Eleven fired up Eustis Panthers, 13 point underdogs, kept up with the Leesburg Yellow Jackets In every
way save for a lone extra point Wednesday night as Leesburg won a thrilling season finale 21-20.

Eustis, arch rivals of Leesburg, fought back doggedly to overcome Leesburg's 1- point lead at the end
of  the  first half but was only able to match Leesburg's second half score to finish the game one point
behind on the tally sheet.

Joltin Jim Grigsby scored all three times for the Yellow Jackets as he seemed to be the only effective
weapon against the light and shifting defense of the Panthers.

The Panthers employed a quick shifting defense led by Co-Captain Arona Cheatam, 135-pound, and
Art Davis, Panther linebacker.

Leesburg received the opening kickoff and Don Cunningham raced 64 yards before being pulled down
by David Ayres, Eustis safety man. From this point Leesburg promptly rolled to the 18-yard line where a
fumble gave the ball to Eustis. After an exchange of kicks the Jackets again took over and behind
Grigsby went on to score Richardson converted and the Jackets lead 7-0.     1   of    2     Next
