Jackets stop Panthers in 72nd meeting

Lake County’s oldest high school football rivalry was renewed on Saturday at H.O. Dabney Stadium
when Leesburg hosted Eustis.

The rare weekend game came about because severe lightning on Friday forced a postponement of
the 72nd meeting between the two teams.

Despite the delay, quarterback Jabari Dunham threw three touchdown passes against his former
team in a 19-7 win for Leesburg.

The win marked the sixth-straight victory against the Panthers for the Yellow Jackets. Leesburg now
leads in the series with a 46-25-1 record.

Leesburg (2-0) won in spite of putting four fumbles on the ground, losing possession of the ball each
time. The Yellow Jackets fumbled the opening kickoff, which resulted in a missed field goal, and on
their second offensive play, which the Panthers converted into its first offensive touchdown of the
season.

Even though his teammates were careless with the football, Dunham was nearly flawless. The senior
signal-caller completed 17-of-23 passes for 180 yards.

Dunham and receiver Bryan Jefferson proved to be a lethal combination, connecting nine times for
118 yards and two touchdowns. Dunham’s third scoring pass, which came with 2 minutes, 56
seconds left in the game, was a six-yard strike to Adrian Falconer.

Eustis (0-2) actually outgunned the Yellow Jackets 199 yards to 196. The Panthers lost starting
quarterback Andrew Holland late in the second quarter when he injured his left (non-throwing)
shoulder.

Holland was replaced by freshman Dontavias Perdue, who com pleted only 1-of-11 passes for 14
yards, but showed considerable poise after being thrown into the breech of a rivalry game.

Perdue ran for 29 yards on seven carries and directed a 13-play drive that consumed nearly eight
minutes to open the second half. That drive, however, ended with a fumble.

Eustis got on the scoreboard first when Holland connected with Thomas Stutts on a 23-yard pass on
the first play after Benton coughed up the ball on Leesburg’s first offensive snap.

Dunham responded by directing a 14-play, 68-yard drive that ended with an 18-yard strike to Jefferson.

In the second quarter, Dunham again connected with Jefferson, who raced down the sidelines for a
39-yard score.

Anfernee Scott led Leesburg’s running game with 10 yards on five carries. As a team, the Yellow
Jackets totaled 16 yards on 24 carries.

For the Panthers, Quentin Reid led all runners with 70 yards on 11 carries, but the junior left the game
in the second half with an injury. As a team, Eustis totaled 153 yards on the ground on 32 carries.

Holland completed 2-of-6 passes before leaving the game for 32 yards. He also threw an interception
that resulted in Dunham’s second scoring pass to Jefferson.

Leesburg will play its first road game of the season Friday at 7 p.m. at Mount Dora.

Eustis will travel to Osceola County for a 7:30 p.m. clash with Har mony.
