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.

Hawks fall to No. 1 South Plains

February 24, 2012

For 37 minutes, the Howard College men's basketball team were able to hold onto hopes of upsetting the top junior college team in the nation.

In the final three minutes, however, South Plains College showed how it had attained such a lofty ranking.

The top-ranked Texans survived an early Howard blitz, then dominated the closing minutes to take a 72-70 win over the Hawks at Garrett Coliseum Thursday night.

One and done: Steers bow out of playoffs

February 22, 2012

EASTLAND — The Big Spring Steers' trip through the 2012 basketball playoffs was brief and, at times, painful.

The Burkburnett Bulldogs unleashed an offensive and defensive storm in the first quarter en route to a 65-42 victory over the Steers in their Class 3A bi-district playoff game at Eastland High School Tuesday night.

The first eight minutes of the game was a nightmare clad in orange — orange being the predominant color of Burkburnett's jerseys — for the Steers. Quite simply, the Bulldogs did little wrong, while Big Spring couldn't establish a rhythm on either side of the court.

Lady Steers down Coahoma in extra innings

February 21, 2012

Big Spring High School Softball Coach John Sparks got a first look at his full-strength squad Monday night, and liked most of what he saw.

For sure, he enjoyed the outcome.

Terra Keeney stroked a RBI double with two outs in the eighth inning to give Big Spring a 7-6 victory over Coahoma in non-district action Monday at the Lady Steer Softball Complex.

Considering it was a matchup of Howard County teams, perhaps it was only fitting that this one would play out like it did, with both teams rallying from deficits while displaying a flair for the dramatic.

Howard splits with Odessa

February 21, 2012

ODESSA — The Howard College men's basketball team apparently decided it had had enough last-minute drama for now.

The Hawks, who came into Monday's Western Junior College Athletic Conference game with Odessa fresh off two nail-biting wins, watched the Wranglers rally to take the lead with seven minutes remaining.

Rather than watch this game go down to the wire, however, the Hawks responded with a closing run that gave them a somewhat comfortable 69-59 victory at the OC Sports Center.

Fight mars HC-Midland showdown

February 17, 2012

One of the most storied rivalries in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference added an ugly chapter Thursday night.

Howard College defeated Midland College, 74-65, in a men's basketball matchup at Garrett Coliseum, but all anyone will remember about the game is a bench-clearing brawl that marred its final moments and resulted in several player ejections, at least two suspensions and MC having to finish the game with only four players on the court.
