Girls basketball: Lady Steers cruise past Cooper 45-35

November 15, 2010

All the Big Spring Lady Steers needed was a spark to fend off Abilene Cooper in a 45-35 win Saturday in Steer Gym.

The Lady Steers’ mishaps and turnovers prevented them from gaining a substantial lead over Cooper, but they were in a tied game 24-24 as the third quarter was coming to an end.

That spark they needed came in the form of a 10-2 run, thanks to clutch shooting from Cerbi Ritchey, Valerie Ross and Mackenzie Stone.

Spearman’s Meddock, defense ends CHS’ season

November 14, 2010

PLAINVIEW — By the middle of Coahoma’s bi-district playoffs game against Spearman Friday in Plainview, the Bulldogs knew if they were going to win, it was going to be in comeback fashion.

All the pieces started fitting together for that to happen, too. Jason Martinez punched the ball in for a score to cut the Lynx lead to 13, Coahoma’s defense forced a three-and-out on the next drive and suddenly, the Bulldogs were driving down the field for a second score.

Fulton leads Stanton past Abernathy

November 14, 2010

SEMINOLE — Stanton is known for defense and physical play in the trenches.

The Buffaloes still had that in their 30-6 win over Abernathy Friday in Seminole in bi-district playoff action. They just had the passing to go along with it.

“We didn’t know what to expect in a first-round playoff game,” Stanton head coach John Peterson said. “Everybody’s hungry to stay in the playoffs. Abernathy did a great job of trying to take away our run, so we adjusted a little bit, started throwing the ball.”

Ira’s Morris too much for Grady Wildcats in 56-43 loss

November 14, 2010

The Grady Wildcats knew they had to accomplish two things in order to win their six-man playoff game with Ira — they had to capitalize on their scoring opportunities and they had to contain Ira’s Lance Morris.

Unfortunately for the ‘Cats, they didn’t succeed on either front and ended up dropping a 56-43 decision Friday night in Memorial Stadium.

GCHS ousts Robert Lee in bi-district action

November 12, 2010

ROBERT LEE — When Robert Lee’s Foster Allen caught a 6-yard pass from Justin Gartman to give the Steers a 16-14 lead over defending state champion Garden City, the emotion and excitement was clear on their sideline.

But the composure and calmness was evident on Garden City’s sideline.
Thanks to key picks, big runs from Josh Colunga and a stout second-half defensive performance, the Bearkats fought off an early rally from Robert Lee to thump the Steers 66-20 in bi-district playoff action Thursday in Robert Lee.

Coahoma attempts to erase recent playoff woes

November 12, 2010

COAHOMA — Coahoma head coach Trey Gardner describes playoff time like some children describe their favorite holiday.

After all, he has said making it to the playoffs is like Christmas coming early for him.

But the Bulldogs are hoping the joy doesn’t end so soon when they take on Spearman in bi-district playoff action at 8 p.m. today in Plainview.
Coahoma’s last appearance in the playoffs was in 2007, but their last win was in 2003.

Defense key in Stanton-Abernathy matchup

November 12, 2010

STANTON — The playoffs were already in hand, but Stanton didn’t want to end the season with a loss at Anson. It looked like the Buffaloes were going to have to abort that plan, down 15 at halftime.

The Buffs never wavered though, scoring 36 unanswered points in the second half to win in Week 10.

Undefeated Ira on tap for Grady in playoffs

November 12, 2010

LENORAH — Things are already tough for Grady as the bi-district round of the UIL state football playoffs begin.

The 10-0 Ira Bulldogs will aim to end the Wildcats' playoff run immediately at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Memorial Stadium here in Big Spring.

Sounds like a tall order for the Wildcats to knock off a team that hasn't lost all season, but head coach Brad Cox isn't rattled by the thought of facing an undefeated team to start the playoffs.

He and the Wildcats are excited and, honestly, accustomed to having to beat the odds.

November 11, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Garden City running back Josh Colunga provided words to live by as the Bearkats defend their six-man Division I state championship.

“I want another ring,” he said. “The best ring is the next one. That’s what we’re trying to go for. That’s our goal this year. Try to tell everyone we’re still No. 1.”

If they already haven’t, the Bearkats have the opportunity to continue proving they’re the team to beat against Robert Lee at 7:30 p.m. today at Robert Lee High School in Robert Lee in bi-district playoff action.
