Answer 74: Without Thanksgiving?

September 15, 2006

For many years, Washington-Wilkes and our Devils met each year on Thanksgiving afternoon to decide bragging rights. What would the series record be if those games were not counted?

ANSWER:

The Tigers and the Lincolnton team played on Thanksgiving 12 times between 1922 and 1953. Washington won 11 and one was tied. As of 2006, if those games were excluded from the all-time series, the Devils would lead the series with 31 wins to 21 for W-W with 5 ties.
