Unicorns scalpSports Pay Bl Apaches, 54-21 Cowboys not afraid to use reserve backs By DAVID WINDER Sports Editor The New Braunfels Unicorns dominated the Gonzales Lady Apaches from beginning to end in winning 54-21 Wednesday night in Unicom Gym. Nola Muir led the Unicorns with 16 points. All 11 members of the New Braunfels team put points on the board. “It was a nice win,” Unicom coach Larry Schulte said. “We looked really good. I was really happy with our offense and our transition game.” The stifling Unicorn defense helped the transition game get going as time and time again the Unicorns converted steals into points. The Lady Apaches hit just three field goals in the first half. “Defensively we held them to 21 points for the game and seven at half-time,” Schulte said. “You can’t ask for much more than that.” And the Unicorn defense turned the game into a track meet when the Lady Apaches could not keep up. “I think we did better on our transition game,” Schulte said. “Transition buckets are going to be the key. Just like free throws you need to get a couple of transition buckets to win games.” The Unicorns also are going to Sports Briefs Mig govs from goat to boro ob labor aunt mint la nae hid oaaa lanrwi nvv wwimia aaa a vaawaaw Baseball’s four long years of labor strife ended when owners dramatically reversed course and ratified the same collective bargaining agreement they rejected just three weeks ago. Worn out by the most bitter battle in the history of professional sports, one that wiped out the 1994 World Series, owners approved a contract that ensures labor peace through 2000 and possibly 2001# Balao ushers in inter- ‘Defensively we held them to 21 points for tho game and seven at halftime. You cant ask for much more than that.’ — Larry Schulte Unicorn coach need a strong bench to win games this year. Schulte said he was pleased with what he saw of his entire team. “I played 11 people and I thought all 11 played well,” Schulte said. “I thought we got positive minutes out of everyone.” Schulte also is positive that his team is headed in the right direction. “I really like where we are now,” Schulte said. “I like the way we’re running our offense and we’re playing defense.” The Unicorns will next play San Marcos at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Unicom Gym. The Smithson Valley Rangers lost to Marble Falls 65-47 Tuesday night in Marble Falls. R.J. Strauch led the Rangers with 22 points. rn * A / J i By DENNE H. FREEMAN AP Sports Writer Emmitt Smith says there is always a first time for everything. Being benched with a game on the line like he was Sunday was certainly a first for him since his high school, college and professional days. Smith has a sore right ankle and his performance has been limited. Smith could start in the Thanksgiving Day game against the Washington Redskins despite a gimpy right ankle. But Dallas Cowboys coaches could put Sherman Williams or Herschel Walker into the game if Smith doesn’t produce. “Emmitt doesn’t have the quickness he’s had in the past,” coach Barry Switzer said Tuesday. “We could use both Sherman and Herschel.” Smith gained only 18 yards in 11 carries in the Cowboys’ 20-6 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday. He has a sore ankle, but an MRl test was negative. “lf Emmitt is healthy enough on Thursday he will start,” said running back coach Joe Brodsky. “This man has a lot of pride. He plays hurt all the time without telling anybody. ” Smith was benched in the fourth quarter of the Giants loss in favor of the quicker Williams, who is not as good a blocker and has trouble running the correct pass route. Williams has rushed 34 times for 160 yards this year. His average of 4.7 is exactly a yard better than Smith’s 3.7 on 244 carries for 894 yards. “I’m ready if Emmitt can't be ready,” Williams said. “I hope I can give the team a little spark when I get in there. ” Walker has run four times for 12 yards. However, he is a better receiver out of the backfield and blocks better than Williams. Switzer said both Williams and Walker could be used early against the Redskins in an effort to kick-start an offense that hasn’t scored a touchdown in 24 consecutive possessions over eight quarters. Clearly unhappy at being benched. Smith hasn't spoken to reporters since the Giants game.

Approval came exactly one week after Chicago White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf shattered baseball’s salary structure by signing Albert Belle to a record $55 million, five-year deal. That contract provoked criticism from many baseball executives who felt betrayed. Those sentiments were largely behind the 26-4 vote — three more than the three-fourths -majority required —*that ratified the agree ment. Owners rejected the deal 18-12 on Nov. 6, but acting commissioner Bud Selig decided to call another meeting within hours after Belle’s signing. During a meeting that lasted a little more than two hours, 14 teams changed their votes after an appeal from Selig. The White Sox, Cleveland, Kansas City and Oakland voted against the five-year contract, which is retroactive to 1996 and runs through 2000. Players have the option of extending the agreement through 2001. LUBBOC K, Texas (AP) — Welcome to Aggieland on the plains. And that’s no joke. The Aggies, the eternal targets of collegiate humor, have become everyone’s second-favorite football team around here this week. Why? If Texas A&M upsets Texas on Friday, Texas Tech will represent the Big 12 South in the Dec. 7 conference championship game in St. Louis. “I grew up an Aggie fan, watching (former coach) Jackie Sherrill and his squad,” said Tech comeiback Duane Price, a graduate of A&M C onsolidated High School and a friend of A&M kicker Kyle Bryant. “This is a different perspective this week, because I'll be pulling for them for a different reason.” The scenario is this: If A&M wins, each of tile three teams will be I -1 against the other two, and Tech wires the tiebreaker. lf the Longhorns win, they rule the South outright. Tech coach Spike Dykes doesn't like relying on others to do his bidding, though he admits he won’t exactly be crying in his pineapple juice ifTexas leaves the Aggies marooned at 6-6, sending Tech to the Aloha Bowl. “I told somebody the other day the consolation prize isn’t so bad,” Dykes said. “I’ll take Christmas in Hawaii.” Should Tech make it to St. Louis, they’re probably headed to Arizona for the Copper Bowl. If they lose to Nebraska or Colorado. 1st Place 2nd Place — Tied for 3th Place5th Place 6th Place 7th Place 8th Place 9th Place Last Place “EXPERT” FOOTBALL PICKERS Lait Week: Season Total: ga Debbie Scott 8-7 120-60 Billy Parnell 6-8 117-63 David Winder 8-7 117-63 Becky LaLannc 10-5 116-64 Dong Toney 8-7 114-66 Dong Loveday 5-10 112-68 Karen Reininger 6-9 110-70 Nathan Millett 0-6 108-72 FI Carol Ann Avery 9-6 106-74 Texas A&M at Texas Texas Texas A&M Texas A&M Texas A&M Texas Texas A&M Texas A&M Texas Texas Texas A&M Colorado at nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Colorado Nebraska Nebraska Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Florida at Florida State Florida Florida Florida Florida St. Florida Florida Flonda Florida St. Florida Florida Miami at Syracuse Syracuse Syracuse Syracuse Miami Miami Miami Syracuse Miami Syracuse Miami Georgia at Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Georgia Tech Notre Dame at USO Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame use Notre Dame Notre Dame Notre Dame Mississippi at Mississippi St. Mississippi St. Mississippi St. Mississippi St. Mississippi St. Mississippi Mississippi Mississippi St. Mississippi Mississippi St. Mississippi St Kansas City at Detroit Kansas City Kansas City Kansas City Detroit Kansas City Kansas City Detroit Detroit Kansas City Kansas City Washington at Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Washington Dallas Dallas Houston at N Y.
