Highland was on the verge of handing Gordon its first loss of the year this past Friday. But the Longhorns, who trailed 32-16 at halftime and 56-40 after three periods, ran off the last 22 points to deny the Hornets’ upset bid and pull out a 62-56 win at Highland.
Highland (2-4) enjoyed 16-point leads on four separate occasions, the last time after a 67-yard kickoff return by Ron Covington for a TD and Steven Tester’s PAT to make it 56-40 in the third period, only to see Gordon pull out the win on a 1-yard run with just 1:37 left and improve to 6-0.
