Area football


Gordon wins, 60-12

GORDON – Paced by three touchdowns by Seth Wheeler, the Gordon Longhorns sealed the six man District 10 (Division I) title after a 60-12 win over Lingleville here Friday night.

Wheeler scored three different ways – on the ground, catching a pass and throwing a pass.

“It is extremely exciting to win a district championship,” Gordon first-year head coach Joe Kostiha said. “Our kids took some lumps early when  had new players and players playing new positions, but instead of using excuses the kids got better each week and kept working to get to the level e are at now.

“Seth had a great game, but really our defense was the story. Garrett Collins and Jacob Wigington played outstanding on defense and kept their good spread back corralled.”
