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.

Score an assist to Mother Nature.

Buffaloes blast Denver City

March 19, 2011

FORSAN — The Forsan Buffaloes broke out the lumber to claim their second district victory of the 2011 baseball season, pounding Denver City 16-8 at the FHS field Friday afternoon.

The Buffs spotted Denver City an early 2-1 lead, but came roaring back in the middle innings to put the game out of reach.

Peyton Parker pitched five innings to earn the win, with relief help from Trevor Burchett.

To be continued: Lightning halts Lady Steers' district opener

March 19, 2011

The Big Spring Lady Steers had no shortage of opponents Friday night.

For starters, there was the visiting Sweetwater Lady Mustangs, who spotted the Lady Steers a six-run lead, then came roaring back with six runs of their own.

Then, there was the Lady Steers themselves, who gave the Sweetwater rally a helping hand with ineffective pitching and two three errors.

Finally, there was Mother Nature, who proved to be the toughest opponent of the night.

Pitching, defense lead Lady Steers to win

March 17, 2011

Big Spring High School Softball Coach John Sparks said the Lady Steers will have to rely on pitching and defense for any success they have this season.

A prime example of Sparks' comments came Wednesday. Big Spring managed only three hits against San Angelo Central, but received sterling performances from pitcher Logan Yarbar in particular and the Lady Steers' defense in general en route to a 3-1 victory over San Angelo Central at the BSHS Softball Complex.

Steers sweep Lake View

March 16, 2011

A quick lesson from Baseball 101: When your pitcher throws strikes, the game becomes a lot easier.

Two varying examples of this rule were on display during the Big Spring Steers' doubleheader vs. San Angelo Lake View Tuesday afternoon. In game one, both the Steers and the Chiefs had trouble finding the strike zone and the end result was a 13-12 marathon win for the Steers. In the nightcap, however, Big Spring pitcher Jacob Acosta consistently got ahead of the opposing batters and the Steers cruised to a relatively easy 7-3 victory.

Emory highlights WJCAC honors for Howard College

March 10, 2011

The Howard College Hawks are well-represented as the Western Junior College Athletic Conference honors were announced this week.

Probably the highest honor for Howard was Carlos Emory being named MVP of the conference. Shavon Coleman, Corey Stern and Joe Bright all earned honorable mention.

With little time left on the clock and the Hawk needing a big shot, Emory was often the go-to guy. The most memorable shot the sophomore took is probably the 3-pointer that gave the Hawks the lead at Midland College with 15 seconds left.

BSHS baseball takes care of Brownfield

March 9, 2011

It wasn’t exactly a night full of offense for Brownfield and Big Spring in their matchup Tuesday at Steer Park.

Big Spring third baseman Jacob Acosta changed all that with one swing, though.

Acosta’s three-run RBI double sparked a five-run third inning as the Steers went on to beat the Cubs 12-2 in five innings.

The Steers were up 3-1 before Acosta’s blast to left field, but they hadn’t had an extra base hit. Ascota’s double went past the Brownfield left-fielder and Gunnar Kennedy, Jared Deporto and Max Pappajohn were sent home. The Steers went from a 3-1 lead to an 8-1 lead.
