Hello Jukka,

Upon further research, the Times of London also has Lohrer listed as the lone Swiss goal scorer in the 2:1 loss to Canada. Plus I have found some discrepancies as well. The two Canadian newspapers list Kemp as having scored in the second period, but the Times of London has Kemp scoring in the first minute of the first period, which would be the more accurate account of the match.

"At the start, a runaway victory for Canada seemed possible when they went straight through in the first minute for Kemp to beat goalie Arnold Hirz easily from Forsay's pass. Switzerland soon proved that this was a "snap" goal by holding the Canadian attack afterwards and also being distinctly unlucky not to equalize. Swiss forwards Lohrer and Torriani were continually dangerous with good shots which Canadian goalie Campbell had some difficulty in clearing, but it was not until the second period that Switzerland drew level."

"A fine rush by Kessler and Lohrer led up to the Swiss scoring. Campbell only partially saving a fast shot from Lohrer which glanced off his pads into the goal amid tremendous enthusiasm."

So I guess this means that one of the Kesslers did not score a goal in the 1937 WC.
And Lohrer should get credit for an additional goal in his totals, from 5 goals to 6.
Plus, there is confusion over how many goals the Cattini brothers each had. Some have Hans Cattini with 4 goals scored, some with 3 goals.

Jukka, what do you think about this? Thanks for your help.
