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.

Steers dive into playoffs, Bowie on tap

February 22, 2011

What does a head coach who’s never been to the playoffs tell his players about the playoffs?

It’s something the eight seniors on this team can relate to.

“I’ve talked to a lot of coaches who have been in my position and I just try to heed their advice and make it fun for the guys,” BSHS boys’ basketball head coach Cliff Thompson said. “For a lot of them, I just make sure they’re enjoying it because it’s the last time they’ll get to do this. For me, it’s a learning process, for them it’s the only chance they get.”

February 22, 2011

Playoff warm-up win over Paducah helps Steers shake off rust

February 19, 2011

POST — The Big Spring Steers have had a little more than a week of preparation for their bi-district playoff game against Bowie Tuesday.

But the way they ended the regular season — a 69-54 loss at Abilene Wylie — is still fresh in their minds. So head coach Cliff Thompson and the Steers didn’t mind expressing how good a 74-58 win over Paducah felt, even if it was a playoff warm-up game.

“We needed that after that Wylie game,” he said. “We didn’t play well. Paducah is a good team. Just Monday, they beat Seminole, who won their
3A district. We played well and that was good to see.”

Paducah’s quick start ousts Grady girls

Paducah handed a 58-35 loss to the Lady Cats, whose playoff run ended after a win over Ropes in the bi-district round Tuesday.

“Our expectations for our team this year are at the highest level,” Roberson said. “I have one expectation for this team and that’s to be very successful. For years, I’ve been building. I haven’t had any senior leadership or any leaders to speak up. Now my young ones have grown up, and I’ve got some young ones behind them.”

HC women fall to Western Texas, Hawks get 10th conference win

February 18, 2011

Western Texas had nothing to play for in Thursday’s matchup against Howard College in Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

Sometimes those are the most dangerous teams.

The Hawks’ comeback was a little too late as they fell to the Lady Westerners 55-53 in WJCAC action.

More importantly, the loss ties Howard with New Mexico Junior College for the fourth and final spot for the Region V Tournament. Both teams are at 5-5.

Grady girls edge Ropes in bi-district playoff game

February 16, 2011

In a game that lacked scoring, it's fitting the biggest play of the night happened on the defensive end.

Ropes' fourth quarter push was stalled after Grady's Sarah Clay blocked Samantha Medrano's 3-pointer, which could have given the Lady Eagles a 31-30 lead with a little under a minute left in the game.

Instead Grady held on for the 31-28 win in Class A Division II bi-district playoff action and a date with No. 14 Paducah in the area round.

Clay, who also had a team-high eight points, came up big at the right time for the Lady Cats.
