Football: Robinson 48, Middleton 6

TAMPA — Robinson got its blowout win, but its high-octane offense took a while to get going. In fact, Robinson (3-0) had 14 points before it had a first down en route to its 48-6 win against Middleton (0-3) in the Class 2A, District 5 opener for both teams.

The Knights' Vic Rivera intercepted a Aaron Midthus pass and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. Robinson extended its lead to 14-6 as the first quarter ended when Frankie Williams returned a kickoff 78 yards for a score, becoming the school's all-time leader with five.

The Robinson offense got involved in the second quarter with two short J.J. Hubbard scoring runs and a 46-yard TD pass from Blake Rice to Marcus Baker.

Rice added a second touchdown pass and scored on a 30-yard run.
