Roscoeâs football team currently sits atop the District 7-1A, Division II standings after a 47-6 win over Baird in its opener last week at Roscoe.
But for the Plowboys to improve their record to 2-0, they must find a way to beat a Cross Plains team tonight on its home turf.
And while Roscoe is 2-2 this season â matching its total wins for the past two seasons â the team is 0-2 on the road so far.
Here are recent results for the Sweetwater Middle School eighth grade White volleyball team:

Today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 90. Winds will be breezy with a south wind at 15 to 20 mph.
Expect mostly cloudy skies tonight, with a low around 52 and southern winds at 10 to 15 mph. After midnight, winds will shift to the north-northwest and during the evening we'll have a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms.
And get ready for the cold front that comes through this weekend! Highs will be in the upper 60s/low 70s, while weekend lows will be in the upper 40s. Winds will be from the northwest and breezy on Saturday, but will decrease by Sunday night.
Five of District 4-3Aâs six football teams have finished the non-district portion of their schedules and are idle this week, with Monahans â which takes on Canyon â the lone exception.
The second, and by far most important, half of the season gets started when the teams begin district ac-tion next week.
So now â while the teams (except for Monahans) get a breather âseems as good a time as any to take a look at the teams (including Sweetwater), how they have fared so far and what their chances are in one of the stateâs best 3A districts.
Head coach: Hugh San-difer
Itâs taken awhile, but all three Nolan County football teams outside of Sweetwa-ter are hitting their stride.
The good news for Roscoe is twofold: not only are the Plowboys off to a 2-2 start after winning a total of two games the past two seasons, but â and much more im-portantly â they are 1-0 in District 7-1A, Division II after a 47-6 win over Baird this past Friday.
Roscoe will now travel to Cross Plains â also 1-0 in district â on Friday as the Plowboys try to build on last weekâs success.
