BASKETBALL/From 1B DAVID INGRAM/Herald-Zeitung Canyon’s Jerome Davis gets fouled going up for a lay-up by New Braunfels Alfonso Gomez as Mott Hogue (30) looks on during Friday’s game. Junior center Jason Grohman, who scored a team-high 12 points and hauled in eight rebounds, recorded two of his four blocked shots on back-to-back possessions, which led to two transition buckets for the Cougars and a 43-39 Canyon lead. “In the fourth quarter we just put our heads back on. We lost our composure earlier in the game and the crowd got us out of it a little bit,” Grohman said. The overflowing crowd at the NBHS auxiliary 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 crowd,” Grohman said. “All that mattered was what was happening on the court.” There was speculation that the game might get moved to the New Braunfels Middle School gym, which could have seated 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 home-court advantage. If we would’ve played at the middle school, it wouldn’t have seemed like our court,” Hogue said. The Cougars scored seven unanswered points on 5-of-8 shooting from the free throw line in the final two minutes and held on for a 51-45 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 difference,” Rotzler said. “We just felt like we had an advantage inside and he did a good job.” Canyon (21-5 overall, 9-2 in District 25-4A) was coming off a 54-51 win over Bastrop (16-14, 4-7) and a 55-49 loss to Lake Travis (19-10, 7-3). ‘Tve been worried about the way we’ve been playing and building momentum going into the playoffs,” Rotzler said. “Tbnight I just decided to not even mention the playoffs and just let the seniors enjoy their last game against New Braunfels. I think they had fun out there tonight ” Canyon plays league-leader Del Valle (23-6, 9-1) in a battle for first place at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday at Ben Hardy Cougar Den. “No matter what year it is or where we’re at in the standings, it’s always a big win for us against New Braunfels,” Grohman said. “We’re still in the hunt for the district title, which is going to .be tough to do, but we just have to beat Del Valle at our place.” New Braunfels (18-11,3-8) wraps up the regular season against Lake Travis at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday in Austin. Rangers claim second place with 50-25 win From staff reports SAN ANTONIO — In a playoff for second place in District 27-5A, the Smithson Valley girls basketball team defeated Brackenridge Friday night 50-25 at O’Connor High School.

This time its was Kau I Armandariz feeding Conor Woolbert on the right side for a 15-yard 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 19:45 mark with Gribbon holding the ball on the far-left side of the field. Gnbbon 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 3-0 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 one-on-one 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 game’s 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 ourselves.” Belding said. “Tbwards 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 half,” New Braunfels was coming of an embarassing 9-0 loss to Dripping Springs this past Tuesday on the road. Wimberley, which is a 3A school, fell to 0-12 overall and 0-5 in district. New Braunfels (5-7-1, 1-3-1) next plays cross-town rival Canyon at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at home.Time for a Change, CHEVY NEW BRAUNFELS 725 IH 35 SOUTH EXIT 166 NEW BRAUNFELS, TX 78130 (830) 606-3451 Find us on the web at: r I fill IL CHW rhanna ;
