Big Spring senior defensive tackle Pernell Parker, usually a man of few words, didn't have much analysis on the Steers' 41-0 loss to Snyder Friday at Memorial Stadium.
The better team won and for 48 minutes, Snyder proved it.
â€śThey gave it 100 percent every play and never quit,â€ť an emotional Parker said. â€śWe couldn't step up to the plate.â€ť
In a matter of minutes, it became apparent that the odds Big Spring had to overcome to get into the playoffs against Snyder were just too much to ask for.
COAHOMA â€“ Taking advantage every opportunity to score is key against Idalou and Coahoma couldn't exactly do that Friday.
But in a 14-6 loss, the Bulldogs got close to Idalou in a way other District 2-2A Division II teams haven't this season.
â€śWhen we went into this game, our kids thought they could beat them and they went our there and played that way,â€ť head coach Trey Gardner said. â€śIdalou's a great team defensively, they are tremendous, but we're one or two plays away here and there. Reverse a few plays, we might of beat them.â€ť
FORSAN â€• Forsan finally got the win it was searching for after a few down weeks.
The Buffaloes finally got back to scoring a lot of point through the likes of Brendan Roman, Kolten Self and Ty Johnson after a 47-36 win over Hawley to end the season Friday.
The Buffs had taken losses to Idalou, Coahoma and Stanton before Friday's game.
An executive session to consider personnel matters tops the agenda for Howard County commissioners, as the court prepares to meet Monday morning.
According to the meeting agenda, the personnel matter was placed on the agenda by County Judge Mark Barr, who declined to comment on the nature of the session at this time.
â€śI really can't discuss the details beyond what's on the agenda,â€ť Barr said. â€śHowever, I imagine there will be some action taken on the matter once we come out of executive session, so we'll just have to wait and see.â€ť
