Coahoma junior Aaron Acevedo hit the ground running Friday night and never let up, as the Bulldogs defeated Post 47-29 in District 2-2A action. The speedy back rushed for 198 yards and four touchdowns as Coahoma improved to 4-3 on the season and a perfect 3-0 in district.
â€śWe really weren't sure if Aaron was going to play,â€ť Coahoma's head coach, Trey Gardner said. â€śHe had hurt his elbow last week and he did not practice until Wednesday.â€ť
In a close, wind-blown game Friday night, the Forsan Buffaloes improved their record to 5-1 (2-0 in district) by defeating the Anson Tigers 28-20.
Forsan's head coach, Jason Phillips hit the nail on the head earlier this week when he said Anson was the best 0-6 team around, warning his players not to overlook the Tigers. His words would prove prophetic as Anson matched Forsan in just about every offensive category during this district match-up.
â€śWe knew they would be better than their record indicated,â€ť Coach Phillips said. â€śThey got after us pretty hard in this one.â€ť
Garrett Stuteville dove over the goal line on a one yard run early in the second quarter to tie the game at 7-7, but it would be the lone score for the Steers, as Big Spring falls in their district opener 38-7.
Stuteville's score came as a result of an interception by Lukas Falcon, as the Steers defense held the powerful running game of Brownwood close during the first half.
â€śThat seems to be our M.O.,â€ť Big Spring's head coach Phillip Ritchey said. â€śWe can keep them close for a half.â€ť
