Tom Comer Sr. brings his band of Eustis Panthers into Jacket Country tonight, in one of the hottest
new rivalries in the area, to face Leesburg.

Eustis is off a big win over Umatilla last week, 14-6, while Leesburg with a mediocre, (3-3-1) record is
coming off a 6-6 tie last week at the hands of Ocala Vanguard, which is like kissing your sister as the
old saying goes.

Last year both teams tangled in Eustis with (7-0) records with Eustis coming out on top 19-0 in one of
the biggest games in a winning fashion for Panther Head Coach Tom Comer's coaching career.

Last week's action besides the Leesburg game found Clermont rolling over South Sumter 36-7,
Wildwood routing winless Tavares 58-0, Mt. Dora over Groveland 48-0 and Lake Weir beating Crystal
River 36-7.

Last week I was (5-1) on my predictions for a total of 36-14 for a current .720 standings.

Wildwood is home this week after two big wins in a row en route to their current (7-0) record, against
Mt. Dora. Charlie Harrison, Mike Watkins, Corky Jones and Co. should have little trouble in being still
unbeaten after tonight. Wildwood 34-Mt. Dora 6.

The battle of the winless teams take to the field in Groveland where Tavares and the Greenies both
bring (0-7) records into the game. Groveland appears to be the worst hard luck struck of the teams, so
in a close battle I see Tavares the victory. Tavares 20-Groveland 19.

South Sumter is away this week in St. Cloud, but the Raiders are rounding into a fine football team
behind the play of Wayne Parsons and Jonnie Roberts. South Sumter 22-St. Cloud 14.

Lake Weir, sporting a (4-3) record is home in a key Mid-Florida-Conference tilt with Inverness. Ken
Mobley, Artie Carr, Bernard Franklin and Co. should roll on toward their best season in a long time.
Lake Weir 14-Inverness 8.

Eustis should welcome the return of Matt Shaw back which will help out both ways. The team that
comes out with the fewest injuries and the fewest mistakes should be the winner of this big games.
Eustis 19 Leesburg 7.
