Quarterback CHARLES KLUG passed for 314 yards and five touchdowns and also ran for another score in leading the host Scots to a 47-27 victory over the Governors, who had a hard time keeping up after answering Highland’s first touchdown with a score of their own.

When Klug wasn’t throwing touchdowns, running back ANTONIO ORTIZ was taking care of business on the ground, finishing with 157 yards and one touchdown while averaging 8.3 yards per carry.
