Tavares Bulldogs Are Defeated By Leesburg, 13 To 6

Leesburg's junior Yellow Jackets hopped off to a six to nothing lead in the first quarter yesterday in their
game with Tavares and went on to win from the Bulldogs, 13 to 6.

It would be almost impossible to single out any one player for outstanding work yesterday. The rugged
Leesburg line opened up holes for their backs to obtain gains on almost every play.

The Yellow Jackets scored their first TD on a blocked punt with Hart going across the double stripe for
the first score. The try for the extra point was no good.

On a fourth down kick during the second quarter, Leesburg got the ball on the 40-yard line. In two plays
the Jackets were able to gain only five yards. Then with perfect blocking, Randy Brown gained 25 yards
for a first down. A few plays later, Webster tossed a 20-yard pass to Brown who scored the second
touchdown.

Two 15-yard penalties against Leesburg set the stage for the Bulldogs to score a touchdown with the
try for extra point failing.

The locals will play Groveland here next week.
