Harlem ties Morgan County
The Harlem Bulldogs tied the Morgan County Bulldogs last Friday with a score of 7-7.
Harlem kicked off the game and made their opposing Bulldogs stop at their own 30-yard line, which enabled Harlem's Jimmie Lewis to take over to score a touchdown, with the extra point kicked by Doug McLeod.
Harlem managed to keep the lead until the last three minutes of the game, in which a bad snap on an attempted punt allowed Morgan County to have the ball on the Harlem 10-yard line. Shortly after, Morgan County scored, tying the game 7-7.
Halfback Ray Lewis led Harlem in the rushing department with 44 yards in the 17 attempts, while quarterback Jimmie Lewis completed 14 out of 29 passes, totalling 148 yards. Leading receivers Johnny Fullbright and Guy Fleming had five receptions each, and defensive standouts were Hankie Morris and Phil Jockel with six tackles each and Richard Ponthress and Guy Fleming with five each.
