The game will probably be the last major soccer tilt in this city for the balance of the season, for with several more rounds of cup soccer to be completed, it is highly probable that the home club will abandon the remainder of the league games.
In meeting Boston, Bethlehem will oppose a club which threatens to give the Steel Workers a battle for the American Cup championship. Both teams are still very much in the running, and while e Fall River is partly favored to come through in the New England bracket in this classic, it is Boston that has proven the Nemesis to the cup aspirations of the Harold Brittan clan the last two seasons.
Since Bethlehem started its sensational grind, which wound up with victory in the National Challenge Cup and advanced to the semi-final round in the American League cup competition, the club has not lost a game. In the cup campaign the team disposed of all the survivors in the Metropolitan bracket and then whipped Coats in the final of the Eastern Division, following this victory with a one-sided win over the Ben Millers, of St. Louis, for the national championship. In the American League cup affair, the Steelmen have shipped Philadelphia and Newark and a week from next Sunday will probably meet the New York Giants in the semi-final round. In that event and in the event of victory, the Steel Workers will meet the New England representative in the final, most likely closing up shop, due to the lateness of the season, after that game.
