Ocala Makes Two Goals Same as Leesburg But Tries Fail

LEESBURG - With every nerved keyed to the snapping point, the Ocala and Leesburg high school
football teams watched Jupiter Pluvius play dirty trick on them last Friday afternoon. Just before the
game was started it poured down rain and the largest crowd that has ever seen a football game in
Leesburg was drenched.

The game itself was exciting. It was considered important enough for the Times-Union to carry a
complete story of it and this account is the one repeated here.

Fighting for every inch of ground gained, on a sopping wet field and in a hard rain and before a crowd
of 2,500 people the Leesburg Yellow Jackets won the championship of the Northeast Conference by
defeating Ocala 14 to 12. Evenly matched, the two teams played top notch football and only Ocala's
failure to make the points after touchdown saved the game from a tie.
