HIGH POINT — Jon Ervin got the call, and he knew what he needed to do.
With the score tied and the clock winding down, Ervin took the handoff from 5 yards out, cut back up the middle and plowed into the end zone with 2.6 seconds left for the eventual game-winning touchdown as High Point Central beat Asheboro 24-17 on Friday night at A.J. Simeon Stadium.
“It feels like one of the greatest Friday nights of my life,” said Ervin, a senior running back, grinning from ear to ear. “I can’t explain it.”
That capped a thrilling turnaround for the Bison (2-0) after falling behind 17-10 with 8:22 left in the game. The Blue Comets (0-2) finally took advantage of Central’s three second-half fumbles, scoring on a 5-run TD run by Christian Trogdon two plays later.
The Bison, however, rallied in the final four minutes. James Ledbetter forced and recovered a fumble at the Asheboro 12, and four plays later, on fourth-and-1, quarterback Justin Johnson ran around the right side and leaped into the end zone to tie it 17-17 with 3:53 left…..
