Second Victory In as Many Days Is Landed by Local Team Sunday

Bethlehem Steel F. C. annexed their second victory over the weekend on Sunday afternoon by defeating the Wolfenden-Shore eleven in Philadelphia by the score of 4 to 3. Bethlehem competed against the crack Philadelphia amateur club with a decidedly revised lineup, which included Davy Ferguson, at back, playing his first game since recovering from illness, and Bamford, a member of the Wanderers, of the Lehigh Valley Soccer League, who was given a trial at center forward.

More than once the Bethlehems swung the ball from one end of the field to the other passing and dribbling through the Shore gang without any of the latter touching the ball, and then having the parting effort either sail by or cleared by Harry Pearce, the Quakers' excellent goalie.

At the end of the first half the score did not look any too rosy for the Steel Workers who were trailing along on the short end of a 2 to 0 count.

One forward movement after the other was launched in the face of which the Wolfenden Shore defense fairly crumpled and in a very short time Bethlehem had notched enough goals to equalize the score. Never realizing in their efforts, two more goals were counted and the game virtually sewed up. IN the closing minutes of play the home team, by desperate playing, managed to annex their third goal.

Wolfenden-Shore -- Bethlehem
Pearce -- G -- Carson
Kirkpatrick -- RFB -- MacFarlane
