Anticipate Hard Game When Newark Team Invade Home Lair on Saturday

Back from Fall River where a revamped Bethlehem soccer team dropped an exhibition to the Marksmen by the score of 5 to 3, a long training session was held this afternoon priming for the invasion of the Newark Portuguese for an Eastern League game on Lehigh field on Saturday afternoon.

Fall River fans turned out en masse to greet the Bethlehem booters and were treated to an excellent brand of soccer.

AT half time the clubs were deadlocked at 3 goals each with the run of play in Bethlehem's favor. The game looked like ending in a draw up until ten minutes from the time when Fall River succeeded in scoring two goals. Malcolm Goldie, former Bethlehem wing forward, played outside left for Fall River. Patenande was the big scorer of the game, scoring all of his teams five goals while Jaap accounted for two of Bethlehem's markers and Gillespie, playing center forward, one.

The game against the Newark Portuguese will probably see "Bill" Gibson in action for the first time this season. The brilliant right back, recently returned from Scotland and had his first fling in the game at Fall River. Most likely this sturdy fullback will pair off with Billy Allan.

Several other changes win the lineup are anticipated due to several injured players. "Bill" Finlayson, halfback, is not fit and will not be seen in any of the two games this weekend. The absence of the big halfback will probably force shifting the versatile Johnny Rollo from the forward line to right halfback.

Alec Dick, the new and young forward who gave a very creditable display in his first game for Bethlehem, may replace Purgavie left wing and the latter move to inside forward.

Stark will be back at his usual position at forward and the line will be materially bolstered over that which played last weekend with the inclusion of Johnny Jaap at his regular inside berth.

Very much in the race for the league honors, Bethlehem trailing in third place will take no chances with the Jersey invaders and will make a strong bid to win the game. After the game here on Saturday afternoon the team will rest up overnight and then journey to Newark for their Sunday clash. The probable lineup:

Bethlehem -- Newark Portuguese
Beveridge -- G -- Pentland
Gibson -- RFB -- Rebello
Allan -- LFB -- Donskey
Rollo -- RHB -- Ekessley
Carnihan -- CHB -- Pacheco
MacGregor -- LHB -- Kirby
Gillespie -- OR -- Costa
Jaap -- IR -- Conn
Stark -- CF -- Strong
Purgavie -- IL -- O'Hara
Dick -- OL -- Scierra
