The Globe -- Bethlehem
Friday, November 22, 1918
Soccer Notes

The Bethlehem Steel Soccer team has completed training for the second round national cup game against Merchant Shipbuilding F. C. Team A, and the only doubtful starter is Harry Ratican, who has not fully recovered from his illness. If it is found inadvisable to play Ratican a re-arrangement of the forward line will be made necessary.

The Steel Workers realize that the success or failure of the year depends on the result of tomorrow's cup game and every man is determined to play himself to a standstill if necessary in order to secure a victory for Bethlehem. One strong point in favor of the champions is that they do not underestimate the ability of the visitors, and if the Merchants succeed in lowering the colors of the Steel Workers it will be because they are a better team.

The score of the Lehigh-Lafayette game will be announced at different intervals, and special car service will be run from Third and New streets to the field.

The following is the probable lineup of both teams:

Merchant Ship -- Goal, Pearce; backs, Todd and Small; halfbacks, Mathews, McKay and Wilson; forwards, Dugan, Maxwell, Heminsley, Hyslop and Burnett.

Bethlehem Steel -- Goal, Duncan; backs, Fletcher, Ferguson; halfbacks, Kirkpatrick, Campbell, Pepper; forwards, McKelvey, Butler, Easton or Ratican, Forrest and Fleming, James Kerr of Philadelphia will referee the game.
