Bethlehem Steel company soccer team yesterday defeated Jersey City by the score of 5-0 in the third round American cup competition. The game was played at Newark, N. J.
Yesterdays victory by the local team is deserving of much praise and Jersey City fans were given a shock by the big score rolled up on their team by the champions.
Tommy Fleming was injured in the second half by a severe kick on the knee. James Ford, the Jersey City outside right was also injured during the second period. Up to the time of his injury he played splendid for the Jersey boys but found the Bethlehem defense a hard proposition to break through.
The draw for the semi-final of the American cup will take place Wednesday evening in the Continental hotel, Newark, N. J.
