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.
