Farwell falls to Roscommon
By Ben Murphy
Too much Brett Jobin. Too little everything else. Jobin and the Roscommon Bucks ran over host Farwell in Jack Pine Conference football on Friday night, as the Eagles fell 47-13.
“Once again the kids played tough, we just ran into a tough Roscommon team,” Farwell head coach Alan Esterline said. “We had a few key turnovers in key situations and that hurt.”
The Bucks raced ahead 12-0 after the first quarter on two long rushing touchdowns, though Farwell made it 12-7 on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Curtis Robinson to Seth Baginski.
Roscommon scored again before the half to make it 20-7 at the break and added another touchdown in the third to lead 27-7 entering the fourth.
The Bucks scored two more times before Farwell’s Noah Wilson ran in from two yards out, though Roscommon scored again late to bring the final to 47-13.
Wilson finished with 121 yards rushing and one touchdown on 28 carries and Baginski had 48 rushing yards on six tries and also had the 23-yard touchdown reception.
Robinson finished three-of-10 passing for 56 yards.
Wilson led the defense with 10 tackles, Walter Mosby had seven, Dustin Weber and Baginski both had six.
Farwell (1-4 overall, 0-3 JPC) hosts Clare (3-2, 3-0) tonight (Friday). The Pioneers are coming off a 30-13 win over Gladwin last week. The Pioneers have won every regular season meeting of the Five-Mile Rivalry since 1999. Farwell’s last regular season win in the series came in a 29-7 win in 1998, though the Eagles won the playoff meeting in 2010. Clare won last year’s contest 37-6.
