Coach Max Campbell used two sets
,of backfield for the Indians in an ef
fort to discover a scoring combina
tion, neither of which seemingly de
veloped the spark needed to rack up
ouchdowns. The play on the part
of the Indians' line showed some im
provement over the opening game,
and additional improvement is ex
pected in both the line and backfield
for the game this week when Edenton
comes to Hertford to renew grid riv
alry with the Indians.
1 The game with Edenton was moved
'up to Thursday night and played on
Memorial Field. Perquimans and
Edenton are about evenly matched,
judging from the contests each school
had with Columbia. The Wildcats
downed Perquimans 6-0 and then on
last Friday defeated Edenton by a
12-6 score. Edenton boasts a big line
and a smooth working backfield. The
Aces held Greenville to a 13-i s'ore.
When the Indians and Aces played
it was the -1st game between the
two schools, with Perquimans win
ding 11 victories to Edenton 's 7 and
,three games ending in a tie. An in
teresting sidelight on the series is
that during the first eight games
played Edenton won only one, then
during the next eight games Per
quimans won only one. In the last
seven games Edenton has won only
one and the Indians will be playing
