Football: Robinson 35, King 14

TAMPA — In a game marred by penalties and injuries, Robinson blocked a punt and lineman Justin Madison returned it 41 yards for a touchdown to pull away from King in a 35-14 victory Thursday.

"Emotional roller coaster," Robinson coach Mike DePue said. "We shot ourselves in the foot with ignorant penalties. We have to be a much more disciplined ball club to win our district."

The teams combined for 210 yards of penalties.

Robinson running back J.J. Hubbard scored touchdowns of 12 and 32 yards to help the Knights (2-0) to a 21-0 lead after the first quarter. Hubbard led all rushers with 93 yards. King (2-1) battled to within seven after Greg Windham's 28-yard touchdown to Chris Murray. The Knights had three touchdowns called back.

    It's Andy's time.

    And it's about time.

    Former Lightning captain Dave Andreychuk has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame. He had been eligible since 2009, a ridiculously long wait for someone who scored 640 goals, including a record 274 on the power play.
