The Globe-Times -- Bethlehem
April 28, 1930
Wind-Up Shop With Defeats at New Bedford and Brooklyn

The final curtain for the Bethlehem soccer team was dropped in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon, losing in the grand finale to Hakoah All-Stars by the score of 3 to 2. It was the second reverse suffered by the Bethlehem booters in two days, following a 2 to 0 defeat at the hands of New Bedford on Saturday afternoon. Upon the return home arrangements were made to disband.

The two games over the weekend concluded the layout for the month of April, the expiration of which was the time specified to discontinue in the Atlantic Coast Soccer League. From Fall River an invitation has been received to play the Marks delegation in one more game but it is understood this invitation already has been turned down.

To go through with the last two games several dramatic changes were necessary in the lineup of the team most of which were occasioned by the limited number of players still on hand and injuries. The backfield line especially shifted about due to the absence of Carnihan and Finlayson. Massie, an inside forward, filled in in his department while Johnny Rollo paired off with Gibson at fullback.

More than three thousand fans turned out in Brooklyn to bid farewell to the Bethlehem team. The lineup:

Hakoah -- Bethlehem
Fischer -- G -- Fraser
Grosse -- RB -- Gibson
Sternbert -- LB -- Rollo
Hickolsburg -- RH -- Massie
Guttman -- CH -- Reid
Mahrer -- LH -- McGregor
Schwarz -- OR -- Gillespie
Haeusler -- IR -- Tollan
Gruenwald -- C -- Stark
Wertmann -- IL -- Jaap
Gruenfeld -- OL -- Dick
Goals -- Hakoah: Sternberg, Gruenfeld, Gruenwald. Bethlehem: Tollan, Stark. Substitutes -- Wegner for Grosse, Robertson for Dick. Time of halves -- 45 minutes.
