Philadelphia Centennials and Hakoah Will Be Opponents of Bethlehem Booters.

For the first time since Bethlehem started campaigning in the new Eastern Soccer League the club will be without a home game for this coming weekend. Instead it will be actively engaged in a weekend twin bill away from home.

On Saturday afternoon Bethlehem will clash with the Philadelphia Centennials on the latter's grounds and on Sunday on to New York to meet Hakoah at Starlight Park.

Due to the lack of reserves and the number of injuries on the team the club is far from being at its best. Johnny Rollo, whose services were sadly missed at outside left in the game against New York Giants last Saturday, is still nursing a badly injured side and will probably be out of the game for the next week or two.

"Bill" Allen is still bothered with an injured knee, a handicap plainly evident by his work against the Giants and although hardly fit to play will no doubt be pressed into service in at least one of the weekend games. The hard schedule thus far has had a telling effect on the men and besides these mentioned there are quite a few other players who are nursing injuries of minor nature.

A league meeting was held in New York last night at which routine business was discussed and the schedule arranged for the next month.
