Football: Although handicapped by injury, Matrix assured themselves of a place in the next round of the Scottish Junior Cup by trouncing Broughty Athletic 6-0 at Dundee on Saturday. On this form Matrix could well prove formidable opponents to any of the more fancied Midland teams.

Hockey: Brechin 0, Queen’s College 1.
The amazing feature of this match was the score, with Queen’s applying all the pressure, Brechin were so busy defending the forward line was nonexistent. For all that, the visitors’ finishing was poor. Allison in the Brechin goal was terrific had some brilliant saves. The goal, when it came after 20 minutes, was almost stopped by the ‘keeper.
