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.

Big Spring guard Luke Adams scored 42 points as the Steers dropped a close game to Odessa Permian at home.
A lot of Adams’ points came from solid free-throw shooting. The senior hit 18-of-19 shots from the free-throw line. Regardless, Adams performance impressed first-year head coach Cliff Thompson. Right behind Adams was Tristain Clay with 13 points.

Holliday on tap for Stanton in playoffs

November 19, 2010

STANTON — Stanton was excited to be this far into the playoffs like many other teams. That ended quickly with a loss to Olton.

The Buffaloes don’t talk much about last year, making it a point to concentrate on what’s in front of them.

But with a senior laden squad and a strong defense, it’s safe to say the Buffs don’t want to let the chance to keep playing pass them by this time.

Getting off to a good start was one of the main objectives for the Big Spring Lady Steers in Tuesday’s game against Fort Stockton in Steer Gym.

How’s a 17-1 run for starters en route to a 60-18 win?

“We talked about that since the last game,“ BSHS head coach Mike Warren said. “We got good shots against their zone just passing the ball around and inside to Cerbi Ritchey, inside to Diamond Mayes. That opened up stuff on the outside.”
