Leesburg High turned the horses loose Friday night at Memorial Field as everyone figured in the
scoring act in a lop-sided 33 to 0 win over winless Lakeview High of Winter Garden. It evened the
Jackets record at 2 and 2 in the OBC and at 3 and 3 for the season and set the locals up for
Homecoming next week and the rough, tough Seminoles of Sanford High.

The scoring started the minute the Jackets got their hands on the ball as they marched from the
opening kickoff and their own forty yard line for a series of five first downs to five them a first and goal on
the visitors ten yard line. Halfback John Gray kicked off the TD parade with a nine yard run to register
the first six points on the scoreboard. Robert Dickson up from the JayVees this week place kicked the
extra point.

Before the fans could settle back in their seats End Jon Axford came roaring in on the Red Devils
quarterback to shake him loose from the ball and his teammate at the other end position Max Wettstein
plucked it out of the air and lugged it the remaining forty-nine yards for the Jackets second six points.

In the second quarter the Jackets took a Lakeview punt on their own thirty-five but were set back by a
fifteen yard penalty. They moved then with a combination running and passing game for four
consecutive first downs to the opponents five yard line. Quarterback Mike Nappi chipped in with a
twenty-three yard run to put them in scoring position but fullback Bill McBride racked up the TD. His was
one yard effort with Nappi hitting End Axford with a pass for the extra point.

Most of the play was at midfield in the third quarter with one Jacket drive penetrating to the visitors
thirty-yard line before they gave up the ball via the fumble route. The third quarter ended with a Lakeview
punt rolling dead inside the locals ten yard line.

From this point the Jackets moved goalward with their fourth TD coming on the end of a Nappi to
Wettstein pass followed by a lateral to Halfback Arthur Spence. The play covered seventy-seven yards
for the score.
