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.

Emory’s late 3-pointer helps Hawks upset Chaps, Howard women fall

February 15, 2011

MIDLAND — The emotion was clear on the Howard College bench.

They didn’t want to possibly meet No. 5 Midland College again in the regional tournament knowing they went 0-2 against the Chaps during the regular season.

So even though the Hawks were down 18 at one point and it looked like the conference leaders were going to prevail again, Carlos Emory came through.

Emory hit a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left in the game to cap off a Howard comeback, leading the Hawks to a 76-74 win over the Chaps Monday in Midland. The Hawks were down by 10 with a little more than two minutes left.

BSHS golf enjoying first tournament win since ‘04

February 15, 2011

The Big Spring boys’ golf team is on the right path early this spring season.

The Steers are reveling in their first-place finish at the Big Spring Invitational Friday and Saturday at the Big Spring Country Club. The Steers shot a 622 as a team, with Blake Brorman’s 146 being the lowest score on the team.

It’s the first tournament win for Big Spring golf — boys or girls — since 2004.

“It’s a good confidence builder, finally getting a team win under our belt,” Brorman said. “It’s a big deal and I think it’s going to play later on down the road knowing we can actually win one.”

Steers stumble at Wylie, 69-54

February 12, 2011

ABILENE — The first quarter of Friday’s game between Big Spring and Abilene Wylie was a lot like the final minutes of the first game between these two squads.

With a chance to win the District 5-3A crown at stake, Big Spring fell to Wylie 69-54 on the road and for the second time this season.
In the first Big Spring-Wylie meeting on Jan. 28, the Bulldogs’ Lance Lindley hit a huge 3-pointer with 28 seconds left to lift his team past the Steers.

Steers try to stay in hunt for district crown

February 11, 2011

The Big Spring Steers have been openly talking about a District 5-3A crown since day one.

Tonight is their chance to make sure they get a shot at it.
The Steers face Abilene Wylie in the second matchup of the season at 7:30 p.m. in Abilene with a chance to be district champions on the line.

“I’ve mentioned it several times to them,” BSHS head coach Cliff Thompson said. “They understand. I told them in the locker room after that first game our goal is to win the district championship. I just try to make sure they understand that we can’t play uptight.”

Hawks get best of NMMI, 64-48

February 11, 2011

Everything about the Howard College-New Mexico Military Institute game Thursday pointed toward an emphatic win for the Hawks.

Howard was on a four-game win streak, NMMI is at the bottom of the Region-5 West standings and this was the team the Hawks beat in Roswell, N.M., with four players in the final minutes of the game, due to suspensions and foul trouble.

While the Hawks triumphed for a 64-48 win Thursday, the Broncos gave Howard some trouble early on, enough for head coach Mark Adams to take notice.

Lady Steers’ season ends at Snyder; Segundo, BSHS boys take care of Tigers

February 9, 2011

SNYDER — The Big Spring Lady Steers are entering the offseason a little earlier than they wanted.

In a win-and-in scenario, Snyder clinched third place and a playoff berth with a 44-32 win over Big Spring Tuesday night in the season finale.

The Lady Steers’ woes in the first half continued, which was a big reason for the loss. Big Spring scored seven points in the first half.
But despite that, Big Spring made Snyder sweat a little bit, getting within 10 a few times in the second half after the slow start.

HC softball sweeps doubleheader against Cisco

February 9, 2011

The Howard College softball team went from a close win to an onslaught in its doubleheader against Cisco College Tuesday at Big Spring High School.

The Hawks needed an RBI single from sophomore infielder Lana Dominguez in the bottom of the seventh to edge the Lady Wranglers in the first game.

They didn’t have to sweat so much in the second game, upending Cisco College 10-1 in six innings.

Young, Adams send Steers past Lions; Lady Steers fall, but still in hunt for playoff spot

February 8, 2011

Big Spring boys
Brownwood sent the wrong player to the line with 3.2 seconds left.
The Lions were clinging to a 49-48 lead when Luke Adams was fouled and sent to the charity stripe and at that point, it was just a matter of playing defense for three more seconds.

“I knew they were going in,” Adams said of the late free throws. “Without my teammates, it wouldn’t have been possible.”

Those two free throws did go in as Big Spring edged the Lions for a thrilling 50-49 win and Adams is right. The Steers wouldn’t have been in position to win if it weren’t for Dayvion Young’s late heroics.
