SCORE 21 TO 9
Thirteen proved a lucky num
ber for our girls when they
played AVinston-Salem, Saturday
night, January 13, at the Y. M. C.
Greensboro gained an over
whelming victory from Winston,
the final score being 21 to 9.
The game was snappy from the
beginning and both teams went
in the game with high spirits.
During the first half the teams
seemed pretty well matched, and
the score was very close. At the
end of the half, the score stood 9
to 6 in favor of Greensboro. The
Greensboro girls came back on
the floor at the beginning of the
last half with new vigor and de
termination and immediately
pitched into Winston.
Elsie Fluharty was the star of
the game. She caged eight field
goals and two foul goals. Pete
Stinnett did good work at center ;
and the guarding and passing of
Helen Clapp and Viola Scurlock
was exceptionally fine. Miss
Lentz was the star for the oppos
The prospects for the year are
very good. The girls have made
an excellent start. They beat the
1920 champions, 25 to ll. Last
Friday night the teams journeyed
to Lexington where they took
the big end of a 27 to 12 score in
an exciting game.

BUFFALO EASY WINNER OVER
G.H.S. SECOND TEAM
The third game of the series
played on the local “Y” floor Fri
day night was between the Buffalo
High School team and the second
string men of Greensboro. The Buf
falo team soon proved to be the
superior quintette and had little
trouble in winning by the score
of 27 to 11. Although defeat con
stantly stared them in the face, the
Greensboro team showed pluck
and grit, Jackson and Turner
being the outstanding players. Fes-
mire starred for Buffalo and played
a good, consistent brand of ball.
The game was slow and lacked
thrills but was a comparatively
clean game, few fouls being commit
ted by either side.
The line-up was a s follows:
