PECOS â€” In a display of sheer domination, Big Spring (8-3) defeated Fabens (4-7) 61-21 at Eagle Stadium Friday, earning the bi-district championship for the first time since 2009.
There were no pivotal moments which served as turning points in momentum â€” the Steers simply dominated in all phases of the game from the opening kickoff, amassing more than 650 yards of total offense while keeping the Wildcats stymied with smothering defense.
COLORADO CITY â€” It was a hard-fought game, but Forsan (4-7) lost to Windthorst (5-5) 20-14 Friday, ending the Buffaloes' up-and-down season in the bi-district round of the postseason.
The Buffs played well for much of the game, outgaining Windthorst by more than 100 total yards and led 14-7 at the start of the fourth quarter.
It wasn't a lack of offensive or defensive skill which slowed Forsan down, but errors coming at inopportune times, according to FHS Head Coach Jason Phillips.
SNYDER â€” The Lady Steers (30-13) rallied Friday at the Coliseum after falling in the first two sets to top Springtown (32-8) 22-25, 19-25, 25-17, 25-16, 15-13, claiming the regional semifinal championship in the process.
The win also set up a chance at redemption against District 4-3A rival Wylie (32-9), which is ranked No. 4 in the state by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. A win would crown Big Spring the regional champions and set up a state title run.
