It was indeed a crucial moment Lehi was ahead in yardage, the score was tied 6-6' and only one minute was left in the game. Both teams were on a tension and it looked like Lehi were the champions. cham-pions. Then the Richfield Wildcats Wild-cats completed a long 'pass, Duffin to Lewis, to break the 6-6 tie and go on to a 13-6 victory over Lehi in one of the mosts exciting games ever played on that field. For three quarters the game was a scoreless tie, with two costly fumbles fum-bles spoiling Richfield's scoring threats and the Wildcat's Kne tightening up to stop Lehi's thrusts, but with 11 minutes to play in the game, the fireworks started. After an exchange of fumbles, Home of Richfield made an interception on Lehi's 30 and raced for the first score. Lehi came back with an ever-dangerous ever-dangerous passing attack, to tie the game up, both teams missing the try for point. Then, with a Lehi victory seeming imminent, because be-cause of superior yardage gained, Richfield threw its first pass of the day. Lewis," a substitute end, grabbed the ball on Lehi's 30 and scored standing up. Another pass was good for the point after the touchdown. Mitchell at tackle and Kirkham at half played outstanding ball for Lehi, with R. Roberts passing being be-ing the Purple's best offense.
