ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tallahassee Godby held on to defeat Immokalee 21-20 in the Florida Class 5A state championship game Friday after Immokalee botched an extra-point attempt with no time remaining.

Godby (14-1) took a 21-7 lead with 5:54 remaining in the game after Khalid Thomas scored on a 28-yard run. Immokalee (11-4) stormed right back with a short touchdown run from quarterback Tshumbi Johnson.

After both defenses held for a series, Immokalee received the ball at its 18-yard-line with 1:08 remaining and no time outs. Johnson drove the Indians down to the 1-yard line after a 19-yard pass to Mackensie Alexander with less than one second remaining.

Immokalee tried for a quick snap and QB sneak but the officials called a false start and moved the ball back to the six. On the next play Johnson threw an incomplete pass in the end zone but Godby was whistled for pass interference and the ball was moved to the 3. On the third untimed down Johnson completed the touchdown pass to Xavier Richardson in the corner of the end zone.

On the extra point play Johnson struggled to grab a low snap and scrambled before throwing the ball into a crowd short of the goal line.

Johnson finished with 301 yards passing but three interceptions. J.T. Bradwell threw for 108 yards and rushed for 67 yards and a touchdown.
