Academy Eleven Romps Cookeville 57 to 0
The 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.
