Local Players under Philadelphia Colors Score 5-0 Victory

The coterie of former Bethlehem Steel soccer players now representing the Philadelphia F. C. gave promise of making a strong fight in the new league and cup honors when in an exhibition game on Saturday afternoon they defeated an All-Star team by the score of 5 goals to none. The game was played before a fair gathering on Disston field at Tacony, Philadelphia.

All the players appeared in excellent condition and despite the warm weather went through the full ninety minutes of play at top pace. The All-Stars, including several former local players of which probably the most prominent was Joe Morrison, were unable to cope with the fast pace set by the Philadelphia club and seldom initiated any offensive movement, being for the most held on the defensive.

The game was a tryout before the opening of the league contests which will be staged Saturday. The Philadelphia team journeys to Pawtucket, R. I., to meet the J & P Coats eleven. The score:

Philadelphia -- All-Stars
Kerr -- G -- Benson
Bethune -- RFB -- Fletcher
Ferguson -- LFB -- Collier
Murray -- RHB -- White
Porter -- CHB -- Christopher
Fullerton -- LHB -- Rogers
Morley -- OR -- Joe Morrison
D. Campbell -- IR -- Dunlop
Brittan -- CF -- Eastman
Forrest -- IL -- Muirhead
Fleming -- OL -- Lorimer
Goals -- Campbell, Brittan, Forrest, Fleming 2 (one a penalty). Referee: George Young. Linesmen - -R. Morrison, Bethlehem; John Walders, Philadelphia.
