Jackets Expect Hard Game With Daytona Tonight

When the Leesburg Yellow Jackets meet the Daytona Beach Buccaneers here tonight (Friday) they
will face one of the stiffest games in their conference schedule as the Buccaneers have won two
conference victories and smashed
New Smyrna all to pieces while the Barracudas took the Jackets
by a two point margin.

Coach Ed Manning says that "In spite of the ragged game that was played last week, the team is not
conceding the game to Daytona Beach" although on a comparative score,
Daytona Beach has a 70
point lead in conference games. Coach Manning says that the two conference losses have not taken
the spirit from his team and that they are ready and eager to meet their foes from the east coast and
will put up a stiff fight.

Last Friday night the Yellow Jackets looked bad-or worse if any other adjective can be thought up-for
the line failed to hold and the backfield did not block as it should. Ball carriers had little or no help and
the line was as weak as paper. Of course,
Jack Lindeman's absence from the line was noticeable,
yet the absence of this one player was no excuse for the line folding as it did. Poor centering caused
loss of yardage but was only one of many failures that helped to make the Jackets an easy target for
the Barracudas and it was not until the final quarter that the Jackets put up any semblance of real
opposition.
