Hornets’ upset bid dashed by Gordon

October 4, 2011

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.

Whigham finished with 214 yards on 19 carries and scored a school-record seven touchdowns, five of them in the first half, to help Midland Christian take a 48-0 lead before Sweet-water (3-3) came up with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to make the final score a bit closer.
