Football: Gibbs 28, Blake 26

TAMPA — Gibbs quarterback Emmanuel Stewart threw a 30-yard touchdown heave to Kendrick Battle on the last play of regulation to tie, and then Stewart ran in a botched extra-point attempt hold to stun Blake 28-26.

Stewart bobbled the hold on the extra-point attempt, but he scooped up the ball and ran around the left side into the corner for two points and the victory.

Less than five minutes before, running back DeAndre James had given Blake a 26-13 lead with a 70-yard TD run.

But after a fourth-down penalty by Blake prolonged a Gibbs drive, Patric Jones threw a 25-yard TD pass to Battle to pull within six.

Due to poor clock management and penalties, Blake was forced to turn the ball back over to Gibbs with only a few seconds left.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.
