Durango fights off Clark, holds on for 28-24 win

Team pages

The Durango High football team got more than it bargained for against visiting Clark but avoided the upset with a 28-24 victory.

Julio Mora's 2-yard touchdown run with six minutes to play was the game-winner. Mora had two scores and rushed for 135 yards on 30 carries.

“It was a battle,” Durango coach Gary Maki said. “It turned out to be a very good game and was back and forth all night.”

The game was delayed twice because the stadium’s lights went out. Maki estimates the delays were a combined 20 minutes, adding they came at the right time for his team.

Durango improved to 3-1 overall and 2-0 in the Southwest Division. Clark is still looking for its first win.
