Vtagged Game Thus
Far This Season
Though playing their most ragged
game thus far this season and faced
with rather weak opposition, Coach
Bill Billings’ Edenton Aces posted a
one-sided victory over Spring Hope on

threats, reaching no nearer than the
25-yard line. The Aces made 14 first
downs to the visitors’ 5.
Coach Billings used practically all
of the boys on his squad during the
game, some of whom made a credit

especially good and displayed the mak
ings of an outstanding quarterback.
The Aces scored their first touch
down on the second play of the game
when Spring Hope kicked to start
play and the ball was returned to the
Edenton 14. On the first play Jimmy
Harrison raced 56 yards, putting the
ball on the Spring Hope 30 and on
the next play Stuart Holland rammed
through the line to score.
Near the end of the quarter the
Aces again scored when Sid Campen
recovered a Spring Hope fumble on
the visitors’ 2-yard line. Holland grain
ed a yard and Harrison crashed
through for the touchdown. Both at
tempts for the extra point failed.
With both teams fumbling early in
the second quarter and an exchange of
punts the Aces got possession of the
ball late in the quarter when Harri
son intercepted a pass and raced to
the Spring Hope 33. Stilley picked
up a first down to the 21, from where
