Giltner wins comeback OT thriller

What an odd opening round Class D2 playoff game between Arapahoe and Giltner Thursday night in a contest won by the visiting Hornets 58-50 in overtime. The Hornets held a 14 point lead in the second half, blew it and trailed Arapahoe by 14 with 3:30 to play before mounting an improbable comeback to tie it and send the game to overtime. It only took one extra frame for Giltner to score a touchdown and hold Arapahoe on a 4th down from the two-yard line.

With the win, Giltner advances to the second round of the playoffs and will host top-seed Mullen next Wednesday (Nov. 1). We'll have complete coverage from last night's exciting win in the upcoming edition of the News-Register.
