To Succeed Wade Visitors Stop Craig and Score First Win Here in Many Grid Battles. The best team won Friday afternoon when (lie Golden Hurricinr •of Jonesboro high school and fir- Chickasaws of Mlythcvllle liigli clashed al Haley Field In a terrific.' struggle, the Hurricane ending up on the top end of a H to " star?. With every man of Coach Clarence Gels' eleven displaying a ' nifty brand of football the Hurricane breezed through for Its flrei victory on the Blytheville gridiron within the memory ol the past ten years. The Hurricane swirled an* swept (o an outstanding lend and although it simmered to a mire calm at- ihe class of the second - quarter and again in the last few minutes of the. game the visitor.- always appeared to have the odae To a midget little fullback. Smith, 'goes the credit'for the most brilliant run of the day and the first touchdown of the game—a blow that, apparently broke the morale of Uie Blythevlllc squad for several precious minutes. Smith rerlcrl off a 60 yard run on the first piny of the game for the initial touchdown. „ The Jonesboro squad entered the game primed to slop Pete Craig. the all-state fullback of the locals, and they successfully smothered the big Chick ace on almost every play that he carried Hie ball. Craig counted the lone Chick touchdown by smashing over from the one foot line. The most outstanding player on the field yesterday was \V~ Cov- Ington, right end of the Hurricane. Covington smeared Blythevlllo plays with regularity all afternoon as t\ie Chickasaws interference failed to bother the husky wingman of. the visitors. If there was ap exhibition of defensive ability worthy of all state "mention on the field yesterday it should go (o CDV-. snglon. (His (companion wingtnan. Drchcr ,ulso put up n goo;l gams. especially on the offense and snagged a pass from Panneck for the visitors' second touchdown. Whistle Slops Chicks After the Hurricane swept, to r. touchdown-on the first play of the game via the flying feet of Smith, the game assumed the state of a ding-dong tattle with each team able to, gain In spurts but lacking the necessary punch for a touchdown. The Chicks, spurred on by o 35 yard run by Tom Short, who easily proved the bpst Blytheville ([round gainer of the day, made several gains but they were nullified by the Hurricane attack. The Chickasaws were encamped on the Hurricane's 14 yard line with a first down when the first hnlf ended. The second halt opened with the Chiekasaws counting a first down but their attack bogged down and Jonesboro promptly took- the offense and evened with advance with a first down. The tall moved up Into Blytheville territory and Panneck unleashed a pass on third down that Dreher caught nicely and galloped unmolested lor n total gain of 35 yards and another Jor.esboro touchdown. A'sneak linr plunge accounted for the extra point and Jonesboro led 14 to 0.
