I meant victory for the Sharks.
e Quincy started off on their scor-
- ing early in the game as they dom-
T inated the ball practically the whole
I first half, allowing the Sharks but
one first down during this period.
, After receiving the KO, Quincy
* drove to the Sharks 35-yard line
r where quarterback Dover scam-
3 pered around end-to score. The ex-
tra point failed. The Sharks were
unable to muster any kind of offen-
sive drive and were forced to punt.
Quincy again started to drive but
were stopped short by superior
defensive play by Oliver Harper.
Jimmy Marlowe and Wayne Taylor.
The Sharks kept their backs to the
wall most of the time during the
first half by some fine punting by
the Quincy kicker.
Quincy's second TD came early
in the second quarter as halfback
Maynard .scored on a seven-yard
dash through the middle. The extra
point was good and Quincy had
a 13-0 lead. At this point the Sharks
closed the doors on the rampaging
Tigers and Walter. Wilder put new
life itno his team with a sparkling
48 yard- dash that ended up on the
Quincy nine-yard line. Wilder tried
the same play again and scored.
Wayne Taylor supplied the extra
point to put the Sharks back into
the game, 13-7 at half time.
Quincy kicked oftf. to the Sharks
in the third quarter and Wilder
was going all' the way but was
tripped on the 45 yard line. The
Sharks fumbled on the-'next play

the inspired Shark :defense and
were forced to punt.' Wilder again
turned on the sp-'d and stepped off

point, Fullback Wayne Taylor star-
ted bucking the middle and scored
from the Quincy 9-yard line. Taylor-
was not to be denied this TD but he
missed the uprights with his all
important kick that ended the scor- P
ing for both teams.
In the final quarter, Ed Smith,
Taylor and Wilder combined for-
ces and doing some beautiful carry-
ing worked the ball up to the Quin-
cy 2-yard line where they were halt-
ed for downs. Quincy came back
and started to work on the tiring
Shark defense and worked the
ball into scoring pjoiti.n 'The
Sharks buckled down to hold the
Tigers who failed in a field goal
attempt as the game ended.
Wayne Taylor was outstanding r

SCHEDULE RELIGIOUS FILM
A religious film entitled "This
Way To Heaven" is to be shown at
the Highland View Methodist
Church Tuesday night, November
29, at 7:30, according to the church
pastor, Rev. Douglas Newsome.
The film story is that of the
Wheelers who came to be interest-
ed in Sunday School through their
young son's attendance and life-
changing decision. Because of the '
whole family's worship together in
Sunday School their home is chang-
ed from one of tension to one of
happiness and the way to heaven
by faith in Jesus Christ.
The film is in black and white,
sound and is one of the finest Gos-
pel Films Concordia Films, Inc.,
has produced. The picture is beau-
tifully made, the acting is superb,
and the message helpful.
The public is cordially invited.
There will be no admission charge.
