The pigskin was More than resistant and the inability of the bulldog offence to move the football Cost Trinity a 20-0 loss to unbeaten Salisbury saturday night. Despite the Point spread the Day s Layoff from Friday s rainout left both offences dormant when game time rolled around Salisbury fumbled and Trinity stumbled in the All defensive show a your defense played one Heck of a Trinity coach Larry Wall said afterwards a they gave us the Ball in great Field position but offensively we never moved the Ball All night we can twin if we can t except for a Quick first Quarter touchdown. Salisbury was having equal difficulty finding the end zone in the first half Hornet Mike Chalk picked off a Trinity pass at his own 12-Yard line and returned it to the 48 to set up the first score. It took Salisbury eight West s Myers is live voodoo doll spotlight turns on Unsung hero by Sarah sue Ingram Enterprise sports writer Donnie Myers is not a starter on the West Davidson football team in fact he rarely gets to play. Friday night was no exception for the 6-foot, 235-Pound tackle he saw very limited action he did not have any Fumble recoveries or interceptions nor did he throw Andre prom Page 4c the wind out of the team a it is hard to Tell How much damage the loss did Quot he Points out. But it certainly did t help we expected to win the game and did t.

But As Brown is Quick to Point out of you let up against teams like Trinity Concord and Kannapolis they will beat heading Down the stretch Thomasville seems to have everything under control but Only time and what the scoreboard reads for the next five weeks will Tell key blocks to Spring runners Loose for touchdowns yet. Myers was the first player singled out by West head coach Joe Young after the dragons whipped Randleman 27-0 Friday night. The contribution of the husky Junior had come earlier in the week what he had done was impersonate a Randleman player during practice sessions and that in itself was no enviable Job a we made him John said Young showing a tremendous respect for the blocking of the Randleman fullback the real Fricks a Burly 6-4 234-Pounder for the tigers has paved the Way for the running of halfback Timmy Auman All season Long therefore Young Felt the key to stopping Randleman s Strong Rushing attack was getting Fricks out of the Way to get to Auman to accomplish that goal the West coach knighted Myers As his own a John Frick the mild manner Myers then changed personalities a la or Jekyll or. Hyde to become a Tough running fullback and while he acted out the role Only during practice that was More than enough. A we made him Fricks and beat him to death All week a Young said a this legs Are just Black and Blue he gave too per cent for the team a Myers saw it a Little differently. Quot it was the first time i was somebody else and i Hope it s the Myers grinned a i Don t mind doing anything that will help the team but it was Kinda rough they just kept hitting me Over and Over and i d never done anything like that before. A it was fun though before i got Hurt i d much rather play tackle so i won t get beat up so much a being a live voodoo doll did t do much for Myers legs but it certainly earned him the respect of the coaches and apparently inspired the Green dragon defense which held Randleman to Only 134 Yards on the ground the Victory gives West a 3 prep schedule thursdays games Ledford at w Davidson of Central at Dudley Friday s games Ragsdale at he Andrews Concord at Thomasville Allen Jay at e.
