Kingsport, Tenn. -

Dobyns-Bennett started its 2013 season with a comeback win over Farragut. The Indians prevailed 21-20 in a game that came down to the final play.

The Indians jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, only to see Farragut come back and tie the game at 14-14 at halftime.

After a scoreless third quarter, the Admirals added two fourth quarter field goals to take a 20-14 lead with under three minutes left in regulation.

In the final minute of the game, Dobyns-Bennett quarterback Josh Holt connected with Caleb Cook on a 45-yard touchdown pass to give the Indians a 21-20 lead with 35 seconds left.

Farragut though did not go away. After driving into Indians territory, the Admirals missed a game-winning field goal attempt on the game's final play.
