Through Entire Game;
Both Teams Made Long
The Waynesville Mountaineers
rolled over the Canton Black Bears
on the local field last Friday night
by a score of 33 to 20. An estimat
ed attendance of 3,000 were on
hand for the annual Haywood
county gridiron classic.
Waynesville and Canton have
been football rivals for many years
and have been meeting each other
on the gridiron since football was
introduced in this county, and all
the games draw overflowing at
tendance to see two teams located
only twelve miles apart battle for
the county championship.
The Mountaineers got off to a
good start in the opening period of
the game, starting their scoring

locals received the ball Henry made

an exchange of punts, Waynes
ville took over on Canton's 36 and
in two plays reached paydirt for
the second time. Henry carried to
the 15 where Yount carried the
remaining distance. The try for
the extra point was no good.
Waynesville again scored in the
second period on a drive from their
own 35, with Henry carrying the
mail to the Canton 19 and Yount
coming through for the remainder
of the yardage to score. A pass
from Henry to Jackson netted the

the line to score.
It seemed that the Mountaineers
could not let the visitors make a
score unless they came back in
retaliation. Taking the ball on the
kick-off on their own 32, Way
nesville advanced to the 42
where they began moving down

and placing the ball on the Canton

to Yount for the extra point. This
all took place in the early minutes
of the last period.

The record for the largest num
ber of points scored in a single
game between these two Haywood
teams was shattered whan the

Much comment was made as to
the condition of the two teams,

The attendance far exceeded the
expected crowd and some of the
spectators had to stand to watch
the game. It was pleasing to see
the friendly rivalry of the two
towns confined only to bickering at
each other and no physical clashes.

The Waynesville Mountaineers
will journey to Hendersonville this
Friday afternoon to meet the Bear
cats in their annual clash.
The locals will go undefeated
to meet their next closest rivals
to Canton, and a game that always
is hard fought.
Hendersonville is not in the con
ference this year due to a little
controversy, several years ago.
(They have always classed the
Mountaineers as one of their clos
est rivals and are all set to give
the locals a hard game.
