Alfonso Gomez as Mott Hogue 30 looks on during Fridays game Junior center Jason Grohman who scored a teamhigh 12 points and hauled in eight rebounds recorded two of his four blocked shots on backtoback possessions which led to two transition buckets fat the Cougars arid A 4389 Canyon lead In the fourth quarter we just put our heads back on We lost our composure ear lier in the game and the crowd got us out of it a little Grohman said The overflowing crowd at the NBHS aux iliary gym which has the estimated seating capacity of 250 people was by far the largest crowd ever at that gym We did our best to play through it and block out the Grohman said All that mattered was what was happening on the There was speculation that the game might get moved to the New Braunfels Middle School gym which could have seat ed more people but the New Braunfels seniors wanted to play their last home game in the gym they played in all year We wanted the homecourt advantage If we wouldve played at the middle school it wouldnt have seemed like our Hogue said The Cougars scored seven unanswered points on 5of8 shooting from the free throw line in the final two minutes and held on a 6146 win Jason Grohman had to sit a bunch in the first half because he got in foul trouble We brought him back in and started going to him more in the second half and that was the Rotzler said We just felt like we had an advantage inside and he did a good Canyon 215 overall 92 in District 26 4A was coming off a 5451 win over Bas trop 1614 47 and a 5549 loss to Lake Travis Tve been worried about the way weve

Conor Woolbert on the right side for a 15yard shot that bounced off a Wimberley defender and deflected into the upper left hand corner of the net Then came the most spectacular shot of the night at the mark with Gribbon holding the ball on the farleft side of the field Gribbon dumped the ball off to Sean Murray who took one step past his defender and then fired a bullet from 25 yards out into the upper right hand corner of the net for a 30 lead at the half The second half of the game was less exciting with only one goal being scored by Sanchez with 39 seconds left Sanchez found himself in a oneonone situation at midfield and decided to force the issue by taking the ball alone down the field towards the goal As he neared the goal Sanchez juked his defender to the ground and then swept right past the exposed keeper for the games final score We worked the ball in the first half and we did what we talked about we executed our game plan and passed the ball well among Behling said Towards the end of the first half I thought we started to get greedy and force passes into pressure when we had better opportunities to drop the ball and pass it around So one of the things we talked about at halftime was to stay with our gameplan and work the ball around But give Wimberley credit they came out and pressured more than in the first New Braunfels was coming of an embarassing 90 loss
