Addison, with 184 yards rushing, scored two touchdowns -- one on an 80-yard run -- for Fort Bend Hightower (13-3), which was making its second championship-game appearance.

The Hurricanes held a nine-point lead when Hill found Holmes on a 59-yard touchdown pass over the middle to cut Hightower's edge to 23-21.

The Dragons went ahead for the first time since an early 3-0 lead on Hill's 25-yard scoring strike to Corey Kemp with 2:49 left in the third quarter.

Addison also had a touchdown pass to Ryan Nelson. Jaquinn Henderson had a 5-yard touchdown run for the Hurricanes' first score.
