McMurry 21

Brownwood: Sept. 20, A tenacious
McMurry defense stopped
Howard Payne cold as the Indians
kayoed the Yellow Jackets 21-8.
McMurry scored early in the first
two periods to take a half-time
14-0 lead, and then tallied on an
electrifying 63 yard pass early in
the second half. In the rough battle
of rivals, the outcome was never in
doubt after the first quarter. The
difference in the game was the
smashing line runs by George
Bridges, Ernie Davis, Jim Boyd and
tiny Gerald Combs. Howard Payne
managed its only score with 1:15
left in game. It was against the
Indians third unit.
