BLUE RIDGE BOYS TO PLAY
ASHEVILLE HIGH SCHOOL.
Big Game Stagred Afte rLapse of Two
Years Local. Fans Enthusiastic
v Blue Ridge School will play its
first foot ball game of the season the
coming Saturday when they compete
with the Asheville High School for
gridiron honors. In anticipation of
a hard, close game, the boys are
working faithfully each afternoon in
their efforts to, master the rudiments
of the game,.
The Asheville Citizen had the -following
to say about the game:
Ashevile High School and Blue
Ridge school, at Hendersonville, . will
resume athletic relations next Satur
day with a football game on the
grounds of the latter. This game
will be the first that has been played
between the two schools since 1915,
when Blue Ridge defeated the high
schoo learn in a game that was play
ed on the Blue Ridge grounds. Hopr
ing to even things up by a game on
the! rown gridiron, Asheville chal
lenged the "winners to another game.
They, however, did not feel that way
about it. and refuse to met the local
team again that season. Thereupon
the localite sdeclared that he school
in the neighboring resort could play
mumplepeg for the rest of their na
tural lives, but that another athletic
contest could never.be staged between
teams representing the two schools.
It now appears that good feelirig
asrain is existent between the two in
stitutions, and that they are now
a waiting a chance to embrace each
other on next' Saturday.
