City Edenton Outfit Turns On Steam In Second Half to Win Game py 28-6 Score An inspired Elizabeth City Hfeh School football team held the high-flying Edenton Aces to a single touchdown during the first half in Elizabeth City Fri day night in the annual clash of 1 these two arch rivals. In fact the calibre of play exhibit ed by the Yellow Jackets in the fifrst half discounted the pre game opinion of the strength at Coach Honey Johnson’s 1960 fdotball machine. The Jackets played the Aces on about even terms during the first half, so that there was considerable ap prehension on the part of many Edenton fans that the outcome might easily develop into an other major upset. However,, the Aces came back strong in the second half and finally de feated the Jackets twice in suc cession and for only the second time on their home field by a score of 28-6. The Aces were held scoreless in the first quarter with neither threatening to score. It was about midway of the second quarter that the Aces in a 61- yard march scored when Bubba Hopkins crashed through the line from three yards out. Hop kins bore the brunt of the drive for he carried the ball 10 times and registered gains through the line on every play. On the second half kickoff, Jerry Tolley, to a great extent, relieved the pressure for Eden ton fans when he pulled in the ball on the 22-yard line and in a beautiful piece of ball-carrying scampered 78 yards for a touch down to put- the Aces i* thw lead 14-0. The Aces’ third touchdown came about midway of the third quarter when Tolley, who was about to be tackled, latereled to Fred Britton, who went the distance. The final counter was made in the fourth quarter when Forehand passed to Tol iey, who was far out in the open and merely trotted across the goal line.
