Leesburg vs Winter Park, High School Football Game

Winter Park Wallops Home Town Boys 26-6

Combining passing and running Winter Park defeated Leesburg's 26 to 6, in an Orange Belt
Conference game on Harper-Shepherd Field. The Yellow Jackets put up a hard fought first half but
weakened in second half to a stronger Wildcat team.

The Yellow Jackets held the Wildcats to a draw in the first half in what looked maybe like an upset.
However the Wildcats came back after the intermission to score twenty points and salt away their fourth
straight victory and give their homecoming crowd a good feeling.

The Wildcats struck paydirt first in the middle of the initial quarter with a pass play that covered 45 yards
in distance. The extra point try was no good and Winter Park led 6 to 0. In the second quarter Tackle
Jerry Garlock recovered a Wildcat fumble to five Leesburg the ball on Winter Parks 33 yard line. Tom
Milam and Eddie Parker carried the mail for the Yellow Jackets with Eddie going over for the score from
the one yard line. The extra point try failed and Leesburg had deadlocked the game. The two team
battled out the remainder of the first half on fairly even terms with no team able to score.

However, it was a new Winter Park team in the second half as they began to play the brand of football
that they were expected to play. Leesburg kicked off to open the second half and Winter Park began a
touchdown drive. Six plays after the kickoff, the Wildcats were in the Leesburg end zone and six points
ahead.

The Wildcats tallied again in the third quarter to put them well ahead of the Yellow Jackets. A Leesburg
pass was intercepted and a few plays later the Wildcats scored again. This time the tally came on
somewhat of a fluke as the Wildcat quarterback tossed a pass to his end who grabbed the ball, then
fumbled but the other Wildcat end fell on the ball int the end zone for the TD. This put the Winter Park
tam ahead 19 to 6.
