ORLANDO (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 when Khalid Thomas scored on a 28-yard run. Immokalee (11-4) stormed right back with a short touchdown run by quarterback Tshumbi Johnson.

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

Immokalee drew a false start on a QB sneak. With the ball on the 6, Gody was called for pass interference in the end zone.

From the 3, Johnson hit Xavier Richardson with a TD pass, but on the PAT Johnson couldn't handle a low snap and threw the ball into a crowd short of the goal line.
