Warm Reception Awaiting The Steel Workers
That a warm reception is awaiting the Bethlehem Steel F. C. on their invasion of Fall River on Saturday for an American Soccer League game is a foregone conclusion. Up New England way the Steel Workers are the bitterest rivals of the Fall River aggregation and this is readily discerned by the tremendous attendance at all Bethlehem games, not forgetting of course the familiar "raspberries" handed out by the anvil chorus. The Bethlehem team added fuel to the flame when in the first meeting of the season here on the home lot it was the Steel Workers that scored the first victory over Fall River in the league campaigning. That the defeat stung goes without saying and the gang of Brittan dribblers will pass up nothing in avenging that defeat. Both teams are threatened with being pretty well spent for before these rivals clash each has an important engagement on the day previous. Bethlehem will meet J & P Coats, contended by many critics as the team that will come through with a dash in contending for the honors while Fall River tackles Boston F. C., a big professional club that will have to fight desperately to retain its lead as a runner-up for first place now held by Fall River. The outcome of these four games should present some interesting figures in the percentage column of the club standing.
