New Bedford Lewis Cup Winners
Failing in their efforts to stage a comeback similar to that against Bethlehem in which the New York Giants wrested the cup trophy from the locals, the Gotham booters fell one goal shy of the aggregate total in surrendering to New Bedford in the final round of the American Soccer League cup competition for the H. E. Lewis cup. The games were played Saturday and Sunday. At New Bedford on Saturday the Whalers defeated the Giants by the score of 5 to 1. When entertained in the oval of the New York Giants on Sunday, New Bedford dropped the game by the count of 3 to 0. However the aggregate total of goals of the two games stood at 5 to 4 in favor of New Bedford and incidentally the cup laurels will remain with the Whalers for the season 1926.
