Fall River Tops League
Fall River, National soccer champions, has advanced to first place in the standing of the American Soccer League, the only drastic change in the standing of the teams over the weekend. Indiana Flooring, the club that conquered Bethlehem Steel in the game at New York on Sunday, dropped the first tilt of the season in a Columbus Day attraction yesterday. Indiana Flooring, leading league club all season, was defeated by the score of 1 goal to none.
Missed Opportunity to Ride at Top
Because a prank of fate played havoc with the Steel Workers in their Sunday game against Indiana Flooring is the only reason that the Bethlehem clan are not riding at the top of the circuit. Playing at New Bedford, Mass., on Saturday, Bethlehem easily disposed of the newcomers in the league and at no time was there any doubt of supremacy. Bethlehem looked equal to the occasion in New York and had much the better of the play when half time ended, leading by a count of 1 goal to none. It was in the second half when early following the resumption of play Bob Terris was injured and had to withdraw. With only ten men remaining on the field for Bethlehem Indiana Flooring shot in the two goals that brought them victory.
