ABILENE 34-LAMESA O
Scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter and one each in the remaining
periods, the Abilene Eagles opened their District SAA football offensive at Eagle
Stadium with a 34 to U victory over the Lamesa Golden Tornadoes. Halfback
Shields scored first on a plunge after two power plays. Burditt, fullback, dived for
the second tally, and shifty Spires cut loose for the third touchdown. Bennett,
playing at center for the Eagles, intercepted a pass to run over the double stripe.
The final counter came on a long pass from l-lowell to Bradshaw. Lamesa threat-
ened twice in the last half, but the Tornadoes were stopped inside the lO-yard
line both times. All except the last of the Eagle conversions were good.
ABILEN E O-ODESSA 19
Playing on a muddy field with a wet ball in a driving rain, the Abilene Eagles
suffered their first District 3AA defeat at the hands of the Odessa Bronchos l9-O.
This was a sudden let-down after running all over Lamesa in the game of the
week before. But the Warbirds' morale, both in victory and defeat, was kept to a
high degree by a twelfth man in the stands, numbering about two hundred
staunch Eagle supporters.
Near the end of the season, Odessa was found to have an ineligible player
and was forced to forfeit its victories, thus giving the Eagles the game.”
