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.

Six-Man Roundup

October 6, 2012

Garden City — Head Coach Matt Odom was tasked with bringing back Garden City's winning tradition. Six games into the season, the Bearkats have notched only one win.

Garden City hosted a formidable Robert Lee (5-1) squad on Friday and although they played the Steers tough, lost the battle 30-14 — a fairly narrow defeat by six-man standards.

It isn't all bad in Garden City, however, as Head Coach Matt Odom's squad has played a brutal predistrict schedule and despite suffering through injuries to key players, he feels his team has improved since the first game.

Roughnecks rough up Buffs 43-0

October 6, 2012

FORSAN — After winning their first four games of the season, the injury-plagued Forsan Buffaloes have now dropped two straight after a 43-0 rout by the Sundown Roughnecks on Friday at Buffalo Stadium.

Forsan — despite missing five offensive starters — the Buffs looked strong early in the matchup as Forsan kept the chains moving, but were ultimately stopped by an aggresssive Roughneck defense — who clearly used its size advantage over the Buffaloes.

Bulldogs beaten by ballinger, Forsan postponed due to rain

COAHOMA
FORSAN — Coahoma's homecoming was thwarted by the rain and its game moved to Forsan's more accomodating artificial turf as the endless rain Friday made a mess of Bulldog Stadium. Homecoming activities were postponed until the Stanton game, which is slated for Oct. 12.

Last night, The Bulldogs hosted undefeated Ballinger and the Bearcats mauled Coahoma 21-0.

The loss was Coahoma's third straight as Head Coach Trey Gardner's team has been battling a host of injuries to key players on offense and defense.

Steers top Indians 29-19

September 29, 2012

Memorial Stadium was awash in sheets of rain Friday as Big Spring hosted Seminole for its last predistrict bout.

The Steers allowed two late scores, but the Indians' rally wasn't enough as Big Spring — who recorded an 0-10 record last season — improved to 5-0 after a sloppy 29-19 victory.

The rain — which didn't let up throughout the entire evening — made the game a bit more interesting than BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey may have wanted at times.

TUSCOLA — This time, the Buffaloes hunted the Indians.

The undefeated Forsan Buffaloes traveled to meet the winless Jim Ned High School on Friday, but barely scraped by with a victory as the Buffs were forced to mount a 25-point comeback to defeat the Indians, who had jumped out to 21-0 lead by the end of the first half of play.

Forsan's Brendan Roman scored two running touchdowns and rushed for 117 yards and Trevor Burchett had a 37-yard scoring reception. Burchett also shared quarterbacking duties with Marcus Cervantes. Both passed for one touchdown apiece.

Big Spring —

The Steers’ redemption of last year’s 0-10 record is well underway.

Big Spring is now 3-0 as they head into Friday’s homecoming game against Andrews and senior linebacker Max Pappajohn has played a big part of the program’s success.

“He had the big hit of the game (against Lake View) defensively,” BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey said. “He is all over the field making plays and being a leader.”

Pappajohn also plays tight end on the offensive side of the ball.
