The 2011 football season ended for Blackwell and Roscoe on Friday, and both finished rebuilding years on a losing note.
Roscoe had its best de-fensive effort of the year, but lost 12-2 at Rotan to finish a winless campaign at 0-10 (0-5 in District 7-1A, Division II). Roscoe led 2-0 after a first-period safety when Eric Padilla recorded a tackle in the end zone, but Rotan scored the next 12 points and held on for the win.
Roscoe had just 87 yards rushing, led by Padillaâ€™s 43 on 12 runs, and 12 passing, but also gave up its fewest points in a game as the defense held Rotan to 207 yards. Rotan scored its last points on a 44-yard fumble recovery by Deandre Lee with :03 left until halftime, and both teams played to a scoreless deadlock over the final two periods.
Despite having just one win this season, Blackwell (1-9) entered Fridayâ€™s sea-son-ender with a playoff chance before losing 68-20 against Panther Creek, which claimed a postseason berth with the win to to go 2-1 district and 6-4 overall. No other information on either team was available at presstime.
Blackwellâ€™s only victory was a 1-0 forfeit decision over Novice.
