Gerard Martinez found Robinson in the end zone for a TD on the Spartans first drive of the second half, and added a 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter to help seal the game. Taz Taiopu added a 14-yard TD run for the Spartans.
Cheyenne took the early lead when Kenneth Counts hit Tyler Spight on a 26-yard touchdown pass to cap a 16-play opening drive, but failed to score again.
