Match Report


Newspaper extract from The Evening Telegraph.

Dundee have won the Eastern League championship of 1917-18 by defeating Cowdenbeath at Central Park last night again by the only goal of the match.

Cowdenbeath were a bit unlucky to lose in a game in which the play was nearly all the time in their favour, and failure to push home the advantage was the cause of their defeat.

Even although they had a penalty kick, yet at the other end McKinlay flung the ball against one of his own backs, and it rolled past him over the goal line.

They simply rained shots at Watson, not one would go through.

Watson played a grand game in Dundee goal. He saved some good shots, especially one from Terris. Dundee backs are hefty kickers, and, like the half backs, are hustlers when it comes to tackling.

Their forward line was not good as Cowdenbeaths, the difference being the grand play of Cowdenbeath left wing, Ritchie and Tait.

Henderson was ever on the alert at outside right, but his play struck one as if he would be more useful at centre, Connelly did well at inside right. Willie Birrell put in some good work at centre half.

The back line missed Cumming, but they defended well, with the result that McKinlay had an easy time compared to the busy afternoon of Watson. The gate amounted to $150.
