Not since that whistle filled night against Beaumont's Royal Purple back in '55 have the Brazosport Exporters been to the Tri- City' section of Texas for a football game. However, Harden Cooper paraTes his Exporters into Beauittont this Friday to engage "the South Park Greenies in a closing non-district game of ITS 1959 campaign. Klckoff time for the contes' will be at 7:30 p.m. from the South' Park High School Sta^ dium. In '55, the Shippers and Beaumont High squared off in a real fistic brawl in the clos- ng minutes and it took the 'Star Spangled Banner" to quell the heated scrap. Both fans and players joined In on that toe-to-toe bout and the game was halted with 3:30 left to play and Beaumont awarded the victory. The Royal Purple, who drew close to 150 yards in penalties that night, were leading, 32-14, at the time of the fight. The game was a District 12-AAAA affair. That was the last year for Beaumont in the league race as they went into 11-AAAA, the loop they are now In, and Brazosport has not been back to BeaumonK However, Friday's game will re-kindle an old series with the Greenies, a team the Exporters used to play wnen Siazosport was in AAA circles. The last time the Ships and Greenies faced each other was in 1953 and the Exporters cnme out on top. For the Friday CUte with winless Brazosport, the Gre- enies will throw their wing-T offensive formation at the Exporters. This pattern, which is like that used by LSU, will hinge on speed, passes and trap plays. Exporter scouts report tha the Greenies line to throw the screen pass, a play they hav called five times in their two 7, last week< The hosting Greenies'are rated a favorite over Brafcospbrt, who have lost to Jesse Jones, 23-14, and Lufkln, 28-6'. Wes Broussard, 220, Wally Phythianj 180, Bryan Slaone, 200, Billy Wilklns, 175, and Wayne Townsend, 180,.are the heart of the South '. Park line. Wilbert .Bragg, 171, yrtll man the quarterback spot, while hard running Arnold Ibeck, a clutch performer, is at fullback. A pair of speedy halfbacks and deadly pass catchers In Richard Prejean and Winston Goodrich give the Greenies lots of balance and speed. and ftonnik Beafdoit, 146, are able cass I receivers and blockers.
