Deer hunting is in full swing
By the time you read this, deer
season will be in full swing and it
looks as though the weather is going
to be pretty good all week. Let's all
try and remember that we owe the
priviledge to hunt to the landowners
that allow us to hunt on their land.
Treat the landowner right and he'll
return the favor.
There are more hunters than ever
and less land to hunt on. This is going
to create some problems but, if we all
think before we act we will avoid a lot
The first three days of duck season
were, as a whole, mediocre at best;
but some of the boys did all right.
There weren't many big ducks
taken but the wood ducks were
around in pretty good numbers.
There wasn't any water in the
swamps, so if you found some water
near some feed you were in business.
Hopefully the conditions will get
better before Thanksgiving. The
National Weather Service says the
winter will be colder and stormier
than the last winter so things might
pick up for us.
Let me remind you that on
November 3, the Perquimans County
Chapter of Ducks Unlimited will be
having their annual banquet. The
banquet will be held down at Anglers
Cove Restaurant and, as in the past,
Henry Carney will put on a seafood
buffet that you won't soon forget.
No other area chapter can match
the dinner that is served. No other
area chapter can match our auction
or the quality of the evening as a
whole. That's why the tickets will be
limited to 150 this year.
We also have the lowest price in the
area, still $25.00. Tickets will be sold
on a first come first served basis.
When they're gone, that's it. Tickets
will be available from all committee
Pirates defeat Camden
By Ken Castelloe
The Perquimans Pirates won their
first conference game by defeating
the Camden Bruins 20-0 last Friday
night. Fullback Richard Thach and
Alton James led the Pirates with a
balanced ground attack.
Neither team could move the ball
with much success in the first
quarter of action. The Pirates
recieved the opening kickoff and got
a break when Thach was knocked
down while attemping a punt. The
Bruins were penalized 15 yards and
the Pirates had the ball on the Bruin
40-yard line. The Bruins were then
penalized two plays later for clip
ping, putting the ball on the 19-yard
line. The Pirates went to the air with
Teton Reid attempting three passes
that fell incomplete and the Bruin
offense took over.
Early in the second quarter the
Pirate defense recovered a fumble on
the Bruin 36-yard line and seven
plays later Thach scored from two
yards out making the score 7-0 after
the extra point.
The Bruins threatened in the early
going of the second half, marching
down the field to the Pirate 26-yard
line before the drive stalled. The
Pirate offense then went back into
action with a third down pass to Roy
Hall for a gain of 42 yards, giving the
Pirates a first-and-ten on the Bruin
29-yard line. The offense proceeded
to move to the five-yard line before
turning the ball over to the Bruins.
The Pirates took over again with
2:07 remaining in the third quarter
on the Camden twenty-yard line with
Thach scoring on a 5-yard run. Teton
Reid scored the final touchdown on a
one-yard run with 2:06 left in the
game. After the two-point conversion
failed, the final score was 20-0.
Richard Thach gained 82 yards on
14 carries while Alton James had 69
yards on 21 carries. QB Reid com
pleted 8 passes for 38 yards in the air.
Head Coach Pat Morgan com
mented that the Pirates, "played
with a little more intensity than in
previous games", gaining 216 yards
The Pirates will be action this week
at Memorial Field against the con
ference leader, Manteo Redskins.
Game time will be 8 p.m.
