He scored on runs of 49 and 38 yards in the first half to give the Chieftains a 13-10 halftime lead.

His 85-yard run late in the third period after Nault's fumble at the Chieftains 8 set up a 4-yard touchdown by quarterback Doc Harvey. Seminole led 19-10 at the time and seemingly had the Yellowjackets on the ropes.

But Kingfisher answered in the fourth quarter with 62-yard scoring drive with Nault gaining 50 of those yards running and receiving. His 30-yard scoring run cut the lead to 19-17.

After a Seminole punt, Kingfisher drove inside the Chieftains' 5 when Newton fumbled at the 4. Seminole, however, gave the ball back when Newson's fumble was recovered at the 17 by Kingfisher's Triston Ransom.

Nault scored two plays later from the 15 to give Kingfisher a 24-19 lead, its first since leading 10-7 in the second period.

Seminole was forced to punt again and Newton raced 73 yards with the clinching touchdown on Kingfisher's first play from scrimmage.

Seminole added a late touchdown on a 3-yard run by Harvey but Kingfisher's Jake Blair recovered the Chieftains' onside kick. The Yellowjackets then were able to run out the clock.

“We had our chances,” Snyder said.
