September 8, 2011

Steers take tough loss

August 30, 2011

The Big Spring Steers kicked off their 2011 season in a tough defensive battle against Fort Stockton Friday night. In spite of moving the ball well and smothering the Panther offense, the Steers ended the night on the short end of a 7-6 game.

After falling behind 7-0 in the first frame, the Steers had to play catch-up the rest of the game and it wasn't until there was only 2:09 left in the game, following a long, sustained drive, that Michael Oliva pounded his way into the end zone for what appeared to be a game-tying score.

Coahoma falls

August 26, 2011

Even a storm strong enough to delay the start of the game for an hour and a half was not enough to keep things cool in Midland Thursday night, as tempers flew late in the game between Coahoma and Greenwood.
A bad call by the refs, a personal foul and, for a moment, it looked like both sidelines were going to meeting the middle of the field. However, cooler heads prevailed and the last two minutes of the game were played out, leaving Coahoma on the short side of the 50-35 tempest.

Hard-hitting Coahoma leaves impression

August 19, 2011

The Coahoma Bulldogs seemed to get off to a slow start in Thursday night’s scrimmage against Clyde. Understandable, considering the size of the visiting team.

Even Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner commented on the size of the opposition.

“When we walked out, it looked like the field was slanted to one side,” Coach Gardner said.

But the size factor did not stay in play long as the hometown Bulldogs kept playing their own style of football; they hit everybody and they hit them hard.

Lady Steers find unfriendly foes

August 17, 2011

The Big Spring Lady Steers fell to the Frenship Lady Tigers Tuesday night in four matches, even after an energetic, exciting start. The scores of 23-25, 25-22, 18-25 and 15-25 in no way measured the effort put into this one by the hometown girls. Despite the wave of emotion present at Steer gym, the Lady Tigers got some momentum behind them and never looked back.

After falling behind 7-11 in the first match, Big Spring rallied and tied the game at 15 apiece, then again at 18, before eventually succumbing to the high-flying aerial attack of Frenship and falling 23-25.
