Wet Night Ends With Robinson’s Fourth Straight Loss
September 20, 2014
Friday night was a wet one all around the Bay Area. In the Knights’ return to Jack Peters Field after bleacher renovations, they welcomed in the Armwood Hawks. Armwood, a perennial state championship contender, played a sloppy game in the pouring rain but came out on top with a 28-6 win.
Both teams fought through the conditions early on, ending the first quarter knotted at zero. Armwood finally found the end zone with 10:37 left in the second quarter when quarterback Noah Johnson scored from three yards out to give the Hawks a 6-0 lead. Minutes later, Caylan Holloway ran for a 2-yard touchdown before converting on the 2-point conversion to extend the lead to 14-0.
After a scoreless third quarter, Armwood added to their lead with 8:33 left in the fourth on long fumble return by Quinton Singletary after Byron Cowart forced the loose ball.
Robinson found the end zone in the fourth with a 20-yard touchdown pass from Travis Forehand (filling in for an injured Malik Tyson) to Iyan Mitchell.
After a late interception, Armwood added insult to injury by scoring from 1 yard out with under a minute left.
Robinson (0-4) will head to Leto next week in search of their first win.
