Echoes from Brooklyn
Commenting on the Brooklyn-Bethlehem soccer game played at the latter place last Saturday, the following excerpt is taken from an article appearing in the Brooklyn Daily Times:
"Brooklyn's fans have seen quite a number of center ward satellites this season. Andy Stevens, of New Bedford, gave a fine exhibition when he performed here several weeks ago. Johnny Nelson, of the Wanderers, is good enough to write home about. Yet Stark, the Bethlehem star, gave as fine an exhibition of center play as one could hope for under the prevailing conditions. It was marvelous to watch how he received the mud-laden sphere and passed it with unerring accuracy to either of the outsides. He scored one of the four goals himself and was responsible for the others. Stark was there when and where the Steelmen's forward wall wanted to be and no center can do more than that. Gillespie, the outside right on the Bethlehem eleven, was anther parcel of poison to Brooklyn. He chalked up two goals and generally out-smarted and out-sped the Brooklyn defense. His trick of facing the defense and then twisting around and booting the ball down the field had the Wanderers guessing no little. Gillespie made one of the finest players of the day to increase the Steelmen's total of goals. He dribbled down the field by himself and from thirty yards out, shot the ball on a line to the corner of the net."
