Big Spring senior defensive tackle Pernell Parker, usually a man of few words, didn't have much analysis on the Steers' 41-0 loss to Snyder Friday at Memorial Stadium.
The better team won and for 48 minutes, Snyder proved it.
â€śThey gave it 100 percent every play and never quit,â€ť an emotional Parker said. â€śWe couldn't step up to the plate.â€ť
In a matter of minutes, it became apparent that the odds Big Spring had to overcome to get into the playoffs against Snyder were just too much to ask for.
COAHOMA â€“ Taking advantage every opportunity to score is key against Idalou and Coahoma couldn't exactly do that Friday.
But in a 14-6 loss, the Bulldogs got close to Idalou in a way other District 2-2A Division II teams haven't this season.
â€śWhen we went into this game, our kids thought they could beat them and they went our there and played that way,â€ť head coach Trey Gardner said. â€śIdalou's a great team defensively, they are tremendous, but we're one or two plays away here and there. Reverse a few plays, we might of beat them.â€ť
FORSAN â€• Forsan finally got the win it was searching for after a few down weeks.
The Buffaloes finally got back to scoring a lot of point through the likes of Brendan Roman, Kolten Self and Ty Johnson after a 47-36 win over Hawley to end the season Friday.
The Buffs had taken losses to Idalou, Coahoma and Stanton before Friday's game.
