Jay Vees Lose 25-0

A supercharged Ocala football team defeated Leesburg 25 to 0 in a JayVee game here last night.
Carrying a heavier team the visitors more than revenged their defeat that Leesburg handed them earlier
this season.

The Ocala team scored on the ground although they did exhibit some passing. The two quarterbacks for
the visitors were two of the finest that has been seen in Leesburg this season. Time and again, they had
the JayVees fooled with reverses and direct handoffs.























Two blocked punts handed Ocala two of their touchdowns during the game. The Ocala line was charging
very fast during the game and were making use of a slight weight advantage.

The local boys put up a good fight but just were outmanned by experience and weight. Buddy Lindsey
and big John Russ looked good at end last night with. Lynn Bates and Ronnie Gibson looking good on
defense and offense, respectively in the backfield. Bob Blount, quarterback, got off some nice long
passes but still too high allowing some important interceptions to be made.

This now gives the Junior Yellow Jackets a two win and two losses record for the season.
