The Panthers had other ideas though and on the first play from scrimmage
Chubby Bartholomew
pulled in a David Ayres pass for a 65-yard T.D. Chubby's kick was good and the score was knotted, 7-7,
at the quarter.    

Early in the second quarter Grigsby led the Jackets to the 4-yard line from where he scored. Richardson
kicked the extra point and the score was 14-7.

The ensuing kickoff saw Don Currington race 82 yards on a reverse for another T.D. Bartholomew
missed the all important kick and the Panthers trailed 13-14 as the half ended.

After a scoreless third quarter Grigsby of Leesburg and Ayres of Eustis each tallied a T.D. as the game
ended.

Outstanding for Eustis was Cheatam and Davis on the line and Ayers in the backfield.

For the Jackets it was Hewitt and Richardson on the line and Grigsby in the ball carrier group.
