Greensboro Holds Asheville Down Un
til the Last Part of the
Greensboro Hi lost the second foot
ball game of tbe season when on Oc
tober 2nd they met Asheville Hi at
Asheville. The game (if reports from
Asheville are true) was the hardest
fought high school game ever played
on McCormick field.
The first quarter started with Ashe
ville receiving the kick off and after
unsuccessful attempts to gain through
the Greensboro line kicking to Greens
boro. On getting the ball the Purple
Whirlwind started into action but
found that the Maroon team had a
strong team regardless of weight and
that it was nearly impossible to gain
through that line. Greensboro after
several attempts to break the defense
kicked. The first quarter ended with
both teams having given a hard fight
but neither being able to break through
the other consistently.
The second quarter started with a
rush and the Greensboro backfield
plunged through the Maroon line for
gain after gain. Burgess then insti
tuted an aerial attack and this did not
seem so successful although he com
pleted several passes there was usually
a Maroon man ready to break the play.
Fumbles were numerous by both teams
all throiTgli the quarter and the first
half ended without a score. Asheville
did not make a first down in the first
The third quarter the Maroon team
put up a fight that the Greensboro
team with their worn players found
hard to withstand and the ball shifted
from one end of the field to the other,
at one time Greensboro had the ball on
Asheville’s 15 yard line but were un
able to take it over.

of 9 to 0.
NOT MANY SPECTATORS
The “Purple Whirlwind” pried off
the lid of the 1926 grid season Friday,
October 24, when they got away to a
flying start by downing the Reidsville
High out 9 to 0. The game was played
in what was more like baseball rather
than football weather and as a result
only a handful of fans gathered at
Mr. Cone’s lot to witness the fray.
Neither squad was able to break into
the scoring column until the third
quarter and it was then that the scor
ing got under way when “Chuck” Bur
gess, field general of the Greensboro
crew, booted the ball over the cross
bars for three counters. The final
scoring came in the last quarter, when
a couple of passes to Grubbs, substi
tuting for Henderson at end, netted a
touchdown. Burgess failed to add the
The game was somewhat marred by
the usual early football sins, namely a
number of fumbles and the failure to
get off punts of any great length.
However, after a little more practice

Tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 the

and they have won three and lost
none. Winston has an outstanding
team this year with five men from last
year’s varsity team and several other
letter men. The five varsity men are
Capt. Plaster, Bates, Blackwood, Pe

Greensboro has encountered two
teams and made a good showing both
times, defeating Reidsville and losing
to Asheville by a 7-0 score. The result
might haAm been different at AsheA’ille

The “Point System” of the Girls’
Athletic Association of North Carolina
High Schools has been completely re
vised, making the requirements for re-
Avards more difficult. The neAV system
of Avinning points A\dll not go into effect
until January 1, 1927. Letters and
monograms Avill be aAAmrded under the
old system until then.
Those girls interested in Avinning
athletic honors should familiarize
themselves with the revised system,
Avhich Avill be published in sections in
High Life. There are ten groups.
Group I folloAvs:

This means accepting gracefully all de
cisions made by coaches or references.
(b) . A season’s score represents
AA'ork done on a squad for a definite
period of time. Seasons are usually of
three months duration, some sports,
hOAvever, last through a shorter period
of time, therefore, the maximum
amount of points, 2o, should only be
given Avhen a team has had at least 30
practices. When seasons are short and
only 15 practices are had, points should
be cut to 10. In like manner other
practices may be AA-orked out.
(c) . When a girl has attended at
least 90 percent of practices for any
sport, an additional fiA^e points may be
added to 20 points.

tAA’o seasons, i. e. tennis in Fall and
Spring. Points may be aAvarded for
both seasons. No year’s score may be

3. Seventy-five points shall be the
maximum amount of points a partici
pant may Avin in any one sport during

Paul Wimbish, manager of afore

knoAVS her berries Avhen it comes to
entertaining visiting teams.
“The G. H. S. team plays a strong
hard game of football.” says the
Asheville coach “but their biggest
draAvback is lack of training.”
So boys let’s leaA^e off the candy,
smoking and late dates, Ave’ve got to
get in good condition and AAmrk hard
to dOAvn the rest of the teams Ave play.
Thus saith “Bobby” Wunsch,
“Greensboro fought a good fight! I
think it Avas the most excitin
school game I’ve ever seen.”
Say there, you Juniors, hoAV about
getting out and supporting your hockey
team. You are not taking a rest cure,
are you? Mary Jane Wharton and
Rose GoodAA'in have done excellent
Avork in getting the Sophmores and
Seniors out. According to Miss Causey
thev’re the stuff as captains.
Girls, you are not as dumb as your
boy friends think you are. There is a
girls’ football team in loAA'a. Your time
Theron BroAvn, late one of the
prides of our squad of pigskin hooters
is the Bonemenders’ latest recruit.
But all kidding aside, our Theron is a
sure enough honest to goodness heroe.
That young felloAA^ played the last
quarter of the Asheville game Avith his
nose and finger broken.

The Purple WhirlAvind scrubs de
feated the Elon second squad in a
hard game Avith a 7 to 6 victory in a
game characterized by a real fight.
Avhich lasted until the last Avhistle.
Both teams Avere in good form, Elon
forcing G. H. S. to Avard off defeat
at the very outset. Whiteheart re
ceived a pass from the hands of H.
Ogburn and be put the ball across the
line tor six markers. The extra point
Avas chalked up by H. Ogburn Avhen
he booted the ball across the cross
bar. Crutchfield carried the ball
across the goal for Eloii’s only score
of the afternoon’s fray.
