The big moment wasn’t too big for Isaiah Robinson. Not at all.

Robinson was one of the biggest highlights for the Nauset football team during its 45-42 loss at Dennis-Yarmouth in the 26th edition of the Chowder Bowl.

The sophomore from Yarmouth finished with four catches, 161 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns, connecting with freshman quarterback Brendan Peno for passing scores of 32 and 70 yards.

Robinson’s big plays weren’t limited to offense, however. He helped Nauset garner its biggest lead of the game when he returned an interception 45 yards for a touchdown to give the Warriors a 42-33 advantage late in the fourth quarter.

“He’s just a dynamic, dynamic player,” Nauset coach Jesse Peno said of Robinson, who received Cape and Islands League All Star honors. “He’s awesome and the sky is the limit for him. He has great chemistry with our quarterback and he’s just dynamic — you want the ball in his hands at all times and he shows up in big games.”

Robinson said he’s already looking forward to playing in more big games and getting another shot at D-Y in next year’s Chowder Bowl.

“I’m going to be back next year,” he said.
