Football: Durant 21, East Bay 14

GIBSONTON — Durant scored two touchdowns in the game's first three minutes, then held off East Bay to win 21-14.

Leading by seven with just under a minute left in the game, Durant (3-2) attempted a field goal from the East Bay 34-yard line. Conner Bass' kick fell way short, and East Bay's Keionne Baines caught it and returned it to the Durant 16-yard line with 37 seconds left.

The Indians (0-4) reached the 7-yard line, but on fourth and 1, quarterback Arthur Jacobs, who had earlier scored on an 8-yard run, lost track of the down and spiked the ball to stop the clock. The Cougars took over with just one second left.

The game began with a 75-yard kickoff return by Durant's Jamell Garrett. After a botched punt by East Bay, Jarmarion Hamilton ran it in from 19 yards.
