The game that was played Friday night between the Leesburg Yellow Jackets and the Sanford Celery
Feds was heartbreaking to the Yellow Jacket Football fans and to the team.

After Leesburg had scored in their second quarter and missed their point the score read 6-0 in favor of
Leesburg. The Celery Feds came right back in the third quarter to score and they also made their point
to go ahead 7-6. In the fourth quarter in the last few minutes of play behind the churning legs of Eddie
Parker and
Tommy Milam Leesburg marched 88 yards to Sanford's one yard and couldn't score.

The scoring was made in this order. In the second quarter Sanford threw a pass from Leeburg's 40
and Tommy Milam intercepted it and ran it back to the 40. From the 40 the Jackets picked up two first
downs and then
Ivan Roberts hit Tommy Milam with a pass. Tommy went over for the score. Then in
the third quarter Sanford marched to the Jackets goal line and Jim Hawkins went over after they had
recovered a Leesburg fumble and Hawkins also ran the extra point.
