SNYDER â€” After scoring a touchdown on its opening possession â€” a 31-yard run from sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill â€” it appeared Big Spring was eager to redeem last week's District 4-3A opening loss against a Abilene Wylie with a convincing victory over the Snyder Tigers on the road.
Instead, costly Steer turnovers and a handful of momentum-changing plays resulted in Big Spring coming away with their second loss of the season and a 0-2 conference record as Snyder outlasted the Steers 31-21.
SONORA â€” It's been a long time coming, but Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner and his squad of Bulldogs finally pulled off a win â€” their first since the second week of the season â€” and it couldn't have come at a better time.
The banged-up, but hard-fighting Bulldogs traveled to Sonora and came home with a 27-21 victory over the powerful Broncos to even their district record to 1-1 and hopefully boosting the confidence of a team that has been embroiled with injuries since the season began.
