Speedy Soccer Teams Battle to Deadlock Both Scores in First Half

The failure of Johnny Jaap to convert a penalty kick forced Bethlehem Steel soccer team to divide honors with the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon when before two thousand fans the post-season game played in New York ended in a one goal draw. All the scoring was done in the first half. The penalty against the Giants came in the second half when to relieve the pressure the Gotham booters handled.

Fifteen minutes from the start the Giants took the lead when Moorhouse, on the left wing, sent across a long, low pass to the center. Brown steadied and turning quickly, sent the ball into Bethlehem's net for the opening tally of the game.

Staging a spirited rally through the center close to half-time, the league champions harassed the Giants' defense. As McAdams miskicked and Taylor tried vainly to retrieve the ball, McClure was drawn out of his goal. Stark neatly sidestepped the goalie and had no trouble netting the ball and equaling New York's score.

Midway in the second half a penalty was given against Tandler for handling. Jaap of Bethlehem took the kick, but missed the try.
