Leading 15-0 at halftime tonight, Flomaton overcame some adversity in the second half and held on late to beat Chickasaw 21-14 on homecoming.

The Hurricanes rolled in the first half, putting together good drives. However, Chickasaw recovered an early squib kick to start the third quarter and converted for a touchdown about 7 minutes later on a 56-yard pass to Thaddius Davis from Jarius Houston.

With the Chieftains within a touchdown from taking the lead, the Canes scored late in the third quarter to buy some insurance.
