Football: Robinson 42, Immokalee 7

IMMOKALEE — Running back J.J. Hubbard and quarterback Blake Rice provided plenty of momentum Friday for Robinson to advance in the playoffs.

Hubbard scored five times, rushing for 123 yards, and Rice threw for 245 as the Knights routed Immokalee 42-7 in a Class 2A, Region 3 semifinal.

Robinson (9-2) broke open a 7-all tie early in the second, scoring five straight touchdowns.

"This is our goal every year, to be playing at Thanksgiving time," said Robinson coach Mike DePue. "But we think we have to play better than we did tonight. Immokalee was a very feisty team. "…What can you say about J.J. At playoff time, he always breaks out with some big games. Our defense put a lot of pressure on Immokalee, but we gave up some plays that we shouldn't have."

Quarterback Tshumbi Johnson passed for 216 yards for Immokalee (5-6), but Robinson sacked him seven times.

After Immokalee tied the score at 7, Hubbard scored three straight times, on a 67-yard pass and runs of 7 and 1 yards. Hubbard scored on a 29-yard blast in the third and, one play after the Knights stopped the Indians at the 1, Rice hit Frankie Williams for a 99-yard touchdown.
