A crowd of 5,000 attended the game. Bethlehem obtained six corners to the visitor’s one. Ilakoah excelled in defensive work.
In honor of the visitors Bethlehem took a half-holiday. American flags decorated the principal streets prior to the game, through which passed an automobile parade, headed by Mayor James A. Leakle and members of the Hakoah and Bethlehem teams. R. Edgar Lewis, Vice President of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, and his brother, W. Luther Lewis, Chairman of the local Soccer Committee; Michael Kelley and Abraham Tuvim formed the Reception Committee.
