Lakeview Spoils Homecoming for Jackets

Homecoming at Leesburg High was ruined by the Red Devils of Lakeview High as they took a 6 to 0
victory over the Jackets at Memorial Field Friday night. The locals had plenty of scoring opportunities
but missed a pair on fumbles and on two other occasions were stopped by a stout Devil defense. The
first one occurred at the visitors six in the first quarter with the second one a goal line stand as the first
half ended. Fullback Larry Graham picked up the Lakeview TD with a three yard plunge.

The Jackets opened strong and threatened to break the game wide open in the early stages. The
Winter Garden eleven took the opening kickoff at their own thirty two and moved to their forty seven
where linebacker Stan Himelsbaugh returning to the Jacket lineup after being out of action for three
weeks intercepted the first of two Lakeview aerials he gathered in during the night. The Whitey Smith
coached crew combined some hard running by Fullback Gary Semanchik with a twenty three yard
pass play of their own from Quarterback Bobby Nappi to carry them down to the visitors six. Here their
drive stalled and they were tossed back to the twenty. They moved back to the fourteen but Lakeview
held and Leesburg surrendered the ball on downs.

The visitors picked up a first down at the twenty four and then moved back to their own thirty two before
they were forced to punt. The Jackets put the ball in play at their own forty six and then moved into
Lakeview territory with a first down at the forty two before they were forced to punt.
