i i~ From Page One From Page One Odd it is, indeed---that Charles Town High's Purple Panther's all-opponent eleven for last f',dl doesn't include a single player from the Clarke County Eagles---a whist- hng good football team which gave the Panthers a 35-13 pasting in the final game of the season... Whoops! ! I While Coach Dick ttarmison talked long and late to Coach Tack Clark of Keyser in an effort to get the Pan h- ers off the powerful Tornadoes opening football game next September, he did not succeed and the Panthers will open the season around the first Saturday in September at Keyser. Coach Harmison, did say, however, tha in the following year 1960, the date with Keyser will defi- nitely be changed to a later date in the schedule. He also said that there is a strong possibility that the Clarke County Eagles will come here for a game with the Panth- ers around the third week in September... . ,- -, o Popular Dr. Wm. E.

There was one and now there's none-undefeated ,teams in the sec t ion that is-as the Charles Town High Panthers fell from the un- beaten ranks Friday night on their homec cure ~t the expense of the victory-hungry Berkeley Springs High In~z~s, who provid ed a sensational shooting exhibit- ion in the second h~lf of the game to overcome a first hai~ deficit and upset the Panthers 61-54.

Charles Town, led by four field- ers by Larry Burns and two by Danny FAsmon, moved into a w4de 17-8 lirst period lead. And just as it looked as though ,the Pan- thers would take #he Indians eas- ily as had been expected, the tides of battle changed and by half- time the Indians had sliced the lead to 25-20. Then in the third period the Indians turned loose a barrage bu*t the Indians were scoring five times themselves and ou~scored Charles Town 18-15.
