Forsan falls to Stanton

November 1, 2011

FORSAN — In a surprising display of defensive fortitude, The Stanton Buffaloes have caught up with the Forsan Buffaloes in the playoff race after defeating their district rivals 23-13 Friday night.

Unfortunately for both squads the tie is for fourth place in the district. Stanton and Forsan both stand at 2-3 in district play behind Hawley (3-2). Of course, Idalou and Coahoma are sitting pretty on top of the district, both without a district loss, but that will change Friday night when the two teams meet for the district championship.
