MOUNT DORA

The first of three times that Derrick Byrd tipped Mount Dora punts was the charm -- and it led to the big
play that Leesburg needed as it went on to defeat the host Hurricanes 23-0 Friday night.

Leesburg (2-0) was clinging to the 3-0 lead it got at the end of the first quarter on Stephen Malinda's
32-yard field goal when Byrd busted around the right side of the Hurricane line and got his hands on
Doug Hill's punt halfway through the third quarter.

Brian Clamon fielded the ball at the Mount Dora 40 and returned it for a touchdown, aided largely by an
outstanding block from Lamont Floyd.

"We needed something to get us going -- we needed a big play," said Leesburg Coach Bud O'Hara.
"And we got it from three guys. Byrd blocked the punt. Clamon scored the touchdown. And Lamont Floyd
made a real good block."

Leesburg scored a pair of touchdowns in the last five minutes of the game to make it 23-0. Corrie Kelly
scored on an 8-yard run and quarterback Jermaine Orr connected with Jarvious Wright on a 46 yard
pass for the touchdowns.

But the game was a lot closer than the final score might indicate as a gutsy Mount Dora (0-2) squad
bent but didn't break throughout most of the game.

The Yellow Jackets took the ball inside the Hurricane's 25 yard line four times, and was inside the 15
three times in the first three quarters but only had Malinda's 32-yard field goal to show for it.

Leesburg managed to accumulate 235 yards on the ground as five runners gained more than 30 yards.

Lenard Mickens led the rushing attack with 82 yards on only seven carries. Tony Field added 53 yards
on 10 carries, followed by Orr who gained 41 yards on five carries. Kelly had 35 yards and Brandon
Hooks added 31 yards.

O'Hara was impressed with Mount Dora's effort.

"I can't say enough about Mount Dora," he said. "I think they just got tired. They had a tremendous game
plan, but our two platoons helped us. They wore down."

O'Hara was also impressed with Broc Cosden, Mount Dora's quarterback, and the Hurricane receivers.

Cosden managed to complete 11-of-24 passes under a persistent Leesburg pass rush. Ryan Garry
snagged five receptions while gaining 34 yards. Welton Nance caught three passes for 42 yards and
Kevin Williams caught three for 30 yards.
