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.

Lady Steers stage defensive clinic vs. Monahans

January 25, 2012

Quick basketball lesson: If you keep the other team from scoring, your chances for victory become ridiculously easy.

The Big Spring Lady Steers took that lesson to heart Tuesday, using ferocious defensive pressure to hound the Monahans Lady Loboes into submission en route to a 67-24 non-district basketball victory at Steer Gym Tuesday night.

Big Spring served notice from the start what kind of night it would been when the Lady Steers blanked Monahans in the first quarter — and it barely got better for the Lady Loboes from there.

Midland takes 2 from Hawks

January 24, 2012

MIDLAND — Some things should just be assumed when Howard College and Midland College meet on the basketball court — defense will rule the day; the winner will be celebrating a hard-fought win; and the loser will be left regretting missed chances.

Monday night's doubleheader at Chaparral Center followed that script perfectly as Midland took a pair of defensive battles against the Hawks, prevailing 59-53 in the women's game and 66-60 in the men's contest.
