Borden-Garden City matchup brings fans to six-man football

November 19, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Name the time, date and place of the Garden City-Borden County football game and the urge to be there is evident.

Maybe more than most six-man football games, when these two teams hook up, fans flock to Gail, Garden City or in today’s case, Forsan at 7:30 p.m., hoping to see the epitome of six-man football.

The two teams faced each other in a 40-39 thriller during the regular season, with Garden City getting the upper hand. Now tonight, a lot more is on the line during the area round of the playoffs.

Holliday on tap for Stanton in playoffs

November 19, 2010

STANTON — Stanton was excited to be this far into the playoffs like many other teams. That ended quickly with a loss to Olton.

The Buffaloes don’t talk much about last year, making it a point to concentrate on what’s in front of them.

But with a senior laden squad and a strong defense, it’s safe to say the Buffs don’t want to let the chance to keep playing pass them by this time.

She's improved her defense, her rebounding, she's improved her passing. She's a great shooter.

Howard men in Denison, women face LCU JV

November 19, 2010

Things are toughening up or the Howard College men’s basketball team and head coach Mark Adams wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Hawks are on the road against Collin County Community College at 5:30 p.m. today and Grayson County College at 3 p.m. Saturday in Denison.

The main challenge here? Playing Collin County and not having ample time to prepare for Grayson County.
The Hawks have done this before, with Friday and Saturday games in Weatherford and Midland the last two weekends. This time it’s different though, both teams are tougher.

Lady Steers’ perimeter shooting beats Fort Stockton

November 17, 2010

Getting off to a good start was one of the main objectives for the Big Spring Lady Steers in Tuesday’s game against Fort Stockton in Steer Gym.

How’s a 17-1 run for starters en route to a 60-18 win?

“We talked about that since the last game,“ BSHS head coach Mike Warren said. “We got good shots against their zone just passing the ball around and inside to Cerbi Ritchey, inside to Diamond Mayes. That opened up stuff on the outside.”

Steers display athleticism in 69-33 rout of Fort Stockton

November 17, 2010

Cliff Thompson joked that right now would be a good time to retire. After all, he would retire undefeated as the Big Spring boys’ basketball coach at 1-0.

Then he quickly noted that winning just feels too good.
The Steers upended Fort Stockton for a season-opening 69-33 for Thompson’s first win as Big Spring’s head coach. If the Steers can continue to improve, Thompson just might have the chance to get used to winning.
