Jones Routs Leesburg In 3rd-quarter Surge

LEESBURG — Orlando Jones High School scored three touchdowns in the third quarter Friday night --
two scores coming within one minute -- to defeat Class AAA, District 5 rival Leesburg, 33-7.

The big-play attack of Jones was too much for out-manned Leesburg to handle.

''You can't coach speed and size,'' said Leesburg Coach Gene Foster. ''They have the speed and size.
We don't.

''If they would have stayed in their regular game plan -- a more controlled game -- I think we would have
played them better. But each time I thought we had them, they would break a big play.''

The big plays started early for Jones (3-1, 2-0) when return specialist Jesse Morris returned a punt for
89
yards for a touchdown with only 1:13 elapsed in the first quarter.

''I thought we played our kind of game,'' Jones coach Ernest Swift said. ''But we still need to work on our
offense. I don't think we have the right chemistry yet.''

The formula, however, was enough to overpower Leesburg offensively, 245 yards to 143.

The Tigers expanded their 13-0 halftime lead with two quick scores in the third period.

Running back Jerome Williams capped Jones' opening drive of the second half with a 23-yard scoring
run.
Marcus Mobley kicked one of his three PATs, to give Jones a 20-7 lead.

Less than one minute later, Al Fisher intercepted a pass by Leesburg quarterback Steve Madden and
raced untouched for a 48-yard score to clinch the victory, 27-0.

Leesburg (1-3, 0-2) averted the shutout late in the fourth quarter when running back Jon Cannon went
14
yards, capping a 70-yard drive. It was the Yellow Jackets' best drive of the night.

Brian Brewer scored Jones' final touchdown, a 9-yard run, to cap a 55- yard drive late in the third period.

The Tigers opened up a close first half with Demarco Henderson's catch of a 38-yard pass from
reserve quarterback James Morris.
