Tonight begins the third weekend of the high school football season, and two of Nolan Countyâ€™s four teams â€” Roscoe and Highland â€” are still searching for their first victory.
Roscoe makes its first true home appearance tonight as the Plowboys will entertain Miles â€” which is also 0-2 â€” at 7:30 p.m.
On paper, this could be a fairly even matchup since Miles, like Roscoe, has only scored a total of six points so far.
Miles was defeated by Reagan County 21-0 in its opener, then lost this past week to Quanah 36-6.
Blackwell goes for its second win of the season today when the Hornets travel to Brookesmith.
Pictured is Blackwellâ€™s Mason Magness (24) picking up yardage against a Jayton defender this past week.
