GREEN WAVES PLAY BEST GAME YET! '
For those Dunn sports fans who saw Dunn play San
ford, it would be very hard for them to believe that the
Greenwaves could play a game superlative to that con
test. It is my opinion, however, that they played the best
game of this season Fridav night against Winston Salem's
Grav High at Eowman Grev Stadium. The Waves played
nip and tuck ball in the first half against the Greyhounds
and came out ahead at the half 14 to 13. But true to tra
dition the breaks couldn't last long for Dunn and they '
really were lousy in the second half!!
Dunn kicked to Grto start off the last half. The
first kick was called ba x on an offside penalty. The se
cond kick went very short, ih fact it was so short that
most of the Dunn defenders w r ere behind Cardwell, the
huge Greyhound end, when he caught the ball and he had
a host of blockers in front of him, so he trotted sixty some '
odd yards to score cn the opening kickoff. That wasn’t so
bad because on the basis of first half plav Dunn could
have easily overcome that slim margin. It was the breaks
that followed that cost Dunn the game. Gray kicked off
to Dunn and the Waves moved the ball up to the thirty.
On the first play from scrimage Bobby Godwin fumbled
the ball for Dunn and Gray recovered. From there it was
just a hop, skip and jump to another Greyhound score.
Still Dunn was not dismayed at being two TD’s behind. But
this isn't the end bv any means. On the next kick off E.
B. Dixon fumbled the ball on tire twenty five and again
Gray recovered. The Waves held Grav for three downs vir
tually without a gain but on the fourth down Gray com- <
pleted a pass down to four where Huff carried it over. By 1
this time evervone had just about counted Dunn (behind

strength Dunn could muster to stave off another Gray
attack.
1 Finally at the beginning of the fourth quarter Dunn's
attack began to click. Tailback Daley Goff passed to Don
ald Johnson in the flat and Don raced fifty five yards to
score only to have it called back by an off-side penalty.
. Then Freshman Bobby Day Godwin took over gt Tail
back replacing injured Daley Goff. Godwin ripped off a
fourtv-five yard run took it over on the same play to score.!
The Waves had gained back one of the touchdowns but !
still no one gave them a chance cf winning. The Waves
struck back in the final 2 minutes on some fine passing by 1
Godwin and some great running by E: B. Dixon on the)
; Gray thirty five. Dixon took the ball there and half ran-i
' half fought his way to the goal line actually taking two!
Gray men over with him!! With only a few seconds left!
in the game Gray was running out the clock to keep the j
ball out of the hands of the desperate Greenwaves. On the,
last play of the game Tackle Jimmy Sills tore through the j
Greyhound line and snatched the ball out cf the quarter-1
back's hand, but the game had ended and Dunn didn't)
have a chance to move the ball. Gray scored Three touch
downs in the last half and so did Dunn only one of the ‘l
Greenwaves was called back. The thing that most amazed j
me about this club was that at no time in the ball game j
did Dunn count itself cut—even when the Waves were 3 !
touchdowns behind they were just as determined as when 1
they were ahead 14 to 13. Not for one moment did Dunn
let up during the entire game. The team played its super
lative best—and what more can you ask of a team but j
their best? ,|
I suppose that most people consider this an unsuc-1
cessful season because of the 1 win and 7 losses. Well, let's
take a look at those seven losses. Dunn was certainly not :
of the strongest teams in the conference this year. Dunn
lost to Washington and Washington is leading their con
ference. The Waves lost to Rockingham, Whiteville and
Sanford and these teams occupy first, second and third
place respectively in the AA conference race and one of j
these is almost certain to win the State Championship. ,

I but there are other things to c’onsider—for instance team

; beaten before they ever pot on the. field, but not so with
this years squad. This year’s team profited from their

j When the Greenwaves got beat this season they studied
1 their mistakes and then forgot the game. When they took
| the field the next week it was like starting the season ail
j over for them. They never let previous losses bother them
j nor did they pay any attention to pre-game predictions—
'as the last two games with Sanford and Gray plainly
I show. Because of this “never say die” spirit, in my book the |
j ’52 edition of the Greenwaves ranks as one of the topi
teams that ever wore the Green and White. These kids'
j have played some great footfall this season. They have j
| played to win—and have gotten some pretty tough breaks. !
! Remember that when you’re thinking about the win and

Three Freshmen did a very commendable job for Dunn
Friday night and I think they deserve a pat on the back.
Halfback Bobby Day Godwin was called on to fill in for
Daley Goff at the tailback position. He doesn’t have the
polish at tailback that Goff does but I think he did a pretty
good job. He ran forty yards down to the goal line and then 1
scored on the next play. Then near the end of the game he
passed to E. B. Dixon who carried, lor the final tally. Fresh
man Guard Ronnie Kimrhel played almost the entire game
in the place of Sherrill Goodman, who was injured early
in the game. Big Ronnie (lie tips the scales at a hefty 123
pounds) played the position like a veteran. Another I
Freshman Weldon Jones, who is known as “Deacon" Jones
to his team mates, turned in a great game at defensive,
guard. All three of these boys will see plenty of action with !
the 53 edition of the Greenwaves—and so we close the j
books on another year of High School Football. ' j
