St. Aloysius Ends Grid Play Tonight As Battles Kilmichael
Balzi's Flashes Seek 2nd Straight Unbeaten Season
Kickoff Is Set For 7:45
Foe Has Scored 189 Points To 20 For Opponents
by Billy Ray (Sports Editor)
Coach Joe Balzli's St. Aloysius Flashes will ring down the curtain to a most successful football season tonight when they take on the Kilmichael Hornets, rated one of the strongest teams in North Central Mississippi. Kick-off is set for 7:45.
Kilmichael was scheduled only last week when North Carrollton, having a hard time this season, asked to be dropped. The Hornets, with an all-senior starting eleven, were quick to grab a change to show their talent against the undefeated, untied Flashes.
Kilmichael, enjoying one of its best years on the gridiron, has lost only two games, both by one-point margins - to Lexington and Durant - while accumulating 189 points in a high-geared offense. Only 20 points have been scored upon them all season, and that by the teams that have beaten them.
Lexington, the team the Hornets bowed to by one point, has been one of the two teams which battled the Flashes to the closest margin. At. Al edged Lexington in the season opener 19-13 and escaped powerful Mendenhall, kingpin the the Little Dixie, 12-7. The Flashes have been able to name their score in the rest.
For St. Al, 11 players will be playing their final game in Purple and White uniforms, including nine starters shown above.
(The St. Al mentor warned his players that he was expecting one of the toughest games of the year...that tonight's foe has a great team, one that can go all the way on any given play - and the bad thing about it, we haven't been able to scout them, therefore, we don't know what to expect from them)
Bob Witty: St. Al 59 - Kilmichael 25. Score was 39-0 at half and Balzi had all starters dress in street clothes except for me so I could play defensive back as Kilmichael had tall ends who were catching passes over our short 2nd string team.
