Football: Robinson 36, Gibbs 18

ST. PETERSBURG — The Knights moved to 4-1 in Class 5A, District 8 with a road victory.

Two minutes in, Robinson got a 12-yard run by Vidal Woodruff and got the two-point conversion on a Martin Ruiz run to take a lead it did not relinquish.

Gibbs cut the lead to two on a 4-yard run by Maurice Hall. Robinson immediately responded with a 93-yard kickoff return by Byron Pringle.

Gibbs (2-3 in 5A-8) cut the lead to three early in the second on a 67-yard pass from Patric Jones to Hall. Hall finished with 82 rushing yards, 67 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Robinson extended its lead to 10 before halftime on a 22-yard run by Ruiz. Ruiz led Robinson with 78 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. The Knights opened the second half with a touchdown on a 16-yard run by Joe Foster to take a 29-12 lead.

"This is the first of four steps," Robinson coach Mike DePue said of the remaining district schedule. "We have three more big games to win in order to get into the playoffs."

  5. Bucs Roberto Aguayo kicks off 2017 on the wrong foot


    The goal posts still seem to be moving for Roberto Aguayo.

    The Bucs woebegone place-kicker, who is in a battle with veteran Nick Folk, went 1-for-4 in field goal tries from 35-40 yards Tuesday on a set of narrow uprights, the first day of full squad Organized Team Activities.
