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.

Show and Prove: District 5-3A play begins for Steers

January 14, 2011

After practice Thursday, Big Spring guard Luke Adams and boys’ basketball coach Cliff Thompson caught themselves in a conversation, mapping out different scenarios of how the Steers can clinch a playoff berth or, even better, win District 5-3A.

Actually, it’s been a recurring topic among the Steers this week.

Howard basketball in New Mexico for date with T-Birds

January 13, 2011

Howard women
Howard College women’s basketball head coach Earl Diddle believes New Mexico Junior College is the team to beat in the Western Junior College Athletic Conference.

There’s reason to believe him, too, the way he describes the Lady Thunderbirds.

“I really feel that they’re one of the top teams in the league,” Diddle said. “They beat South Plains by 20 in the (WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament). They pose a lot of problems for us. They shoot the 3 well and they have very, very good inside play. So they pose a lot of problems for everyone in the league.”

Stanton girls, boys steal wins at Forsan

January 12, 2011

FORSAN — Forsan girls’ basketball coach Robert Hillger didn’t have much explanation for Tuesday’s 44-41 loss to Stanton at home.

He said Stanton beat Forsan fair and square.

“I couldn’t figure out our identity Tuesday. At the beginning of the game, really the first half, we’re pushing and running and they’re making shots and we’re not. We like to push and run and we were down five (at the half) anyway, so I was like ‘Alright, we’re going to slow down the pace of the game. We’re going to dictate what we want to do and not let them dictate what we want to do.”

Late shot sends Howard men past South Plains

January 11, 2011

The defending national champions just needed a little bit of daylight.

In Monday’s WJCAC opener, South Plains looked like the better team for most of the game, but once Howard College found an opportunity to steal a win, the Hawks didn’t waste it.

“We feel like we just got outplayed for three-fourths of the game,” Howard head coach Mark Adams said. “But the last eight minutes, we showed some aggression. We were much more physical with South Plains and we hit some big shots.”

Howard women stave off South Plains

January 11, 2011

Excuse the Howard College women’s basketball team for feeling a little thwarted in Monday’s WJCAC opener against South Plains.

The Hawks didn’t see a 2-3 zone defense at all in their first meeting with the Lady Texans in the WJCAC Pre-Conference Tournament, and they hadn’t seen one in a while. So they were a little surprised to see it Monday night.

“It kind of threw us off a little bit, but we got it under control,” said Twyla Ards, who had 10 points.

Facing the favorites: Lady Steers open district play with top-notch Wylie squad

January 7, 2011

Big Spring girls’ basketball coach Mike Warren knows not many are picking the Lady Steers to win District 5-3A. The “favorites” title belongs to their opponents at 6 p.m. today at Abilene Wylie.

Warren is more comfortable in the role of spoiler and believes his team has a chance to turn some heads,too.

“I think it’s up for grabs and I think Wylie’s going to get beat,” he said of how District 5-3A might play out. “I think anything can happen. I think Brownwood can knock off Wylie and we can, too. I think it’s important to win your home games and defend your home court.

Showtime: Big Spring native Tannehill looks to put finishing touches on Aggies’ season

January 6, 2011

It’s not uncommon to see college football apparel throughout West Texas, or anywhere in Texas for that matter. Stickers, jerseys and shirts are just a few things fans use to display their pride.

But in Big Spring, the No.17 in maroon is just a little more popular these days. Texas A&M quarterback and Big Spring native Ryan Tannehill is just a little more popular these days.

Steers at home against Lubbock Cooper

January 4, 2011

While Big Spring boys’ basketball head coach Cliff Thompson is counting down the days until District 5-3A play begins, he’s also making sure the Steers are fully equipped for the ride.

That includes making sure every aspect of his team is at its highest level before that Jan. 14 matchup at Brownwood and adding a few new wrinkles to the offense.

The Steers have been adding new plays and hope to test them in tonight’s game against Lubbock Cooper at 7:30 p.m. in Steer Gym.

Hawks back on court after layoff

December 31, 2010

Earl Diddle’s voice was hoarse after all the screaming he did in each of the five practices the Hawks have had the last three days.

The Howard College women’s basketball coach said the Hawks have been working hard, evidenced from Diddle’s hoarse voice. But it’s probably warranted considering the 27 days in between games for the Hawks.

The drought ends against South Mountain Community College at 2 p.m. Saturday in Phoenix. It’s the first of three games in Phoenix. Matchups against Phoenix College at 2 p.m. Sunday and Glenndale Community
