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.

Coahoma loses to Alpine, 53-25

November 10, 2012

COAHOMA — With the injuries Coahoma has faced to its position players, it seemed a bit like a David vs. Goliath affair as the Bulldogs hosted the perennially robust Alpine Bucks on Friday to close out their season.

This time, Goliath won.

Despite a characteristic strong showing from the 'Dogs, Alpine went home the victors with a 53-25 win, cementing its District 3-2A title.

As for Coahoma, Head Coach Trey Gardner hopes the grit shown by his seniors set a good example for the underclassmen poised to fill their shoes.

Steers stumble in second half, fall to Monahans

November 10, 2012

MONAHANS — It was the Steers' last chance to make their mark in district play against a formidable Monahans squad — whose only district loss came to No. 2 ranked Wylie — on the road Friday, but a lack of offensive execution in the second half put the Loboes on top, 36-13.

Though it wasn't the way BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey wanted the season to end, he remains optimistic Big Spring's future is bright.

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.

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.

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.

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
