YELLOWJACKETS HELD TO SCORELESS TIE BY LOBOS
LONGVIEW - The Mineola High School Yellowjackets journeyed last Friday to the Gregg county capital where they engaged and held the Longview Loboes to a scoreless tie.

While neither goal was ever in danger, the Yellowjackets upset the dope bucket and completely outplayed the Loboes making nine first downs to one for their opponents.

The Yellow Jackets received the kickoff and the Loboes were forced to use all their defensive strength at the beginning of the game to stop the Mineral drive. Mineola's backfield was slowed down considerably due to the sandy field. Despite the heavy sand, the Yellowjacket ball toters ripped off nice gains through the Longview line where holes were made by Mineola's forward wall.

In the third quarter when the Yellowjackets received a 15 yard penalty, placing the ball on their own 22 yards, in possession of Longview, it was then that the Loboes made two stabs at the line, attempting a forward pass which was incomplete and on the fourth down made a try for a field goal which went wild, after Mills was rushed by Wisner.

From this point the Yellowjackets took the ball and again advanced it to mid-field where they were forced to kick after another costly penalty on the third down. During the remaining minutes of the fourth quarter, both teams played defensive ball with most of the playing in mid-field.

The Yellowjackets showed much improved since the game with Mount Pleasant. Longview received most of the breaks but the Loboes lacked the necessary punch. Their defense was good, but the Yellowjackets completely smothered their offense.

In picking stars for the Yellowjacket crew honors must got to the entire line, with Cecil Wisner standing out, for this young lad was in every play, while Big Bill Taylor, Quitman's contribution to Mineola, was almost unstoppable and gained consistently with three or four tacklers hanging on. Captain Blalock, Moody and Wichita each played a nice game, they showed that defense in backing up the line which is seldom seen in high school.

The Mineola High School Pep Squad, 56 strong, uniformed, cheered the Yellowjackets through the four quarter. Not once did they let up. Their snappy drill between halves together with their support of the Yellowjackets received praise from many Longview fans.

Coach Copass deserves much credit for taking a green bunch of boys and whipping them into a fighting machine like the one that went against Longview Friday. While the Yellowjackets did not win, it certainly was a moral victory to hold the Loboes to a scoreless tie, when Longview had expected to win the game by three touchdowns.

The reception and hospitality extended to Mineola by Longview was most cordial.

Tomorrow (Friday) the Yellowjackets meet the Jacksonville crew on the local gridiron at 3:30. Be on hand to cheer on the boys who are fighting for you.
