Defeated in the National and American cup competitions, the Bethlehem Steel soccer team will retain their laurels in the National League and will sport the trophy awarded in this circuit for another year.
The Erie F. C., early season conquerors of Bethlehem, although later defeated by the home team, made it possible for the Bethlehem clan to win this honor by holding the Robins Dry Docks to a draw in the game played on Saturday afternoon. As a result of this decision, Bethlehem lead in the National League by one point.
Owing to the inclement weather conditions early in the season when games were postponed week after week on account of snow and storm, action was suggested to continue the league season until June 6. In view of this Bethlehem had two more games to play, one of which was scheduled for Sunday with Robins Dry Dock.
A meeting of the league was held in Newark last Friday night, at which the delegates refused to recognize the actions taken relative to continuing the season and as a result the league terminated with the games played on Sunday which shows Bethlehem leading by one point in the league standing.
It is more than likely that the game scheduled with Robins and Bethlehem for this week will b e played. However, the game will be an exhibition contest.
