District 2-4A Div. I Week 9 Report: Baeza fuels Big Spring to impressive win over Andrews

Big Spring 48, Andrews 19 — Gabriel Baeza made a triumphant return to the Steers lineup, passing for 404 yards and five touchdowns and rushing for an additional 87 yards to lift coach Cannon McWilliams squad to a district-opening rout of the Mustangs.

Baeza, who missed Big Spring’s nondistrict finale against Pampa (a 58-7 loss), rallied the Steers (6-2, 1-0) from down 19-14 at halftime with four unanswered touchdowns to start the second half. And backup Gavin Padron led a scoring drive at the end to cap the thorough victory.

Kaegen Mitchell (12-132, 2 TDs receiving) and Eli Cobos (8-110, 3 TDs) were Baeza’s favorite targets in the passing game, while Cobos also threw a scoring pass to kick off the scoring in the first quarter. Defensively, the Steers limited Andrews (2-6, 0-1) to 360 yards and intercepted Mustangs quarterback EJ Lopez four times.
