“Oak Hill vs.
by Dot Meredith
They met in the
sea of mud
Oak Hill and Alderson Hi’
And when the game was over
It was a scoreless tie.
The “Indians” out played the “Red Devils”
And took the ball down the field:
But when a goal was in in sight
The “Red Devils” refused to yield.
Keadle, the star of the game
Made a beautiful 40 yard dash;
While Russell, McClung and Bailey
The Oak Hill line did smash.
Joe Sawyers, the Oak Hill star,
Was stopped on every play;
While Nowlan, Masssey and Black
Was always in Terry’s way.
Alderson made eleven first downs
Oak Hill made just nine;
Alderson had the best backfield
And Alderson had the best line.
Not sure what year this game took place but my grandmother
must have kept it because my father, Frank was the Bailey in
the poem. Maybe someone else knows the Keadle, Russell, and
