Spiers, on the first play, ran wide to his right, found .halfback Harvey Lee Hill streaking tffciwn the sideline and hit him at <Se 10 wllh a bullet-like pass. Hill was knocked out of bounds as soon as he t'jcked In Ihe ball and It was a first down for the Seminoles. One scrimmage play netted Osceola five yards and fullback Shaneyfelt on the second crack at the line bulled his way Into the end /one. Spiers passed to Hill for Ihe extra point. Wilh the score reading 25-0 the befuddled Wildcats again tried to move. Taking the kickofl on the five they managed lo get lo Ihe 35 where a tumble which was recovered by Oseeola drowned their hopes. The firecl-up Seminoles again were touchdown bound. Shaneyfelt found a big hole at tackle, and went to the 20. Hill raced around end to score but E 15 yard * holding penalty nullified the play. Spiers, back to pass again, couldn't find a receiver to his liking, elecled to run and was stopped at the nine. Then he hit end Terry In the end zone for the Semlnoles Mxth marker.

The Wildcats revived briefly at the opening of the third period but again hit bad luck and a back fumbled on. the Osceola 47.

Three plays later quarterback Melvin (Greasy) Haskett sneaked over from Ihe one yarc line. Johnny Harrison cut over tackle for the extra point and that was all of the scoring. The remainder of the game was silent between the two 20 yard lines except on two occasions. Both team? got inside the 20 once each In th' third quarter but were held.
