Braunfels Unicorns For the Canyon Cougars it was tough to swallow Just two weeks ago the two teams hooked up in a game that left fans at Unicom Field on the edge of their seat With two outs in the top of the seventh Canyons Jerry Van Noy slid into home plate only split second before being tagged by Bradley Clark giving the Unicorns a 54 victory Since that game the Unicorns have gone 31 while Canyon has fallen 13 The scenario moves to Cougar Field today at 7 Both teams are coming off losses on Tues day The Unicorns dropped a 23 decision at Hays while the Cougars were dealt an 86 setback at Smithson Valley The Cougars face a more desperate situation than the Unicorns Though not mathematically eliminated from the playoff picture it would take a major turn of fortune for Canyon to work its way Smithson Valley falls to San Marcos In softball playoffs The Smithson Valley Rangers season came to an end Thursday njght against the the San Marcos Rattlers The Rangers district 535A runners up
