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.

Big Spring squads lose on road

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.

Howard College

Men

Head Men's Basketball Coach Mark Adams said a wide margin of victory over Division III Brookhaven College on Friday was likely, but the final score of 110-53 exceeded even his expectations.

“We have a team — as far as scoring goes — we score easily,” Adams, who has a NJCAA national championship title on his resume, said. “We can make plays and score points. It was a good win for us.”

The Bears never had a chance, as the Hawks quickly went up 9-0 before Brookhaven managed to put two points on the board.

Howard College Men, Women get road wins against Ranger, Cisco

December 6, 2012

RANGER — The Hawks remained perfect on the season as Howard College defeated Ranger College 84-70 Wednesday.

The 10-0 Hawks started slow, according to Head Coach Mark Adams, but picked up the pace when it was needed.

“It was an important game for us against a very good Ranger team,” Adams said. “It was a hostile environment and we were down at halftime. They played really hard the second half and found a way to win.”

Adams appreciated the test as the Hawks prepare for a tough conference schedule.

Big Spring

For the second time in four days, the Steers found themselves mired in an overtime battle with San Angelo Lake View on Tuesday, and for the second time, Big Spring came away the victors after nipping the Chiefs 65-63.

The first meeting between the Chiefs and the Steers was Saturday at the Doug McCutchen Memorial Basketball Tournament in San Angelo. BSHS ended the weekend with bang when Tyler Graves sunk a three-point shot as time expired to put the Steers up 57-56.

Last night's affair at Steer Gym was just as dramatic.

Steers recognized by District 4-3A

December 4, 2012

The only thing better than heading a team full of All-District athletes is knowing most of them will be back next season

Several Big Spring football players who received District 4-3A honors are underclassmen expected to return to action. That is a good sign for Steer football, according to Head Coach Phillip Ritchey.

“We have quite a few juniors recognized by the district coaches,” Ritchey said. “More so than any other class. That's certainly a good thing for next year.”

SEMINOLE — The Lady Steers (3-3) fell short on the road Tuesday against the Seminole Lady Indians, losing 30-24 despite a strong defensive showing.

BSHS Head Coach Mike Warren is focused on executing offensively before district play begins.

“We played really well on defense,” Warren said. “We could not get going offensively. (Seinole) ran zone on us and we couldn't hit our outside shots.”

Much of the reason for the Lady Steers' opponents using a zone defense attack is due to the scoring threat of Yaneira Tuitt.
