LEESBURG — Auburndale High School, ranked fourth in Class AAAA, scored two touchdowns in a span
of 1:19 of the fourth quarter to come from behind to beat Leesburg, 28-26, and thwart a 222-yard, two-
touchdown performance by Leesburg's Oran Singleton on Friday night.

Even with Auburndale (3-0) up, 28-20, after those two quick touchdowns with 9:07 remaining, Singleton
and the Yellow Jackets managed to pump some more excitement into the crowd of about 3,500 at
Memorial Field/Hubert Dabney Stadium when he scored on a 16-yard touchdown with 6:30 to play.

Leesburg (2-1), however, was forced to go for the two-point conversion, and Singleton was stopped just
short of the goal line.

''He (Singleton) is a great little back,'' Auburndale coach Joe Parrish said. ''There aren't many backs
around like him. Leesburg is a great football team, and Coach (Ken) Weir did a great coaching job. He
had his team prepared.

''Leesburg is going to win a lot of games before the season is over.''

The game came down to a couple of critical mistakes for Leesburg. Auburndale's game-winning
touchdown came on a 17-yard return of a bad pitchout by Leesburg quarterback Steve Gooden, and its
only touchdown in the first half came two plays after another fumble by Leesburg.
