On a muddy field, Bethlehems defeated Centenary on East End field, Saturday, in the first round of the Amateur Cup Competition by nine goals to none.
The Philadelphia team did not do at all badly in the first half and offered a strong defense to the attack of the Bethlehems forwards. Lewis was in great shooting form and scored three goals, while Garvey, who was playing at outside left in place of Fleming, added a fourth. This was the extent of the scoring at half time, Centenary having failed to score.
In the second half Bethlehems had matters pretty much all its own way and although the Centenary men played pluckily they added five more goals and ran out easy winners. The line-up:
