ORLANDO (AP) — LaMikal Kyles rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown and Bratt Northview scored 21 second-quarter points to roll to a 42-21 victory over Trenton in the Florida Class 1A state championship game Friday night.

Northview (11-3) dominated the game with opportunistic defense and special teams. The Chiefs took advantage of four Trenton turnovers, a blocked punt and an explosive return game.

After Cedric Stokes scored to cut Northview's lead to 21-7, the Chiefs’ Neino Robinson took the ensuing kickoff 79 yards.

Stokes rushed for 192 yards and two touchdowns on 35 carries for Trenton (13-1), but quarterback Stephen Smith went 2 of 10 for 16 yards and three interceptions. His first pass was intercepted by Neiko Robinson.

Kyles’ 58-yard touchdown run in the second half opened the scoring. On the next series, Arkelle Elliott blocked a punt that was scooped up by Chad Smith and returned for a 20-yard score.
