Local High School Team Takes Honors Though Lacking Usual Punch

Leesburg high school, though lacking its usual punch, managed to defeat St. Cloud high school by
score of 7 to 0 last Saturday on
Cooke Field. After three periods of interesting, slow football, Leesburg
came to life when Ling carried the ball to St. Cloud's four yard line after having received a very pretty
forward pass from
Grey. That play ended the quarter and in the first few minutes of the fourth period
Leesburg scored on the fourth down, St. Cloud holding the ball on the goal line, for two downs.

The Yellow Jackets were either over confident or their new Jersies had a bad effect, for the team most
certainly did not play the sort of football that they are capable of playing. Fumbles, calling the wrong
play and failing to runback punts, lost ground for them continually.

Ling played his usual good game at left end throwing St. Cloud's backs on numerous occasions for
losses. Roundtree on the other end showed equally well, especially when called into the back field to
carry the ball, making long runs around the ends. Adams, who has been playing with the scrubs so far
this year, replaced Brown at half back and did some fine defensive work. Grey at quarter, while he
managed to keep the ball in St. Cloud's territory during most of the game, did not show as good
generalship as usual. Murwin, at tackle, showed unusually well on the defense, breaking up St.
Cloud's attempt to gain ground continually and in the third quarter he gave the Yellow Jackets the
incentive that carried the ball across St. Cloud's goal when he blocked St. Cloud's attempt at a kick on
the fourth down.
