Stanton clinches playoff spot, Forsan falls to 1-4 in district play

October 29, 2010

STANTON — With a playoff spot on the line, the Stanton Buffaloes took care of business.

Stanton's 42-20 win over Forsan Friday in Stanton clinched a playoff spot for head coach John Peterson's squad. The Buffs earned the last spot right behind Idalou and Coahoma (those two teams play for a possible share of the district title next week). Stanton will finish up at Anson in Week 10.

“This is one of the goals we've had all year,” Peterson said. “Of course, we want to finish it out with another victory against Anson. This puts us in the playoffs, now we'll finish out the season next week.”

Buffs vs. Buffs: Stanton hosts Forsan

October 29, 2010

No one for Stanton is paying attention to Forsan's 61-0 loss to Idalou and 56-0 loss to Coahoma the past two weeks.

Stanton head coach John Peterson knows when the Forsan Buffaloes get a shot at his Buffaloes, the same team that took those two losses won't be on the field. Forsan will be better than its record shows, he said.

“It's a rivalry game,” Peterson said. “We were both in Class A together the last couple of years. I know the Forsan are going to get up to play for us.

Gardner, seniors push Coahoma to playoffs

October 29, 2010

COAHOMA — Coahoma has always been home for head coach Trey Gardner. When the alumnae was hired in June, he let it be known that not much had changed.

“Somebody when they first hired me said, 'Welcome to being a Bulldog,'” he said. “I told them, 'I've been a Bulldog for a very, very long time.' I never quit being a Bulldog.”

With that proclamation in mind, it's only fitting Gardner is the coach to get the Bulldogs back in the playoffs after two consecutive 5-5 seasons.

Steers use bye week to work on fundamentals

October 29, 2010

The Big Spring Steers have gone back to basics on their off week. No preparation for Snyder, no injuries to worry about, no pondering on the loss at Abilene Wylie, just the basics.

It's worked out well for head coach Phillip Ritchey and the Steers, too.
Ritchey said this week has given the Steers a chance to bring players from the freshman and junior varsity teams into practice, with the goal being to expose the younger players to what goes on in a varsity practice.
It's somewhat new for the Steers, Ritchey said, but something coaches want to be able to do often.
