The Bethlehem Steel Workers and New York F. C. are the only teams with a clean slate in the National Soccer League, according to the standings announced by Secretary Patrick. Bethlehem has the edge on their New York rivals, however, inasmuch as they have played and won four games, while New York has played and won three matches. That gives Bethlehem a two-point bulge over their rivals, a lead that might come in handy toward the close of the season, owing to the fact that the race for the bunting promises to be exceptionally close.
Only two matches are scheduled in the National League series for Sunday, Robins Dry Dock vs. Erie A. A> at Todd's field, Brooklyn, N. Y., and New York F. C. vs. Disston at New York oval. Babcock and Wilcox, Federal Ship and Paterson F. C. are all listed in American cup games, while Bethlehem has an off day, but will tackle Wolfenden-Shore at Cardington, Pa., in an exhibition contest. ON present form the National League pennant looks to be a cinch for the Bethlehem team, with its great forward line composed of Wilson, Satterwaite, Brittan, Forrest and Fleming. That is a combination stronger than anything seen before in this country, which is saying a mouthful considering the class of forwards who played with the thistles, Albions, Hibernians, British-Americans and Eagles of other days.
