After its third defeat in the final minute of the fourth quarter or overtime, Leesburg is 2-5 and has work to
do in Class 4A-District 6. To have a chance at the playoffs, Leesburg (1-1 in the district) will have to do
next week what it has not done in the past two weeks: beat an unbeaten team, this time East Ridge
(6-0, 2-0).

"It's really frustrating," quarterback Tyler Hill said, "because we know we can win all these games that
are close."

Leesburg was done in Friday night by a Springstead team (6-0, 2-0) that was never spectacular, but
was effective enough in the first three quarters to build a 21-0 lead that withstood a frantic Yellow Jacket
comeback in the fourth quarter.

"They had a great scheme, and they have a good football team," Nassar said. "Their defensive line is
powerful and quick, and they have a good scheme. You put good players in a good scheme, and it's
tough to move the ball."

The comeback nearly started with the first drive of the second half, when Leesburg drove from its 21 to
the Springstead 6 in 15 plays, racking up nearly as many yards of offense (57, plus a personal foul) as
it had in the first half (59).
