Amarillo, also using all of her football tactics, scored three tallies. In the last quarter both teams suc- ceeded in crossing each otheris goal line, which made the score 26-21 in Abileneis favor. Every class of football was seen in the game-punting, passing, running ends, fake plays, line smashes, and straight football, in all of which the Eagles satisfactorily demonstrated their proficiency. The Friday following the Amarillo game, the Eagles met the Cleburne Yellow- jackets, also contestants for state honors. A determined line of Eagles went into the game and not only held the Yellowjackets but carried the ball across the line for three tallies. Cleburne by means of a double pass made their only score of the game. The Yellowjackets had the weight, but they could do nothing against the indomitable spirit of the Eagles. The end of the game found both sides still fighting hard but Abilene holding the long end of a 20-6 score. By defeating Cleburne, the Eagles won the right to play Port Arthur for the State Championship. The Yellowjackets came to Abilene with full determination to win, but they could not withstand this powerful West Texas team who repeatedly drove down the field and ran around ends until a total of 37 points had been added to their score. Realizing the value of this final game, the Eagles put all they had into it, which resulted in the highest score ever made in a championship game. Thus ended the glorious 1928 football season, with the Eagles the proud possessors of the State Championship title. One Hundred Ten ' WEN! Q? Q 1 5' I CH 5690
