Touchdowns in Game
Between Reserve Teams
Mason Buie plowed over the line
twice in the game on Thursday, No
vember 13, to tie the score 12 all, be
tween the Guilford reserves, playing
their first game of the season, and a
stubborn Greensboro high reserve club.
The game was a good light all the way
through, both teams picking up good
yardage while they had possession of
the hall. Greensboro led the attack in
the first half but Guilford came back
in I lie second half and more than
rivaled their power.
Wes lonian displayed some wonder

line to set the stage for both touch

Greensboro scored both their touch
downs in the second quarter and led
12-0 at half-time. Carl I'hibbs led the
Greensboro attack by scoring one
touchdown. The Quakers showed great
offensive power in the- second half,
scoring two touchdowns as the result
of long drives from deep in their own
territory, thus tying the score 12-12,
