ROSCOE â€” The Hamlin Pied Pipers proved to be a major roadblock to the Roscoe Plowboysâ€™ playoff hopes here Friday as they dominated the scoreboard and came away with a 34-0 victory.
Hamlin, the district co-leader with Albany at 6-0, limited Roscoe to just 205 total yards as the Plowboysâ€™ district record fell to 3-3.
Roscoe came in with a two-game winning streak and was tied with Roby and Cross Plains for the No. 3 and final playoff berth in District 7-1A, Division II. But the Plowboys now trail Roby (4-2) by a game after the Lions crushed Gorman, 80-6, on Friday. However, Roscoe goes to Roby for its season finale this Friday.
Cross Plains is also 3-3 after losing to Albany on Friday, but owns a tiebreak-er over Roscoe because it won the teamsâ€™ head-to-head meeting in district.
Hamlin, meanwhile, will face Albany in a final-game showdown this week to decide the 7-1A champion and the runnerup.
The Pied Pipers finished with 332 yards against Ros-coe, and also forced four turnovers including three interceptions.
Max Nemir had five rec-eptions and Jesus Leanos four to pace Roscoe receivers, while Nemir also led the teamâ€™s rushing attack with 40 yards on 10 carries. Quarterback Cutter Davila completed 17 of 34 passes for 125 yards and also ran for 27 yards.
