COAHOMA â€” Morgan Forsheeâ€™s 20 points were the catalyst for Forsanâ€™s 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 couldnâ€™t keep it going in the second half.
Forsan head coach Robert Hillger said Forsheeâ€™s big night was a one reason the Lady Buffs were able to steal a win on the road.
â€śI need to give a ton of credit to coach Bell at Coahoma,â€ť he said. â€śShe 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 couldnâ€™t 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€ť
Forshee ended the game with five 3-pointers as Coahoma dropped to 3-7 in District 3-2A play.
