Braunfels Unicorns coming off a 92 win over Alamo Heights head to Boerne for a threeday tournament By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Its early yet but New Braunfels base ball Coach Neal Miller likes what hes seeing in his districtfavorite Unicorns After dropping their first game against the Austin Lanier Vikings the Unicorns have put up solid showings against two tough opponents in the Pleasanton Eagles and Alamo Heights Mules The Unicorns were on the way to a win at 30 against the Eagles last Satur day when rains disrupted play On Tuesday against the Mules New Braunfels jumped out to 31 lead and looked to the skies for some support The clouds came through and the Uni corns went on to score six more runs for a 90 victory It was a good showing for Miller said We had strong pitching and got some timely hitting with men on base Thats encouraging against a quality team like Alamo Heights They are picked to finish second in their Jeff Gonzales struck out five to notch the win He pitched four innings and gave up two hits and a run Hector Molina entered the game as relief pitcher in the fifth inning getting three strike outs giving up two hits and a run Ron Villareal switched off playing second and third base and was a key defensive player Miller said Center fielder Jeff Juarez and catcher Bradley Clark also had strong defensive games On offense the Unicorns scored three runs in the first inning and two runs in the second inning to move in front car ly Gonzalez went 4 for 4 with one RBI Eric Martinez got two hits on four at bats with two RBIs Jeremy Moeller also went 2 for 4 Alamo Heights Josh Baugh hit a solo home run in the fifth inning The NB junior varsity came up short against the Mules JV 1210 The Unicorns next travel west on highway 46 to compete in the Boerne Tournament The host team is in the same bracket as the Unicorns which means the two clubs could meet this Saturday New Braunfels and Boerne would have to win two games to make to make it to the championship Boerne is the No 1 team in the state Class 4 rank ings That would be a great Miller said Wed know where we stand after The Smithson Valley Rangers who also enter the tournament face an imme diate test against Boeme Weather per mitting the Rangers play the Grey hounds at today Smithson Valley looks to rebound from a 53 loss to the Clemens Schertz Buffaloes The Rangers led 30 going in to the fifth inning when the Buffaloes mounted the comeback In other action the Canyon Cougars trek to Lockhart for a tournament All county baseball teams start disrict play on March 28 High school playoff hoops paint whole new picture Thomas Godley Two months ago Austin Reagan stepped onto New Braunfels High School gym for a basketball game that figured to be more of a clin ic than a contest The Raiders brought Chico Vazquez a 64 guard already signed by the Uni versity of Texas Sur rounding him was a posse of bigtime athletes includ ing Jimmy Moore and Anthony Jones The Unicorns their tallest play er at 63 would do well to stay within 20 points Vazquez had three blocked shots in the open ing minutes and as expected the Raiders won in a blowout Vazquez finished with 24 points and two highlight reel dunks As impressive as it was I wasnt convinced that Reagan was a statechampion caliber team nor that Vazquez was highprofile Division I college basketball material Reagan was quick and athletic but the pass ing wasnt crisp and no one stood out as a real jumpshooter Chico looked to be just another Texas star recruit who could definitely sky but lacked real dribbling skills and a pure jumpshot Six weeks later I witnessed a firstround play off game between SchertzClemens and Canyon The Buffaloes featured Tony Clark a 64 leaper who could soar with the best in the state Early in the second quarter Clark took an alleyoop on the run double pumped and slammed it home I readjusted my glasses to make sure I was see ing straight Surprisingly Clark was not the best player that night Teammate Eric Teske sank 5 of 8 three pointers to take the votlight John Clark pitched in 17 inside points and Clemens won by 30 points against a very solid Canyon club The Buffaloes 283 at the time looked like the kind of team that could go three to four games deep into the stale playoffs maybe con tend for it all Tony Clark who hadnt signed with a college team quietly established him self as the kind of player who might end up haunting the Longhorns down the line at some place like Texas Tech Naturally when Reagan and Clemens took to the court in San Marcos last week I was ready to put cash on the unheralded but balanced Buf faloes over the flashier Raiders A colleague was there to take that bet and point out the fallacy in comparing common opponents in different districts Its a different level of he said I was sticking by Clark and company Three minutes hadnt passed in the second quarter when Clemens took a fivepoint lead on a three pointer by Teske Then something incredible happened Reagan hit two three pointers in a row Whats going on here Against New Braunfels they had taken at least ten treys and made only one Now they cant miss Just like that Reagan was ahead of Clemens Moments later Vazquez snagged a rebound gave the outlet pass and raced down the left side Guard Keckei Murry dribbled just past the half court line and lobbed it toward the cylinder Yes I thought Just as suspected The Raiders throwing the ball away on an errant pass The ball went sailing above the rim and sud denly Vazquez was up there with it bringing it down for a monster dunk Two points and the foul Even Clemens players had to be wondering what the heck just happened It was over They never recovered Three minutes into the sec ond half and Reagan was up by 20 Final score Raiders 97 Clemens 75 It was not the same Raider team that came to New Braunfels in January These Raiders passed better stole more passes and hit many more treys Vazquez seemed to be playing a few inch es higher than his reputed 40inch vertical leap And yes he could hit the jumpshot 1 became a believer and was almost ready to put Reagan in the championship game until someone pointed out an interesting fact about Chico and the boys It turns out they were thoroughly handled by the Austin Anderson Trojans who by the way have their own Texas signee in Chris Clack not to mention a 67 Wake Forest signee in William Stringfellow It was hard to believe Anderson had beaten Reagan by more than 20 points but like my new saying goes Itsa whole different level in the Thomas Godley is spans
