The Plowboys opened the scoring early when Max Nemir scooped up an Eldorado fumble and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown. The extra-point kick failed, but the Plowboys were up 6-0. Eldorado came right back and drove down the field, scoring on a 15-yard pass. Their extra-point kick was also no good, and the score was tied 6-6.
However, the Plowboys answered less than a minute later when Brayden Beal hit Kevin Lavalais with a pass that was good for 39 yards and another Plowboy TD. Once again the attempted extra-point kick failed, making the score 12-6 Roscoe. That ended the scoring for the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Eldorado tied the score on an 8-yard run. Once again their extra-point attempt was no good, and at halftime the score was 12-12.
Roscoe went ahead to stay on the opening drive of the third quarter when quarterback Brayden Beal broke free on a 49-yard touchdown run. He then passed to Isaiah Gonzales for two extra points, putting the Plowboys out front 20-12. There was no more scoring for the rest of the third quarter or in the fourth, and the Plowboys came away with the victory.
Vincent Pantoja led Roscoe’s rushing with 109 yards in 18 carries. In passing, Brayden Beal completed 15 of 22 for 68 yards and one TD with no interceptions, and Kevin Lavalais led Plowboy receivers with 3 catches for 44 yards and one TD.
The Plowboys are now 2-3 on the season. They have an open date this Friday and will return to Plowboy Field for their opening district game with Miles next Friday, October 10.
