It was announced last night at Philadelphia that Barnett, the inside left of the Disstons soccer team, had injured his leg in the game against Babcock & Wilcox Thanksgiving afternoon, and would not be able to play against Puritan Y. M. L. in the second round of the National Cup this afternoon at Disston's Ball Park. Barnett was put under the x-ray at the Episcopal Hospital yesterday afternoon, as it is feared that a small bone is broken or the muscles of his leg badly bruised. Barnett, who comes from Belfast, Ireland, made his initial appearance with Disstons on their home lot Thursday, and although he did not play a brilliant game, his head work helped his forwards, who worked together better in this match than heretofore this season. With Barnett out of the team this will necessitate a shirt in the halfbacks and forwards, Johnny Small going from right half to inside left, with Rogers coming into the team at right half.
The Bethlehem Steel soccer team traveled to Philadelphia today to play the Veteran A. A. F. C. in the second round of the National Cup, on the Third and Lehigh streets grounds. The steel Workers defeated the Veterans 7 to 0 in the American Cup but the Veterans have been greatly strengthened and the Steel Workers are determined to take no chances. The probable lineup of the Bethlehem was: Duncan, Fletcher, Ferguson, Murray, Campbell, Kirkpatrick, Murphy, Pepper, McGreevey, Chadwick, Fleming.
ON Saturday, December 8th, Bethlehem Steel soccer team will travel to Philadelphia where they will meet Disston A. A. on Franklin field for the benefit of the Red Cross.
