BETHLEHEM, Pa., January 29 -- Clan MacDonald F. C., of Brooklyn, this afternoon was eliminated by the Bethlehem Steel Company eleven, national champions, in the second round of the American Cup competition by two goals to none. The game was played on a heavy field and was witnessed by 6,000 enthusiastic fans. Today's contest was Clan MacDonald's eighteenth game and third defeat of the season. Last year Bethlehem eliminated the Brooklynites in a similar contest, two goals to one. The visitors were obliged to play on the defensive most of the time. Time and again their forwards broke away only to lose the ball in midfield. Bethlehem had 28 chances at scoring as against five by their opponents. Throughout the contest Wilson gave a remarkable exhibition at goal tending, saving no less than 8 or 10 goals. In the first half in succession he saved three shots, and in the second half he prevented scoring from three successive corner kicks. Bethlehem forced a dozen corner kicks, while the visitors had none. For offside play each team was penalized about an even number of times. Bethlehem will play Jersey A. C. next Sunday in the third round of the American Cup competition at Jersey City, arrangements are made by Manager Walton, of the Jersey City team, who witnessed today's game with Secretary Trend, of the local team.
