Van Wills Point Here Nov. Injuries struck early for the 1955 Vandals as Sammy Stanger, 190 pound All-District fullback and signal caller, suffered a broken leg in a scrimmage against Troup and was lost for the year. Without Stanger and with several other men side lined at time with injuries, the Vandals were never able to hit the stride expected of them by many and wound up with their worst season since 1950. It was the first time in history that they had failed to win a game on their home field. The Vand als played close games with all of th e i r non-conference foes e x c e p t Waxahachie. 32 Afte r dropping opening encounters to Canton and Hawkins, the y came back to edge Pine Tree, 14- 1 3, and gain revenge for last year's stomping. They lost to the strong Henderson Lions, 19-7, and then tied Royse City, 7-7. Opening conference play, the Vandals caught a fired-up swarm of Athens Hornets and lost, 27-6. After the 40-O non-conference loss to Waxahachie. the Vand al s played one of their best games in edging Mineola for their first conference win, ZO- l3. Weldon Strickland scored twice and Evans once a g a in s t the Yellowjackets. In the ir traditional Homecoming game with Grand Saline, the Vandals took a short-lived lead on a sneak by Jimmy Hen- derson, but the Indians exploded for three touch- d owns within three minutes be for e the half and went on to win, 27-8. In the ir final conference game against Wills Point, the Vandals played inspired ball and led with less than four minutes to go. Strickland, Kenneth Evans, and Ronald Murphy scored for the Vandals. 1.
