LEESBURG - The Leesburg Yellow Jacket - Wildwood Wildcats game was played Thanksgiving
morning with each team having a record of 6-3 entering the arena. It was also the last scheduled
game of the year for both teams.

Leesburg kicked off to the Wildwood 31 yard line. The Wildcats could not move the ball on the ground
and kicked over the center line to the 47 yard line. The Jackets fumbled on first play on own 48 yard
line. Wildwood changed to a wide spread using five players twenty yards out, two players wide left, and
used a passing attack. Quarterback Charlie Harrison moved the team to the 25 yard line where Milton
Harrison ran 25 yards for the TD, and Bill Darnell kicked the extra point.

The Wildcats kicked onside eight yards and recovered on Leesburg 49 yard line. Leesburg committed
their third fumble in first quarter on own 31 yard line. Wildwood QB threw a 20 yard pass to Mike
Carruthers for TD and Darnell kicked the extra point.
