Zammiello broke several tackles at the line of scrimmage and found no one standing between him and the goal line on another 34-yard scoring run Clemens running attack by far the best the Rangers have seen this season was too powerful See RANGERS Page TOA Needy' Lockhart nips Cougars B * TIM IN AI T S St#** linter LOCKHART What Friday night * game at Lockhart came down to w as a quest ion of w ants and needs Apparently the lax khan Lions had more of both on Homecoming night the Lions came up with the big offensive plays when they wanted them and the key defensive p^ays when they nee*ted them Thry got their just reward a 7 6 v Ktory over the ( any on Cougars This was a big big Uk*s said Ca nyon Coach Troy Burch All I can say is that it was a game I know we could have won lf we had done the right things It appears Lockhart wanted the ball game more than we lid It was thr third straight District 13 4 A setback for Canyon and by all 'ease and purpa*ses eliminated the * ougars of any chance at the playoffs w ith half of the schedule iefl to play The dead giveaway that fate was not with Canyon was the fact that thr i ougars controlled the football most t thr game had more than double the Lions output of first downs and 'hr learns were even in total offense Soot of that mattered when the ( ougars had a third and goal situa Don from thr Lion 3 and a chance to take the lead ami v.ontrwl of thr game with ti se% oods left in the third quarter Quarterback steven summers roll rd right arni tried to force a pass to Statistics Wei bi quart*/* C#*t»ow La<*h*rt W*r,f*g »um rn*f , th*, khan - McIntosh 67 nm Braies kks Drive 7® yards Splays 4* Canyon Austin 5 run run failed Drive TO yards I piays 3 56 T»am statistics CMS Lockhart First dawns 17 by pas* 0 2 by run 17 3 by pm*.tv 0 0 Rushes yards 51 213 IO 146 Patting y ard* 13 12 Pastes 5153 510-1 Punts 521 4 34 Fumble* I ami ll 1-1 Penalties yards 6-45 440 Pix setal ar Time 3i on 16 53 statistics ■ witling - ( ar yon 36 163 Austin 12 I ITI) Wii*un?ii summers 6 2 Lockhart McIntosh 13 ill ITI) H>ru>etl 13-42 Natal J 7 Braies I 7 Ratatat Canyon summers 3 132 15 yard* Austin 2-0-1 0 yards Lockhart Natal 7 IO I 82 sards ■ t«ei*tng I «rson Wuk*-* I* Mulhollan I 7 smal wood I -I I wa sr art vpru*e,l 5 4 Cranks I iii tailback Chad Austin near the goal line laxkhart free safety Colin Bruley stepped in front of Austin and po ketl off the pav> thus thwarting the ('ougars test storing opportune tv It was just a misread when we had a ret elver wide open said Burch of the play The ( ougars had driven 67 yards and used almost six minutes of the clock for nothing Both teams played to a scoreless tie in the first had The Cougars were fortunate to go into halftime with a tie Lockhart tailback Michael Spruiell went into the end zone on runs of 18 and 58 yards but had both called bac k due to clipping penalties Not long after the teams came back from the lockerroom the Lions made it into the end zone on a run that counted On the second play from scrimmage fullback E L McIntosh rumbled 67 yards for the game s first touchdown Braies kick ed the extra point and the Lions had a 7-0 lead with only 49 seconds gone in the third quarter It took that rude awakening for the Cougars to get in gear And nobody had more gears than Kelly Mulhollan The senior fullback led ail rushers with 163 yards on 26 cames and he gained 18 of the TO yards of the Cougars lone scoring drive The kids were doing a good job on the offensive line." said Burch "Kel iv was able to slide out lo the gap The fact that we ran him as much as we did allowed him to get accustom ed to them " Mulhollan gained 13 tough yards in two carries that gave the ( ougars a first and goal at the Lion 5 Mulhollan and guard Darryl McBride paved the way for Austin who took a pitch around left end and dove across the goal line Then came the communication failure that fatally wounded the Cougars It was a miscommunication of the number play signal that was wrong said Burch "We were sup posed to line up in extra point forma tton but it didn t get to the field that way It s nobody s fault It s just one of the many things that happened during the course of the night " What the Cougars did instead was run an unbalanced line to the left side of the field and quick pitched to Austin who was smothered by the Lion defense Canyon made one last stab in The fourth quarter Beginning at their own 23 with 4 38 left the Cougars drove to the l/yckhart 40 with the aid of two successful fourth down con versions The miracle play the Cougars needed was just a fingertip away Austin threw a halfback pass intended for Jimmy Wilson The ball was tipped and Wilson who had nothing in front of him but 30 yards of earth just missed coming up with the deflection on the next play.
