'Birdie' debuts this weekend

November 14, 2010

Care for a bit of Birdie?

The Big Spring High School drama and choir departments will team up this weekend to present “An Evening of Bye Bye Birdie” in the high school auditorium.

Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is free but donations will be accepted.

The students will perform excerpts from the popular Broadway musical, in which a famous rock star (think Elvis Presley circa 1958) travels to a small town in Ohio to make his farewell TV performance before being drafted into the Army.

Spearman’s Meddock, defense ends CHS’ season

November 14, 2010

PLAINVIEW — By the middle of Coahoma’s bi-district playoffs game against Spearman Friday in Plainview, the Bulldogs knew if they were going to win, it was going to be in comeback fashion.

All the pieces started fitting together for that to happen, too. Jason Martinez punched the ball in for a score to cut the Lynx lead to 13, Coahoma’s defense forced a three-and-out on the next drive and suddenly, the Bulldogs were driving down the field for a second score.

Fulton leads Stanton past Abernathy

November 14, 2010

SEMINOLE — Stanton is known for defense and physical play in the trenches.

The Buffaloes still had that in their 30-6 win over Abernathy Friday in Seminole in bi-district playoff action. They just had the passing to go along with it.

“We didn’t know what to expect in a first-round playoff game,” Stanton head coach John Peterson said. “Everybody’s hungry to stay in the playoffs. Abernathy did a great job of trying to take away our run, so we adjusted a little bit, started throwing the ball.”

Ira’s Morris too much for Grady Wildcats in 56-43 loss

November 14, 2010

The Grady Wildcats knew they had to accomplish two things in order to win their six-man playoff game with Ira — they had to capitalize on their scoring opportunities and they had to contain Ira’s Lance Morris.

Unfortunately for the ‘Cats, they didn’t succeed on either front and ended up dropping a 56-43 decision Friday night in Memorial Stadium.
