THIRD TIE SCORE
BETHLEHEM, 1; WEST HUDSON, 1
Big Crowd Witness Struggle at Harrison, N. J. - Next Game On Neutral Ground.

Bethlehems champion team and West Hudson for the third time in three weeks battled to a tie before a crowd of 2000 at Harrison, N. J., both teams playing great ball and the determination to win was clearly shown by both teams. Bethlehems team, with a party of 150 rooters, left South Bethlehem on a special train of three coaches over the Lehigh Valley Rail Road at 10:30 a.m. All the rooters wore the Bethlehem colors, Blue and White, and on their arrival in Newark special trolley cars were in waiting to convey them to the grounds. The game started promptly at 2:30 p.m. Bethlehems after 25 minutes of play scored the first goal and the fans went wild for two or three minutes. Just before half-time, Carter, the West Hudson center forward, got through and evened up the score with a shot that Scaife just managed to touch, but could not save. In the first 15 minutes of extra time ordered by the referee the Bethlehems team worked the ball down the field beautifully and Lance passing to this point the crowd gave vent to its feeling, cheering and shouting, but this suddenly stopped when the referee refused to allow the goal, claiming that Fleming was offsides. After this the teams played until it became too dark and the referee stopped the game with the score 1-1. The game will have to be replayed on neutral grounds to be chosen by the American Football Association official between now and Feb. 1. The line-up:
