The Falcons are still kicking themselves for not finishing in last week's Soul Bowl loss to Douglass. But that loss taught Millwood that playing a full four quarters is essential.

Lesson learned.

“Against Douglass, we came out flat in the second half,” Robinson said. “We actually did (in Week 1) against Star (Spencer), too. But in this game, we really, really, really wanted to take pride in coming out in the second half.

“That's prime-time football. It doesn't get any better than that.”

Robinson, a senior, was Millwood's prime-time star. In addition to the blocked field goal and the interception, he rushed for 91 yards — including a 55-yard fourth-quarter touchdown that tied the game at 14.

But it was the young guys — like Lambeth and freshman running back Sheldon Bulock, who had 14 carries — that Robinson came away most impressed with.

“We got a lot of guys — sophomores and freshmen — that are playing key positions,” Robinson said. “These guys do not quit.

“These guys get picked on; they get beat, but they never quit.”
