Football: Brechin YM 2, Forfar Renton 2.
With four minutes gone Renton were in real trouble, their goalkeeper was taken off with a chest injury. The YM took advantage with a goal by Reid from a Petrie pass. By this time the YM were thoroughly in command and scored again through Reid. With only 10 minutes to go, YM went to pieces and allowed Renton to score twice.

Hockey: Brechin 0, Ruthrieston 0; Condor 0, Brechin 0.
It might be said that after a series of two defeats, two draws would be an improvement , but the truth is, results should have been much better. On both occasions, the defence played very well and the trouble lay in the forward line for a change.
