MANSFIELD -- Mansfield Summit running back Marcus Jameson darted in from 2 yards out in overtime and the Jaguars' defense stopped Arlington Seguin at the 2 to preserve a 43-36 victory Friday in a District 15-4A contest at R.L. Anderson Stadium.
Kelton Warren's 3-yard touchdown run on the final play of regulation allowed Seguin (1-4, 0-1) to tie the score at 36. Warren, who led the Cougars with 194 rushing yards on 21 carries, also had two short touchdown runs in the first half.
Summit (1-4, 1-1) trailed 21-7 in the first half before Antonio Bennett and Patrick Tshituka put on an aerial assault. The duo connected on scoring passes of 4, 69 and 20 yards. The 69-yard play gave Summit a 29-21 lead at the end of the third quarter, and the 20-yard scoring strike gave Summit a 36-29 lead with 5:29 left in the game.
Tshituka finished with eight receptions for 160 yards, and Bennett completed 14 of 18 passes for 171 yards.
None of Tshituka's receptions, however, were more important than a 14-yard reception on third-and-11 on the overtime drive that gave the Jaguars a first down on the Seguin 12.
Summit forced a Seguin punt on the Cougars' first series of the game and drove 52 yards to take an early 7-0 lead. Bennett converted a third-and-11 attempt on the drive, hitting Tshituka for a 16-yard gain. Two plays later Daymon Smith darted in from 10 yards out.
A 62-yard return on the ensuing kickoff by Jordan Hicks sparked the Cougars' offense as Seguin scored on its next three possessions.
A 4-yard scoring run by Danarcus Stewart and two 1-yard touchdown plunges by Warren put the Cougars up 21-7 with 10:10 left in the half.
Seguin forced a punt on Summit's next possession to get good field position, but Summit defensive back Tevin Suggs picked off a pass on the first play of the drive to end the threat.
Summit then marched 71 yards, capped by the 4-yard scoring pass from Bennett to Tshituka, who made an acrobatic catch in the corner of the end zone.
