Football: Robinson 41, Gibbs 0

TAMPA — Robinson went three-and-out on its opening drive Friday then went on to pummel Gibbs (2-4, 2-3) 41-0 in front of a homecoming crowd at Jack Peters Stadium. Carlos Duclos scored first on a pitch that went 25 yards. On Gibbs' second possession, senior linebacker Demetrius Page intercepted a pass and took it 19 yards for a score. The defensive touchdown marked the 12th of the season for the Knights.

Knights senior Justin Madison had a big first half, making two tackles for losses, blocking a punt and recovering the block. He was matched up with Gibbs tackle Davarus Clark.

"I tried to use my speed and agility to get past him, I knew that would be my advantage," Madison said.

The Knights (6-0, 5-0) completed passes to seven receivers, including a touchdown to senior Kers Baysa in the fourth quarter.

"We don't have any superstars on this team, we just have a lot of great players," coach Mike DePue said.

    ARLINGTON, Texas — After battling through a 61/2-hour affair Sunday in Minnesota that was the second-longest game in franchise history, Rays officials were quick to decide that even though Erasmo Ramirez had just worked the 15th and final inning, they would stick with him to start Monday's game in Texas.

    The Rays had good reason to have faith in RHP Erasmo Ramirez starting Monday after closing Sunday based on his resiliency, versatility and efficiency. But it still turned out to be a bad idea as he allowed four runs without getting through three innings.

    We are on quite a roll as a community. First, we had a Super Bowl drop from the storm clouds into our lap. It just reaffirms the fact that Tampa Bay is great at lap. And Monday it became official: Next year's NHL All-Star Game will be held at Amalie Arena. The best in the world will be here to shoot and score. And …
