The Yarbrough Lobos made their own bed and then had to lay in it. As the last place team in the district they had the choice to play Tyrone or No.1 Forgan in the first round of the district playoffs. What they ended up laying in was a 102-point loss that was mercifully no worse, 128-26.
After just one quarter of play, Forgan led 51-4.
“We ran our man pressure for the first quarter, and rotated all our players in,” Bulldogs coach Todd Kerr said. “In the second we ran our halfcourt man, in the third we played a 2-3 zone and in the fourth we played our second five exclusively and never left the paint.”
Forgan only has 10 total players so after their starting five, it only leaves the next five to substitute.
At half the score was 79-5, and after three quarters 112-9.
The entire second half was played with a running clock.
Forgan was 42 of 57 from 2-point range, 14 of 37 from 3-point range, and 2 of 4 at the line.
Forgan (22-1) will face Tyrone (13-8) Saturday for the district championship.
