Edenton Aces Win Regional
Class 2-A Championship By

Edenton’s Aces ran roughshod
ovhr the. Garner Blue Rams in
Greenville Friday night to win
the regional Class 2-A champion
ship 40 to 0. The game was
played in a downpour of rain
during the first Half which made
the field wet and sloppy and
had' some effect in slowing
down both teams* each of which
had the reputation of being fast.
After the first sets plays it was
next to impossible to distinguish
the numbers on players of either'
The Aces, however, outclassed j
the Rams in every department j
of the game and before the con- j
test was very old the outcome
appeared very little in doubt.
The Rams never seriously threat
ened to score, only once get-j
ting any closer than the Eden
ton 27-yard line and on only
one other occasion penetreated,
Edenton territory and that was
oh the 49-yard line. So stub- 1
born was the Edenton defense
that it yielded only 54 yards by
nishing during the night and
allowed the Rams only one first
down. Despite the wet field, I

We should not speak in terms of words
When giving thanks to God above
For His rich blessings through the years
Bestowed because of His true love;
But from the depth of heart and soul
We ought to give Him thanks and praise.
And live to honor His great name,
However long or short our days.
As years of time go passing by
God makes provision for our needs
From trees and vines and wondrous crops
That grow from fields of tiny seeds; .
For truly it is from the soil
That all mankind are clothed and fed,
And through the strength and toil of men
And by the sweat that must be shed.
Then as we think of life on earth.
With all it takes to keep us here,
Along with health across the years
That is to us both sweet and dear,
And crowned with blessings for the soul
That only heaven’s King can give.
Our thanks should flow like living streams
For all His bounties while we live.
O heart and mind and soul, look up
From whence our many blessings flow.
And waft your thanks On wings of praise
Like pilgrims of the tong ago,
That Gocfbe pleased to bless us on
As we have need from day to day,
Whatever be our place in life
And hear us as we humbly pray!
