise was created when F McLernan scored for Glasgow Skating Club with a fast shot from the wing. W M Muirhead and I S McLeod had a nice passing run and the former player's shot was only a foot wide. At the other end, McLernan might have scored again for Skating Club but he missed badly. Bridge of Weir replied and A F Reid secured the equalising goal. Bridge of Weir improved thereafter and R E Muirhead scored a second goal for them.

In the second period, R E Muirhead added a third goal for Bridge of Weir and W M Muirhead brought their total to four. The Skating Club secured a second goal, fine combined play by J O McCabe and McLernan receiving reward when the former player netted.

Reid brought the Bridge of Weir total to five after R E Muirhead had provided the opening while W M Muirhead scored a sixth goal some time later with a splendid individual effort."

Bridge of Weir: A Ross; W M Muirhead and J K Woodrow; I S McLeod, A F Reid and R E Muirhead.- R J G McDonald and A E McLeod.

Glasgow Skating Club: L Maxton; B Butters and R H Gardiner; F McLernan, J O McCabe and W G Towers.- H S Finnie and D Buchanan.
