GIBSONTON — Tobi Antigha caught a 10-yard touchdown pass with nine second left, then Christian Carriere hit Logan McKnight on the two-point conversion as Steinbrenner toppled East Bay 20-19 on Friday night.
The Indians had taken a 19-12 lead when Tajee Fullwood tossed a 27-yard touchdown to Eric Hood on a halfback pass with 4 minutes, 52 seconds to go in the game, but the point-after was missed.
Still, East Bay seemed as if it would win its first home game after the Warriors failed to convert on fourth-and-3 play with 2:14 to go. But then the Indians failed to run out the clock.
They punted, and on the first play, Curtis Fitch connected on a 39-yard pass to Antigha (156 yards). Three plays later, Fitch found Antigha to set up the drama. Fitch finished 12-for-18 for 232 yards.
