And when it was done, a newcomer to the Ft. Worth city school football league had accomplished not only the unexpected...it had dumped the long-standing city standard bearer, R.L. Paschal by a single point.
Starting Saturday morning after the Friday night game, the Ft. Worth newspaper writers embarked on an amazing Paschal postmortem seeking to explain what happened to the City's darlings. Praise toward our mighty Highlanders was given grudgingly but there was no shortage of speculation by the writers about some questionable calls, and on, and on. The result was where a Friday night game was usually old news by the next day, this event went on into the following week as the writers kept moaning.
And finally, it was recognized that the old order had been rocked. The Highlanders had 3 more games to play before they could claim the City title, but for a couple of weeks, they sat atop the City rankings all by themsleves.
