ROSCOE — The Hamlin Pied Pipers proved to be a major roadblock to the Roscoe Plowboys’ 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 Plowboys’ 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 teams’ 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 team’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.
