FORSAN â€” Coahoma's homecoming was thwarted by the rain and its game moved to Forsan's more accomodating artificial turf as the endless rain Friday made a mess of Bulldog Stadium. Homecoming activities were postponed until the Stanton game, which is slated for Oct. 12.
Last night, The Bulldogs hosted undefeated Ballinger and the Bearcats mauled Coahoma 21-0.
The loss was Coahoma's third straight as Head Coach Trey Gardner's team has been battling a host of injuries to key players on offense and defense.
Memorial Stadium was awash in sheets of rain Friday as Big Spring hosted Seminole for its last predistrict bout.
The Steers allowed two late scores, but the Indians' rally wasn't enough as Big Spring â€” who recorded an 0-10 record last season â€” improved to 5-0 after a sloppy 29-19 victory.
The rain â€” which didn't let up throughout the entire evening â€” made the game a bit more interesting than BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey may have wanted at times.
