Forsan looking to extend winning streak to three, travel to Reagan County Friday

- By SHAWN MORAN Herald Sports Writer

Forsan was victorious for the second straight week following their thrilling 31-30 overtime victory over the McCamey Badgers on the road last Friday night.

After scoring the go-ahead toucdown in overtime, the Forsan defense made a crucial, clutch stop when McCamey went for a two-point converstio­n following their own touchdown.

The Buffs’ offense has been muchimprov­ed over the last two weeks and they have begun to put up points after a tough start to the season being matched up against the strong defenses of Coahoma and Post in the first two weeks.

“We’ve executed better and up-front has been the big difference,” Head Coach 310 N. St. Peter • Stanton • 432-607-2516

Jason Phillips said. “Our offensive line has really molded over the last couple of weeks and especially during that second half against McCamey. We were able to impose our will on them and we were firing off of the ball extremely hard and were moving the line of scrimmage. It was a lot of fun to watch.”

The running back duo of Nate Hernandez and Chris Mendez, along with quarterbac­k Major Stockton, followed that offensive line for a total of 312 yards rushing. Mendez led the way with 20 rushes for 166 yards and one touchdown while Hernandez had 19 carries of his own for 105 yards and three scores. Stockton was a consistent threat throughout the night with his legs as well and finished the game with 38 yards on nine carries behind the strong Forsan offensive line.
