Robbins opened the scoring with a 1-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter. Gavin Van Gorp, who started at quarterback, made it 14-0 with a 15-yard scoring run less than 2 minutes later.

In the second, Homecoming King William Vanderpool scored from 2 yards out to push the lead to 21-0 and then Robbins capped the first-half scoring with a 2-yard TD run.

Robbins ended his night with a 20-yard touchdown run with 9:12 to go in the third. That kicked on the continuous clock and PCM scored one more time in the fourth.

With 9 minutes to play in the game, Van Gorp connected with Jacob Wendt for a 2-yard TD pass.
