Coahoma High School head coach Trey Gardner and Forsan head coach Jason Phillips had a lot in common on Friday night as they watched their two teams square off in season-opening “Howard Bowl.” Both were less than pleased with the way their team’s played. Mistakes. Turnovers. Penalties. Missed opportunities. In the end, however, Gardner had a little less to be unhappy about.
Steers win season opener in dramatic fashion with a 41-yard "Hail Mary" pass in the end zone as time expires.
MONAHANS – The Big Spring High School defense had every chance in the world to fold up like a cheap suit on Friday night in front of a large crowd at Estes Memorial Stadium. Sure. At times, they were pushed around more than a lawnmower in Florida as they gave up 364 yards. Sure. They got a little help from the officiating crew that overturned a fourth-quarter touchdown that would have given the Loboes a lead with just ovet 2 minutes to play.
Kyler Franks and Joseph Melendez both rushed for a pair of touchdowns and helped the Bulldogs reel off a convincing 38-7 rout of the McCamey Badgers on Friday in front of a large crowd at Bulldog Stadium.
Jesse Cervantes rushed for three touchdowns on Friday night and helped the Forsan Buffaloes scratch their way into the win column with a dominating 57-0 rout of the Plains Cowboys.

Lady Steers fall to Decatur in state semifinal

November 23, 2013

GARLAND — Big Spring’s hopes of a state title were rudely ended Friday at the Curtis Cullwell Center as the Lady Steer’s historic season came to a close in the state semifinal round.

Big Spring ran into a team with too many weapons and the result was a  25-12, 25-22, 25-10 loss to the Decatur Eagles.

It’s the first trip to the state tournament for the 40-7 Eagles and they made the most of their initial semifinal appearance.

Lady Steers defeat Wylie to advance to state championship

November 18, 2013

SNYDER — Big Spring is headed to the state championship tournament.

The Lady Steers (31-13) may as well have been playing a home game Saturday against District 4-3A nemesis Abilene Wylie, as the crowd was very Big Spring-centric. And quite loud.

Steers win bi-district championship with rout of Fabens

November 16, 2013

PECOS — In a display of sheer domination, Big Spring (8-3) defeated Fabens (4-7) 61-21 at Eagle Stadium Friday, earning the bi-district championship for the first time since 2009.

There were no pivotal moments which served as turning points in momentum — the Steers simply dominated in all phases of the game from the opening kickoff, amassing more than 650 yards of total offense while keeping the Wildcats stymied with smothering defense.

Forsan falls out of playoffs with 20-14 loss to Windthorst

November 16, 2013

COLORADO CITY — It was a hard-fought game, but Forsan (4-7) lost to Windthorst (5-5) 20-14 Friday, ending the Buffaloes' up-and-down season in the bi-district round of the postseason.

The Buffs played well for much of the game, outgaining Windthorst by more than 100 total yards and led 14-7 at the start of the fourth quarter.

It wasn't a lack of offensive or defensive skill which slowed Forsan down, but errors coming at inopportune times, according to FHS Head Coach Jason Phillips.

Lady Steers rally past Springtown, advance to regional final to meet Wylie

November 16, 2013

SNYDER — The Lady Steers (30-13) rallied Friday at the Coliseum after falling in the first two sets to top Springtown (32-8) 22-25, 19-25, 25-17, 25-16, 15-13, claiming the regional semifinal championship in the process.

The win also set up a chance at redemption against District 4-3A rival Wylie (32-9), which is ranked No. 4 in the state by the Texas Girls Coaches Association. A win would crown Big Spring the regional champions and set up a state title run.

Crossroads teams brace for playoffs

November 13, 2013

The Crossroads area football playoff pairings have been finalized.

Big Spring (7-3) will be facing Fabens (4-6) in Pecos on Friday at 7:30 p.m. If the Steers can rebound from Friday's 31-0 loss against Monahans and knock Fabens out of contention, they could again face Andrews (4-6) — which they defeated 61-38 in predistrict play — in the area round, should the Mustangs come out ahead of Borger (3-7).

The road will get a bit harder for BSHS if it can make it to the regional quarterfinal round. At that point, the Steers would likely face Stephenville (8-1) — the defending 3A champion.

Steers close out season with loss to Monahans, move on to face Fabens in bi-district

November 13, 2013

For the first time in 23 years, Big Spring had a chance to claim at least a share of the district championship Friday at Memorial Stadium.
It wasn't the Steers' night.

District foe Monahans ended up winning the title with a 31-0 rout of Big Spring.

Hardly the end to an otherwise stellar season the Steers and Head Coach Phillip Ritchey had hoped for.

But this time around, instead of being forced to wait an entire year to for a shot redemption, BSHS only has to wait a few days, as it will be in the playoffs taking on Fabens — the first postseason appearance since 2009.

Lady Steers edge Monahans to advance to Region I-3A tourney

November 13, 2013

MIDLAND — Not only are the Lady Steers headed to the regional volleyball tournament, they overcame a huge obstacle by the name of Monahans to get there.

Big Spring (29-13) started off strong. Unwilling to let rival Monahans defeat them for the third time this season, the Lady Steers took the first set 25-20 and turned in an even stronger performance in the second set, winning 25-15.
