It electrified the autumn night with seven plays covering better than 20 Yards and then there was Curtis Long Kickoff return to warm the hearts of the slim crowd on a Cool evening. There was All this plus there were no penalties called. That a Correct and it May be a Long time before another High school game is played in which not a single penalty is stepped off against either team while the Reynolds offence did t have the most trouble in the world moving the bail. It was the Winston Salem defense that was most impressive. It held Central to six first Downs and a net of 74 Yards in total offence. Reynolds has a Tough football team make no mistake about that.

The Victory Celebration had very nearly been doused by a Strong West Davidson club before fumbles burned the dragons and allowed quarterback Mark Routh to Lead Randleman to a 15-14 Central Carolina conference win. The contest featured at least five crucial plays including a disputed West touchdown and a fourth Quarter goal line stand by the dragons. It was in fact a crucial game pitting acc unbeaten. The Victory gave the tigers sole Possession of the lop conference spot and an excellent Chance at a playoff berth Quot we beat a Good football club tonight there a no doubt a said a grinning Charlie Gregory whose club now sports a 3-0 record. Quot we got some Breaks in the second half but our boys never quit. It was a great comeback it beats any comeback we be Ever had the tigers were Down 14-0 at the half following two second Quarter West scores. Randleman drove 96 Yards for its first touchdown largely on the efforts of quarterback Routh. The Tiger senior turned a busted play into a 27-Yard run to the dragon 19, then hit Willie Mcdonald with a touchdown pass on the next play. His extra Point pass to Kenny Laughlin was Good to Cut the West Edge to 14-8. Then came a wild fourth period. The tigers seemed ready to take charge when they drove from their own 38 to the dragon six Inch line where they had first and goal. Two dives got nowhere and a fumbled Handoff pushed Randleman Back to the four where Routh a pass attempt was batted Down. If West Felt it had the game there the dragons were mistaken. Three plays after the excellent goal line stand Lenny Wegwart took the Ball around left end and fumbled with tigers Carl Davis and Danny Stout falling on the bail. It took Randleman just one play to score from there. David Hayes scooped up a Routh pass from his Knees and streaked 20 Yards into the end zone to tie the game. Mike Davis a kick put the tigers ahead to stay. West did make a Strong attempt to come Back. A Flea Flicker pass on third Down went from Mike Parks to Jimbo easter who then pitched out to Wegwart. Only a Strong defensive Effort by Laughlin nailed the West speedster at the Tiger 33. Three plays later another dragon Fumble on an attempted repeat of the Flea Flicker pass killed the last scoring Chance for West. Quot we made some stupid penalties but All in All i Felt we outplayed them Quot commented a disappointed Joe Young Quot we defended them real Well i thought.

Alamance by Howard Hayes Enterprise staff writer Altamahaw Quot we executed the option and the pass much better Quot said coach Richard Kemp after Ragsdale a 41-20 Victory Over the warriors of Western Alamance. Quot we have to continue to improve on our offence Quot according to Kemp. Quot we prefer to get a Little better each week. Quot last year i feel we May have peaked too Early in the year and got to a Point in the season where we stopped improving Quot we Are trying to avoid that this year but that a not saying that we Are intentionally holding Back by any he added. Halfback Harold Odum had his Best night of the season Rushing for 133 Yards on 7 carries to Lead the tigers offence. He also scored two of the teams six ads. Kemp who is generally conservative when it comes to passing surprised Ragsdale fans when he had quarterback John Turner go to the air the first two plays in which his team had the Ball. Both passes went to end Bobby Mclean and the second was Good for a to with just Over three minutes gone in the contest. Turner connected on the three passes he attempted in the game and collected 58 Yards.
