TAMPA — An early Robinson lead sustained the Knights, helping to preserve a win over Dunedin despite some sloppy play late.
Special teams and defense helped propel the Knights (2-0) in the first half. Byron Pringle contributed some good kickoff returns. Brandon Peters intercepted Falcons quarterback Anthony Diviney and, 25 yards later, scored to put his Knights up 14-0.
Robinson then forced a fumble, recovering the ball about 2 yards from the goal line. Two plays later, the game looked irreparably one-sided after Antonio Hampton's TD run.
On the ensuing drive, with fewer than two minutes left in the first half, Dunedin's Tramaine Batten broke open a 90-yard touchdown dash. In the fourth quarter, Diviney found Austin Ladd to contribute seven more points but, despite a few opportunities created by the defense, Dunedin (0-2) fell short.
