Local Players Visit New England Team on Saturday and Win by SCORE OF 2 TO 1

The Philadelphia soccer team leader of the American League defeated the Fall River United at the Fall River, Mass., athletic grounds Saturday afternoon, 2 to 1.

The Quakers scored both goals in the first half with Rice, the crack center forward, doing the honors in both instances. Fall River tallied in the second half when Butler booted the ball into the net for one of the prettiest goals seen on the grounds.

Fall River missed two penalty kicks in the second half, Booth sending the ball over the cross bar and Lindsay shooting it into Highfield's arms. Weir, of the Uniteds, scored for Fall River in the second period, but referee Morse, of New Bedford, would not allow the goal and called a penalty on Philadelphia's fullback for tripping Weir. The referee's decision on several instances met with the disfavor of the spectators.
