Brittan Back in Lineup and Local Players Run Away With League Match

With Harold Brittan, center forward, back at his usual position after an absence of two months due to an injured leg, the Philadelphia F. C. defeated Fall River in the American League series, 5 to 2 on Sunday afternoon.

The Phillies scored two goals in the first half to one by the New England stars. In the final half, despite the muddy conditions of the field the Quaker experts added three points and Captain Connie Lynch's teammates managed to score one goal.

Brittan was given a round of applause as he turned out with the Philadelphia players. Jaap, a diminutive forward from the vicinity of Pittsburgh, played inside right, and his passes and speed fitted in nicely with the improvements shown by the forwards.

Fall River presented Booth in goal and the usually reliable back made a good substitute for Albion, the team's regular custodian. In the final half he put up a fine game, stopping half a dozen hard drives, although the final goal by the Quakers resulted from a free kick against Booth for taking more than tree steps in clearing.
