Trailing the homestanding Harris County Tigers 14-7 at the half, the Cavaliers charged back in the second half to take a 24-21 victory.
It was the final non-region game for the Cavaliers, who improved to 2-1 after a season-opening loss to Heard County.
After falling behind 7-0, the Cavaliers tied it with five minutes remaining in the first quarter on a Wilson Lindsey touchdown run and a Chase Freeman extra point, but Harris County took a 14-7 lead at the half.
Callaway tied it in the third quarter, with Lindsey again doing the honors, this time from close to 30 yards out, and Freeman’s extra point was true to deadlock the score at 14-14 with five minutes showing on the clock.
After a Harris County three-and-out, Callaway went back to work, driving down the field for a Freeman 25-yard field goal that put the Cavaliers on top 17-14 with 9:57 left to play.
The Cavaliers converted a fourth-and-long on the drive thanks to a completion from quarterback Tez Parks to Pedy Leverette.
The Cavaliers caught a break later in the quarter when they kept the ball on a roughing-the-punter penalty, and they went on to put the ball in the end zone, with Eddie Culpepper scoring from inside the 10-yard line.
Lindsey had a long run to put the Cavaliers deep in Harris County territory.
Harris County responded with a touchdown drive with less than a minute remaining, but when the onside kick failed, Callaway was able to run out the clock.
Callaway will carry a two-game winning streak into next week’s Region 4-AAA opener against Jackson-Atlanta.
