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.

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.

Lady Steers fall to Snyder

March 21, 2012

SNYDER — The Big Spring Lady Steers, who opened District 5-3A softball play last Friday with a win over Sweetwater, didn't fare as well on the road Tuesday, as Big Spring dropped to a 1-1 district record following a 3-1 loss to rival Snyder on the road.

What went wrong for BSHS?

According to Coach John Sparks, it all came down to mental discipline at the plate.

“It was a defensive game,” he said. “We made three errors, which put people on base. Then, (Snyder) manufactured the runs.”

Buffaloes rout Post, 11-1

March 14, 2012

FORSAN — It was all too much for the Post Antelopes.

The combination of several hot Forsan bats and a no-hitter pitched by Foster Burnett turned out to be too much for Post to overcome as the Buffaloes took an 11-1 run-rule victory in District 3-2A action Tuesday afternoon.

The Buffs made life difficult for Post from the very start, grabbing the lead in the first inning.

Patrick Robles was the first Buffalo to reach base after smacking a double in his first at-bat. Burchett drew a walk, and was driven in by Blaise Coffman in the bottom of the first.

Jahnia Willard and Shelby Roemer also drove in runs, making the score 4-3 at the end of the first inning.
