Roscoe/LM's Joseph Gould goes aloft to haul in a 14-yard TD pass from quarterback Brenden Ryder in the second quarter of Roscoe/LM's 40-0 win over Tri-Valley.

Unbeaten Roscoe/LM rolls over T-V to clinch berth in Eight-Man title game

Demolition Crew

By Richard RossRoscoe 40
Tri-Valley 0

ROSCOE -- “To everything there is a season,” begins the oft-quoted lines from Ecclesiastes which affirm that with time, there comes inevitable change.
For the Roscoe /Livingston Manor Blue Devils, the time of being beaten by other teams, most notably Tri-Valley over the past years of the Bears' dominance is now over. With a ferocious brand of hard-hitting, physical football, Roscoe/LM jumped on their visitors early and never let up as they barnstormed to their second shutout win in a row, pounding the shocked Bears 40-0 one week after beating Fallsburg 38-0.
Seventy-eight points of balanced offense featured deft running and passing authored by a host of contributors coupled with a fierce defense that yielded no points over eight quarters.
Yes, Virginia, Roscoe has arrived and this is their season at long last.
The win assured the undefeated Blue Devils who were most assuredly watched over by the angelic presence of Fred Ahart, a berth in the Section 9 Eight-Man Football title game on April 24. Their opponent is yet to be determined but with a win next week over Eldred, Roscoe will probably claim home field advantage.
