cold front to blow into Central Texas late Friday For the New Braunfels Unicorns it came a few hours early at the Alamodome Missing nine of 11 shots from the field in the third quarter the Unicorns fell behind by 22 points and couldnt make up the deficit as top ranked Round Rock McNeil rolled to a 5745 win The loss came despite a sparkling defensive effort that saw the Unicorns hold the highscor ing Mavericks to 17 points below their season average However the problem continues to be the teams periodic cold spells on offense Were going to put together a whole game one of these Wilkins said Defensively we played well but we just get to those points where we cant seem to score Its Early on the Unicorns stayed close trailing 1514 at the end of the first quarter McNeil led 2821 at halftime

to make some adjustments in j The Unicorns are still looking to end a five game skid They have another chance on Tues day at at home against Central Catholic This was a loss but a good experience for the kids to play against a quality team in the Alam Wilkins said The players were upbeat and I think if we keep working hard before its all said and done we will at least have a say in the district Eagles rookie silent on Irvin AP Sports Writer VERO BEACH Fla AP Bobby Taylor has learned a few things about Michael Irvin after facing the Dallas Cowboys twice this season Hes just not saying what those lessons are I dont want to make any comment about the rookie cor nerback said as the Philadelphia Eagles prepared to play the Cowboys in Sundays NFC divisional playoff Over and over Taylor was asked about what he did to contain Irvin in the Eagles 2017 upset over Dallas on Dec 10 Over and over Taylor kept quiet Taylor has reason to crow He won NFC defensive player of the week honors for limiting Irvin to three catches for 40 yards and no touchdowns And he wonthat honor again for his work against another Pro Bowl receiver Herman Moore in last weeks 5837 wildcard victory over the Detroit Lions But Taylor refuses to boast Its like last he said When the game comes everything will be said and done The few observations Taylor have given this season have been brief and generic and usually offered with head bowed and a soft voice Instead others are talking about him Owner Jeffrey Lurie called Taylor one of the Eagles biggest surprises this season NFL playoff glance Divisional

with praise said Taylor has improved a great deal Rhodes biggest complaints about Taylor concerned his erratic tack ling and his inconsistent practice habits By concentrating more at practice Taylor has improved his tackling I think it had more to do with Taylor said When I first started out in camp my practicing wasnt very good I think watching some of the older guys seeing how they practiced that makes me want to pick it up a little bit Michael Irvin SAN ANTONIO The Canyon Cougars used a 167 run in the third quarter to break open a onepoint game at halftime and cruise past the Central
