front with the scoring honors, hav
ing four of the locals' total of 14.
The Green Wave opened the scor
ing in the first inning when Thig
pen. who singled, was scored by a
double by H Wynne. The locals held
the one run margin until the fifth
inning when Edenton went into the
lead with 3 runs to their credit. In
the sixth the Green Wave tallied one
score, and then tied up the ball game
in the last of the seventh 3-all.
Edenton made the outcome of the
long contest look gloomy for the lo
cals in the tenth when they opened
up to score two runs- But the Green
les came back fighting in their half
of the tenth to tie the score at 5-all.
In the last of the eleventh inning,
S. C Griffin opened with a single
and was advanced to second by G.
Wynne's sacrifice bunt. Cullipher
was given a frye ride to first when
he was hitbyapitched ball. J, Thtg
