TEAM WILL PLAY HEREONFRIDAY Murphy Defeats Copperhill 14 to 6 On Friday Afternoon By Hubert Adams, Jr. Making it 12 wins in a row, Murphy defeated Copperhill last Friday on a muddy field to the tune of 14 to 6. The hoys from the basin put up a good fight, but the outcome of the game was not in doubt as Murphy was in' command of the game throughout. Taylor and Mauncy were the outstanding players for the local team. A nice bit of broken field running was done by Harbison of Copperhill who took a punt on his own 40 yard line and ran down the side lines for C yards and their only touchdown. The try for extra point was no good.
