– The Lubbock
Renegades clinched the Advanced Graphix I-27 Rivalry trophy with a hard-fought
60-49 victory over the Amarillo Dusters on Saturday night in front of 2,532
fans at the City Bank Coliseum.
Alvance Robinson exploded for 212 yards and five touchdowns
for the Renegades and was named Schutt Offensive Player of the Game. Renegades
quarterback Robert Kent turned in a near-flawless performance, going 21-29 for
277 yards and eight touchdowns with no interceptions. Virgil Gray and LoRico
Stevenson led the way defensively for the Renegades with 6.5 tackles each.
Dusters quarterback Julian Reese started the game 12-22 for
165 yards. Due to injury, Joel Steele would finish the game at the helm for the
Dusters. Each threw for three touchdowns in the game. Gerald Washington led the
Dusters’ defense with 6.5 tackles.
The Renegades found themselves on the other end of a
familiar situation by putting the first two scores on the board. The strong
start proved to be the difference as the two teams traded touchdowns for the
remainder of the contest.
The Renegades are on the road next week to square off
against the Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz. The Renegades defeated the Yard Dawgz
63-43 in Lubbock
on April 12.
