Ratican Again Prominent in Classic Games
Harry Ratican, popularly known in Bethlehem, apparently has not lost his prowess as a soccer player. The accurate booting of the former Bethlehem Steel center forward was responsible for placing teammates, the Todd Shipyard's football club in the National Championship which will be staged at Fall River, Mass. This right to represent the East against the West in the National soccer classic was earned by defeating the Abbott eleven, of Fore River, Mass., on Saturday afternoon, 2 goals to 1. Both goals were counted by Ratican after the team was held scoreless in the first half. Within twelve minutes after the restart of the second half, Harry was responsible for the two goals scored in the American League game yesterday. Todd's lost to the New York F. C. In the lineup it is noted that Ratican was among the missing for this contest, the club management apparently storing him up to avoid any possible injury before the final with the Western invaders.
