Eastwood's goal in the last fifteen minutes of play practically eliminated the Wanderers from the National Cup tourney Saturday afternoon at Disston Ball Park, Philadelphia. Final score: Disston, 2; Wanderers, 0. The second point tallied by Disstons, resulted from a penalty given against Ploegearts for hands, but this did not decide the issue, as Eastwood's goal paved the way for the victory.

With A. M. Addison, president of the National Referees' and the Referees' Association of Philadelphia, having charge of the Disstons-Wanderers game for the National Cup Committee, everything went along in fine style. Mr. Addison was the delegate and took care of the National Cup Committee's percentage of the receipts.
