The last two weeks have seen Roscoeâs football team pick up its first victory in nearly two years, followed by a respectable effort in a loss to Cross Plains.
But the Plowboys (1-1 district, 1-4 overall) will be facing their toughest test yet at 7:30 p.m. today at district favorite Albany. The Lions, who along with Hamlin and Cross Plains are 2-0 in district, have outscored their first two District 7-1A, Div. II foes by 105 points.
Roscoe, which has had a few starters return from in-jury in recent weeks, beat Baird 14-0 in its 7-1A opener before losing last week to Cross Plains 27-12.
On Friday, the real season begins for Sweetwater.
After three weeks of play-ing non-district games on the road and a week off to let some injuries heal and get in some extra practice, the Mustangs are home for their District 4-3A opener.
And what better way to kick off district play than to face your biggest rival?

Picked by one area publication to finish last in their respective districts, Nolan Countyâs two six-man foot-ball teams have proved to be anything but pushovers during the non-district por-tion of their schedules.
And both Highland (4-2) and Blackwell (3-3) â who end non-district play Friday by facing each other in their âBattle of the Hornetsâ at Highland â had lopsided wins Saturday while playing in front of friendly homecoming crowds.
