Football: Robinson 34, Spoto 14

Robinson broke open a game that was tied at 7 at halftime with 27 second-half points, defeating host Spoto 34-14 Thursday to improve to 6-1 and 5-1 in Class 5A-8.

"We might be the quietest 6-1 team on the planet," Robinson coach Mike DePue said. "A lot of people forgot about us after the Jesuit game, but we've seen a lot of our young kids really start to jell."

Knights quarterback Vidal Woodruff connected with Tre Leonard for two second-half touchdown passes, and Robinson running back Martin Ruiz scored on runs of 4 and 8 yards.

Robinson wide receiver Byron Pringle opened the scoring with a 68-yard touchdown run out of the wildcat formation.

With the win, the Knights take a big step toward returning to the playoffs. Next week's game against Lakewood will be critical.
