Cleburne Game 1941

The Waco News-Tribune, Saturday edition, November 1, 1941:


Lions March 30 Yards for Touchdown To Get 7-0 Edge Over Stubborn Cleburne Crew

Ennis, Oct. 31(Spl)With only 40-seconds remaining in what had been a scoreless game, the Ennis Lions marched 30 yards on four plays to beat a stubborn Cleburne Yellow Jacket eleven by a score of 7-0 here Friday night.

Mock passed to Billy Pool who took the ball on a dead run and was chased out of bounds on the Cleburne 9-yard line. The Lions ran the same play three consecutive times without going to the huddle and Mock carried over on the third down from the one-yard line. After the kick for extra point, the game was over.

The Lions had shown a decided edge in the game, but a stubborn Yellow Jacket line held them when they got within striking distance. Cleburne never gained possession of the ball in the Ennis end of field.

The Lions rolled up eleven first downs to four for Cleburne and the Jackets were held to a net gain of 11 yards rushing and 13 passing. Ennis gained 144 rushing and 44 passing.
