ROSCOE — It looked as if it might be a long night for Roscoe when Cross Plains’ Blake Hutchins ran 87 yards for a touchdown just over a minute in. But the Plowboys responded with two scores of their own for a 12-7 lead.
Ultimately, Cross Plains — and Hutchins — were too much to overcome, howev-er, as the Buffaloes regained the lead before halftime and pulled away over the final two periods for a 27-12 win at Plowboy Field.
