NEW YORK, April 4 - The champion Bethlehem Steel soccer team, four times National cup holders, were beaten today at Todd's Field, Brooklyn, by the Robins Drydock by 1 to 0 in the fifth round of the National challenge cup competition, before 5,000 people. Intense interest was aroused in the meeting of these two soccer giants and the large crowd were rewarded by seeing one of the most exciting battles staged in this district in years. The Robins won the toss and Bethlehem kicked off sharp to time. The Dockers started off at a fast clip and forced two corners in the first minute of the game. Bethlehem returned the ball and a first time shot by Forrest was well caught by Renzulli. A foul by Neil Clarke looked dangerous but Robertson relieved with a big kick. Bethlehem got going in great style. Forrest and Corrigan both sending in stinging shots which were well cleared. Keeping up the pressure McKelvey skipped the cross bar with a beauty while Murray nearly brought about the downfall of the Robins with a terrific volley from a 20-yard range. The Dockers defenders survived the onslaught and, well led by Harry Ratican, bombarded Duncan, but the goalie was in fine form. Half time arrived with the score a blank.

The second opened up at a terrific pace. Ratican and Miller putting in some great work. Both broke clean through but Duncan brought off some wonderful saves. Shanholtz beat Collier and looked certain to score but the fullback recovered himself and charged the player off the ball in the nick of time. Ferguson was conspicuous with some sterling play and was loudly applauded by the big crowd. Ratican broke through again and Duncan brought off a marvelous save by throwing himself full length at the ball. As the end of the regulation period no goals had been scored and extra time was ordered. Excitement rose to fever heat as each team made desperate efforts to score. The Robins finished up a great attacking movement by forcing a corner off Ferguson in the last minute of the game. Garside placed the ball beautifully and McGuire, getting his boot to the ball in the nick of time, crashed it into the net with an unstoppable shot. The steel workers were badly handicapped in having to take the field without the services of their brilliant outside left, Tommy Fleming, who is laid up with an attack of laryngitis. The Robins Drydock will now meet the clever Fore River team of Quincy, Mass., in the Eastern semi-final. The lineup:
