in-..............l.....,-,, November 11, is always the day of great excitement around Adams. This was thewtraditional, homecoming game between Adams and1 eRoy, which always turns out to be a royal battle, no matter what the odds are. The night before the game, there was a pep fest and fire works to instill in the boys the school spirit. The day before the game dawned clear and bright. Right before, a large homecoming parade was organized, which paraded through the main section of town and beck to'the school to await the opening whistle. Adams kicked off to LeRoy. They held them for downs before receiving the ball. Then they march- ed to the LeRoy eight-yard line where they were stopped cold. The second and third quarters were played very evenly. About midway in the fourth quarter, Sorflaten faded back to the 44 y line and threw a pass to Koloen, who fought his way from the ten to the two-yard line before being downed on an off-tackle play. Adams was stopped for no gain. Then NB1gn B111 Wiste drove through a mass of humanity for the one and only touchdown of the game. On a quarterback sneak, Vernon Sorflaten knifed his way through for the extra point. The game ended a few minutes later This game made up for the previous losses of the season. The boys this year played good, clean, ball in their usual fighting style.
