sweep, but his attempt at conversion failed. McGee flipped an aerial to Payne
for the final score and this time the extra point was good.
The Raiders put up a magnificent battle but that lone point tells the story.
And the second out-of-state defeat went into the record book, but still thc
Greenvillians' Palmetto state card remained unblemished.
f Some wise-acre remarked after the Anderson game: "Shucks, Greenville
High doesn 't need a track team. "
'Phat sums up what happened in the Anderson affray as the Raiders ran
rough-shod over a slow and heavy Yellow Jacket team on Sirrinc stadium turf.
'l'he game was never in doubt, as McGee, Galloway, Payne, and Monteith Byers
all accounted for at least one touchdown. Every player on the squad, with the
exception of Bill Byers, who was injured, and the waterboys, saw action.
"Booty" Payne played but five minutes in the tilt, carried the ball five times,
and accounted for two six-pointers, besides gaining yardage on the other three
Frank Galloway, a freshlnan, also turned in a brilliant performance, tallying
twice-once on a wide end run and another time off tackle-as he displayed ex-
cellent broken-field running.
This triumph added the fourth straight Palmetto victory.
f On a cloudy afternoon in November, the Electrics rose to supreme heights
t.o completely smother a once-dangerous Spartanburg team before an over-flowing
crowd on Snyder field. It was one of the worst lickings ever handed a Spartan
outfit by a G. H. S. eleven.
'l'he Raiders performed in a truly superb style, playing probably the great-
est game of the season. Displaying a brand of spirit and fight that could not he
denied, the Speermen opened the scoring in the middle of the initial quarter.
Payne flipped a short pass to Byers for the touchdown.
A spectacular 72-yard dash gave the Raiders another six points in the
closing minutes of the second frame, with "Booty" Payne lugging thc oval
across the double stripes. The Electrics started the scoring again on the third
play of the last half. Payne shot a long aerial to Byers for the tally.
The Raiders unexpectedly counted again when llinn snatched a block punt
from the air and raced 45 yards to the goal. The Greenvillians were clearly the
superior as they out ran, outpasscd, and out-punted the Spartans. It was a
well-earned and clean-cut victory for the Speermen.
Here one of the toughest obstacles in the championship path was removed by
the victory-mad Speermen.
f A low mist hung over Sirrine stadium the night of November 11 when the
Red Raiders trotted out onto Sirrine stadium to gain revenge from Easley for
a beating a year previous. And nearly 10,000 fans, one of the largest to attend
a high school game in South Carolina history, roared and gasped, cheered and
sank dismayed, as the two teams battled on fairly even terms for three quarters.
As the final chapter was about to be written, the score stood 9 to 6 in Green-
ville's favor, but Raider fans were squirming in their seats as the Bricemen
fought frantically to gain a victory and repeat a state championship.”
