Leesburg's fighting Yellow Jackets contested every inch of the way last Saturday and held the strong
DeLand high school team to a 6 to 6 tie. Outweighed many pounds to the man and with an experienced
team facing them, the Yellow Jackets played a brand of football that would make any city proud of its
youth and it was only by everlastingly pounding the line with its heavier backfield that the visitors were
able to even up the score.

Leesburg, though playing a steady game, did not open up until the third quarter when two forward
passes netted them a gain of over thirty yards, the second pass carrying the ball across the line for a
touchdown.
Gray to Brown netted about fifteen yards and a delayed pass Brown to Gray and Gray to Ling
made the score. It was as pretty a bit or aerial work as will be seen on any football field.

DeLand scored their touchdown after battering their way down the field for about forty yards, reaching
the one yard line on a first down. They tried to break through the line for three plays but the fighting
Yellow Jackets piled the plays up right where they started. On the fourth down the Leesburg secondary
defense allowed themselves to be pulled in for another plunge and
DeLand went around left end for a
touchdown. They failed to kick goal and left the score a tie.
