Eminence Warriors were the victims of this debacle, which saw the Milton offense setting a new season high for point getting.

The Blue Demons chalked up their first conference victory by the decisive score of 45-24 over the Campbellsburg Indians Tuesday night. The Indians, with six games behind them, against three behind the Demons, were out to take their first conference victory and boost their wins above the fifty percent mark. The game was by far the most interesting played during the current season. The first quarter was packed with thrills for the spectators, as the score seesawed between the teams. During the second stanza the Demons seemed to pick up momentum and the half ended 16-12 in favor of the TCHS boys. The Big Blues were still leading at the end of the third, however, it was the fourth that the Big Blues really started to roll. Haywood Tingle scored 16; Jack Tingle-22; Hayden, 4; Black 2, and Craig, 1.
