Long time coming — Steers earn 42-14 win over Snyder

October 19, 2013

The drought is over. The Steer faithful — as well as Head Coach Phillip Ritchey — finally celebrated a district win after two straight seasons without one, as Big Spring (5-2, 1-1) defeated Snyder 42-14 at Memorial Stadium.

“I feel a ton lighter,” Ritchey said of the win. “It's a big load off our backs. It was a humongous win for us. It was one of the best games we've played in a long time. From start to finish. We picked up momentum at the Wylie game and brought it over to the this one. Hopefully it will keep snowballing.”
