For some reason or other the Bethlehem dribblers seem to get their stiffest opposition from the Philadelphia F. C. and this was again true last Saturday afternoon when for the third time this season the Bethlehem clan managed to conquer in an American League game by a margin of one goal. On two previous games the margin of victory was but one point. And yet the Philadelphia outfit have failed to perform any unusual campaigning in either league or cup games this season. Their most notable victory was one quite unexpected over the New York F. C., but other than that have no unusual achievements. It is safe to say that with Bishop, a center forward, reinforcing the lineup and a new comer by the name of Chapman in goal, the Phillies have made their most formidable showing of the season. These games recall the days of the old Bethlehem team when Disston's, of Philadelphia, also always came through with the unexpected strength in their games against Bethlehem. Missing in the Bethlehem lineup was Walter Jackson, center forward, whose cup play thus far this season has been nothing less than the sensation of soccer circles. Surely the management acted wisely in benching Walter as a precaution against any possible injury with the Eastern final of the National Cup looming up to be played off next Sunday in Brooklyn.
