The Globe -- Bethlehem
December 1, 1922
Before Three Thousand People at Brooklyn Thursday -- Score 1 to 0.

The Bethlehem soccer team visited Brooklyn yesterday and defeated the Brooklyn F. C. in an American League game by the score of 1 goal to none before three thousand spectators. Bethlehem had much the best of the game, but lacked flashing powers when in the vicinity of goal.

No scoring took place in the first half, but the Steel Workers missed several good chances to locate the net. In the second half Bethlehem started off with a rush and Riley, the Brooklyn custodian, had a strenuous [. . . ] that lasted for at least twenty minutes. He, however, made some sensational saves and it looked as if [. . .] score would end in a scoreless tie when McNiven registered the only goal from six yards range.

The Bethlehem center forward got possession of the ball on the rebound from Hunt the Brooklyn left fullback, who stopped a shot from Faulds. Riley had no chance with the parting shot of McNiven, the ball sailing into the corner of the net beyond his reach.

Bethlehem was attacking desperately in the closing stages, but was unable to add to the score, and the game ended in a victory for the Steel Workers by one goal to nothing. This is the fourth successive victory registered by the Steel Workers in league play on foreign soil. This places the home team in a very favorable position in the league standing. The lineup:
