By winning the single game played over the weekend, Fall River, National champions went into first place in the American Soccer League race by the margin of one point. Bethlehem Steel, Boston F. C. and Indiana Flooring are deadlocked for second lace with a total of 20 points each. Fall River has played one game more than each of the three contending clubs.

Archie Stark, the brilliant Bethlehem forward and the Babe Ruth of soccer, increased his goal scoring average materially over the weekend. Stark, who led the circuit last season, is again well in the lead with a total of 21 goals in 14 games or an average of one and one-half goals for each game played thus far this season.

With the games scheduled for next week the deadlock for second place is almost certain to be broken and chances are that Fall River will be ousted out of first place position. According to the listing of games either one of the four leading teams is likely to go into first place. The most important games will be the Coats-Bethlehem clash on Saturday and the Fall River-Bethlehem clash on Sunday. Both games will be played away from Bethlehem. Fall River opposes Boston at Boston next Saturday in the first half of a double bill which winds up with Bethlehem the following day. The standing of the clubs to date follows:
