Pampa rallies past Randall
Pampa pulled out the most significant win so far for first-year coach Cody Robinson, as the Harvesters rallied from a 21-point deficit with a huge fourth quarter to beat Randall 29-28 at Harvester Field.
Randall led 28-7 going into the fourth quarter before Pampa (3-1) mounted a huge comeback. Cornelius Landers, who ran for 111 yards on 18 carries, scored two of his three touchdowns for the Harvesters, and after the last one they converted a two-point conversion to cut Randall’s lead to 28-22.
Pampa then forced a punt and got the ball back with over two minutes to play. With 33 seconds left, Sam Anguiano hit Jordan Lacy on a 38-yard scoring pass (Lacy’s only catch of the game) and the Harvesters kicked the extra point to take the lead for the first and only time in the game.
The loss spoiled Randall quarterback Braxton Burd’s effort. Burd scored a pair of touchdowns and totaled 163 yards rushing.
Randall fell to 2-2 on the season and now has two straight losses.
