The Crossroads area football playoff pairings have been finalized.
Big Spring (7-3) will be facing Fabens (4-6) in Pecos on Friday at 7:30 p.m. If the Steers can rebound from Friday's 31-0 loss against Monahans and knock Fabens out of contention, they could again face Andrews (4-6) â€” which they defeated 61-38 in predistrict play â€” in the area round, should the Mustangs come out ahead of Borger (3-7).
The road will get a bit harder for BSHS if it can make it to the regional quarterfinal round. At that point, the Steers would likely face Stephenville (8-1) â€” the defending 3A champion.
For the first time in 23 years, Big Spring had a chance to claim at least a share of the district championship Friday at Memorial Stadium.
It wasn't the Steers' night.
District foe Monahans ended up winning the title with a 31-0 rout of Big Spring.
Hardly the end to an otherwise stellar season the Steers and Head Coach Phillip Ritchey had hoped for.
But this time around, instead of being forced to wait an entire year to for a shot redemption, BSHS only has to wait a few days, as it will be in the playoffs taking on Fabens â€” the first postseason appearance since 2009.
MIDLAND â€” Not only are the Lady Steers headed to the regional volleyball tournament, they overcame a huge obstacle by the name of Monahans to get there.
Big Spring (29-13) started off strong. Unwilling to let rival Monahans defeat them for the third time this season, the Lady Steers took the first set 25-20 and turned in an even stronger performance in the second set, winning 25-15.
