Casual cooking with Kris

January 13, 2011

Welcoming readers to my world where I enjoy simple, sometimes quick, but always delicious meals.

Stanton girls, boys steal wins at Forsan

January 12, 2011

FORSAN — Forsan girls’ basketball coach Robert Hillger didn’t have much explanation for Tuesday’s 44-41 loss to Stanton at home.

He said Stanton beat Forsan fair and square.

“I couldn’t figure out our identity Tuesday. At the beginning of the game, really the first half, we’re pushing and running and they’re making shots and we’re not. We like to push and run and we were down five (at the half) anyway, so I was like ‘Alright, we’re going to slow down the pace of the game. We’re going to dictate what we want to do and not let them dictate what we want to do.”
