Forsan set to take on Bushland

Forsan High School, fresh off a bi-district title, will take on a tough Bushland squad at 7 p.m. Thursday at Lubbock Cooper.

The best-of-three area playoff will continue with a second game at noon Friday at the same location, followed by a third game — if necessary — 30 minutes after Game 2.

“They went to the state tournament last year, so they are a solid team all-around,” Forsan Coach Jason Phillips said this morning. “They hit the ball really well. We are going to have to play one of our best games and I think if we do that, we have a good chance to win.”
