Leesburg Yellow Jackets vs. Groveland South Lake Eagles, High School
Football Game

Leesburg chalks up almost 300 yards on ground to beat South
Lake

LEESBURG -- As a coach, Charles Nassar always looks for a perfect game from the Leesburg High
School football team.

He nearly got it Friday night.

The Yellow Jackets rushed for nearly 300 yards, including 130 by quarterback Efrain Negron, to earn a
21-7 victory against South Lake at H.O. Dabney Stadium.

"This was the closest we've come to a perfect game this season, including our preseason games,"
Nassar said. "We committed a couple of turnovers and had a few penalties, but we did of things right
(Friday). We have some execution issues to clean, like the exchange between our quarterback and
running backs, this was a very good performance by our kids."

Leesburg (2-1) took a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter on a six-yard run by Malcolm Belton,
and added to its advantage when Jalen Dozier capped a three play, 33-yard drive with a 10-yard run
following a South Lake fumble.

Dozier took an inside handoff off a direct snap to running back Luther McDowell and outraced the
Eagles defense to the end zone.

The Yellow Jackets gained 146 yards in the first half, all of which came on the ground. For Nassar, an
advocate of the option, Leesburg's success on the ground was a highlight.

In the second half, the Yellow Jackets did not attempt a pass.

"Last week (against Mount Dora), D'Mauri Jones, our best receiver, was banged up but he was healthy
for this game," Nassar said. "He was healthy for this game, but South Lake did a good job defending
him, so we stayed on the ground and had of lot of success. Our running game was working, so why
change?"

South Lake (0-3) was its own worst enemy at times, particularly in the second half. The Eagles fumbled
on their first possession in the third quarter, their second of the game, and were whistled for two
equipment violations on defense -- the first of which occurred on a fourth-and-four, giving the Yellow
Jackets a first down.

Even though Leesburg eventually punted the ball away, South Lake watch the game clock become its
enemy, as the Yellow Jackets took two additional minutes off the clock.

"We're continuing to beat ourselves with silly mistakes," South Lake coach Walter Banks said. "It's like
giving yourself a self-inflicted wound. We digging ourselves into a hole that we can't get out of and it's
really frustrating.

"Our kids are leaving everything on the field, in terms of effort and desire, but we have to find a way to
cut out the mistakes."

South Lake's lone offensive highlight came in the third quarter when quarterback Stanley Evans hit Nick
Wiasome in stride and the junior wide receiver outraced Leesburg's secondary to the end zone on a
69-yard score. For the game, Evans completed four of eight passes for 127 yards with a touchdown
and an interception. Evans also rushed for 41 yards on 14 carries.

South Lake's ground attack was led by Steel Stewart, who picked up 67 yards on 10 carries.

In addition to Negron, Leesburg's running attack included Dozier (74-yards rushing), McDowell (59),
Belton (20), James Asibey-Bonsu (10) and Kamonte Philips (2).

For South Lake, the road doesn't get any easier Friday, when perennial Class 6A powerhouse Apopka
makes its first-ever trip to Groveland, while Leesburg opens district play against Citrus in Inverness.

"For us, the real season starts next week," Nassar said. "District games are the ones that count. We're
going to spend next week trying to get better, like we do every week. This win was nice, but the
important games on our schedule begin (Friday)."
