The University team took a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute. Harris responded with Ethan Drew and Ferg Wilson combining well but it was the away team that extended their lead in the 13th minute. Harris got quickly back into the game when Albert Rowling scored from their first short corner of the game. Harris pressed for an equaliser and Andrew Kernohan linked up with Pete Black who had his shot saved. Pete then won a short corner which was sent wide of goal. The equaliser came in the 23rd minute when Albert had his shot at goal deflected and Ferg Wilson reacted first to place the ball into the corner of the goal.Harris were causing the university defence problems at this stage and in the 27th minute Albert scored his second from a Gavin Martin assist to put Harris into the lead for the first time. Harris came close to extending their lead when Ferg Wilson broke clear and crossed for Andrew Kernohan who just failed to get on the end of it. Just before half time the good work from Harris in catching up and taking the lead was undone when Glasgow University equalised. There was still time for Harris to go ahead when Albert crossed for Greg Whittet but his shot hit the sidenet.
