Coahoma attempts to erase recent playoff woes

November 12, 2010

COAHOMA — Coahoma head coach Trey Gardner describes playoff time like some children describe their favorite holiday.

After all, he has said making it to the playoffs is like Christmas coming early for him.

But the Bulldogs are hoping the joy doesn’t end so soon when they take on Spearman in bi-district playoff action at 8 p.m. today in Plainview.

Defense key in Stanton-Abernathy matchup

November 12, 2010

STANTON — The playoffs were already in hand, but Stanton didn’t want to end the season with a loss at Anson. It looked like the Buffaloes were going to have to abort that plan, down 15 at halftime.

The Buffs never wavered though, scoring 36 unanswered points in the second half to win in Week 10.

Undefeated Ira on tap for Grady in playoffs

November 12, 2010

LENORAH — Things are already tough for Grady as the bi-district round of the UIL state football playoffs begin.

The 10-0 Ira Bulldogs will aim to end the Wildcats' playoff run immediately at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Memorial Stadium here in Big Spring.

Sounds like a tall order for the Wildcats to knock off a team that hasn't lost all season, but head coach Brad Cox isn't rattled by the thought of facing an undefeated team to start the playoffs.

He and the Wildcats are excited and, honestly, accustomed to having to beat the odds.
