Fighting Leesburg Wins Final 20-12

The Leesburg High School Yellow Jackets broke their streak of losses by defeating Eusits 20 to 12,
before a large crowd. It was the first and only victory for the Yellow Jackets as they ended the season.

It was all Leesburg in the first half of the game as they ran up and down the field with
Eddie Parker
scoring once in each of the two periods.
Buddy LaBorde added the extra points with some fine place
kicking. The Yellow Jacket defense held Eustis during this first half to only one first down and very little
yardage gained.

However, it looked like a different Eustis team in the third quarter as they finally began to get their
offense rolling. G. C. Smith did the scoring for the Panthers as he rambled 28 yards for the first
touchdown. This put Eustis still in the ball game as they were behind 14 to 6. A drive deep into
Leesburg territory finally ran out of gas as the Yellow Jacket defense tightened up and held.
