first Inning Canyon Coach Ralph Behrend talked to his pitcher Marshall Taggart and catcher Brandon Cox The Cougars settled down the rest of the way but eventually lost 70 By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Getting behind early against a good defensive team is not what Canyon Coach Ralph Behrend envisioned head ing into Tuesday nights game against Kerrville Tivy But thats what exactly what happened The Cougars gave up live runs in the first inning and dug a hole that led to a 7 0 defeat at home Were the kind of team thai has to do things like bunt and move players on base with steals and good base Behrend said Once they got five runs in the first inning it limited our Marshall Taggart got in pitching trou ble early on for the Cougars After load ing the bases and allowing three runs Taggart turned over the pitching chores to Reagan George who gave up two more runs before closing out the inning The Cougar defense held tough for the next four innings George retired the side in the third and fifth inning while second baseman Brcttc Punish and first baseman Matt Behrend combined for double plays in the second and fifth innings In all Canyon only allowed eight hits and committed no errors was pleased with our defense dur ing the middle part of the Miller said If we can continue to keep that up and sharpen our hitting and pitching well be in good Meanwhile Kcrrvillc pitcher David Maroua who improved his record to 3 0 kept Cougar batters at bay Canyon mustered three hits on the night The Baseball standings District Smithson New I was pleased with our defense during the mid dle part of the game If we can continue to keep that up and sharpen our hitting and pitching well be in good Ralph Behrend Canyon baseball coach only scoring threat came in the fourth inning when Ricky Boehle led off with a successful bunt stole second base and reached third on an error The threat end ed with Boehle getting tagged out at home Kerrville added two security runs in the sixth inning Marc Castijella took over the pitching reigns and finished out the final two innings for Canyon The Cougars next trek to Belton for a tournament and first round game against Waxahachie at Thursday Soccer game marred tyffisfFhas no place for winners Thomas Godley As most of us know soccer emphasizes playing with the feet as opposed to the fists It seems simple enough but the rule was severe ly bent last Friday when players from Canyon and Smithson Valley abandoned the legs and turned to armswinging fisticuffs during a heat ed district soccer match One parent described it as a benchclearing brawl that was as ugly as high school sports Another spectator said she was appalled that some fans cheered on their kids and were smiling and remorseless as they exited the sta dium Strangely enough only one player is under scrutiny for disciplinary action Even more dis turbing is that one team was handed the win Canyon which held a 10 lead with about 35 minutes left in the game when the referees decided to call it off apparently comes away with an improved district record The University Interscholastic League leaves it up to district officials to handle such matters Coaches and administrators havent decided whether to let it stand as a for Canyon and defeat for Smithson Valley A ruling may come once officials look at the game film this week Thats much too long for this plain and sim ple issue No way can any team be rewarded in a contest cut short by violence What kind of message does that send First it says to a team Get a lead and pro voke a fight Its a sureshot way to stop the game and keep your opponent from mounting a Second it detracts from the seriousness of what took place Friday night A player was punched in the face Fortunately he escaped serious injury His safety above all should be lingering in the minds of all those involved in the fracas A discussion on winners and losers only overshadows the fact that a young man was attacked in front of parents and peers The family of that injured player has con sidered filing charges No doubt they were shocked and hurt by the incident Neither team should look at the episode from a winloss standpoint and the game should be nullified It matters even less in this case that Canyon was already assured a playoff spot and Smith son Valley had long been removed from the dis trict race Both soccer coaches said they have talked about what went astray that night They agreed it was an isolated incident spurred in the heat of the Soccer has taken a beating in the public eye in year past Neither coach wants to tarnish what is an otherwise healthy competitive and growing sport Granted these arent the first high school athletes to let emotions get away from them in a heated rivalry It happens in football baseball and basketball But lets not brush aside a sobering incident that occurred last Friday The players knew what was going on and more than one kid should be held accountable Most of all we shouldnt let one team come away with the unfair notion of having won the game Thomas Godley is spans editor for the Her aldZeitung Texas Tech knows little about NIT opponent By MARK
