Steers fall twice, ladies split in holiday tourneys

December 29, 2012

Big Spring

Boys

BRIDGEPORT — The Steers (5-12) met two larger schools Friday — Saginaw and Fort Worth Western Hills — and lost both outings as Big Spring dropped Game One to Saginaw 63-45 and Game Two to Western Hills 61-48.
Despite the mismatch in enrollment numbers, BSHS Head Coach Cliff

Thompson cited a lack of consistency as the reason for the losses.
“We started off playing well against Saginaw, but then we had a terrible third quarter,” Thompson said. “We turned the ball over four or five times and (Saginaw) scored on all of them. We just didn't play all four quarters.”

December 22, 2012

FORSAN — The Buffaloes will be losing some gridiron stalwarts this year, including quarterback Marcus Cervantes, safety Trevor Burchett and runningback Brendan Roman.

Luckily for Head Football Coach Jason Phillips, he has more all-district selections expected to return next year than are graduating.

“We had a good senior class this year,” Phillips said. “Especially with all the injuries — most of them were to seniors — but they were a big part of our success and helped us build our program. I am proud of those guys.”

LUBBOCK — The Steers (4-8) kept up with Lubbock Monterey on Tuesday, but in the fourth period, it was the Plainsmen who were able to make the shots to put away the game, handing Big Spring a 61-53 loss.

“It was a tight game going into the fourth quarter,” BSHS Head Coach Cliff Thompson said.

“They made plays at the end. Overall, the flow of the game was good. We played well defensively — we never let it get out of hand — and offensively, we got to the free-throw line a lot.”

Accurate shooting remains Thompson’s priority.
