Bethlehem Steel -- 4
Babcock & Wilcox -- 0
Bethlehem Steel won the second game of the National Soccer League pennant race from the Babcock & Wilcox team of Jersey City, at the Bethlehem Steel athletic field this afternoon by the score of 4 to 0. The locals were more effective throughout the game in front of the goal, goaltender Duncan and the rest of the defense keeping the pigskin well outside of the goal. The visitors were unfortunate in two instances in the first half, the ball striking the goal posts in two attempts to score. A large crowd was in attendance and cheered the local boos on to victory.
The second goal was secured by the locals by McKelvey in a play much similar to the first. Fleming kicked the all against the crossbars and McKelvey shot it into the goal from the rebound.
The crowd went wild with delight when Forrest in a fine individual play scored a beautiful shot from the 18-yard line.
