The Jackets took over the football and after four plays had moved down to the Eagles 30 yard line. On
the next possession Mitchem fumbled the football and South Lake Recovered  six minutes left in the
contest. The Eagles moved down the Jackets 30 yard line and on fourth and 1 Max Green forced a
fumble and Junior DB Jeremy Jones recovered the football giving the Jackets new life.

"Some of the keys to last nights victory was our offense," said Roberts. "We didn't fold or break we kept
coming at them powering the football. We cant forget about our defense they always come to play."

The Jackets went on a 80 yard drive capped off by a 13 yard touchdown pass from Mitchem to D'Mauri
Jones his fourth on the night. The P.A.T. attempt was no good and the score was now 30 to 27 with one
minute and forty seconds left in the game. Nelson carried the ball five times for 22 yards on the drive.
Nelson led the Leesburg's running attack with 90 yards on 22 carries. Perry had 31 yards including a
30 yard scoring run, but did not play in the second half after suffering an injury.

Max Green came up with another big play when he sacked Brooks taking off precious time off the clock.
Brooks moved the Eagles offense up to the South Lake 43 yard line and spike the football with 15.3
seconds left in the game. The Eagles were still out of Aguayo kicking range. Brooks attempted another
pass but it was broken up by Jeremy Jones with 9:7 seconds left in the game. On the next play Brooks
scrambled down to the Jackets 42 yard line. As he was going down Banks attempted to call a timeout
to set up a 59 yard field goal by Aguayo but the officials ruled that time run out in the game. After the
officials consulted with each other and ruled that the game was over. Banks was furious and the Jacket
Nation breathed a sigh of relief.

"I don't feel that South Lake started wearing down in the last few minutes of the game," said Roberts.
We just stood tall on defense and stopped their athletic quarterback from making big plays."

The Jackets now lead the alltime series between the two schools 9 to 8. Leesburg will close out it's
regular season this Friday at home against Ocala Lake Weir. The Jackets still remains alive for a
playoff berth as the district runnerup.
