prevail 21-14.

LEESBURG -- Leesburg took care of business in Class 4A, District 6 wars Friday night, taking a
nailbiter 21-14 victory over Ocala Vanguard at H.O.Dabney Stadium.

Yellow Jackets senior quarterback Mark Smith was huge on both sides of the ball, rushing for all three
of Leesburg's touchdowns while putting an end to Ocala's potential game-tying drive when he
intercepted Knights quarterback Marquee Williams' pass on Leesburg's five-yard line with two minutes
to play.

Smith's five-yard touchdown run with 8:26 to play in the third quarter was Leesburg's final tally, giving
them a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Leesburg senior running back Tory Harrison rushed for 123 yards on 18 carries for the Jackets,
bringing his season total to 929 yards after five games.

It was a seesaw battle with several lead changes, but Leesburg (4-1, 2-0) won the all-important
turnover battle as the Jackets defensive back tandem of Kyle Smith and Willie Dixon took turns snuffing
long Ocala (2-3, 0-2) drives with an interception and a fumble recovery respectively.

The Knights started the scoring when Ocala starting quarterback Keenan Guyton threw a 54-yard
touchdown pass to sophomore wide receiver Labrente Bracey for an early 7-0 lead for the visitors.

Leesburg answered immediately. Starting the ensuing drive on Leesburg's own 41-yard line Smith
went to work, keeping the Knights defense off balance with both his arms and legs.

Smith connected with junior wide receiver Matt Sheperd on a pair of 17-yard passes on the scoring
drive, with the second reception giving Leesburg first and goal at the seven-yard line.

Smith burst off tackle up the middle on the next play, good for a seven-yard scoring run that deadlocked
the game at 7-7.

After forcing Ocala to go three-and-out, Smith led the Jackets on a rapid-fire seven play, 79-yard
go-ahead march, which he capped with a six-yard touchdown run with 28 seconds to go in first quarter.
