Tuesday Football

An NFL football game, Minnesota vs. Philadelphia, was played last night - on a Tuesday for the first time since 1946.

The Rocky Mount Gryphons have also played a varsity game on a Tuesday - only once since integration in 1969.

Now, do you know any details of that historic game?

See if you can answer these any or all of these three questions:

1. What season did the Gryphons play that Tuesday game?

2 . What team did the Gryphons play?

3. What was the final score?

Reply to one or all three questions in the comments section. I will post the answers on Saturday!

TOURNAMENT UPDATES: The 35th Annual Eastern Carolina Classic (Wilson Hunt, Wilson Beddingfield, Wilson Fike, Greene Central) did get underway Tuesday evening at Wilson Hunt. Weather conditions did delay it one day.

And the Edgecombe County Christmas Tournament (North Edgecombe, SouthWest Edgecombe, Tarboro, Riverside-Martin) has been moved to Wednesday for its startup day at SouthWest Edgecombe. All games will now be played during the afternoon with the final game Wednesday and Thursday being played at 5:30.
