and were still very much in the race
for the state championship. Fowler

during seven of the innings. Gilliam
and Braxton led in the Elon attack.

Joyner, one of Wake Forest’s star
mound artists. Harrington made a
bobble in the first inning, but settled
down after that and handled five
chances in excellent shape.'
The Elon boys started the scoring in
the first inning. Harrington led off with
a hit over third base. Slaughter sacri

first, Harrington being allowed to score.
Sims drew a walk, filling the bases.
Shepherd hit to center to score Gilliam.
Walker and Hoyle made outs in succes
