Steel City Soccer Teams Makes Last Appearance in Brooklyn Before Disbanding

Brooklyn, N. Y., April 27 – Prevailed upon to play one more game in Brooklyn, the soccer players of the Bethlehem Steel corporation of Bethlehem, Pa., which will disband shortly, encountered the Hakoah All-Stars in the Atlantic Coast league championship competition and suffered a 3-2 defeat at Commercial field before a crowd of 3,000 fans, yesterday afternoon. Playing with the wind in the first half Bethlehem led by 1-0 when ends were changed. Frank Tollen took advantage of a momentary weakness in the Hakoah defense and shot the only goal for Bethlehem in that period.

The second half had not long been under way when Lazio Sternberg, from a free kick, evened up the score. Leo Grunfeld sent the All-Jewish team ahead but within two minutes Archie Stark equalized for Bethlehem. A shift in the lineup of the Hakoah forwards brought the winning goal 15 minutes from full time, this distinction fell to Max Greunwald. The tally of corners favored Bethlehem by five to four.
