Preseason football: Gibbs 21, Seminole 14

SEMINOLE — Gibbs held on to beat Seminole 21-14 in Friday's preseason classic. The Gladiators were led by a big-play passing attack, with Tyrell Hubbard-Smith competing 4 of 10 passes for 197 yards and three touchdowns.

After a scoreless first 22 minutes, Gibbs got on the board late in the first half on a Marquez Walls 30-yard touchdown reception.

In the third quarter after being forced to start from their own 1, the Gladiators' Hubbard-Smith connected with Demardre Walls for a 99-yard touchdown pass. They extended their lead to 21-0 early in the fourth on Walls' second touchdown catch off the day. He was injured on the play but will be good to go next week

Seminole made a late comeback, scoring on rushing touchdowns by Travis Wateska and Chris Garza-Mclean to cut the lead to 21-14 with 47 seconds left. Gibbs' Antonio Feacher, however, recovered the onside kick to hold on for the victory.
