Dominique Hollie ran 3 yards for the winning touchdown in overtime as the Whitehouse Wildcats won a Class 4A Division II bi-district game 50-44 Friday against upset-minded Arlington Seguin at Memorial Stadium.

Seguin (6-5) had failed to make a first down and lost 11 yards on the fourth-and-2 play from the 17 on its overtime possession. Whitehouse (11-0) ended the regular season No. 3 in the Associated Press state poll.

Wildcats quarterback Patrick Mahomes, a verbal commitment to Texas Tech and the son of the former Rangers pitcher of the same name, rushed for 216 yards and threw for 200. His 25-yard scramble with 29 seconds left on a fourth-and-8 sent the game to overtime.

But his effort was matched by the Cougars’ Kelton Moore. Moore rushed for 222 yards — 190 of which came after halftime — on 42 carries and threw for 276.

Moore brought Seguin back from a 23-0 deficit to tie the game at 23-23 midway through the third quarter.

After Whitehouse went ahead on 1-yard TD runs by Hollie and Mahomes, Moore led the Cougars to three straight touchdowns in the fourth to take their first lead at 44-37 with 2:04 to play, including a 44-yard run for the go-ahead score. Darrian Hammonds also scored two touchdowns for Seguin.
