Bethlehem Steel's soccer team will meet Joliet F. C., the winners of the Western Division in the semi final of the National Cup. Joliet performances to date have been one unbroken series of victories defeating all the teams in the west with comparative ease and the soccer enthusiasts of that section are confident that they are this year capable of capturing the blue ribbon of soccerdom. However, the steel workers have set their heart on the National Cup and although the Western Champions are a greatly improved team from last year they will have a tremendous task on hand to eliminate the local representatives.
Whelan, the Bethlehem goaltender, was a "spectator" in Saturday's game. He did not get one shot in the entire ninety minutes.
Bethlehem Steel have never shown to better advantage than they did on Saturday and although the Scots' record was a very creditable one they never had a chance to get under way, the Steel Workers playing with an understanding and aggressiveness that would have defeated any team in the east.
Bethlehem Steel will probably play Babcock & Wilcox in a National League game in Bayonne, N. J., next Sunday, March 17th.
