Transcript...but recovered the ball and ran across himself for the score, making it a 7-7 ball game with 10:5 before the half.
Normal then began another drive..and pushed from their own 38-yard line to Southern's in 12 plays. Their second TD came then on a 20-yard end-zone pass from Meece to Larche.
The conversion gave Normal their 14-7 lead...and it stayed that way until halftime, despite the 48-yard punt return by Southern's Cecil Hart with only 1:54 remaining, Hart was shaken up on the play but returned for more action in the second half.

Shannon Runs 77-Yds.

The turning point of the ball game came on the opening kick off of the second half, when Carver Shannon took the pigskin of his own 10 and drove straight through the middle, slanted to the right side and ran 77 yards being hauled down.
The same Shannon hulled his way into the end zone three plays later and kicked the extra point to knot the game 14-14.
After trading punts, Normal took the ball on the N-43 and began marching for their third, and last TD. A 15-yard personal foul penalty on Southern's Charles Steptoe was a deciding factor in the Redbird march..and with 45:9 in the third quarter. The mas plunged over for another TD. The extra point gave the host their 21-1-margin...but the game was far from finished.

Norwood Passes

Bill Norwood, a flu patient all week before the game, hit on three consecutive attempted passes to spark Southern's game tying drive just before the end of the quarter. Rushing and Hart as he mixed the passes with powerful ground plays by Shannon, Hart and fullback Paul Restivo.
The beginning of the final stance found the ball resting on the Normal seven...and Shannon once again was up to the occasion when he head-butted his way across the goal line three plays later.
