this magnitude but make no mis take this years Wurst Bowl features a def inite oddson favorite The Canyon Cougars coasting on a fivegame win streak and a huge victory over Smithson Valley last Friday are the solid pick over struggling New Braunfels 15 01 in tonights district matchup Though the Unicorns have won 15 of 17 games in the series since 1976 the Cougars are geared this year with the talent experience and momentum to cut into that lopsided edge Among the main reasons is a balanced Cougar offense which averages 320 yards and 25 points per game The defense is allowing only 12 points per game in the past five weeks New Braunfels meanwhile enters on a four game skid in which opponents have pounded out an average of 35 points and over 275 rush ing yards per game Combine those statistics and Canyon at least on paper figures to come up big Harris Ratings experts add schedule strength and team records to the formula to predict weekly high school games The latest line lists the Cougars as a 23point favorite New Braunfels coach Tim Kingsbury a vet eran of at least a dozen Wurst Bowls admits Canyon has the momentum Still he has wit nessed too mahy games between the two teams to put much stock in Harris prediction DEShannon Thayer Sr DTKllnt Kingsbury Sr WUBDeAngeto Agulrre Jr SLBGrant Simpson So MLBGrant Hill Sr MilsChris Ryder Jr Reneau Jr FSUnce Herring Sr

line bring a balanced attack tonight against New Braunfels To be honest I was kind of surprised to see Canyon favored that high over Kingsbury said Were going in as the underdog but this game usually is close regardless who is con sidered the underdog or Canyon ended a nineyear drought by posting a 170 shutout in 1993 en route to a 100 regu lar season mark The Cougars only other series win was 2014 in 1984 In last years Wurst Bowl New Braunfels edged Canyon 97 at Unicorn Stadium On a rainsoaked field neither team was able to effectively finish drives although the Unicorn offense outgained Canyon 340 yards to 124 yards The story could be different this time Canyon 20 NB Canyon 14 1MB 20 Canyon play 10 Canyon Q NB19 canyon 17 NBO SN8 9 Canyon 7 Quarterback Reagan George receiver Ricky Boehle and running back Tre nady Offermann are no strangers to the endzone Boehle 63 senior with speed has five touchdown catches and is hauling in passes at 20yards a has crossed the goal line five times and has 665 on 101 carries George has thrown for 927 yards nine touch downs and only two interceptions Junior tailback David Simmonds coming in with 473yards on 88 rushes gives the Unicorns a steady ball carrier and a breakaway threat in the backfield Quarterback Buddy Martens making his second start of the season gained valuable experience at the offensive helm last week against Hays And not to be overlooked is a Cougar defense that has shut down potent attacks in recent weeks Linebacker Mike Broaddus and cor nerbacks Brett Parrish and Hector Torres head a quick and experienced unit I think the defense could be their Kingsbury said The media tends to give the offense most of the attention but their defense is very good and deserves a lot of credit for their The key for the Unicorns Kingsbury said will be keeping the Cougars offense contained early oniJn the last three games the Unicorns have fallen behind 140 but have outslored their opponents inthe fourth quarter Canybn has
