Robinson leads Monroe to blowout win

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Perhaps Mark Robinson will make this jersey change official after the night he had.

Monroe head coach Charles Truitt said Robinson's usual #16 jersey was torn up, so the junior donned #25 Thursday night.

He might just keep it permanently.

Robinson ran for three touchdowns and added another on an interception return in the Tornadoes' 59-16 win over crosstown rival Albany.

The Tornadoes held a three score lead after the first, and cruised to the win.

Monroe is now 4-3 overall with the win, 1-1 in subregion play. The Tornadoes have an extra day of rest to prepare for their road game with Cairo next week.

The Indians fall to 0-8 on the season. They'll look for their first win of the year in two weeks against Cairo.
