BETHLEHEM VS. HOMESTEAD
Big Game Scheduled For Saturday on Bethlehem Steel Field.
Work on closing in the east and west sides of the grandstand is progressing favorably and this work should be completed by March 10. Workmen are getting the field in shape for Saturday's championship game with Homestead. The visitors are coming here with a big reputation and lots of confidence and the local management realizes that the champions will have to be in the very best of condition to uphold their title. Walter Hinds, Philadelphia, has been appointed by the United States Football association to referee this important contest and T. W. Cahill, secretary of the United State Football Association will represent the national commission. Extra time must be played in the event of a tie score at the end of the regular playing period. The sensational work of Homestead this season places them on a par with the best teams in the country and western critics who have seen both teams in action predict that the meeting of these two teams will result in one of the closest and bitterest fights in the National cup competition this year. Trainer Machen is putting the champions through a special training. All of the players are fit and the champions will present their strongest line-up. Neutral linesmen will be agreed up.Bethlehem Steel Soccer Club
