MANSFIELD -- Mansfield Senior's first win of the season arrived on Friday night in dominating fashion. The Tygers muzzled Lexington 42-6 for a convincing Ohio Cardinal Conference victory at Arlin Field.

Mansfield Senior's defense then took center stage, specifically, Amajeon Robertson. The junior standout picked off a pass at the Lexington 7 and bulled in for a score at the 2:45 mark of the second period. It was the first of two interceptions he had in the game.

Moments later, Hill and Grose hooked up on a 16-yard touchdown pass to make it 21-0 at the half.

Hill opened the third period with a 17-yard TD run to stretch the margin to 28-0.
