Brandon Lucero’s interception in the closing minutes allowed Robertson to breathe a sign of relief, sealing the Cardinals’ 21-18 squeaker at Santa Rosa Friday night.
RHS (3-0 and ranked No. 1 in 4A football) rolled up a season-high 339 rushing yards, including a whopping 263 and two scores by Joseph Paul Griego.
But the host Lions (0-3) had their own ground attack working and led on three separate occasions.
Santa Rosa’s Erik Lopez burned the Cards for an 81-yard TD catch on the first play from scrimmage.
