Nelson caught the pass and ran 38 yards for the games first score. The Mount Dora defense was
completely fooled by the misdirection play. Sophomore PK James Eldridge PAT was good and the
Jackets had a 7-0 lead.

Jonta Scott returned the Eldridge kickoff up to the Mount Dora 17 yard line. After a short Harley pass
and run the Hurricanes were looking at a third and 1 from the Hurricanes 39 yard line. Harley carried
the ball and converted for a Mount Dora first down, the Hurricanes first of the game with 1:45 remaining
in the first quarter.

Anthony Harris who replaced the injured Noor Davis in the lineup, came up with a big sack on Harley to
end the Hurricane drive at the start of the second quarter. With starting FB Flint Hicks out with a injury
the run gain struggled in the first half.     

Leesburg started the next drive with a 4 yard carry up the middle by Anthony Miller. Senior wide
receiver Juilliard Roberts, Jr. took a handoff on a end around for ten yards. After a 3 yard carry by
junior running back Anthony Miller and a offsides penalty by Mount Dora the Jackets moved deep into
Hurricanes territory.  On first and 10 Nelson was dropped by Ryan McCurdy for a 2 yard loss.

On second and 12 Mitchem dropped back to pass and was picked off and Mount Dora seemed to have
life again. Mount Dora defense was called for a penalty and Leesburg retained possession of the
football. A couple of plays later and the Yellow Jackets had a third and goal at the Mount Dora 3 yard
line.

A holding penalty on Leesburg backed them up to the Hurricanes 20 yard line. Mitchem than found
Dozier wide open in the back of the end zone for his second touchdown pass of the game. Mitchem
completed his first 6 passes on the night for 68 yards. He finished the game with 6 of  9 passes for 68
yards and 2 touchdowns.     

The PAT by Eldridge was good and with 6:31 left in the half Leesburg led 14-0. Both teams traded
possessions and could not move the ball and went into halftime the score still 14-0 Leesburg.

The Hurricanes came out the locker room on fire. Harley seemed to get in a rhythm for the first time in
the game. Return man Jonta Scott got the ball on a reverse on the kickoff and returned it to the Mount
Dora 24 yard line.

On first and 10 Harley picked up a 9 yards on a carry. After a Harley fumble and incomplete pass the
Canes were hit with a holding penalty. Harley again had a large gain on a carry and Mount Dora found
itself deep in Jacket territory with 9:43 left in the third quarter.  

Three plays later Harley had twin wide receivers on his left and right and a single back in the backfield
in shotgun formation. Harley took the snap and found Jordan Porter with a short pass and Porter did
the rest for the score. The drive was for 9 plays and 76 yards. The PAT was no good and the Jackets
lead was cut to 8, 14-6 Leesburg.
