New York F. C. who play here on Saturday, March 8, in a National League game is a much stronger team than when the Steel Workers defeated it earlier in the season at New York and will bear a lot of watching. No matter what team defeats it, it always puts up a good game against Bethlehem. When they visited here last year in a league game local fans expected and easy game and were surprised to find the Steel Workers one goal behind with twenty minutes to go. Bethlehem finally succeeded in winning the game by three goals to two, and were well satisfied when the game was over as the New Yorkers proved exceptionally strong. The memory of that gave will be sufficient to prevent the Steel Workers from underestimating the ability of the visitors and they will go into t he game just as determined as they did against he Goodyear Tire and Rubber company team of Akron, last Saturday.
There will be two changes in the Bethlehem lineup on Saturday. Millar and Fletcher, who were injured against Akron, are unable to take the field. Brown, the former Canadian half-back, will be seen in the halfback line in place of Fletcher and it is probable that Easton will be seen in the forward line.
On Sunday, March 16, the Steel Workers will play Robins Dry Dock F. C. in the semi-final of the American Cup at Newark, N. J. The champions have won the American Cup for the past three years and will make a determined effort to establish a record and make it four straight.
Saturday's game against New York will be the last game the Steel Workers will take part in on their own field in three competitions. Any other games they will take part in here will be exhibition games.
