While Bethlehem is topping the circuit and is established in first place by a considerable margin, there is still a mathematical chance for Boston and Fall River. However, each of these clubs must win all their remaining games while Bethlehem would have to lose all of their seven games remaining.
On Saturday afternoon Bethlehem will field a strong club against Indiana Flooring in hopes of clinching the American Soccer League title and also as a conditioner for the big International game the following Wednesday. Injuries may make it necessary to somewhat rearrange the lineup for the Saturday game, but it is assured that every player with the exception of "Bill" Allen will be physically fit and at his post for the International clash.
Only one cup game is booked over the weekend and that is the semi-final in the National Cup in the New England bracket, in which Fall River and Providence will meet at Tiverton, R. I., the home grounds of the Marksmen. While the majority of critics are stringing with Fall River to advance tot he final round, there are many, nevertheless, familiar with the game usually played by Providence against its neighboring New England rival, who would not be surprised if the Sam Fletcher clan cam out on top. The game promises to be a bitter combat. The weekend schedule of league and cup games, together with the referees, follows:
Boston vs. J & P Coats, at Boston. Referee, R. Rose.
Philadelphia vs. Newark, at Philadelphia. Referee, E. McCabe.
Brooklyn vs. Newark, at Brooklyn. Referee. W. Fraser.
