Lincolnton High to Play Athens Friday

October 08, 1936

The Lincolnton High football boys will have plenty of trouble on their hands today (Friday) when they engage the highly-touted eleven from Athens High eleven here.

The boys are confident however, that they will give the boys from the Northeast Georgia city a tussle that they will long remember, and they are expecting to hold them to a low score even if they are not victorious in the struggle.

Coach Jones has been putting them through hard drills this week and all players are in good shape.

The Lincolnton lads are going out to will this ballgame and all the football fans in th town and others should go to the game and help cheer our boys on to victory.

The game will start at 3:15 P.M.

Next Friday Lavonia comes here for a contest with The Red Devils of Lincolnton High.
