The Globe -- Bethlehem
December 5, 1924
STEEL FACES HARD ELEVEN
New York Giants Hope to Lower Colors of Local Soccer Team On Saturday
GOLDIE NOT TO PLAY

The first meeting this season on home loam of the Bethlehem Steel F. C. and the New York Giants is to take place on the Steel Field tomorrow afternoon. The Bethlehems oppose the Giants fresh from a well merited victory over Boston here last Saturday while the Giants invade this city equally as confident and inspired by a recent 2 to 1 victory over the Brooklyn F. C., and a scoreless draw with the sensational New Bedford F. O.

Bethlehem is in a tie for second place with the champion Fall River F. C. Both clubs have annexed 24 points. Bethlehem goal scoring average is .648, second only to that of Fall River with .710. The scoring of the Fall River team, however, has been more equally distributed among the front line while that of Bethlehem has been confined most exclusively to the brilliant efforts of Archie Stark, the premier goal scorer in the American League, whose record of twenty-seven goals to date has established a mark far ahead of his nearest rivals. The Giants by their recent successes have brought their scoring figure close to an average of .500.

Fans will welcome the return of Bob Millar to Bethlehem after an absence of several years. A veteran in experience but not in years as his blond thatched crop would indicate, Millar, when with Bethlehem was one of the most popular men on the club and his popularity extended among the vast host of Bethlehem Steel soccer fans His ability in ball control is well known to local patronage and reports are to the effect that he has not lost any of his effectiveness but rather has profited and improved by the additional years of experience after leaving Bethlehem. Millar, the type of forward whose chief asset is in deftly touching the ball through and possesses an uncanny ability of placing it in the net will be flanked on the left by Moorehouse, one of the speediest shots in the American Soccer League.

By the probable lineup announced today it is definitely assured that Malcolm Goldie will be on the sidelines and that his position will be filled by Arthur Robertson. The lineup follows:

Bethlehem Steel -- New York Giants
Highfield -- G -- Geudert
Young -- RFB -- Kelly
Ferguson -- LFB -- Meyerdiecks
MacGregor -- RHB -- Scott
Carnihan -- CHB -- Parks
McDonald -- LHB -- McKinney
Turner -- OR -- Bremer
Granger -- IR -- Poxon
Stark -- CF -- Millar
Maxwell -- IL -- Moorehouse
Robertson -- OL -- Brown
Referee -- George Young, Philadelphia.
