Sports Editor Pflugerville head coach Mike Honeycutt said before the game that the Panthers would keep it on the ground with clockconsuming drives The passing game would be merely a side note a way to keep the defense honest The Panthers stuck to that rushing strategy by and large but it was two plays through the air that made a world of difference Friday night as Pflugerville blanked New Braunfels 210 at Unicorn Stadium Head coach Tim Kingsbury who was hoping for a stronger debut knew the Panthers would come right at the defense with power football They didnt do anything we hadnt prepared for at Kingsbury said They just executed well and made the plays when they had to We had trouble running the ball and on defense we gave up those two big As predicted the Panthers came out run ning The opening drive followed script with running backs Arnold Paul Luna David Jackson and fullback Justin Sampleton each getting carries and finding lanes in the Uni corn defense In between the traps sweeps and counters sophomore quarterback John Ramirez con nected on a 12yard pass to Lance Fink Sam pleton capped the 11play series with a 3yard plunge up the middle Allan Bielhes extra point and the Panthers led 70 midway through the first quar ter The Unicorns meanwhile struggled to muster a first down on their opening possession The Panther defense led by linebacker Solomon Hapshie kept Unicorn running back Kelly Garza in check limiting him to 14 yards on sev en carries in the first half With their third possession the Panthers needed only five plays to extend the lead On second down at their own 28 Ramirez rolled to his right and found receiver Jack Frost on a short flag pattern The 61 163pound senior slipped a tackle near midfield and sprinted down the sideline into the endzone one of those plays we were ready for but just didnt make the Kingsbury said We were concerned it might happen with our secondary being so young There were four guys back there playing in their first varsity game They gave up some long plays but they got better as the night went on and I think they grew from the On the next series the Unicorns ran three plays and punted The Panthers threatened to HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Pflugerville defensive back John Martinez 33 stops New Braunfels running back Kelly The Panthers held Garza to 29 yards on 13 carries in a 210 win over the Unicorns on Friday score again before halftime on a drive high lighted by an 18yard run by Luna to the 43 yard line They reached the Unicom 27 before strong safety Kyle Reneau who finished as the Unicorns defensive standout with 14 tackles came up with a drivestopping interception at the 17 Three plays later however the Panthers were back in business after recovering a fumble by Garza at the New Braunfels26 yard line Fac ing a possible 21point deficit the Unicorn defense stiffened recording two sacks and send ing the teams into the locker room at 140 At that point New Braunfels had 19 yards rushing to the Panthers 125 yards on the ground For the game the Panthers rushed for 203 yards to the Unicorns 47 In the third quarter the momentum appar ently had taken a huge swing Safety Jason Hahn intercepted a pass at midfield to set up the Unicorn offense The drive had stalled on third down but punter Clay Skaravosky faked a punt and threw to a wideopen Jason Hahn who bolted 43 yards for an apparent touchdown to pull the Unicorns to within 147 New Braunfels fans were thinking come back but the play was negated by an illegal mandownfield penalty The Unicorns were forced to punt and the Panthers took over for what would be the gameclinching score On second down at the Unicorns 43 Ramirez got off a pass in the face of a blitz and hit Arnold in stride for the final touchdown Down 210 heading into the fourth quarter Unicorn quarterback David Simmonds was forced to pass and the Panther defense was ready for it Simmonds went 5for15 for 75 yards and no interceptions David had a solid Kingsbury He had some passes that were dropped and thats something we have to improve on Pllugerville started stacking the line on defense when our passing game wasnt Despite the setback Kingsbury said several young players came through with big games He praised the play of center James Boyd and line backer DeAngelo Aguirre For the night the Unicorns intercepted two passes recovered a rumble and blocked a field goal We had some opportunities with turnovers that didnt turn into Kingsbury said It was a tough loss and the players are down but they realize they can do a whole lot better We didnt play to our potential We know there are things that can be corrected and I feel strong ly that the team will bounce back against Seguin next The Unicorns are at home again on Friday The game begins at No 5 Westlake dumps Canyon By DAVID DE KUNDER Staff Writer It did not take long for the Austin Westlake Chaparrals to show the Canyon Cougars why they are one of the best Class 5A teams in the state Highly regarded Westlake running back Ryan Nunez found a seam in the right side of the Cougar defensive line and raced 87yards untouched for a toucdown on the games second play The score came 60 seconds into the game and set the tone for Westlakes 3814 victory over Canyon at Cougar Stadium on Friday night The Chaparrals used the nifty running of Nunez the precision passing of quarterback Drew Brees and the receiving of Nunez and Ben Peays to put their offense into high gear Nunez a 5 10 senior with speed gained 177 all purpose yards 139 yards rushing and 38 yards receiving and scored three toucdowns Brees passed for 194 yards on 1118 pass completions and one touchdown Peays was a nightmare for the Canyon secondary as he caught six passes for 95 yards and hauled in one score On the night Westlake garnered 311 yards of total offense Nunez was outstanding running the Canyon Coach Larry Nowotny said They Westlake are improved at the quar terbacking and receiving positions this year Their offense put tremendous pressure on our defense When they put that kind of pressure on you it is hard to stop them I believe our defense played good in some spots but they eventually wore us Unfortunately for the Cougars they did not have the impres sive offensive numbers the Chaps had Canyon could never get their offense into sync in the first half The aggressive Westlake defense held senior running back Ttenady Offermann to 53 yards on 14 carries Quarterback Reagan George and wide receiver Ricky Boehle provided the highlights for Canyon fans when they hooked up on scores of 30 and nine yards However George had a tough night in the backfield as he was sacked three times by 210 pound senior tackle Philip Wood and held to 65 yards passing Westlake broke the game open in the second quarter The Chaparrals scored 21 points in the quarter to take a 28 0 lead at the half Westlake used a 15play 61yard drive capped off by halfback Brant Landrys sixyard score to go up 140 with in the period The Chaps next score was set up when cornerback Ben Dozier picked off a George pass at the Cougar 35 and ran it three yards to the 32 Six plays later Nunez ran off right tackle for three yards to put Westlake up 210 with left in the half However the Chaps were not done before the half Westlake got the ball at their own 24 with left Brees proceeded to HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Hauling in two touchdowns Canyon receiver Ricky Boehle was a bright spot for the Cougars in a 3814 loss complete three passes for 66 yards during the drive He con nected with Nunez for a 16 yard gain to the 40 Then Brees found David White for a 17 yard gain to the Canyon 40 with 33 seconds left On the next play Brees rolled out to his left and hit Peays on the flag route for a 33yard touchdown pass with left They executed better than we Nowotny said Our team made some mental mistakes and errors in discipline They were able to capitalize on our mistakes A good football team does The Cougars came out fired up in the second half George hit Boehle for a 30yard score on a play action pass with in the thiid Boehle made a leaping catch at the 5 in front of Peays who plays strong safety on defense and ran it in for the touchdown On the nine play 75 yard scoring drive George carried three times for 22 yards including his 11 yard scamper to the West lake 37yard line Westlake added two more scores on Nunezs three yard run and Jeff Bakers 37yard field goal with left in the game Canyon scored with left when George found Boehle on See COUGARS page 9 Ivey runs wild over Southside Smithson Valley running back gains 200 yards in 346 rout over Cardinals By ROBERT STEWART Special to the HeraldZeitung Smithson Valley running back Tim Ivey picked up where he left off last year with a 200yard rush ing game against San Antonio Southside in what could be his second consecutive 1000yard sea son Ivey helped give Smithson Val ley control of the game early Fri day with three touchdowns before halftime Brad Triesch secured the lead with a 90yard touchdown return of the secondhalf kickoff We had some first game jitters in a lot of places and werent as sharp as we would like to be on either side of the ball but I tell you what were not going to apologize about 346 Were dang glad to have it and were looking forward to next said Larry HilJ thirdyear Smithson Valley head coach Hill emphasized that not all credit should go to the offensive ball carriers We felt like our offensive line did a good job picking up their blitzes and he said Theyre kind of a gamblingtype defense and theyre going to make some plays on you Youve got to understand that coming in but we realized that maybe that pre sents you for the opportunity for some big plays Hill said the real stars that make things work make their con tribution on the offensive line I was real proud of our did a great job We had John Aldaba at center Josh Harris at right tackle Daniel Lewis at left tackle Ricky Martinez at right guard and Kevin Kropp at left guard and our two tight ends Travis Smith and Sam Teuton They just did a great Southside took the opening kickoff but was unable to convert The Rangers received the ensuing punt and look over on their own 33 Ten plays later Ivey ran the ball in from 11 yards out to make the score 60 with left in the first quarter The extra point attempt by Billy Grindle missed wide The Cardinals mounted an impressive drive on the next possession but the Smithson Valley defense proved up to the test Southside drove from their 35 to the Ranger 7 before turning the ball over on downs with an incomplete fourthdown pass See RANGERS page 9 ;
