The Purple Whirlwind football squad
triumphed over Leaksville. who pre
sented a lig'ht. but plucky little squad,
19 to 0. Friday. September 30. The
local squad should have done much
better, while the Leaksville squad
played better than expected. Both
teams were handicapped by having
stars absent from theii- line-ups.
The scoring began when Rolland in
tercepted a pass on Leaksville's 25-
yard line in the middle of the second
period. The ball changed hands after
both squads failed to gain. Then
Leaksville kicked. Greensboro fum
bled. but Gerringer. of Greensboro, re
covered the ball. Lee Wall circled left
end for a touchdown after a series of
end runs featured by Boren. Wrenn
failed to kick the extra point.
In the middle of the third quarter
Wrenn blocked a punt which was re
covered by Gerringer on Leaksville's
35-yard marker. In the next play it
looked as though Pittman was skirt
ing right end. but instead he threw a
lateral to Boren who ran 20 yards for
a touchdown. A failed to make
the extra point.
The Winds' third touchdown was
made after a series of line plunges
featured by Norcum who backed the
ball over for the last score. He also
bucked it over for the extra point.
Greensboro threatened again when
Bill Boren got away starting on a right
piid run on his own 45-yard maikei,
