The drought is over. The Steer faithful â€” as well as Head Coach Phillip Ritchey â€” finally celebrated a district win after two straight seasons without one, as Big Spring (5-2, 1-1) defeated Snyder 42-14 at Memorial Stadium.
â€śI feel a ton lighter,â€ť Ritchey said of the win. â€śIt's a big load off our backs. It was a humongous win for us. It was one of the best games we've played in a long time. From start to finish. We picked up momentum at the Wylie game and brought it over to the this one. Hopefully it will keep snowballing.â€ť
