Fouke coach was at a loss for words

Fouke girls coach Mo Williams was speechless for several minutes after Saturday night’s incredible win.

“Laykin just heaved it up there with two players in her face and time running out,” said Williams. “It really shouldn’t have gone in, but it did. I don’t know what else to say. Both teams played so hard. It really boiled down to who was gong to have the ball last.”
