Durant 21, King 16

DURANT — JeTwan Smith replaced Daniel Coan as the starting quarterback to lead Durant (2-2), overcoming four first-half turnovers. "(Smith) had a great week of practice and responded well," Durant coach Mike Gottman said. "He basically beat (Coan) out."

Running back Ryan Rice had 100 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns for Durant.

For King (1-3), quarterback Reese Sturgis was 11-of-16 for 122 yards, and he ran for a touchdown. A blocked field-goal attempt and a fumbled snap on another attempt hurt the Lions.

King scored with one minute left, but a successful two-point conversion was negated by a penalty, and the second attempt failed. Nine penalties set King back 75 yards.

Durant's recovery of the onside kick sealed the win.
