Bethlehem, Pa., October 16. -- The Boys' Club held Bethlehem Steel Company F. C. to a 3 to 0 score in an American League match here today.
The field was slippery from yesterday's rain and greatly inconvenienced the players. The Philadelphians had but three tries at scoring during the contest, while Bethlehem had 26 in the first half and 22 in the second. Most of them were wild kicks.
In the matter of corner kicks, Bethlehem forced ten, while the visitors had none. The Boys' Club had ten free kicks, however, on account of the local team's offside playing. The visitors were penalized only three times for offside work. Kerr, the visitors' goalkeeper, and the backs of the Boys' Club saved no less than a dozen goals. The Boys' Club had little chance to score save once, when Scaife made a brilliant save. The visitors lacked teamwork. Bethlehem's combination work was always effective in advancing the ball.
