COAHOMA â Morgan Forsheeâs 20 points were the catalyst for Forsanâs 45-38 win over the Coahoma Bulldogettes Tuesday.
Coahoma head coach Mitzi Bell said her team played well in the first half and let its defense take control, but the Bulldogettes couldnât keep it going in the second half.
Forsan head coach Robert Hillger said Forsheeâs big night was a one reason the Lady Buffs were able to steal a win on the road.
âI need to give a ton of credit to coach Bell at Coahoma,â he said. âShe really had her kids ready to play and had a great game plan and executed it very well in the first half. We were frustrated and couldnât throw it in the ocean in the first half. Fortunately for us, we were able to make some shots in the second half, led by Morgan Forshee.â
Forshee ended the game with five 3-pointers as Coahoma dropped to 3-7 in District 3-2A play.
