Leesburg Holds Off Eustis, 7-6

September 12, 1992|By Joe Williams Of The Sentinel Staff
Orlando Sentinel
Updated: Thursday, September 12, 1992, 9:39 a.m.

The statistics indicated a big Leesburg victory - tailback Oran Singleton rushed for 159 yards on 19
carries, the defense didn't allow Eustis a first down until there was 4:11 left in the third quarter - but in
the end it was Herbert Ellis' block of an extra-point attempt that left Leesburg with a victory.

Complete scores: D-6 Ellis broke untouched around left end and dived in front of Ryan LaMere's kick
after a 38-yard touchdown run by Oliver Longley, giving Leesburg a 7-6
season-opening victory in a non-district game before about 3,500 fans Friday night at Memorial
Field/Hubert O. Dabney Stadium.

Leesburg, ranked 10th in the Class AAAA preseason Florida Sports Writers Association poll, watched
its potentially explosive offense continually explode in its face. Three times Leesburg was inside Eustis'
10 and failed to score. Penalties (nine for 100 yards) frustrated the Brian Raush missed on field-goal
tries of 48, 33 and 25 yards.

''I was disappointed because I don't think our offense performed like we know we can,'' said Ed
Hoffman, who won his debut as Leesburg's coach. ''We made too many - and put this in capital letters -
mistakes.

''It was just too many stupid mistakes on our part - clipping, holding. I don't think our offensive line did
diddly and I know we have a good offensive line.''

But most of the game" was dominated by Leesburg's defense, which limited Eustis' offense to minus 3
yards in the first half. It wasn't until Eustis quarterback Chessie Pyatt left the game with an injury and
was replaced by Maurice Hayes that the Panthers finally were able to move the ball.

Most of the work was done by Longley, who had runs of 7 and 14 yards to set up his 38-yard touchdown
run up the middle.

''The kids realized in the second half that we could play with Leesburg,'' Eustis coach Kevin McClelland
said. ''We went in at halftime and made some adjustments. We moved Oliver to fullback (from tailback),
and I think that helped.''

Longley, who was held to 10 yards in the first half, ended the game with 87 on 16 carries.
