This tie in the second round of the Dumbartonshire Cup created unusual interest in Dumbarton on Saturday, and St James's Park was invaded by a record crowd.
Everyone anticipated a keen and closely contested game, and in this they were not disappointed. In the early stages of the game the whole lot were all over the Juniors, and at the interval they led by the respectable score of three goals to nil. These were got by Proudfoot, Watson, and Haddow, and on the run of the play the local club were full value for the score.
The home lot continued to be aggressive at the restart, but soon fell away, and began to take things rather cool. This gave the visitors a chance and Hill secured their initial point, D. Anderson following soon after with another. Great excitement now prevailed, and the "Bankies" were getting in some fine work, and Crichton was kept busy. Over anxious for the equaliser they gave away a penalty, and although McTurk made a brilliant effort to save, Kelso converted.
Later on the visitors again scored, R. Anderson doing the needful on this occasion. The Corinthians rallied somewhat, and after considerable pressing Watson again had the ball in the net. Close on time R. Anderson again scored for the visitors. The homesters were kept busy defending to the finish.
