ORLANDO-A botched extra point cost the Immokalee Indians a shot at overtime - and gave the Godby Cougars the 5A state title.
Immokalee scored on the last play of regulation to make the score 21-20, but botched the extra point.
The one thing Immokalee couldn't afford to do in the Class 5A state title game they did; and it's costing them.
Immokalee, which entered the state title game with 32 turnovers turned the ball over three times in the first half and trails 13-0 to Godby at the half.
Tailback Tim Longmire 1-yard run out of the wildcat formation gave the Cougars a 7-0 lead with 7:46 left in the first half. Lester Thomas picked off Tshumbi Johnson two minutes later, leading to quarterback JT Bradwell's 6-yard score on a fake end around to increase their lead to 13-0 with 5:20 left in the half. Florida State commit JC Jacksonreturned the ensuing kickoff 49-yards but the Indians couldn't take advantage of the great field position.
A bad low snap on a fourth down field goal attempt from the 5-yard line forced Johnson to scramble and make a play. Johnson's errant pass was picked off by Kelvin McIrvin in the end zone and returned to the 40-yard line with two minutes left in the first half to keep the Indians scoreless.
