Durham held the big end of the score
throughout the entire contest with the
exception of the first few seconds of
play when Greensboro held a slight lead.
However, G. H. S. fans had hardly be
gun to congratulate themselves on ob
taining an early lead when the two
times state champs and runners-up at
the national meet both times, unleashed
a terrible passing attack that the wear
ers of the Purple and Gold were power
less to resist.
Between the halves of the game
“Red” Ogburn and “Red” Parrish boxed
three furious rounds to a draw. Both
“Red” Bishop, Ogburn’s manager, and
“Red” Wood, Parrish’s manager, were
highly indignant at what they termed
the “Raw decision” handed them by
Referee “Red” Routh, and both ex
pressed the willingness to match their
men at some future date providing an
other referee could be secured. Reliable
reports have it that the next time these
two huskies meet, “Red” Grange will
be the third man in the ring.
