Armistice Day football battle 1935


Delmar Alumni Gridmen Drop Tilt to Wicomico


DELMAR. Del, Nov. 12 (Special).


Delmar Delaware High School Alumni and Wicomico High School Alumni, of Salisbury, met in an Armistice Day football battle yesterday before the largest crowd ever to witness a sporting event in this section. At least 1500 persons jammed the sidelines as the Marylanders won, 14-0.


The game was all Baker. The former Washington College star, now coach of the Wicomico High eleven, was the star of the fray.


 It was the first time in five years of football between the two schools that Salisbury was able to score a point against Delmar. The game became bitter in spots, and several players were hurt.


 Larry Horseman, former local backfield luminary, was injured in the fourth quarter when Baker charged into him as Horseman was about to receive a forward pass from Lockerman. Plans are being made to stage another game between the rivals on Thanksgiving Day at Delmar.
