Lions roar into Big Spring

October 9, 2011

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.

“That seems to be our M.O.,” Big Spring's head coach Phillip Ritchey said. “We can keep them close for a half.”

Forsan not overlooking Anson

October 6, 2011

For the surging Forsan Buffaloes, seeing an 0-6 Anson Tigers team on their schedule for this week's game must seem too good to be true. Head Coach Jason Phillips says his team has been warned to pay no attention to the big goose egg on Anson's record.

“We have told the team all week not to look at their record,” Coach Phillips said. “They have played some close games and their talent is better than that of an 0-6 team.”

Coahoma hits Post Friday

October 6, 2011

Coming off of a 22-7 victory over undefeated Hawley last week, the Coahoma Bulldogs get ready to face another district challenge, as they host the Post Antelopes Friday night.

Post comes into Bulldog Stadium sporting a 2-4 (1-1) record, gaining their second win of the season last week in a 31-7 handling of district rival Anson.

Steers begin district

October 6, 2011

Coming off of their sixth straight loss this season, the Big Spring Steers welcome the beginning of district play as a new start. While head coach Phillip Ritchey and his coaching staff may be able to salvage some lessons for the Steers out of the losses, the fact that everyone is tied up at 0-0 right now has to be comforting.

“Everything comes down to this time of the year,” Coach Ritchey said. “Starting right now, the games count. We learned a lot of lessons over the stretch of the last six weeks. Now it's time to make the best out of them.”

Steers fall to 0-6

October 4, 2011

The Big Spring Steers broke their normal pattern in Friday night's homecoming loss to Greenwood, playing what coach Ritchey called the best second half they have played all year. Unfortunately for the Steer nation, mistakes in the first half proved to be too much to overcome as the Black and Gold fell 35-14.

“These kids don't quit,” Big Spring head coach Phillip Ritchey said. “This was probably the best second half we have played all year.”

This week's 2A preview

Forsan Buffaloes — Bye week
________
Stanton Buffaloes vs. Idalou Wildcats
7:30 p.m. at Stanton

The 2-3 Stanton Buffaloes will play host to the 3-1 Idalou Wildcats this Friday night in their district home-opener. Last week, the Buffaloes had a win snatched out of their hands in the final seconds by the Coahoma Bulldogs and are now looking to get their first district win.

In order to get it done, they have to get past a Wildcats squad playing their first district game. Idalou had a bye last week and should be pretty well rested from their 38-0 win in Roosevelt Sept. 16.

Steers homecoming Friday

September 29, 2011

The Big Spring Steers hope their homecoming celebrations will include marking one down in the win column this week, as they play host to the Greenwood Rangers at Memorial Stadium Friday night. The game will start at 7:30 p.m.

The 0-5 Steers have shown remarkable improvement on defense over the last few weeks, but the offense — plagued by injuries — has sputtered, with last week's nine points coming in just above their season average of 8.2.

Lady Steers stifle Snyder

September 28, 2011

The Big Spring Lady Steers remained undefeated in district play, defeating Snyder in Steer Gym in three identical 25-14 matches.

Despite dropping from number nine to nineteen in the the latest Texas coaches poll, the Lady Steers remain a tough challenge for any opponent and their play continues to improve from week to week.

Forsan wins district opener

September 27, 2011

FORSAN — The Forsan Buffaloes opened district play Friday night in front of a packed stadium against the Post Antelopes. Any hopes Ty Johnson might be tired after last week's display were quickly dismissed as he scored four more times in the Buffaloes' decisive 47-14 stampeding of Post.

Foster Burchett found the end zone three times himself, as well as hitting Johnson for one of his scores in the game. Yet, Forsan's head coach said the game was not about individual accomplishment.

Coahoma uses late score to defeat Stanton

September 27, 2011

Justin Coker rushed for 95 yards and Tanner Ruiz scored with just under two minutes left in the game, as Coahoma defeated Stanton 20-16 in the two teams' district opener Friday night.

After trailing the Buffaloes the entire game, Ruiz's nine yard run with 1: 57 left on the clock pushed the Bulldogs into the win column. Coahoma had received the ball for their final possession — and last chance — after short punt and started on the 36 yard line of Stanton.
