Leesburg Junior Jackets Defeat Eustis, 13 To 6

The Junior Jackets Racked their third straight victory yesterday with a 13 to 6 victory over Eustis.

Both teams were undefeated prior to the game. The difference was the play of the Leesburg line. Time
after time they ripped big holes in the line of Eustis that permitted the Leesburg backs to plow-through
for big game.

The locals scored a TD the first time they got the ball in their possession. Randy Brown received the
opening kick and went 40 yards before being stopped at the Eustis 36. From this point, Brown,
Webster and Huff teamed up to put the ball across the double stripe. Brown went over center for the
extra point and the score was 7 to 0.

Eustis scored its only TD in the first quarter. The Jackets fought off two scoring threats during the
second quarter and the score was 7 to 6 at halftime.

In the third quarter, the Jackets drove to the Eustis 38 yard line. With fourth down and 11 to go, a few
plays later, the locals put on a fake punt play Webster took a handoff from Randy Brown that netted 17
yards for a first down on the Eustis 21. On the next play, Brown went around right end, fought off three
tacklers and then went into the end zone, standing up the try for the extra point was no good.
