King's Academy beats Florida High 49-48 to advance to Class 3A State championship game

King's Academy beats Florida High 49-48 to advance to Class 3A State championship game

It was another week, and another comeback for King's Academy. But this particular one in Tallahassee was the biggest win yet.

The Lions were down 28-14 at halftime to Florida High when, once again, former CBS12 Athlete of the Week Justin Wake stepped into action. Wake threw a 60 yard touchdown to Jayvon Wynn to make it 35-21, then special teams followed up with a successful onside kick. On the ensuing drive it was Wake finding Cory Croteau to cut the lead to 7.

Wake found Drew Luchey for a touchdown, and ran in another 13 yard score to give the Lions a 49-42 lead late, but they still weren't off the hook. Florida High scored a last minute touchdown, but painfully missed the extra point, clinching a 49-48 win and a trip the the Class 3A State Championship game. The Lions will take on Chaminade-Madonna for the title in Orlando next Saturday at 10 AM.
