DE LEON — Roscoe produced a few eye-popping offensive stats against the De Leon Bearcats on Friday in its first game under new head coach Jake Freeman.
Quarterback Cutter Davila completed a whopping 35 of 46 passes for 389 yards and two touchdowns. And his favorite passing target against the Bearcats, Shelton Toliver, caught 16 balls for 130 yards.
But despite their heroics, plus another 100-yard receiving effort by Kevin Lavalais (5 catches for 115 yards and one TD), the Plowboys weren’t able to pull off the victory.
While Roscoe was much more competitive than the previous year’s opening game — which the Bearcats won 38-6 in Sweetwater at the Sammy Baugh Classic — De Leon still prevailed on Friday by a score of 34-21.
Jesus Leanos also had a big night for the Plowboys, catching six passes for 78 yards and recording seven tackles and an interception on defense, while Zack Longoria had five tackles, two for a loss, while forcing one fumble and recovering another. Vincent Aguayo finished with two catches for Roscoe, which was hurt by four interceptions.
Freeman and his team will be hoping for a better result this Friday, when the Plowboys take on Irion County at 7:30 p.m. in their home opener.
