FORSAN â Once Borden Countyâs score brought the Coyotes within two of Garden City with 22 seconds left, the Bearkats were thinking overtime.
They didnât see a fumbled snap on Borden Countyâs conversion attempt after that score coming.
âWhen they had a bad snap, I was just âGolly, I canât believe that,ââ Garden City head coach Vance Jones said after the 44-42 win. âIt was just an awesome game.â
SWEETWATER â Defense just wasnât enough this time for the Stanton Buffaloes.
Holliday upended the Buffs run in the area round of the UIL football playoffs Friday in Sweetwater 16-0.
All the Eagles needed was two touchdown runs from Tyler Cole and a safety to move on in the playoffs behind a defense that limited Stantonâs best option on offense.
âThey took our running game away from us,â head coach John Peterson said. âThey were aggressive. We came out and gave it everything we had. It just wasnât the best Friday night.â
Odessa Permian 71
Big Spring 65
Big Spring guard Luke Adams scored 42 points as the Steers dropped a close game to Odessa Permian at home.
A lot of Adamsâ points came from solid free-throw shooting. The senior hit 18-of-19 shots from the free-throw line. Regardless, Adams performance impressed first-year head coach Cliff Thompson. Right behind Adams was Tristain Clay with 13 points.
Adams and Clay were also the top two scorers in the Steersâ season-opening win over Fort Stockton. Thompson said those two are turning out to be the go-to players as others continue to develop.
