ln playing a Thanksgiving Day post season game at Pomona. which
ended the high school football career for several. the Lions were victorious.
Compton as usual marched the ball directly down the field in the opening
minutes and had the ball on the one foot line when a fifteen yard penalty was
inflicted. In two downs they were unable to score.
The second quarter opened with Compton in possession of the ball on
their own twenty yard line and again thev started a drive which resulted in the
lone score of the game. The Lions threatened several times but a fumble was

The Pomona Cards fought desperately to score and in the last few minutes
made the Lions look bad against passes but their efforts were fruitless.
