ROSCOE — Say this for Roscoe. The Plowboys may not be winning all the time like they used to — at least not yet — but when they do, they leave little doubt.
And Friday’s 71-8 romp over Gorman was as domi-nating a victory as any that Roscoe fans have seen in quite awhile.
More importantly, the big win keeps the Plowboys (4-4 overall, 3-2 district) in strong contention for a playoff spot in District 7-1A, Division II with two games left to play.
Roscoe is now in a three-way tie for third place with Cross Plains — which lost to Hamlin on Friday — and Roby, which defeated Ran-ger 54-6. Roscoe lost to Cross Plains 56-31 in its second district game, but has yet to face Roby. The teams will meet Nov. 8 in the final game of the season.
Roscoe’s next foe, howev-er, is Hamlin, the district co-leader at 5-0 along with Albany. Hamlin and Alba-ny will play Nov. 8 in their season finale.
Strangely, Roscoe trailed 8-0 against Gorman on Fri-day before scoring the last 71 points.
Quarterback Cutter Dav-ila threw his first of four touchdown passes to begin the comeback. His 69-yarder to Jesus Leanos, followed by Max Nemir’s 2-point conversion run, tied the game at 8. Then Davila fired a 27-yard scoring strike to Rafael Aguayo which gave Roscoe the lead for good and made it 15-8 at the end of the first quarter.
Roscoe added 28 points in the second period, giving the Plowboys a 43-6 lead at halftime. Davila had scoring runs of 48 and 10 yards and threw to Leanos for another touchdown, and Nemir scored the other TD on a fumble recovery in Gorman’s end zone.
Davila continued to work his magic in the third quar-ter, throwing a 38-yard pass to Shelton Toliver to begin the scoring. Brayden Beal’s 49-yard run made it 57-8 later in the period, and the fouth quarter scores came from Aguayo on a 1-yard run and Juan Sanchez, alo on a 1-yard run.
Davila had 233 yards pas-sing on just nine comple-tions. Beal led rushers with 130 yards, and Davila had 81 yards rushing.
