Roscoe and Highland set the stage for a first-place showdown in Highland on Tuesday as both teams won their games on Friday. But Roscoe (3-0, 11-9) was the only one to play a district game as the Plowgirls beat Ira 45-39. Highland (17-2) is also 3-0 in District 13-A, Division II, but its victory over Loraine â€” which has forfeited its varsity games â€” came by default.
