Academy Eleven Romps on Cookeville 57 to 0
Coach L.W. Houtchens' Livingston Academy eleven ran wild and scored
almost at will on the local field last Friday afternoon to pile
up a crushing 57 to 0 defeat against the Central High Cavaliers
from Cookeville. The scoring started early in the first quarter
and was kept up with a rapid consistency throughout the game. The
Academy team had no trouble in passing over a score when they desired
and the Central outfit never threatened the LA goal.
