Defense focus for Thompson as Steers continue trek

December 16, 2010

The Big Spring Steers don’t play horrible defense. In some cases, they’re far from it.

But to first-year head coach Cliff Thompson, they can never be too good on the defensive side of the ball.

That’s one focus — among many — for the Steers as their third home game this season approaches. Thompson said the focus is starting to shift toward what the Steers have to do to get ready for District 5-3A play in January and at the top of his list is defense.

Bulldogs reveling in Acosta, Castilaw honors

December 15, 2010

COAHOMA — As Pete Acosta was trying to recall how many people have congratulated him on his selection to the 2010 Class 2A All-State Football team, another bystander shouted his name from afar, hoping to do the same.

Safe to say Coahoma is proud of what the senior has done.

Acosta was named second team all-state by the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors with three other defensive backs. He wasn’t the only Bulldog on the list, either. Josh Castilaw earned honorable mention as an offensive lineman.

Big Spring girls beat Monahans, BSHS boys cruise past Lake View

December 15, 2010

The Big Spring Lady Steers took care of business at home once again this season Tuesday. This time they cruised past Monahans 56-34 in Steer Gym for their 11th win of the season.

Like most games recently, this game was all about experimenting with different lineups and getting every player on the floor.

“We started a different lineup, had an all junior lineup just to kind of look at that group and I thought they kind of got in there and got after it,” head coach Mike Warren said. “Although, the score was close

Bulldogettes stave off Post in thriller, 46-45

December 15, 2010

COAHOMA — In a game like this, a nine-point deficit looked like it was too far out of reach for the Coahoma Bulldogettes heading into the fourth quarter.

But they didn’t want to go 0-2 in district play. The fear of that happening alone sparked Coahoma in a thrilling 46-45 win over Post in District 3-2A action Tuesday in Coahoma.

The Bulldogettes were down 39-30 heading into the fourth quarter, but battled back to tie it thanks to a few baskets from Minnie Goodblanket and a clutch shot from Haley Pace with about a minute left in the game.

Twice as nice: Garden City wins back-to-back titles

December 12, 2010

GARDEN CITY – At the beginning of the 2010 season, Ian Schaefer wasn’t quite sure the Garden City Bearkats would end up hoisting the UIL Six-Man Division I state championship trophy again.

At the very least, he didn’t want to make a bold prediction. But the more this team came together, got better every week and stayed focused, the more Schaefer knew the Bearkats were on to something special.

Players cherish Jones’ impact on Garden City

December 12, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Garden City football players talk about head coach Vance Jones like he’s a family member.

It’s just one way of putting his impact on the program in perspective.
“Coach Jones is like a second dad almost,” running back Josh Colunga said. “He’s been there for us on and off the field. He’s a great coach. He knows what he’s doing. He takes care of us a lot. I’m glad I did it under his judgement and his coaching staff. The rest of the coaches are awesome and I just want to say thank you to all of them.”

Garden City-Throckmorton clash in state title game

December 10, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Garden City head coach Vance Jones remembers the last time his Bearkats lost vividly.

It was to Throckmorton in the beginning of the 2009 season and Jones remembers his players naturally being upset.

More good than harm came from that loss, though.

“That loss was probably our motivation to work harder to get to play them again,” Jones said. “After the game, they said ‘Coach, we can beat them.’ They worked hard and that was the driving engine that helped us get to that point and once we beat them, we said ‘Hey, maybe we have a shot to go all the way.”
