Crossroads teams brace for playoffs

November 13, 2013

The Crossroads area football playoff pairings have been finalized.

Big Spring (7-3) will be facing Fabens (4-6) in Pecos on Friday at 7:30 p.m. If the Steers can rebound from Friday's 31-0 loss against Monahans and knock Fabens out of contention, they could again face Andrews (4-6) — which they defeated 61-38 in predistrict play — in the area round, should the Mustangs come out ahead of Borger (3-7).

The road will get a bit harder for BSHS if it can make it to the regional quarterfinal round. At that point, the Steers would likely face Stephenville (8-1) — the defending 3A champion.

Steers close out season with loss to Monahans, move on to face Fabens in bi-district

November 13, 2013

For the first time in 23 years, Big Spring had a chance to claim at least a share of the district championship Friday at Memorial Stadium.
It wasn't the Steers' night.

District foe Monahans ended up winning the title with a 31-0 rout of Big Spring.

Hardly the end to an otherwise stellar season the Steers and Head Coach Phillip Ritchey had hoped for.

But this time around, instead of being forced to wait an entire year to for a shot redemption, BSHS only has to wait a few days, as it will be in the playoffs taking on Fabens — the first postseason appearance since 2009.
