The Purple and White grid- ders of Coach J. W. Seymour rolled to 13 first downs whereas the Blue and Gold, unofficially, totaled just two, both coming in the second half of play. The Seminoles finished Jhe season with a four win, seven loss record, a far cry from last year's district championship team, but the Seymour-men suffered some early season injuries which cost them a game or two and any chance for a repeat performance as league winners. The defeat for the Pirates was their eighth of the year, giving Gosncl) a record of 2-8-1. Standouts for the winners ere Fullback Larry Poyner and Halfback Barry Phillips. Poyner personally accounted for 116 yards on 16 carries while his running-mate racked up 114 yards on 19 attempts. Poynor provided, the highlight of the game when he carried the ball six successive times as the second half opened, culminating in a touchdown at 9:40 of the third quarter with a one-yard plunge. Poynor accounted for all 65 yards in the drive. The Seminoles had built up an 8-0 lead at the half, thanks again to Poyner and Phillips as well as Ronnie Jacobs, this 65-yard march ending with Phillips crashing over from the two.

The win, the "eight in ten games for the men of Coach David McCullar, came primarily because of the talented toe of Senior Billy Wayne Bussey as he booted two of three extra points, the conversion he missed after the first TD being only the fourth he has erred on all season. The Bulldogs scored first on a five-yard run by Junior Larry Stewart, a season-long standout, but Bussey failed on the kick.

Ford, a senior and a player who had suffered a concussion in the Luxora game two weeks ago, went for ten and a TD in the third quarter to close out the scoring, his final attempted conversion being blocked.
