New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 12, 1982, New Braunfels, Texas Sports Unicorns rol New Braunfels dominates 280 By SCOTT HARING Wire editor The always close label on the New BraunfelsSeguin rivalry got blown right out of Unicorn Stadium Friday night along with the Seguin Matadors as the muchimproved Unicorns put together a dominating 280 We didnt expect to coach Jim Streety It just turned out that The brightest spot for the who evened their season record at was the play of the offensive After a week of concentrated practice following a disappointing showing against San the line opened the holes to get New Braunfels ground game The Unicorns racked up 292 yards rushing and were led by Earl who more than doubled last weeks performance with 128 yards and a pair of Craig Wersterfer contributed 54 Tudy Cantu 41 and Stoney Williams but the spotlight belonged to who would have racked up even more yards if a 52yard touchdown run at the end of the first half had not been called back on a notsoobvious clipping We were just tickled to death with the improvement in our offensive line and our entire Streety That defense held the Matadors to two first downs in the first half and held quar terback Jay Voss to a 6for35 passing The Unicorns first drive stalled at the Seguin and Jeff Reeh was short on a 43yard field goal After a trade of Seguin was held and forced to which led to the strangest play of the The Matadors regularly run the pun ting team in without a huddle just dash on to the line up and snap it and the Unicorns were caught changing It looked like 20 blue jerseys were on the field when the play I think thats a school record for most players on the field when the ball was Streety It looked like a Chinese fire Seguin declined the fiveyard penalty when the punt was taken at the NB New Braunfels then droved those 82 yards and scored 12 plays Earl Wilson taking it in from the one on fourthandgoal for the The drive was all running plays and featured Wilson dashes of 16 and 11 After another Seguin the Unicorns drove down to the Matador fouryard only to see Rene Ortegas field goal attempt sail wide Com bined with the calledback

second Wilson doing the honors from the Ortegas kick was and NB had Seguin in a deep At that Seguin dropped their ground game and went exclusively to the QB Voss completed just enough passes and ran just enough draws to Billy Ramzinsky to move the Matadors as close as the Unicorn But a fourth down incompletion gave the ball back to New Braunfels to end the Another Unicorn fumble gave the ball back to Seguin on the NB but Craig Wersterfer took it back right away with an The Unicorns then drove 73 yards for the final score to nail the Matadors coffin The drive was highlighted by Wersterfers only two pass completions of the a 27yarder to Chris Winkler and an 11yarder to Harry Backup tailback Ray Saenz got the score on a fiveyard and Ortegas kick made it Seguins wild passing game gave the final minutes some but three Matador drives stalled because of in The final threat was halted when a fourthandten pass on the Unicorn 11 with 18 seconds to go sailed over the receivers The 35 pass attempts by Seguin was a trial by fire for the young Unicorn and they passed it Im more excited about our im provement and our potential for con tinued improvement than the Streety He was also pleased
