Forney High Lady Rabbits vs. #1 Poteet Pirates Our Girls give the visitors all they can handle!
Poteet Girls are probably “continuing their march to the 13-5A Championship,” as Mesquite News proclaimed recently, but the Undefeatedin-District Pirates stumbled for a while against the Lady Rabbits Friday night.
Forney trailed only 8—11 at the end of quarter one and could easily have been leading if the obvious foul on our girl driving to the basket had been called near the buzzer. But that is how the game goes, and those things usually “equal out in the end.” At the half, Forney trailed 21—31 but was still looking strong and “in the game.” 34—51 was the score after three, and the final was 46—58. The middle of game was a “killer” as far as our team was concerned!
I journeyed not very far from my house to the FHS gymnasium, said hello to WMS Teacher/Coach and gate keeper/ticket taker, Angelica Sosa (former fellow educator), stopped at the Concession Stand to greet Flora Williams, Bianca Hendrix, Lilly Desmond (Forney Girls Basketball Booster Club), and talked briefly to Owen DeLange, Carter DeLange (baby), Jenna DeLange, and Parker DeLange (baby) in the lobby.
