New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - April 2, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas 8New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung Tuesday, April 2,1985Gunslingers smash Breakers, 33-0 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The first two United States Football League games in this city were wild, exciting affairs. The Portland Breakers would just as soon forget about the third. “I can’t explain it,” Portland Coach Dick Coury said after his team was flattened by the underdog San Antonio Gunslingers 33-0 Monday night. “We just got totally beaten offensively and defensively. San Antonio played an excellent game and deserved to beat us and beat us good. It wasn’t even close.” While the game was a nightmare for Breakers’ officials, who are trying to establish the team’s identity in this town, it was a dream come true for the embattled Gunslingers and quarterback Rick Neuheisel. The former UCLA star, benched three weeks ago for failing to ignite the slumbering San Antonio offense, threw a pair of touchdown passes to lead the Gunslinger victory. “It’s no fun to go to the bench,” said Neuheisel, who completed 13 of 17 passes for 152 yards against the spiritless Breakers. “Anytime the offense stalls, the quarterback is the heavy. I’m just glad I got a chance to come back and I’m really happy the way things went.” “We haven’t looked very good in the last few weeks, especially on offense,” said San Antonio Coach Jim Bates. “We had to get some confidence.” San Antonio, 2-4, had scored just 46 points in its first five games and was a two-touchdown underdog against Portland, which dropped to 2-4 and lost for the first time in three games at home. The Breakers’ offense — plagued by turnovers, penalties and dropped passes — never was able to move against the San Antonio defense after the game’s opening minutes. “We caught Portland on a down night,” Neuheisel said. “They weren’t playing well. But I think if they’d played well we still would have beaten them. When we control the ball like that, we can beat anyone.” Portland quarterback Matt RobinsonStatisticsSan Antonio.......  7    6    11    •—33Portland......................... 0    0    0    0—0 Rrat Quarter SA - Hackett 14 pass from Neuheisel (Mike-Mayer kick), 11:36 Second Quarter SA - FG Mike Mayer 43,13 05 SA - FG Mike-Mayer 33,14:51 Third Quarter SA - FG Mike Mayer 38.10:26 SA — Richmond 32 interception return (Gordon pass from Neuheisel), 10:54 Fourth Quarter SA - Gordon 39 pass from Neuheisel (Mike-Mayer kick), :50 SA - Safety, ball snapped out of end rone. 11 26 A-19,882 completed 5 of 19 passes and threw three interceptions before leaving the game after threequarters.

MISSED FIELD GOALS - Portland. Mazzetti 31 Nick Mike-Mayer’s 33-yard field goal to give San Antonio a 13-0 lead with nine seconds left in the half. Neuheisel had hit Joey Hackett with a 14-yard scoring pass and Mike-Mayer had booted a 43-yard field goal to put San Antonio on top 10-0. Mike-Mayer added a 38-yard field goal with 4Mi minutes to play in the third quarter to make it 16-0. Seconds later, the Gunslingers’ Rock Richmond stole another Robinson pass and returned it 32 yards for a score with 4:06 left in the third quarter. Neuheisel’s two-point conversion pass to Jerry Gordon gave San Antonio a 24-0 advantage. Neuheisel turned the game into a rout with a 39-yard scoring pass to Jerry Gordon 50 seconds into the fourth period. The final score came, fittingly enough, when Portland snapped the ball out of the end zone in a shotgun formation for a safety with 3:34 to play. The Breakers managed only one serious scoring threat, driving to the San Antonio 14-yard line early in the game, but Tim Mazzetti missed a 31-yard field goal attempt. Portland running back Buford Jordan ran the ball twice before leaving the game with recurring hamstring problems.SA For Fwst downs ......................... 15    9 Scoreboard On the air TUESDAY TELEVISION 6 30 p m Hockey Philadelphia at New Yolk Rangers.

PA Laurie Simpson UM W. Ban Antonio St., New BraunfelsHawks shock Pistons By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Atlanta Hawks guard Glenn Rivers and his teammates played an April Fools’ joke on the Detroit Pistons. The Pistons, who outscored their three previous opponents 184-124 in the second half en route to victory, might have expected the Hawks to fold down the stretch like they had in their five previous meetings, all Detroit victories. But this time Atlanta had the last laugh as the Hawks turned a 57-51 halftime deficit into an easy 114-100 National Basketball Association victory. “We lost to the Pistons in two earlier games when we were up eight or nine points at the half and blew it down the stretch,” said Rivers, who scored 18 of his 22 points in the second half. “This time in the third quarter we knew we had to come out and keep pushing and pushing it like we were always playing behind.” Rivers said the Hawks played with more intensity than the Pistons because the game was crucial in Atlanta’s battle with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
