Fighting Leesburg Wins Final 20-12

Tommy Milam, playing his final game for Leesburg, salted the game away for the Yellow Jackets in the
final quarter as he rambled through left tackle, cut towards the sidelines and then outran the Eustis
defense for 65 yards and the third Leesburg touchdown. LaBorde's attempt went wide and that was the
end of the Yellow Jacket scoring.

G.C. Smith rambled around this own left end in the fourth quarter to score on a 60 yard run. Eustis
recovered an on-place kickoff but could not put on the needed drive for the scoring.

All in all it was a fine game with Leesburg displaying control over Eustis in all of the game except the
third quarter. Milam's touchdown run was almost nullified in the final quarter when one of the Leesburg
blockers clipped an Eustis defender. However the action happened after Milam had gone over the
goal. The penalty was assessed against Leesburg on the following kick-off.
