After a scoreless opening period, the Peterhead took the lead after an hour through former Dons striker Scott Michie. With thirteen minutes remaining, comeback man Steven Craig made it 1-1 when he performed an outrageous bicycle kick from a Bagshaw cross. In 79 minutes Bagshaw was involved again when his cross arrived at the deadly John Stewart who made no mistake with a low shot. Young sub Ashley McInnes put the game beyond the home side in the 83rd minute when a corner was only half cleared and the youngster made it 3-1 to Aberdeen.
While the result flattered Aberdeen, this had all the hallmarks of a friendly, which is fair enough considering the bounce match was quickly organised to aid fitness and comeback from injury.
