Steers, Lady Steers lose wild games at home

January 5, 2013

Big Spring

Boys

The crowd at Steer Gym on Friday wasn't happy with the officiating late in the game, which drew boos from Big Spring natives who thought a couple of traveling calls were omitted for Lubbock Cooper, while the Steers were being unfairly called for fouls.

In the end, the Pirates held on to defeat the Steers 59-51.
Cooper's Brent Carlson made 14-of-18 free throws during the game and the Pirates never relinquished the lead.

After a see-saw first half, the Steers found themselves trailing by 12 with under three minutes to play in the third stanza.
