Football: Robinson 42, Lennard 14

RUSKIN — A week after a painful loss to Class 5A, District 8 rival Jesuit, Robinson came out on fire against Lennard, racing to a 21-0 lead en route to a 42-14 victory.

Knights coach Mike DePue said his team wanted to do anything but forget the loss to Jesuit.

"We're never going to forget about it," he said. "It's always going to stick in our craw. We have to win every single district game to hopefully play Jesuit again in the playoffs."

The Knights (3-1) came out with that mentality, scoring their first touchdown just 1:09 into the game. Quarterback Vidal Woodruff connected with wideout Byron Pringle from 6 yards out.

After the Longhorns (1-3) fumbled the ensuing kickoff, it took just two plays for the Knights to score again. This time Pringle ran it in from 14 yards out.

Woodruff tossed his second touchdown after a three-and-out by Lennard, a 12-yard pass to Ethan Kindle to give Robinson a 21-0 lead before Lennard had made a first down.

Lennard quarterback Pete Foret ran for a first-half touchdown and tossed a 65-yarder to Victor Williams in the fourth quarter.
