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.

The weather was cold, but the Big Spring Steers' bats were hot.

The Steers proved to be ungracious hosts Thursday night, downing Monahans, 15-5, to cap first day play at the Big Spring Varsity Baseball Tournament.

ABILENE — The Howard College baseball team improved to 16-2 for the season by sweeping a doubleheader with McMurry University Monday afternoon.

In Monday's first game, the Hawks broke open a tie game with three runs in the fifth inning, then held on for an 8-5 win. Dominic Moreno took the win in relief of Howard starter Ethan Carnes, and Nick Sawyer recorded the last four outs to earn the save.

Sands, Grady vie for state berth

March 3, 2012
