The Golden Eagles with a much more exper- ienced team were able to dominate the first half, but they had more difficulty moving the ball in the sec- ond half. It wasn ' t until late in the third quarter that the Lions found a workable com- bination in Ken Lawrence and Max Burleson and managed to push across their lone touchdown. Go, man, go! Ain ' t nobody on my side? FSC 19 MURRAY STATE 18 In their second game the Lions edged the Thorough- breds of Murray State in a game that was a real thriller. The difference in this ex- citing game was Bill God- sey ' s point after touchdown. The Lions overcame a six- point half-time deficit by scoring twice in the final period. The whole team played an excellent game in what could only be called a team victory. 90 Now who ' s on top? AUSTIN PEAY 19 FSC 6 The Lions suffered their second loss of the season at the hands of the Austin Peay Governors. The Lions, in a game in which punts played a big part, scored their only touchdown on a fumbled punt. The punt was fumbled on the two-yard line and rolled into the end zone where Tom Cotton fell on it for the touchdown. Come to papa. ARKANSAS STATE 39 FSC 13 The Lions received their worst defeat since 1949 at the hands of the Arkansas State Indians. The Indians, leading only 14-0 at the half, scored four touchdowns in the second half. Lion touch- downs were scored by Bill Flurry and Ken Lawrence. Until the game ' s won, the coach just ain ' t him Self ! ! FSC 21 LIVINGSTON 18 The Lions staged a comeback against the Livingston State Tigers to win their second ball game of the season. The Tigers led 18-7 at the half, but the Lions came back in the second half like a new ball club to score twice more. Sander- son scored once for the Lions and Burleson scored twice. The extra points were kicked by Godsey. (Action shot of game unavailable) Ooooofff!!! FSC 21 EAST TENNESSEE 7 The Lions won their second game in a row by spoiling the Homecoming for the East Ten- nessee State Buccaneers. The game was an offensive battle throughout the first three quarters with neither team able to score. The Buccaneers scored first early in the fourth quarter, but the Lions were not to be denied. Florence touch- downs were scored by Sanderson, Pickens, and Lawrence. All three PATs were kicked by Godsey. 92 FLORENCE STATE 27 — TROY 6 HOMECOMING ' 56 In the first afternoon game ever played here, the Lions pleased a large Homecoming crowd by defeating the Troy State Red Wave. The Lions took command of the game in the first quarter on touchdowns scored by Lawrence and Elmore. The score at the half was 14-0. The Trojans scored their only touchdown of the game early in the third quarter. Holiday and Redwine scored the other two Lion touchdowns in the final quarter. " Hurry and git ' im! ! ! Really rollin ' along! FLORENCE STATE 27 — JACKSONVILLE STATE 14 The Lions made it five straight wins in as many years over the Jacksonville State Gamecocks. They also clinched the unofficial Alabama small college championship. In winning their fourth straight game this season the Lions played one of their best games thus far. Jack Redwine, the standout for the Lions, scored two touchdowns, passed for another, and set up a fourth. The other Lion touchdowns were scored by Holiday and Sanderson. Jacksonville scored once each in the second and fourth quarters. Hit and run ! ! 94 Luggin ' that pigskin FLORENCE STATE 61 — SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE 13 The Lions finished the season strong by slaughtering the Southeast Missouri State Indians. The Lions finished the season with a 6-3 record, winning their last five games. It is hard to pick a star in this game because the whole team stood out. The Lions had 354 yards rushing to 154 and 156 yards passing to 55 yards. Seven seniors played their last game for the Lions.
