Leesburg Battles Back For 20-6 Win

Leesburg and Osceola battled to a 6-6 tie for forty-five minutes at Kissimmee Friday night.
Unfortunately for the Kowboys the game lasted another three minutes during which the Jackets,
fighting, to maintain their number two state ranking, pushed across a pair of TDs for a come from
behind 20-6 win over their hosts.

The final score however is not indicative of the hard fought contest that was in doubt until the very end.

The Kowboys started out like they had never heard of Leesburg. They took the opening kickoff on their
own twenty one and marched downfield for the score picking up three first downs enroute. The big
ground gainer in their drive was Tailback Charles Hunley with a twenty four yard burst off his own left
tackle. The 182 lb. senior rolled for fifty one yards in the first half but was held to a more six yards in the
second half for a fifty seven yard total to lead the host team ground game. Their score came on an
eight yard pass from Quarterback Brad Brown to End Mike O'Dell. Their kick was not good but they
were out in front six to zip.
