Forsan High School, fresh off a bi-district title, will take on a tough Bushland squad at 7 p.m. Thursday at Lubbock Cooper.
The best-of-three area playoff will continue with a second game at noon Friday at the same location, followed by a third game â€” if necessary â€” 30 minutes after Game 2.
â€śThey went to the state tournament last year, so they are a solid team all-around,â€ť Forsan Coach Jason Phillips said this morning. â€śThey hit the ball really well. We are going to have to play one of our best games and I think if we do that, we have a good chance to win.â€ť
Forsan, 22-6, comes into the contest after an impressive bi-district showing in which the Buffs defeated Torino 14-4 and 13-1 in run-rule games.
The victor of the bi-district series between Forsan and Bushland advances to the Class 2A regional quarterfinals.
