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.

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.

Hawks outlast NMMI

January 20, 2012

In the long history of the Howard College-New Mexico Military Institute series, Howard has frequently won but just as frequently struggled against the Broncos.

Thursday night's latest edition of the rivalry was no exception. The Hawks eventually won, 72-64, but had to hold on for dear life late to secure the victory, which improved their record to 13-3 overall and 2-0 in Western Junior College Athletic Conference play.

Howard held double-digit leads in both halves, but watched the Broncos (7-9, 0-2) rally to make things close each time.

Roosevelt sweeps Forsan

January 18, 2012

FORSAN — A power outage of sorts kept the Forsan Buffaloes and Lady Buffs out of the win column against Lubbock Roosevelt Tuesday night.

Defensively, both teams had their moments against Roosevelt, but it was a different story on the other end of the court, as offensive shortcomings plagued both teams — The Lady Buffs dropped a 59-27 decision, while the Buffaloes ended the night on the short end of a 51-38 score.

Forsan's girls fell to 12-11 overall and 2-6 in District 3-2A play, while the boys dropped to 11-10 and 2-4.

Big Spring sweeps Sweetwater

January 18, 2012

BOYS' GAME

The first quarter of Tuesday's District 5-3A basketball game between Sweetwater and Big Spring featured five lead changes and ended with the visitors up by just a point, 11-10.

Midway through the second quarter, it was still a contest as the Mustangs trailed by just three (17-14). But the Steers caught fire at that point, going on a 15-1 run to lead by 17, 32-15, at halftime, and never looked back en route to a 64-35 win at Mustang Gym.
