Hawley runs past Plowboys

September 2, 2011

For most of the first half, a young Roscoe team held its own with Hawley in the opening game of the seventh annual Sammy Baugh Classic on Thursday.
But the Bearcats forced six fumbles, racked up nearly 500 yards of offense and pulled away in the second half for a 45-7 victory.
Roscoe (0-2) pulled off the game’s longest scoring play on an 81-yard run by sophomore Luke Rovig in the second quarter, and Eric Padilla’s extra point tied the game up at 7 apiece. But Hawley (2-0) answered with a five-play, 80-yard drive to regain a 14-7 lead and the Bearcats never looked back.

SW hosts No. 9 Monahans

September 1, 2011

For most local football observers, the jury is still out on just how good this year’s Sweetwater team is after the Mustangs’ 10-0 victory over Vernon in their season opener.
The defense had a shutout for the first time in the Craig Slaughter era and the kicking game was rock solid with Tadeo Canon-Masjoan nailing his kickoffs deep, as well as kicking a 32-yard field goal and his only extra point attempt. The latter came after Ryan Linebaugh scored Sweetwater’s only touchdown on a 1-yard run in the second period.

Roscoe opens Classic tonight against Hawley

September 1, 2011

Roscoe (0-1) will be seeking its first win when it plays Hawley (1-0) in Thursday’s opener at 7:30 p.m., while Sweetwater (1-0) — which is coming off a 10-0 season-opening win over Vernon at the Bowl — will be taking on No. 9-ranked Monahans (1-0) Friday at 7:30 p.m.
