GAME STORY: Slow start dooms Coahoma in loss to Abernathy

COAHOMA — The Coahoma Bulldogs entered Friday’s showdown with District 4-3A Division II leader Abernathy at Bill Easterling Memorial Stadium with plenty on the line to end the regular season.

With a win, they would clinch a share of the district title for the first time since 2003 — and it would be only the third such accomplishment in the past 50 years, setting up a points differential tiebreaker with the Antelopes and Idalou to determine seeding.

The Bulldogs knew if they won by at least 14 points, they’d enter the playoffs as the top-seeded squad, while a 10-13 point win would send them into the postseason as the second seed. Anything less than that, or a loss, and Coahoma would head into the playoffs with the No. 3 seed.

In the end, it was Abernathy jumping out to a 21-point lead in the first quarter and rolling to a 49-19 win.

BIG COUNTRY PREPS GAME OF THE WEEK: Brownwood entertains red hot Glen Rose (w/ Evan Ren’s Big Country picks)

LAST WEEK: 51-10, .836
SEASON TOTAL: 131-42, .757

Football picks are something I take pride in and it irritates me to no end when I stink it up. So let’s just say, I burned some midnight oil to get that situation corrected last week. 

As a result, the column recovered with a solid .836 percentage in Week 3, salvaging my bruised ego after a disastrous Week 2 tally. In all, 51 of 61 area picks hit the mark last week, elevating my season’s record above 75 percent. 

That’s more like it.

Week 4 in the meantime, presents a lineup of some of the most difficult area picks we’ve had this season — including an explosive Glen Rose team facing Brownwood in our BCP Game of the Week. Let’s dive in, shall we? 

Here’s this week’s forecast:
