TAMPA — Robbie Robertson’s career game propelled Cambridge to a 39-27 victory over Indian Rocks Christian on Friday night.

Robertson, a 5-foot-7, 160-pound junior running back/linebacker, produced three of the Lancers’ four turnovers — two leading to touchdowns — and scored two second-half TDs as Cambridge (4-1, 3-1) remained a contender in the Class 2A, District 5 race.

“We haven’t really had a big win since I’ve been here my three years,” Robertson said. “This is just the beginning. .…We’ve got to keep this thing rolling.”

IRC (4-1, 3-1) got two Vinny Capobianca 75-yard scoring plays (pass reception and kickoff return), and quarterback Casey Woods accounted for three touchdowns and threw for 257 yards.

But Cambridge had Robertson. His two first-half turnovers (interception and fumble recovery) preceded short touchdown runs by Daniel Hamilton, and a fourth-quarter fumble recovery stymied an IRC drive. Robertson scored on an 8-yard pass from Phillip Johnson (186 yards passing) and sealed the game with a 30-yard TD run with 3:05 remaining.

“The district is wide open,” IRC coach Mark Buchanan said. “This brings a lot of teams into it. Every week is going to mean something.”
