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.

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.

Big Spring hoops squads no match for ranked Wylie

January 30, 2013

Big Spring

Girls

It took the Lady Steers (16-14, 4-4) over five minutes to score during Tuesday's meeting with No. 17 Abilene Wylie. Meanwhile, the Lady Bulldogs seemed as if they couldn't miss a shot, outscoring Big Spring 32-5 in the first half.

With about four minutes remaining before halftime, a fire alarm was tripped, halting the action for about 10 minutes. It was just a false alarm, but unfortunately for Big Spring it didn't interrupt Wylie's rhythm. The Lady Bulldogs went home with their perfect District 4-3A record intact after a 60-24 blowout win.

The Steers kept their chance of earning a postseason berth alive Friday with a 67-43 rout of visiting Snyder.

Less than a minute into the game, Tyler Graves put up four points and Tavaris Walker registered his first two points of the outing, putting BSHS up 6-0.

Looking dominant on defense, the Steers forced three straight turnovers — all of which turned into points.

Snyder was unable to put together a meaningful rally, as BSHS led the Tigers from start to finish.

Lady Buffs upset No. 5 Smyer, BSHS squads notch wins against Sweetwater

SWEETWATER — The Steers have struggled since district play began, but they may have turned a corner Tuesday as Big Spring defeated the Mustangs 49-39 to pick up its first 4-3A victory.

After a hard-fought loss to Greenwood last Friday, the win came in a timely manner for BSHS Head Coach Cliff Thompson.

“We carried over the momentum from the Greenwood game,” Thompson said. “We executed well and we shot the ball well and played good defense.”

Ty Sealy and Tyler Graves each put up 13 points for the Steers, while Tavaris Walker had nine.

Lady Hawks dominate Cowgirls 66-37

January 21, 2013

The Lady Hawks (13-7, 1-3) had an opening on the schedule due to a cancellation by Mountain View Junior College, so HC Head Women's Basketball Coach Earl Diddle took advantage of Southwest Texas Junior College's visit to the area and set up a game with the Cowgirls.

“We had a chance to play since they were up here on the SWCID capus,” Diddle said. “It worked out well. They have a good team — they play other WJCAC teams as well — this late in the year, it's better than a practice and we were able to accomplish a lot of things.”

Steers stage late rally, but fall to Greenwood in wild finish

Big Spring

Boys

The Steers may have fallen to 0-3 in District 4-3A play Friday at Steer Gym, but they still gave the fans their money's worth during the 54-49 loss to Greenwood.

Big Spring started off strong, outscoring the Rangers 15-9 in the first quarter. Greenwood mounted an attack and went on a 15-6 run in the second period, including a three-point shot which gave them the lead four minutes before the halfway mark. The Steers went into the locker room at the break down 26-21.

FORSAN — The Buffaloes evened their district record to 1-1 (11-8 overall) with a 57-46 win over visiting Plains on Friday.

Dillon Bagnall led FHS with 14 points, while Kade Fannin had 10, Aric Hernandez nine and Tyler Evans eight.

“The guys came back from an early deficit by staying focused,” Forsan Head Coach Gary Huckabee said. “We had some really good support from the bench. It was a very important win for us, it got us back on track in district play.”

The Buffs will travel to Seagraves on Tuesday.

Steers, Lady Steers lose wild games at home

Big Spring

Boys

The crowd at Steer Gym on Friday wasn't happy with the officiating late in the game, which drew boos from Big Spring natives who thought a couple of traveling calls were omitted for Lubbock Cooper, while the Steers were being unfairly called for fouls.

In the end, the Pirates held on to defeat the Steers 59-51.
Cooper's Brent Carlson made 14-of-18 free throws during the game and the Pirates never relinquished the lead.

After a see-saw first half, the Steers found themselves trailing by 12 with under three minutes to play in the third stanza.

Tannehill's NFL draft tops 2012 Year in Review

December 31, 2012

It was a year full of surprises.

The biggest sports headline in the Crossroads may have been the 2012 NFL draft. Big Spring native and Texas A&M alum Ryan Tannehill was chosen as the eighth overall pick by the Miami Dolphins to add some stability to the vaunted quarterback position.

While the locals may have had faith in Tannehill, many sports world talking heads remained skeptical. Boy, were they wrong.

Tannehill may not have sizzled in the rookie record realm, but he showed he had the leadership qualities to direct a pro squad and the determination to win.

BRIDGEPORT — The Steers (5-12) met two larger schools Friday — Saginaw and Fort Worth Western Hills — and lost both outings as Big Spring dropped Game One to Saginaw 63-45 and Game Two to Western Hills 61-48.
Despite the mismatch in enrollment numbers, BSHS Head Coach Cliff

Thompson cited a lack of consistency as the reason for the losses.
“We started off playing well against Saginaw, but then we had a terrible third quarter,” Thompson said. “We turned the ball over four or five times and (Saginaw) scored on all of them. We just didn't play all four quarters.”

District 4-1A recognizes Forsan Buffaloes

December 22, 2012

FORSAN — The Buffaloes will be losing some gridiron stalwarts this year, including quarterback Marcus Cervantes, safety Trevor Burchett and runningback Brendan Roman.

Luckily for Head Football Coach Jason Phillips, he has more all-district selections expected to return next year than are graduating.

“We had a good senior class this year,” Phillips said. “Especially with all the injuries — most of them were to seniors — but they were a big part of our success and helped us build our program. I am proud of those guys.”
