Robinson looking to continue strong defensive effort against Lorena

ROBINSON, Texas (KWTX) The Robinson Rockets are coming off their best defensive performance in years, giving up just 206 yards to Salado in a 27-7 win over the Eagles last Friday.

The seven points allowed were the fewest since 2014 when Robinson did the same thing to Fairfield. A lot of things are going right for the Rockets, but this Friday will be a challenging showdown with the Lorena Leopards, who lost for the first time last Friday to Connally in the final minutes.

"Any time Robinson and Lorena get together, you can throw everything else out," Robinson head coach Tommy Allison said. "They're going to play as hard as they can, and our kids are going to play as hard as they can.

"They've been ranked in the top 10 in the state of Texas in the last several weeks, so they're good. I expect their very best."
