claw Lions ...27-7
Lion-Eagle games was lacking as neither team had any share in
the Lone Star Conference championship. This 22nd annual ET-
NT clash marked the first time in LSC history that neither team
had won the loop crown.
The East Texans drew first blood in the melee, and the Eag-
les were forced to come from behind to win the game. With less
than three minutes of the game gone, the Lions scored on a
quick 53-yard pass play. North Texas came back midway through
the second quarter to punch over a tally after Guard Herb Ferrill
recovered a Lion bobble on ET's 23. Dick Nutt smashed through
left tackle from the 6-yard line for the touchdown. Nutt's conver-
sion try was good, tying up the game, 7-7.
Another Eagle score came in the fast-moving second stanza
when Cecil (Zeke) Martin shot a 25-yard pass into the waiting
arms of Luther (Bugs) Fambro in the end zone. Nutt again con-
verted to put the Eagles ahead, 14-7, as the first half ended.

ET's goal when the North Texans took over the ball on their
The Dentonites' final touchdown came on the first play of
the last quarter. Ned McNeill, who was offensive dynamite all
afternoon, returned a poor ET punt to the Lions' 33. Seconds
later Nutt took it over from the 1-foot line and kicked the
extra point to complete the scoring for the day.
Homecoming royalty on parade.
