After a 2-0 start, the Community Christian Warriors were without two starters and ran into a wall as they fell 48-0 to Notre Dame in a Friday road loss.
Down by 26 points, Gordon rallied as Hoss Rouse ran for five touchdowns and Brandon Mahan scored twice on the ground and passed for another as the Longhorns (2-1) edged past Newcastle 66-64 in week two football.
Rouse rushed for 108 yards on 20 carries, but it was Mahan 138 yards rushing that topped all the Longhorns efforts.
Gordon also got scores from Charles Mowles on a 14-yard reception from Mahan and Morgan Mahan on a six-yard run. The Longhorns racked up 478 yards of offense including 333 on the ground.
Editor’s Note: Gordon’s statistics are not available in time for next-publication print, but I feel it’s essential to include as many teams and players as we can
