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 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.
