Tyreek Robinson ran for one score and returned an interception for another touchdown as Moorestown stunned Camden Catholic by 30-14 on Friday night.

Robinson, a junior QB/DB, scored on a 62 run and 57 INT return as No. 7 Moorestown made big play after big play against No. 2 Camden Catholic.

Sid Ruffin returned a kickoff 78 yards for a TD and Anthony Bonett took back a punt 65 yards for another TD for Moorestown (3-0).

Jarred Alwan ran for both TD for CC (2-1). The Irish were hurt by numerous penalties and also couldn't contain the Quakers on special teams.

Robinson continued his emergence as one of the biggest surprises of the season. A wide receiver in camp, he became a quarterback only because Drew Pederson went down with a broken ankle.

But he's led the Quakers to wins over Seneca, then-No. 6 Delsea and No. 2 CC. He ran for 106 yards Friday night and was 5for-8 passing for another 50 yards.

"We shocked the world," Robinson said.
