Forsan down Bulldogettes in softball showdown

April 6, 2011

COAHOMA — The Forsan Lady Buffaloes have a specific script for success they must follow this softball season.

Unlike the past two state championship teams, this year's squad is not packed with star power and therefore has a smaller margin of error. To succeed, their coach said, the Lady Buffs have to combine good defense with timely hitting and throw in a pinch of pitching if they are going to have any chance of duplicating their past success.
So far, so good.
