The Forsan varsity softball team made their way to Lubbock Christian High School where they took on Abernathy in a best two out of three series for the Area Championship title. A game three was not needed as the Lady Buffs took the title with a sweep over the Lady Antelopes with final scores of 6-3 in game one, and 11-10 in game two.
“I am extremely proud of our girls and how they played this weekend. I thought both of our pitchers did really well for us against a good hitting team,” said head softball coach Shanna Taylor. “Although we committed more errors than we wanted to in the second game, we fought through the pressure and stayed in it until the end.”
Up Next, the Lady Buffs will hit the road for a playoff series match up against the New Deal Lions, which kicks off on Thursday, May 11 at 6:00 p.m. Game two will be held on Friday, May 12 at 3:00 p.m. A third game will follow if necessary.
