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.

BSHS girls’ track at Tech Saturday

February 18, 2011

Big Spring girls’ track coach Nick Roberson can’t hide the excitement when he talks about the team he has this year.

There’s talent across the board and a good mix of youth and experience.
“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.

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.

Heartbreaking for the Steers, uplifting for the Bulldogs.

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.
