STILL AT TOP OF AMERICAN LEAGUE
Philadelphia F. C. Composed of Local Players Defeated Falco 5 to 1.
OTHER LEAGUE RESULTS

By defeating Falco, of Holyoke, on Saturday afternoon, the Philadelphia F. C., comprised mostly of former Bethlehem Steel players, retains its position at the top of the American League. The final score was 5 goals to 1.

Falco started out well and was one up a short time from the kickoff when Bethune was penalized in the dreaded area for tripping, Downies converting the resultant penalty awarded by Referee Kerr. However this was the extent of their scoring, as the Quaker side took a hand and Murray got the equalizer shortly with Brittan assuming the lead before the interval.

After crossing over, there was no doubting the superiority of the Philadelphians, the Down Easters being unable to fathom the strong defense of the homesters, while the latter got through for three more tallies. Lineup:

Phila. F. C. -- Falco
