Fast Finish Earns Leesburg A Victory Madden-McGohorn
Connect, Give Yellow Jackets Victory Over Lake Weir

LEESBURG — Junior wide receiver John McGlohorn caught a pass from senior quarterback Steve
Madden for a 45-yard touchdown with 3:40 remaining to cap a second half rally Friday night and lift
Leesburg to a 25-24 victory over Candler Lake Weir at Memorial Field.

The touchdown was the last of three in the second half for the Yellow Jackets as they rallied from a 24-
7 halftime deficit.

The game, played before about 1,500 fans, was a non-district season opener for the Class AAA teams.

''I had him been beating him on that side. It was just a matter of time,'' McGlohorn said about the play.
''From the way I saw it, I never had to slow down. It was a very good pass. It couldn't have been better.''

McGlohorn's touchdown reception was the second touchdown of the fourth quarter for Leesburg. Earlier
in the period, junior fullback Cory Coleman had spun away from a tackler at the 5-yard line and dove
into the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown run to close the deficit to 24-19.

Leesburg also scored on its first possession of the third quarter, moving the ball 55 yards before Kevin
Brown broke loose and scored on a 4-yard run.

But the first half belonged to Lake Weir.

Sophomore quarterback Paul Johnson, the third smallest guy on the field at 5-foot-9, 143 pounds,
played a big part in the Hurricanes' domination.

Johnson competed 9 of 14 passes in the half for 154 yards and three touchdowns. Johnson completed
just 1 of 8 passes for only nine yards in the second half. He also spent part of the half on the sideline
with an injury.

Leesburg turnovers contributed to its problems in the first half. Two of Lake Weir's touchdowns came
after Leesburg fumbled.

Johnson hit junior wingback Clint Wilson on short pass play, but Wilson broke two tackles and raced
72 yards for a touchdown with 6:43 left in the first quarter. That came one play after Madden fumbled on
a handoff.

''In the first half, the guys just didn't have their hearts in the game,'' McGlohorn said. ''We went back into
the fieldhouse at halftime and decided we could do it. And we came out and played much better.''
