FORT STOCKTON - The Big Spring Steers halted a 12-game losing streak stretching back two years as they opened the 2012 football season with a 49-0 thumping of Fort Stockton Friday night.
Game details will be in the weekend edition of the Herald.
MIDLAND â€” Howard County rivals Forsan and Coahoma met Thursday at the ASCO Football Madness opener at Grande Communications Stadium, in what was the first football game played in the state for the 2012 season.
The Buffaloes and Bulldogs battled through early afternoon heat, cramps and dehydration issues, and a scoreboard that failed during the first quarter, leaving both teams coaches to manage the time without an official time clock.
When the smoke cleared, Forsan was the victor, narrowly defeating Coahoma â€” who won least year's meeting by a point â€” 30-27.
The Lady Steers improved their volleyball record to 6-4 Tuesday after back-to-back wins over Lubbock High and Andrews.
With a tough, non-district schedule, BSHS Head Coach Lynn Osborne said in an earlier interview that her team â€śMay rack up quite a few losses,â€ť before district action begins in Sept. The Lady Steers, however, have now won four straight matches.
Individual statistics from Tuesday's games are as follows:
Vs. Lubbock High â€” 15-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-21
The Coahoma Bulldogs have a new attitude this year.
Now in his third year as head football coach, Trey Gardner is not just hoping for a third straight playoff appearance, he wants to move beyond bi-district â€” which is as far as his squads have gotten thus far.
â€śWhat we are building off of this year is what I call 'And then some'.,â€ť Gardner said. â€śWe want to win â€” win district, then keep playing.â€ť
In 2010, the Bulldogs played, according to Gardner, â€śLike we were just happy to be there,â€ť.
Coahoma fell to the Spearman Lynx.
