Football: Robinson 48, Blake 26

TAMPA — If any fans only saw the beginning or end of Robinson's game against Blake, they might have thought the Knights lost.

The Yellow Jackets opened with the first two scores to take a 12-0 lead and also ended the game with two scores. The only problem was that between those 26 points for Blake, Robinson scored 48.

Robinson quarterback Vidal Woodruff threw for 203 yards and four TDs and running back Martin Ruiz ran for 118 yards and a score.

"It was a bookend kind of game for us," Robinson coach Mike DePue said. "We started bad and ended bad. Luckily we did a lot of good things in the middle. We played some good D and scored some points, but we definitely have some things to tighten up."

After Deandre James' two TDs gave Blake the early lead, Robinson answered with 28 straight points to end the half.

Blake QB Zain Gilmore had a late TD throw and 212 passing yards.
