TAVARES - Leesburg used some lightning-like scoring in the middle of the third quarter to break open a
relatively close game. The Jackets scored three quick touchdowns in a span of seven plays and went
on to manhandle Tavares 49-0 in high school football action Friday night at Dr. Argin A. Boggus Field.

Orr took Joey Samartino's 33-yard punt at the Leesburg 19-yard line and returned it 81 yards as the
Jackets went on top 24-0.

Three plays later, Orr swiped C. L. Longley's errant pass and returned it 35 yards for another score and
a 30-lead.

"We had a lot of big plays," said Leesburg Coach Bud O'Hara "Jermaine had a big night wit a punt
return and interception return for touchdowns."

And it took just three more plays for Leesburg (5-3) to score again. Francis Cuyler picked off another
Langley pass and returned 29 to give Leesburg the ball at the Tavares 4-yard line. Derrick Byrd carried it
on the next play to make it 37-0.
