Kissimmee, through sheer force and weight, battered the Yellow Jackets to a 14-0 defeat here Friday
afternoon. The first three-quarters ended with neither side gaining much advantage and both unable to
score. Difference in weight began to tell in the fourth quarter when Wines of Kissimmee plowed
through the line for long gains.

Leesburg's warriors gave a good account of themselves and fought every inch of the way before the
drive of the heavier team, Kissimmee seemed to have some of the same signals and crossbucks as
the Yellow Jackets and smothered most of the plays the local team used before started. Wines, the
star of the visiting team, was responsible for the two touchdowns, while his excellent punting kept the
ball in the Leesburg's territory the majority of the game.

Wines put the ball across the line for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter after advancing the ball by
a series of end runs and line bucks, his kick for extra point was successful. After that event another
touchdown followed in quick order when Wines circled end for a long end run. Poor tackling allowed
this touchdown, the try for extra point was successful. Neither team was able to complete many
passes, the few that were completed netted very little yardage. The game ended with the ball in the
middle of the field, the Yellow Jackets making a desperate effort to score in the closing seconds of the
game.
