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.

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 ready for District 4-4A swim meet

January 21, 2011

The Big Spring swimming team may have something to prove at today’s District 4-4A meet.

In a district with powerhouses such as Monahans and Pecos, the Steers are looking to make a name for themselves today at the Jerry Larned Sports Complex in Monahans.

“For a lot of them, this is their first year,” BSHS swimming coach Mackenzie Miles said. “They want to make a name for themselves. What’s most important to me is that the one who don’t get to move on to regionals, that they’re able to be most successful at this meet and get their best times.”

Howard men face Midland with 5 players, No. 6 Lady Chaps on tap for Howard women

January 20, 2011

Howard men
The 2010-2011 season for Howard College men’s basketball continues to be one of the more unusual ones.

The No. 8 Hawks have lost seven players to suspensions this season, whittling the roster down to five players heading into one of the biggest games of the year. No. 15 Midland College visits at 7:45 p.m. today in Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.

“I cannot remember a more challenging season than what we’ve had here,” head coach Mark Adams said. “We keep thinking surely, it’s going to start getting better.”

Steers make easy work of Sweetwater, bad shooting night helps Sweetwater girls bury Lady Steers

January 19, 2011

Big Spring boys
More than anything, the first quarter of the Big Spring-Sweetwater game Tuesday in Steer Gym was an exhibition of athleticism on the Steers’ part.

There was that uptempo style they like to run and a couple of missed dunks that had fans buzzing.

But forward Mike Menefield gave the fans what they wanted on a fast break with a two-handed jam that gave the Steers a 13-7 lead.
By then the Steers were well on their way to the 75-46 drubbing of the Mustangs in District 5-3A play.

Coahoma boys
COAHOMA — Coahoma head coach Kim Nichols continues to stress putting four quarters together as the Bulldogs dropped a District 3-2A contest to Denver City at home.
Tanner Ruiz’s 16 points weren’t enough to keep the Bulldogs around in this game. The Bulldogs cut a deficit to seven twice late in the game, but Denver City was just too much.
Things haven’t exactly gone the Bulldogs’ way so far in district play with injuries, among other things, ailing the team, but Nichols said his group is still positive about halfway through district play.

Short-handed Hawks upend NMMI, 68-58

January 18, 2011

ROSWELL, N.M. — The Howard College men’s basketball team wasn’t at full strength for Monday’s game against New Mexico Military Institute, but the Hawks still came away with a 68-58 win to move to 3-0 in Western Junior College Athletic Conference play.

Carlos Emory was huge with 22 points and seven rebounds. He rarely missed, too, shooting 14 of 18 from the field. Shavon Coleman also had 22 points and Corey Stern chipped in 13 points.

Steers get big win over Brownwood

January 15, 2011

BROWNWOOD — The Big Spring Steers had reason to worry when Brownwood jumped out to an 11-2 lead in the first quarter.
Head coach Cliff Thompson said it reminded him of the Levelland game when that team made eight consecutive shots to start the game.
But just like in that Levelland game, the Steers withstood the early run and this time, they ended up with a huge 66-56 win at Brownwood to open district play.

Area basketball: Coahoma boys, girls struggle at C-City

January 15, 2011

Coahoma boys
COLORADO CITY — Coahoma head coach Kim Nichols said Colorado City was solid on defense and Friday’s game proved just that.
The Bulldogs dropped a District 3-2A road game at Colorado City 54-26, giving them their fourth district loss of the season.
Nichols said his team had a good first half, but the Bulldogs weren’t able to pull it all together for four quarters. They were only down by six at the half. A 21-point third from the Wolves didn’t help Coahoma, though.
The Bulldogs get their first crack at Denver City on Tuesday as the second half of district play approaches.

Ross, Stone make Lady Steers dangerous from 3-point line

January 14, 2011

Big Spring guards Valerie Ross and Mackenzie Stone live behind the 3-point line.

The two await the moment defenses present an opportunity and leave one of them open, and once Ross and Stone get started, it’s hard to stop them.

“When me and Mackenzie are in, we just click,” Ross said. “It’s not competition, but when she makes one, I want to make one. It just helps us out.”

Howard women lose in OT, men edge NMJC

January 14, 2011

HOBBS, N.M. — The Howard College women’s basketball team scratched and clawed its way back into a tough game against New Mexico Junior College Thursday night, but ultimately, a few key turnovers doomed the Hawks in a 76-70 loss in overtime.

The Hawks (15-4, 1-1 in WJCAC play) were down by 10 deep into the second half, but made a push to tie the game at the end of regulation. The Lady T-Birds (15-3, 1-0) had a chance to steal the win with the last shot of the second half, but as soon as that was off the mark, Howard had a chance.
