Plowboys Lose District Opener 37-36
The Roscoe Plowboys suffered their second close home defeat in a row by losing to the Haskell Indians 37-36 at the Roscoe High School gym last night. They lost their previous game to Albany when a Lion player sank a 3-pointer at the final buzzer to pull out a 46-45 victory. Trailing by a point against Haskell, the Plowboys called time out and set up a play that would have won them the game, but the Plowboy guard missed the layup, and time ran out. This defeat hurt even more because it was the district opener for both teams and leaves the Plowboys 0-1 in district play.
The game started well for Roscoe as the Plowboys jumped out to an 8-0 lead, but Haskell came roaring back with three unanswered baskets, and the game was nip and tuck for the rest of the way with first one team and then the other taking the lead. The Plowboys led at halftime 16-15.
Caden Smith was the Plowboys’ high scorer with 14 points while Cody Graham had 9. For Haskell, Myers had 13, and Bird and Llewellyn had 8 each. The Plowboys’ next game is on Friday at Rotan. Their next home game is next Tuesday, January 18, against Hamlin. Both are district games.
