HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL New Braunfels midfielder Andy Holtman played headsup soccer on Tuesday night in a 21 playoff victory over Austin Bowie The New Braunfels Unicorns hadnt given up a point in four games In fact they hadnt trailed an opponent since Feb 13 against Alamo Heights So when the Austin Bowie Bulldogs 1131 surprised everyone with a goal at the 5minute mark in the first half naturally there was a bit of con cern among the faithful at Unicorn Stadium on Tuesday night Not to worry At the 10minute marie midfielder Kyle Reneau took a penalty kick and nailed the shot past Bowie goalie Daniel Smith for a 11 tie Given that spark the Unicorns 1623 scored again 17 minutes later when Josh Motz rico cheted a shot off the top post The ball bounced to midfielder Marco Sanchez who drilled the deflection into the net from 18 yards out The 21 lead was all New Braunfels needed to get past their secondround playoff opponent The defense stiffened in the second half holding Bowie scoreless the rest of the way and the Unicorns advanced to face Round Rock McNeil a 60 winner over Seguin Though unexpected the early deficit hardly rattled the playoffsavvy Uni corns It wasnt that big a deal at that Reneau said It was so early when they scored we knew there was plenty of time to come back Wed come back before in other games this season so we knew we just had to keep our heads up and get back into the game It wasnt our best effort but we did what we had to do to The Bulldogs came out aggressively in the second half but were unable to penetrate the Unicorns defensive
