YELLOW JACKETS NOSE OUT RED DEVILS FRI. NITE

Close Score Win 13-12, Gained By Heads-Up Ball

Lady Luck and things including being on the ball came back to the Yellow Jackets Friday night in Winter
Garden when they topped the Red Devils in Winter Garden 13-12.

Where Yellow Jacket fumbles a week ago had much to do with the Yellow Jacket loss, last night it was
a different story. In the last quarter, the Red Devils had the ball on Yellow Jacket's two-yard line with two
downs to go. They fumbled. Yellow Jackets recovered and that was a smart game saver - better than
Lady Luck.

Ground Gainer Grigsby got going. In the first quarter he took the ball for a 56-yard gain and then carried
it over from less than one foot out. That was first blood and the extra point was made - that's the game
winning point, too.

In less than five minutes, Red Devil Chapman went around the left end to score for Winter Garden. After
the kickoff a pass and a 48-yard smash set up the play  for Chapman's score.

Up comes Collins who made a nice show of ground gaining in this game, too. With the third quarter
less than half gone, following a 46-yard drive by the Yellow Jackets, he carried over from the two.
