"vapor" from its tall smokestacks.
According ,to "Merriam

given for the word "vapor" is

It was hard not to run into a

stormed the field in wild
celebration Friday night after
Taylor County's thrilling 26-19

favored Fort White.

while junior linebacker Georgie

hearts of hundreds of Indian fans

the pass away at the'last-possible
second to end the game.
Pandemonium broke loose at
Dorsett Stadium. As hundreds of
fans, cheerleaders and parents
stormed the field to celebrate with
overjoyed Bulldog players and
coaches, Indian players collapsed
in agony, with many failing to

setting dream season ended,
without their planned second-ever
trip to the play-offs.

TCMS girls soccer team
to play dads to raise $$$
Coach Dale Brewer promises "a boat load of laughs and a good time for
all," as his Taylor County Middle School soccer girls take on their dads in
the fundraiser, aptly called, "Dads vs. Daughters."
The game will be held on Nov. 10 at 7 p.m. immediately following
the TCMS boys soccer team home opener against Florida High at 5:30.
Admission will be one dollar, "or however much a person wants to
donate," Brewer said. "Remember, this is a fundraiser."
He reports, "The trash talking started early as eighth grader Kelsea
Smyrnios' father,.Manuel, told his daughter 'I have seen you all practice,
you aren't that good. We will beat you bad.'
"Once the girls stopped laughing at the thought of their dads playing
soccer, they had some words of their own. Eighth grader Gloria.Taylor
said, 'There is no way they are in good enough shape to play us. We will
run circles around them.'
"All are invited to watch the festivities or the comedy, whichever
applies," Brewer said.
