Canyon Coach David Taylor figured Clemens as perhaps the best team rn the district Now that his team has met the Buffaloes, he is not about to change his mind Clemens broke open a tight game in the third quarter by allowing only five Canyon points as the Buffaloes rolled to a 70-47 victory at Cougar Gym Tuesday night For Canyon, the beginning of the end came in the final 30 seconds of the first half, with Clemens enjoying a 30 27 lead The Cougars were work mg to get off the last shot of the half and to possibly pull w ithin a point Instead, a loose ball foul gave Dan Bower a one an-one opportunity at the free throw line and Clemens a 32-27 lead Another loose ball was picked up by Steve Sassman for the Buffaloes under the Cougar basket, resulting in a layup by Jason McDor-man on a fast break just before the buzzer "We played excellent for the first 15 minutes and 3U seconds,” Taylor said Then it was just ‘Lost in Space ‘ We tried to get the lead down to one w ith the last shot and at worst go into the locker room with a three point lead Instead of three points or one we wind up dow n by seven ” The Cougar woes extended into the third quarter as Clemens outscored Canyon 18 5 “It was just another poor nigh' of shooting Lately it s happened to us in the first quarter, but tonight it was the third, ” I ayior said Jimmy Wilson, Canyon’s leading scorer on the season, fouled out of the game with four points W ilson picked up his fourth personal foul a minute and a half into the third quarter, then picked up his fifth battling for a defensive ret*>und with 5:51 left in the quarter with his substitute in front of the scorer s table waiting to enter the game At that point, the Buffaloes were in the bonus situation while Clemens Davis. “Nika Schmidt had one of her most aggressive games of the season ” Kelli Davis wound up with IO points to offer double digit offensive support Stacey Scheel and Debbie W’elty chipped in eight apiece. Almost all the Unicorns managed to get into the scoring column New Braunfels, now 3-2 in district, will be off this weekend, but will make a trip to Schertz next Tuesday for a 7:30 pm game against the Clemens Lady Buffaloes New Braunfels 79, Lockhart 26 NEW BRAUNFELS Docs 16, Torres 15.

Sassman and Bower were able to penetrate Ca nyon’s defense for easy layups, while later in the game the Buffaloes were able to take advantage of a series of defensive errors by hitting easy buckets from around the perimeter Canyon didn t help itself in the first half by shooting just three of eight from the free throw line "We shot horribly from the free throw line That and our inability to pick up their penetrator were the main reasons that kept us from being ahead in the first half.” Tay lor said The Cougars trailed 15-10 with two minutes remaining in the first quarter but Lance Jonas banked in two of his team-high 12 points and Kay Kaderli fed Thomas Serold w ith a pass for an easy layup Then Kaderll followed up a missed free throw by Jonas for another bucket to trim Clemens’ lead to 17 16 heading into the second quarter The victory ties the Buffaloes for the lead in the District 13-4 A s»an dings with a 3-0 mark while the Cougars fall to 12 Canyon will travel to Smithson Valley for an 8 p rn game on saturday MOI STAIN CITY Smiths»n Valley received something less than a holiday greeting from the folks in the Buda Kyle area upon a Tuesday night visit In fact the Rebels in town were downright omer\ The Rebels ambushed the Hangers from all sides to roll to a 71 4 > District EMA victory It was almost as good as done after the first quarter as Hays jumped to a whopping 21-3 lead "You've got to remember they re just kids.” said Hanger Coach Huger Kraft There are definite reasons why the score was like it was Hopefully we will take care of it by Saturday The extra day of prat Hee will help ” The Hangers host Canyon Saturday night David Hall was tfw* univ Hanger to score in double figures with 12 Kraft said Hall has fx*»*n the most consts tent of his players over the past few games Smithson V alley now ti 2 in district will try to (limb tun k into the race against Canyon I fie freshman game will t**gin at * p rn followed by the junior varsity Hie varsity teams are s* heduied to clash at approximately Hp ill Next w««ek ttw* Hangers will play at Kerrville I ivy and tn>st New Braunfels Hays): Smithton volt** 45 SMITHSON V \l i t V Has \: < urn* » Franz k Rn hard*, at « Mono 4 I .as ( Diem 2 Buckland 7 I'ai ad inn Herring By TIM WAITS Staff Writer When it was over, both Ixx’khart and New Braunfels wound up with 16 field goals But the Lions hit the im port ant free throws down the stretch to provide the difference in their 49 4,> victory over the Unicorns Tuesday night at Unicom Gym It w as the second time In two weeks that the Lions have edged the Unicorns The bad part afniut this Unicom loss is that it counts in the District 13 4A standings and is the third league loss in three games “I thought we were going to gel over the hump said I mcom Coach Allan Luksa But we could!) t con vert and just ran out of time They mad** the crucial free throws and we missed them After trailing the entire game the Unicorns knotted the score 33 U This came following a Darrel Hunter three point play and then a John Schwarz jumper from 15 feet wit! seconds left in the third quarter Lockhart s Kevin Willenburg hit a field goal but Schwarz tied Uh* score by converting two free throws before quarter s end Although it was brief the I nu oms tasted the lead for the fir'd time after Schwarz s strong drive to the I asset resulted in a field goal to Often th* final period The Lions Brandon Bruni h answered w uh a but ket from Hie m-s Hunter put the I ntcoms ahead for the last time with 6 24 remaining bv making a pair of free throw-.
