Murphy Loses 1st
Game To Franklin
On Friday. September 10. the
Murphy football eleven lost to
franklin by a seore of 18 to 0.
Franklin won the toss, so they
received. Murphy got off a fair
Kick and stopped Franklin around
the forty. Neither side could get
deep in the other s territory until
late in the first quarter where
with a series of end sweeps Frank
lin brought the ball in a scoring
position. They scored but missed
the extra point to lead by a score
of six to nothing.
Then easily in the second quar
4cr Franklin again went around
1 .^pd to scoring territory where they
' scored again.
I Then came the half and Murphy
| came back refreshed. Something
must have happened during the
half because those boys stopped
Franklin dead in their tracks. This
quarter went by fast with Murphy
coming close to a scoring.
The fourth quarter was different
though Murphy held them for the
oiggest part of this quarter. In
the last minutes a Franklin back
intercepted a pass and ran across
the mid stripe before being down
ed. Then one of the Franklin
lack broke loose and brought the
ball to the two yard line. The
; Fulldogs held them three straight
times but on a line plunge Frank
lin got six points, the ball being
just oh the lihfe.
