Football: Robinson 30, Orlando Bishop Moore 10

ORLANDO — In a game where Robinson's defense forced four turnovers, it was only right that Vic Rivera intercepted a pass and returned it 35 yards for a score to seal the victory 30-10 over host Bishop Moore in Friday's Class 5A region quarterfinal.

Byron Pringle fumbled on the Knights first possession, but quickly made up for his mistake when he caught a pass from Vidal Woodruff, broke a tackle and was off to the end zone on a 76-yard reception. Pringle finished the game with six receptions for 131 yards.

Terrance Baldwin caused the first turnover for the Knights defense as he picked off a pass from Danny May. Later in the second quarter, the Knights' Ethan Kindle forced a fumble. Bishop Moore's offense was stonewalled in the first half.

Robinson kicker Kody Thomas drilled a 34-yard field goal right before halftime to send the Knights to the locker room with a 10-point lead.

Woodruff threw an interception early in the third quarter to all the Hornets to get back into the game. Bishop Moore used a perfectly timed play-action call to score it's first TD as May found Jack Ramsberger wide open down the middle of the field for 45 yards.

On Robinson's next possession, Pringle went in at QB and found Kindle for a 45-yard pass to put the Knights into the red zone. Woodruff came back in under center and found Tre' Leonard in the corner of the end zone for an 18-yard score.

Bishop Moore trailed 17-10 as it narrowed the gap early in the fourth quarter after converting a 28-yard field.

Martin Ruiz helped finish off Bishop Moore, running in a 33-yard TD in the last few minutes of the game. Ruiz carried the ball 15 times for 93 yards, while the freshman Michael Duclos rushed for 97 yards on 15 carries.

With Robinson up 24-10 with less than three minutes to play, Bishop Moore was driving down the field when it fumbled. Robinson's Jovan Woods quickly recovered it to seal the victory for the Knights.
