them The players want to win this one no matter what the situ ation Kenny Rotzler said It doesnt matter whats on the line because CanyonNew Braunfels is always a big game Theres been a couple of years when New Braunfels had some great teams and we were not so great but went over there and gave them a tough For which already has secured a playoff spot a win would give them the district crown The title would be their first since the 1960s according to Rotzler Weve been asking around here and cant seem to find out when the last time Rotzler said A Canyon victory also would be the first at Unicorn gym in more than 15 years New Braunfels coach Larry Wilkins whose teams have never lost to the Cougars at home said the game repre sents a chance to achieve one of two goals We set two team

five games in a row New Braunfels has taken four straight Rangers trek to Bastrop urge on Canyon By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor After a heartbreaking loss to Lockhart in overtime on Tuesday the Smithson Valley Rangers 44 find themselves in the position of rooting for Canyon A Cougar victory over New Braunfels 62 would be the only way for the Rangers to have a chance of squeezing into the playoffs A New Braunfels win means the Rangers are mathematically eliminated A loss means the Unicorns would travel to Smithson Valley next Tuesday with only a onegame edge and the possibility of falljng into a tie for the district ruruierup spot Canyon can do us a great favor by winning its last two Ranger coach John Valenzuela said We no longer control our own destiny All we can do now is hope the Comal Indepen dent School District teams win out the rest of the First the Rangers must take care of business on the road against the Bastrop Bears tonight The Bears were no match for Smithson Valley in the teams first meeting two weeks ago The Rangers won 6244 Freshman Jason Ivey will make his first start for the Rangers tonight Wed really like to play more than two more Valenzuela said Its unfortunate were in this situation but theres no point in talking about what could have been We have to go out and majce the best of the remaining season In a way I feel fortunate because if you had told me at the beginning of the season we could have four losses and still have a chance at the playoffs I wouldnt have bought The Rangers four district losses have been by an average of four points The coach added that making it into the play offs would be a good way to end the season and boost the program for next year We could build on something like that because we have several players coming he said The courts are on Highway information call 6257738 46 For more Cowboys sign Irvin for 5year million deal IRVING Texas AP A fiveyear million contract makes Dallas Cowboys
