A formidable task set before them going in turned into the Roos most difficult loss of the season as Arlington Lamar quarterback Shane Buechele passed for seven touchdowns and rushed for another as the Vikings beat Weatherford 68-14 Friday in a District 4-6A game at Cravens Field.
Buechele completed 89 percent of his passes and found five receivers in the end zone with Landry Bray and Kofi Boateng notching two apiece. Buechele passed for six touchdowns and ran for another to give Lamar a 48-7 lead in the first half.
Lamar had 509 yards in the first half, compared with 55 for Weatherford.
Buechele was 25 for 28 with 465 yards. Running back Ali Lancaster added a 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter.
This week, the Roos (3-6, 0-6) will close out the regular season hoping to at least capture one district win when Arlington Bowie visits Kangaroos Stadium.
Weatherford’s senior players will be recognized. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m.
