Two big plays in the drive were a 16-yard keeper by Wheeler on third and 14, and a Wheeler pass of 25 yards to Garret Collins for another first down.
Jeremy Jorgensen booted the two-point kick to give Gordon an 8-0 lead.
In the second quarter, Wheeler caught a 33-yard pass from Seth Allen for a touchdown as Gordon led 14-0 at the half.
Receiving the second-half kickoff, Gordon gave itself comfortable breathing room when it scored after a six-play, 55-yard rive that ended on a 26-yard TD pass from Allen to Brandon Gonzales. A big play in the drive was a 35-yard run by Wigington.
The PAT kick was blocked as Gordon led 20-0 with 7:29 left in the third period.
“Seth Wheeler was making it happen when we got the 20-0 lead,” Kostiha said. “We were running the spread and he was running and throwing well, and Wigington was catching the ball and we were doing a lot of things very well.
“They couldn’t guard Wigington. That was a matchup that we wanted to exploit.”
Trent finally found its offense and used six plays to reach the end zone as quarterback Eric Nichols sprinted 30 yards to pay dirt with 5:08 left in the third. The PAT kick was wide as the Hornets cut the Longhorns’ lead to 20-6.
Gordon stretched its lead to 28-6 with 47 seconds left in the third as Wigington capped an eight-play, 45-yard drive with a one-yard blast up the middle to the end zone. Jorgensen booted the PAT for a 28-6 advantage.
Lometa came back with a score and a PAT, but the Longhorns matched the scored after putting together a nine-play, 50-yard drive that was finished with a four-yard Allen-to-Wheeler TD pass as Wheeler was all alone on the left side of the end zone after Lometa fell for an Allen play fake. With 7:18 left in the game, Jorgensen booted the PAT to give Gordon what seemed like an insurmountable 38-14 lead.
