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.

Area teams set to wrap up regular season

November 9, 2012

Big Spring:

Tonight marks the end of another season of West Texas high school football. For most of the Crossroads area teams, it means the final game of the season.

Big Spring, under the guidance of Coach Phillip Ritchey and promising sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill, began the season with a shutout win and rolled to a 5-0 start.

The Steers opened district play with a loss, but played No. 2 ranked Abilene Wylie tough.

Forsan falls to 8-0 Anson, Coahoma bested by Reagan County

November 3, 2012

ANSON — If the Tigers' 9-0 record doesn't convine you they are for real, take Forsan Head Coach Jason Phillips' word for it.

“Anson is a good football team on both sides of the ball,” Phillips said of the Tigers, who defeated the Buffs 49-7 Friday night in Anson. “They are real physical up front.”

Forsan held a 7-6 lead headed into the second quarter after senior running back Brendan Roman scored a rushing touchdown, but Anson — who went 0-10 last year — pulled away from the Buffaloes by scoring 43 unanswered points through the remaining three quarters of play.

Steers battle, but lose to Greenwood

November 3, 2012

After losing three straight district games, Big Spring (5-4) looked fired up against Greenwood (6-3) at Memorial Stadium on Friday, but the Steers fell victim to explosive Ranger quarterback Kam Williams' dominant running game and couldn't pull out a win, as Greenwood went away with a 34-20 victory.

Howard County Players of the Week

October 31, 2012

Big Spring
The Steers have lost three straight. After a nearly flawless 5-0 start, Big Spring has yet to taste victory in District 4-3A. It appears unlikely — barring some miracle — the Steers will be making a playoff appearance. It may sound bleak, but this time last season, the Steers were winless. With that perspective, 5-3 isn’t all that bad.

Lady Steers win bi-district, advance to area playoff

October 31, 2012

ALPINE — The Lady Steers volleyball squad opened postseason play with a bi-district win over Fabens at Sul Ross State University on Tuesday. Big Spring only needed four sets to defeat the Lady Wildcats.
The Lady Steers dropped the first set 27-29, but came back to win three straight by scores of 25-17, 25-17 and 25-11.
Posting a 28-14 record on the season, No. 17 ranked Big Spring only lost three district matches and will travel to Lubbock Coronado on Saturday to face the Dalhart Lady Wolves. Game time is slated for 3 p.m.
Individual statistics:

Steers upset by Snyder 31-21

October 20, 2012

SNYDER — After scoring a touchdown on its opening possession — a 31-yard run from sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill — it appeared Big Spring was eager to redeem last week's District 4-3A opening loss against a Abilene Wylie with a convincing victory over the Snyder Tigers on the road.

Instead, costly Steer turnovers and a handful of momentum-changing plays resulted in Big Spring coming away with their second loss of the season and a 0-2 conference record as Snyder outlasted the Steers 31-21.

Coahoma gets big win over Sonora 27-21

October 20, 2012

SONORA — It's been a long time coming, but Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner and his squad of Bulldogs finally pulled off a win — their first since the second week of the season — and it couldn't have come at a better time.

The banged-up, but hard-fighting Bulldogs traveled to Sonora and came home with a 27-21 victory over the powerful Broncos to even their district record to 1-1 and hopefully boosting the confidence of a team that has been embroiled with injuries since the season began.

Steers fall to No. 2 Wylie

October 13, 2012

It didn't come easy, but No. 2 ranked Abilene Wylie earned a 4-3A District-opening victory over Big Spring on Friday at Memorial Stadium.
After falling behind 21-0 in the first quarter, the Steers rallied back outscoring the Bulldogs 24-21 for the remainder of the game, but the early deficit was too much to overcome and Wylie handed BSHS its first loss of the season, outscoring the Steers 42-24.

Forsan up, Coahoma down in district openers

October 13, 2012

HASKELL — After losing two straight games against perennial playoff squads Crane and Sundown, the Forsan Buffaloes edged the Haskell Indians 14-7 on the road to open District 4-1A action with a win and improving their record to 5-2 on the season.

Haskell scored early on a touchdown pass to Warren Flye from quarterback Brett Shelton.

Senior running back Brendan Roman returned after being sidelined with a rib injury and racked up 127 yards on the ground and scored a Forsan touchdown in the first quarter of play.
