Football: Robinson 69, St. Petersburg Catholic 0

TAMPA — Robinson coach Mike Depue knew it was a big win. He just didn't know how big. Turns out, the Knights' 69-0 rout of St. Petersburg Catholic Friday night at home set a school record for most points scored.

Robinson (5-1) got some help as the Barons (1-6) turned the ball over five times (four fumbles, one interception), but it may not have mattered. Through the air and on the ground, the Knights moved the ball at will.

Case in point: Malcom Hubbert's first carry for the Robinson varsity on the last play of the game was a 91-yard touchdown run.

"We have a talented bunch of kids," Depue said. "They were just really clicking tonight."

St. Petersburg Catholic's starting quarterback Jaquell Cooper didn't play because of an injury and when the Barons did manage to move the ball, they turned it over when they reached in the red zone.

Robinson quarterback Blake Rice had plenty of time to throw and made the most of it, throwing for three touchdowns and 126 yards.

Starting running back J.J. Hubbard didn't miss out on the scoring, either, with a pair of touchdowns and 78 yards rushing.

Leading 42-0 just seconds before halftime, the Knights didn't ease up on St. Petersburg Catholic as Justin Madison blocked a punt and Alonzo Brown ran 6 yards for a touchdown to extend the lead to 49-0.

Five running backs scored for Robinson but the most impressive run may have come from fullback Chequille Williams, who bullied his way 21 yards over several Baron tacklers and stretched over the goal line for a score.
