SEFFNER — Armwood coach Sean Callahan noticed his players didn’t seem ready for their game against Robinson on Friday night, so Callahan called a team meeting.
Whatever was said worked, as the Hawks rolled to a 27-0 win against the Knights to run their record to 4-0.
“I didn’t think we were ready to play tonight,” Callahan said. “We had a little bit of a soul-searching meeting today where a lot of things were divulged about getting ready. When you’re dealing with high school kids, they don’t know how good Robinson is.”
Armwood started slowly, building a 10-0 lead at halftime over the winless Knights, and the game could’ve been much different if not for a big penalty.
Robinson’s Brandon Peters intercepted a Noah Johnson pass 2 yards deep in his end zone and returned it for a score, but the play was called back because of an illegal block 20 yards behind the ball.
The Hawks ground Robinson down and pulled away in the fourth quarter, posting their second win in five days.
Running back Trevor Laurent, a 5-foot-7 sophomore, was nearly unstoppable, catching five passes for 100 yards.
Johnson was 9-for-15 for 159 yards with an interception. He also ran for a 1-yard touchdown.
