Area basketball: Forsan boys win, but Lady Buffs stumble at Roosevelt

Coahoma boys COAHOMA — Coahoma head coach Kim Nichols continues to stress putting four quarters together as the Bulldogs dropped a District 3-2A contest to Denver City at home.Tanner Ruiz’s 16 points weren’t enough to keep the Bulldogs around in this game. The Bulldogs cut a deficit to seven twice late in the game, but Denver City was just too much. Things haven’t exactly gone the Bulldogs’ way so far in district play with injuries, among other things, ailing the team, but Nichols said his group is still positive about halfway through district play.Denver City 54, Coahoma 40Denver City 22 10 8 14 - 54Coahoma 20 3 7 10 – 40Coahoma — Molina 2, Ruiz 16, Acevedo 4, Williams 3, Cravens 4, Ryan Reid 3, Reagan Reid 2, Echavarria 63-point field goals — Coahoma 3 (Ruiz 1, Acevedo 1, Ryan Reid 1)Records: Coahoma (9-12,1-5)Next game: Coahoma vs. Post at 7:30 p.m. Friday in PostCoahoma girlsCOAHOMA — The Coahoma Bulldogettes were without Lynzi Ferrell and Minnie Goodblanket, but head coach Mitzi Bell wasn’t disappointed with the 39-27 loss to Denver City Tuesday night. With a young lineup on the floor, the head coach said she was proud of the way her players battled. A 22-7 second quarter in favor of Denver City hurt them, however.Still, the Bulldogettes would like to have Ferrell and Goodblanket back, who are both injured.
