LECANTO -- Lineil Graham and the Leesburg defense made sure the Yellow Jackets wouldn't have a
repeat performance against Lecanto.

One year after seeing the Panthers rally from 12 points down in the fourth quarter, Leesburg (2-0)
used the legs of Graham and a stout defense to record an easy 33-3 win.

Graham finished the night with 152 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries.

Leesburg rolled up 337 of its 378 total yards on 16 rushing attempts.

All five of Leesburg's scoring drives took less than one minute, and its speed was too much for
Lecanto (0-2).

The 5-foot-10, 135-pound Graham scored on runs of 23, 75 and 40 yards in the first half as Leesburg
built a 20-3 halftime lead.

The Yellow Jackets outgained the Panthers 235-31 in the first two quarters.

Marquez Porter added a 71-yard touchdown run, and Matt Scheperd scored on a 63-yard run.
Leesburg's defense was just as strong.

The Yellow Jackets forced the Panthers to punt 10 times and allowed only 113 yards total.

Lecanto finished with 99 yards rushing on 51 attempts.
