Football: Seminole 22, Dixie Hollins 16

SEMINOLE — Dixie Hollins' comeback fell 1 yard short.

The Warhawks (1-1) scored on their first offensive play, when Noah Weller hit Chris Steiermann for 84 yards. Steiermann, who was crowned homecoming king during halftime, caught four passes for 117 yards and the touchdown.

The Rebels (0-2) entered the fourth quarter down 22-3. But after a fan streaked across the field and into a waiting getaway car, they came to life. Over the next five minutes, they scored twice, once on a 94-yard pass from Drew Boylson to Marcus Smith. With two minutes to go, they were back in the red zone.

Facing fourth and goal from the 21, Boylson found an open Dovante Harrington on the left sideline. But Harrington, who leaped to make the catch, fell just shy of the end zone, causing a tense Seminole bench to burst into celebration.
