The Athena boys motored to Her-
miston last Friday and gave a good
account of themselves against the
Sand Diggers, with the final score be
ing, 6-2 in favor of the Sand Diggeis.
Although the boys found it hard
going in the sand they did better than
in previous games with them.
The Sand Diggers made their only
touchdown in the third quarter on a
pass. In the fourth, Myrick blocked
a punt and scored a safety.
Athena could do nothing against
Hermiston's stonewall defense and re
verted to passing, making moet of
their yardage via the aerial route.
