The Hawks delivered a stunning defensive performance in the first half of their tournament opener and that was more than enough to secure them an 85-57 victory over Weatherford College.

The weather was cold, but the Big Spring Steers' bats were hot.

The Steers proved to be ungracious hosts Thursday night, downing Monahans, 15-5, to cap first day play at the Big Spring Varsity Baseball Tournament.

The Steers spotted Monahans a 2-0 lead after the top of the second, but stormed back with seven runs in their half of the inning and never looked back from there.
