Laurens High School Outplays Green

Uncovering a snappy series of shift
-plays that completely dazzled their
op:)onents, the Laurens 'high school
football team clearly outclassed the
Greenwood Ii's on the local lot Fi
(lay afternoon winning the g'ame
handily 'by a score of 21 to 0. Lau
rens crossed Greenwood's goal line hi
tihe second, third an1d fourth quarter's,
Tidwell adding the extra point each
time -by pretty kicks between the hars.
I Greenwood lost its only chance to
scor in the first qluarter when it at
temptedi a forward pass on the ten
yard line with only a couple of yards
to do. The pass failed and the ball
was brought back to the twenty-yarid
line after it, had rolled past the goal
Iiies. After this the r ieenwood ladls
never had a chliance.
The Greenwood team put up a
plucky fight, but t he line .plunges of
the locals were irresistable. Coach
Estes had a'docted several shift-plays
used with telling effect by Richnond
college lin defeating the Furman teani
the Saturday before and the locals put
the plays into such perfect and power,
fult execution that thle Greenwomd
boys were fairly 'bewildered. Quar
terback Thompson, of the- locals, was
master of the situation throughout the
game and added several spectacular
plunges to his steady -headwork.
The liaurens team goes to Anderson
Friday, where they %will go up against
a formidable aggregation coached by
'Dode" Phillips, former rli-skine star.
Although considerably outweighed, the
locals expect to put up a sti'f light.
The game will be .layed at the Ander
