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.

The Grady Wildcats knew they had to accomplish two things in order to win their six-man playoff game with Ira — they had to capitalize on their scoring opportunities and they had to contain Ira’s Lance Morris.

Unfortunately for the ‘Cats, they didn’t succeed on either front and ended up dropping a 56-43 decision Friday night in Memorial Stadium.

ROBERT LEE — When Robert Lee’s Foster Allen caught a 6-yard pass from Justin Gartman to give the Steers a 16-14 lead over defending state champion Garden City, the emotion and excitement was clear on their sideline.

But the composure and calmness was evident on Garden City’s sideline.

The 10-0 Ira Bulldogs will aim to end the Wildcats' playoff run immediately at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Memorial Stadium here in Big Spring.

He and the Wildcats are excited and, honestly, accustomed to having to beat the odds.

BSHS girls pick up 52-41 win over Lake View

November 10, 2010

SAN ANGELO — As expected, Big Spring women’s basketball coach Mike Warren has a lot to learn about his 2010-2011 Lady Steers.

But after Tuesday’s 52-41 win over San Angelo Lake View in San Angelo to start the season, he does know Cerbi Ritchey, Mckenzie Stone and Bridgette Tuitt are looking like the go-to scorers.

Ritchey turned in a double-double, posting 23 points and 13 rebounds. Stone had 16 points — including three 3-pointers — and was tough on the defensive end with five steals. Tuitt only had six, but Warren said she was still effective.
