The Bethlehem Steel soccer team will do the entertaining on the home lot tomorrow afternoon during the absence of the baseball team. The Erie A. A. conquerors of Bethlehem early in the season, will meet the Steel Workers in a National League tilt.
Much importance [ . . . ] contest for it practically means the elimination of one of the [ . . . ] in the race for the National League honors. The standing of the two teams is practically the same with the Robins Dry Docks eleven, the only obstruction in their climb for the league honors.
Last year Bethlehem won the National and American cup competitions and then made a clean sweep by annexing the National League title. Thus for this year the trophy room of the Steel Workers has lost the two cup trophies and will make a determined stand to annex at least one of the league honors.
This will be the first home game, or, in fact, the first game played by the Steel Workers since their defeat at Harrison, N. J., by the Robins in the cup competition. However, the players have not been inactive. Strenuous sessions of practice have been the routine and the players should enter the game tomorrow in the best of condition. Bethlehem can hardly afford to lose tomorrow's game if the team expects to win the league honors. If successful against the Erie's a victory over the Robins the following week will give them a strong hold on the bunting.
The visitors are expected to arrive at noon tomorrow and will be ready for action at 3 o'clock.
