dream matchup between New Braunfels and Southwest in the regional Tom was too nice to say but Im If New Braunfels gets by the ornery GregoryPortland Wildcats tonight and Southwest out fights then the Mythical Bowl Unicorns and Dragons is liable to be more of a nightmare than a A week Southwests defense knew Canyon was going to run the and run and run and The Cougars were committed to the trying to keep the ball away from Southwests Southwest had 11 men within five yards of the line of piled up there close enough to see Kody Smiths And the Dragons really stopped the Cougars cold on ly 350 yards Ive seen better defense in the New Braunfels isnt as shy about throwing the ball as Canyon and the Unicorns ground game is as good as New Braunfels could score in the 50s against Southwests if Coach Jim Streety is so in But it wont stop The Dragons were pooped in the third quarter against Canyon and the Cougars were playing a lot of people two ways against Southwests one way With New Braunfels depth and the Unicorns will have the Dragons worn to a frazzle in the second And what about quarterback Ty the best high school quarter back Ive seen since Tommy Kramer he doesnt throw nearly as well with guys chasing him or in his face neither does Dan for that I also suspect that the Dragons may not get away with as much unabashed holding as they did against Canyons pass It looked like allstar wrestling in Blitzes from New Braunfels 34 defense wont be as easy to pick Things may get messy before its all And then the San Antonio folks wont be so Flash seems to be more appealing than good physical football to a lot of The champions New Braunfels Kim Wright didnt get to play as much as some members of the volleyball class of but she did get something none of the others got a conference cham Wrights the Sam Houston won the Gulf Star Con ference championship last SHSU needed only three matches in the doubleelimination conference tournament to win the She was the first player off the and recorded 38 kills and 10 aces in 36 See Page 9A Dallas plucks Cards IRVING AP The Dallas Cowboys have placed themselves in perfect position for the National Con ference Eastern Divisions stretch Quarterback Danny White rifled four touchdown passes in a 3517 Thanksgiving Day offensive feast over the Louis It in creased the Cowboys record to a half game ahead of the New York Giants in the National Conference This puts us in great position in our own said running back Tony We can control our own Danny was just When hes playing like that were going to be hard to Were ready for the big showdown now against the New York Giants 15 in Texas White hit 14 of 26 passes for 235 throwing touchdown passes of 53 and 16 yards to Tony 18 yards to Mike Renfro and 19 yards to Doug Hill also turned throwing a 42yard pass to Cosbie off a reverse to set up Dorsetts threeyard scoring We learned after the Chicago game a 440 thumping that if we dont play to the best of our ability we can get said Its a happy Thanksgiving for Dallas is now 1431 in Thanksgiv ing games and 40 against the Car dinals on the The Cowboys are 161 after Their next game is 8 against The 49 seeking to sweep Dallas for the first time since had their moments as quarterback Neil Lomax passed for 319 yards on 28 of including a fiveyard scoring pass to Roy Dallas led only 2117 at halftime as the Cardinals also got a twoyard touchdown run from Stump Mitchell and a 38yard field goal from Novo New York is the class of the East right said But right now we have a lot going for us and some time off Ito relax and get ready for the final three Landry said the Cowboys offense is coming on I feel a lot better after our last two Landry Danny has seven touchdown passes and I think our offense will have a lot more con White said he had a more positive Things are starting to fall together for White Our offense is finally getting it Landry Were starting to play well The offense is picking Landry was so happy with the vic tory that he gave the team three days off and they wont have to report for workouts until For it was the Cardinals eighth loss in their last nine games and Coach Jim Hanifans job is in question going into the final three We had great effort against Hanifan Im pleased and proud of the fact that the guys played so We just didnt take advantage of the opportunities we ;
