The Perquimans Indians came
from a five-point half time
deficit to defeat the Edenton
Aces in a .thrilling overtime
game at Hertford 45-44.
An improved defense that al
most completely kept the Aces
out of the middle helped the In
dians to go ahead in the final
quarter. Only a long jump-shot
by Billy Cook Griffin with about
40 seconds to go kept the Aces
in the game and the overtime.
But the Aces failed to find
the sharp set shooting ability
they had in, the final 16 minutes.
Only Billy Wilkins could manage
to hit. for Edenton in the final
quarter, and that wasn’t quite
enough. Whitey Matthews for
the Indians matched Billy’s lone
goal and Bevi Tucker sank a
free throw to Ice the cake.
The Aces took a 13-8 first
quarter lead as they sank all
grades of shots. They pushed the
score to 23-18 at the half. Butj

Big Dave Burton led the In
dians with 13 points and Johnny
Miller was right behind with 12.
The girls’ game turned into an
outright massacre and the Per
quimans fans lapped it up. The
Acelets could find no defense
against tall Whitla McGoogan as
she stood under the basket and
poured in 40 points. Her team
mates put 20 more in the bag

the score indicates. The Acelets

Both of the referees agreed
that the boys’ game was one of
