Winter Park's Passes Defeat Yellwo Jackets
In Game Here 26 to 0

By "DES"
The Daily Commercial
Tuesday, November 4, 1958

Playing without the services of their ace halfback, John Jane, the Winter Park Wildcats took to the air
and
downed the host Leesburg Yellwo Jackets 26 to 0 at Memorial Field last night. Teh Homecoming
game
had been postponed from last Friday night by rain.

The Yellow Jackets looked real good for trhe first half of the game and battled the visitors to a virtual
standstill unitl a pass interception late in the second quarter set their Orange Belt Conference foe up
on
the Jackets 26 yard line. At this point quarterback Mike Mosher wound up, heaved a 15 yard aerial for a
first down on the 11, and then tossed one good for the six points on a grandstand catch by senior end
Tom Morris. Captain Tom Ross stepped up and kicked the extra point ot give the visitors a seven point
lead that would have been good for the rest of the night.

Fullback Roger Clark came up with a slight concussion and the Jackets played without the sophomore
sensation in the second half. His abscence was evidenet as this reduced the Yellwo Jackets threat by
one
half. With teh defensive Wilcat 11 not thaving to wrorry about the inssdie runng of the big fullback, they
could concetrate their game on the outside thrusts of halfback Randy Brown. Capt. Ferrelll Young
moved
into the backfield and was a capable replacement for the injured Clark but his best was not good
enough
as the Wildcats took to the air in the second half for most of their yardage.





A Leesburg fumble on their 21 gbave the Wildcats another opprtunity which they proceeded to take
advantagte of and quarterback Mosher this time hit his halfback 175 lb. junior, Steve King, from that
point
for the TD.

Another Leesburg fumbl;e, this time on teh 35, set up the third score for the visitors. This time
quarterback Mike Wenneger with a 25 yard burst gave the Wildcats a first down on the nine. Three
plays
later he carried over from the two.

A pass interception in the closing minutes at their own 40 and the Wiildcats were on the move again.
With
but seconds rmaing, quarterback Mosher took a pitchout from Wenneger, faded back adn caught his
big
fullback, Phil Jacobs, on the fly, and the combination pass run paly was good for 45 yards, and ended
the
scoring for the night.

The deepest penetration for the Yellow Jackets came in the opening minutes of the game, as tehy
moved
to the visitors 20, only to give the ball up on downs. However, the locals were right back in scoring
position as the ever alert Kenny Ferguson intercepted a Winter Park aerial on the 25. From this point
the
Jackets made afirst down on the 14 and moved to the eight befoere they gave up the ball. This ended
the
Jackets scoring opportunities until the final quarter when senior letterman Ferrell Young showed fine
form
on a 20 yard sprint that set them up with a first down on the 15. The Jackets fumbled their chances
away
at this point, however, and were out of the game for all paractical purposes from then on.


For three quarters the Jackets managed to hold their won agaisnt a heavier and more experienced 11,
but the Wildcat advantage of age and experience began to tell in the waning minutes of the game and it
was more than the locals could cope with.

Ferrell Young, Eddie Fletcher, adn Kenny Ferguson played thier hearts out in a losing cause for the
Jacketrs. Across the line quarterback Mike Mosher was a constant thorn and  scoring threat every time
he
had the ball which was mnost of the time, and Capt. Tom Ross, their senior letterman at Center, was a
standout on defense.

Another Orange Belt Conference game on tap this week, as teh Yellwo Jackets travel to Sanford where
they take on the high flying Seminoles of Sanford High.
