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

Big Spring Herald - - COMICS - 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.
