SNYDER â€“ The Big Spring High School Steers knew heading into their showdown with the Snyder Tigers that they needed two things. They needed to play better defensively and they needed a win in order to get their District 3-4A schedule off to a good start.
The Steers accomplished both goals in grand fashion on Friday night.
The Sands High School Mustangs always knew they could move the ball and put up points. It was just a matter of when everyone would get healthy and click at the same time. That time came on Friday night in Loop.
Normally, the Forsan High School Buffaloes like to spread the ball around, using a spread attack to generate astronomical numbers. Fridayâ€™s District 2-3A opener at Buffalo Stadium was anything but normal.
