Billingsley fought back from a 28-14 fourth-quarter deficit to earn a 34-28 win Friday at Holt.

The Bears (3-2) scored first, on a 2-yard run by Terrance Nolen. Thomas Nichols found Torrey Green for the 2-point conversion.

A Nichols-to-Green touchdown strike made the score 14-0, but BHS wouldn’t score again until there was 6:40 remaining on the clock in the fourth quarter.

In the meantime, Holt built a 28-14 lead.

The Bears scored three touchdowns to complete the comeback: a 5-yard run by Rashaud Caver followed by an Abram Dudley run for the 2-point conversion, a 12-yard pass from Nichols to Trey Tyus, and a 1-yard Nolen run that proved to be the game-winner.

Nolen finished with 119 yards on 23 rushes. Matt Prebula led the Billingsley defense with 13 tackles and a sack, Luther Tyus had 11 tackles and Dudley had nine tackles and an interception.
