tice Will Have an Outstanding
Team, it is Believed

Thursday night with a score of 27-23.
It was the second game of the season
for the local quint and considering this
fact, G. H. S., will have a winning team
to represent her this season. The pass
ing attack of the entire Greensboro
team was the outstanding part of the
game. The boys showed that with a bit
more experience they will be ready for
any opponent that can be offered.
Pete Wyrick led his team in scor
ing with nine points to his credit.
Briggs was outstanding performer on
the Bessemer five.
