Scottish League (Canada Cup)   Bridge of Weir 3   Juniors 0

"Bridge of Weir with a game more played now share the league leadership with Kelvingrove as a result of their win over Juniors at the Scottish Ice Rink, Crossmyloof, Glasgow last night. Both sides were considerably under strength and Bridge of Weir lost their only substitute, A F Reid, after a collision with J Collins who was also off the ice for a time.

Persistent attacking gave Bridge of Weir much the better of the exchanges. Despite the margin against them, Juniors defence checked stoutly throughout but were poorly covered by their front line who were also much too haphazard in attack to break through the stonewall defence of their opponents.

The Bridge of Weir line all had shots in turn before W G McDonald scored from a centre pass from I S McLeod. Juniors were seldom at such close quarters but D Edwards and W Steele both made likely efforts.

Bridge of Weir added to their total in the second period, I S McLeod and McDonald scoring a goal apiece.

There was no further scoring in the final session despite determined efforts by both sides."

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

Juniors: W S Turnbull; E L Montford and J Collins; W Steele, D Edwards and G Henderson.- A G Bogie, J Milne, J Miller and N Andrews.

Referee: R H Gardiner (Glasgow University).
