The line is one of the reasons why Canyon is where it is, and numbers bear that out. Canyon, which averaged 257.6 yards per game during its 8-2 run in 2004, averaged 365.2 in its first IO games this season. Why? Senior leadership and experience, the coach said. “They’ve done a tremendous job all year,” Davis said. “It’s fun having a group of seniors with a little experience and the intelligence to make adjustments during the middle of ball games. It helps us as coaches to make the changes we need to make. They’ve done a great job.” Ralph switched over from left guard to succeed Darren Billiot at center when BilliotHOOPS CONTINUED FROM Page 9ABoth teams to play in Seguin tourney in the finals.” Canyon opens the Matador Tournament at IO a.m. Friday against another Rotzler. Kenny’s brother, Glenn, used to coach at Corpus Christi Flour Bluff and now is in his first season with the Lockhart Lions. Hays Consolidated 71, New Braunfels 61 After spending the first two weeks on the road, the Unicorns finally had their home opener against the Rebels (3-2). They led 34-33 at halftime before Hays took over in the second half. “It was probably our most complete game so far,” Unicorns coach Chris Dial said. “We just came up short at the end.” Shane Fisher scored 23 points, Tony Valadez had 17, 9:30 a.m. (grade 5); 10:30 a.m. (grade 6); and grades 7-8 at 11:30 a.m. A late registration fee of $75 will be accepted at the door.

Morrison succeeded Davidson, who switched to the right side, and Ward moved from tackle to guard. The coach said even though all seven are seniors, there was a lot they had to pick up on in a short time. They did because their varsity experienced shortened the learning curve. “The thing about this year’s group is that they understand the game better,” Davis added. Said Davidson: “It makes it easier when you have experience because we’ve all worked with each other before.” The linemen said all of the opposing lines they’ve faced this season were good. Some, like LaVernia’s and Uvalde’s, weren’t as big. Neither was New Braunfels’, they said. All of them, they conceded, made up for their lack of size with a lot of heart. It was much the same last Chris Albright added seven and Nick Miner had six for the Unicorns (1-6), who trailed 19-13 after the first period. “We scored eight points in the first minute of the second quarter,” Dial said, adding Albright scored five of those off the bench. “Nick Miner played well against their top scorer, Johnny Bell, who came in averaging over 20 points but wound up with 14.” Fisher and Valadez, Dial said, controlled the pace, with Fisher scoring 13 of his total in tile fourth frame. Dial said the Unicorns need to improve on free-throw shooting (they were 9 of 16 in the game), but are getting closer to coming together. They will open the Schertz Clemens tournament against the host Buffaloes at 8 p.m. Thursday. GIRLS New Braunfels 51, San Marcos 50 SAN MARCOS — The Unicorns got some key shots down the stretch by Ashley Bevil, who went 8 of 8 from the free-throw CLYSC Soccer Tournament The Canyon Lake Youth Soccer Club (CLYSC) will host the Dam 3 vs. 3 soccer tournament for youth and adult teams on Dec. 17-18 at the Hidden Valley Sports Park, located on the South Access Road across from the Canyon Lake dam.

But after the Yellowjackets’ opening scoring drive, Canyon wasn’t impressed. The Cougars got down to it. “We just made up our minds that we were going to dominate them,” Ward said. And the Cougars did, as a ground game that had slept in opening playoff wins over Kerrville Tivy and Austin LBJ came to life. Running back Chase Wilke picked up 188 yards on 23 carries as the Cougars won, 38-10. Blocking for Wilke and quarterback J.D. Kunz has been the linemen’s charge this season. “They make it easy on us when we run the ball,” said Kunz, who has 424 yards and nine touchdowns rushing added to his 1,028 yards and IO TDs passing. “They create the big holes, and all we have to do is run through them.” Wilke, who has rushed for 1,822 yards and 25 scores, always credits his line for his individual numbers. But he line, to notch the win over the Class 5A Lady Rattlers (3-6). “It’s our best win of the year, for sure,” New Braunfels head coach Lance Hughey said after his team evened its season record at 4-4. “San Marcos was really athletic. They took over, 48-42, with three minutes left and we outscored them 9-3 over last three minutes.” Kellie Thomas had 17 points, Zephani Benitez added IO, Bianca Flarper had nine and Bevil scored eight for New Braunfels. “Ashley basically won the game for us. But our kids really played hard. It’s the first time we’ve come back from a deficit that big, and it was important for our program.” New Braunfels will open the Canyon Cougarette Classic against Manor at 12:45 p.m. TTiursday. Del Valle 59, Canyon 31 DEL VALLE — The Cigarettes played as well as they could against the Lady Cards’ press, which overwhelmed them on the road.

We saw that and went ‘Wow — he won’t be stopped.’ ” Canyon won that game, 35-28, in the same fashion as its other wins. The players stay calm in tight situations, and no one ever blames each other for missed blocks. “That only happens in movies,” Ewing said. The players don’t see this week’s test as being any better or worse for the Cougars. Calallen (12-1) has the tradition Canyon would love to have. Of course, as Davidson says, “When you get to the quarterfinals, everybody’s going to be good.” The Cougars match well with the Wildcats, which are a well-coached bunch. “Individually we’ve seen a Brittani Hackfeld, who just moved up from the junior varsity, led Canyon with nine points. Cheryl Nixon scored five, Kendra Clayton had four and Kristen Mueller and Bo Warm scored three each for the Cougarettes (2-5). Joan Friesen-hahn and Katie Korioth had two each and Robin Prosha had one for Canyon. The Cougarettes trailed 18-7 after the first period and 29-8 at halftime. “They jumped on us early, and we just weren’t able to recover,” Canyon coach Terry Tennell said. “I saw some good things, but we have other things we need to work on." The Cougarettes will play SA Jefferson in the first round of the Cougarette Classic at 2:30 p.m. Thursday. Schertz Clemens 52, Smithson Valley 29 SMITHSON VALLEY — Injuries have gotten to the Rangers for the second straight season under coach Brady Wyatt, and they weren’t any help in a 23-point loss. TSU Pitching Clinic Texas State pitching coach John Matey will host the 12th annual Holiday Pitching Clinic, Saturday, Dec. 17 at Sullivan Field on the University of the Incarnate Word campus in San Antonio. The time for ages 10-13 will be 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; the high school clinic will run from 1-3:30 p.m. Fees are required. Call Matey at 210-682-3120 or Pete Magre at 210-355-6757. lot better, but as a team they’re one of the best we’ve seen," Steven Davis said. Ogle has paid attention to what coach Davis has encouraged the team to do this week — focus on Calallen’s team instead of being wowed by all that tradition. If the next step comes, then fine. “We’re very good at looking' at what’s in front of us and not looking too far down the road,” he said. “We’ve been told to take it one week at a time, and Calallen is just the team to focus on. They’re going to be pretty tough.” As seasons go, this one has been pretty special for the Cougars, who are playing like there isn’t a tomorrow. “A lot of us are going to be through after the next few weeks and we’re never going to play football again,” Davidson said. “This is the way to make the most of it, and there’s no better way to do it than by winning state. “We just keep pushing forward to that goal every week.” Mallory Meyers scored 11 points, Brittany Arredondo scored six, Jessica Martin had four and Page Piatnik had three for Smithson Valley (2-5), which lost Mallory Craig and Lad Bird and has dropped its last five games. Smithson Valley had 38 turnovers against the Lady Buffs, who led from start to finish. The Rangers will play Justin Northwest at 4:15 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the Cougarette Classic. Marion 56, Jourdanton 34 The Lady Bulldogs got 14 points and eight boards from Shannon Froboese and IO points each from MacKenzie Langemeier, Ari Albrecht, Erica Sosa and Megan Delgado to improve to 5-1 on the season. Sosa had eight boards and five assists and four steals, Delgado added four assists and four steals and Albrecht finished with five steals for Marion, which begins its tournament against Devine Thursday at 1:30 p.m. © Join us for a fun, exciting, memorable week of games, relays, crafts, nature hikes, zip lines, archery, giant banana splits and much more!

HOME OWNERSTAKE A HIT AGAIN $$$Air Conditioning and Heating Requirements This is to help with understanding the New 2006 Federal Minimum Energy Efficiency standard for Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps. 13 SEER (Season Energy Efficiency Ratio) is the standard used to measure the efficiency of central air conditioners and heat pumps. Products with higher SEER ratings are more energy efficient. Manufactures will use about 30% more material in their products to meet the new federal regulation making the new products larger, heavier and more costly to manufacture and distribute. Homebuilder's should immediately discuss 13 SEER pricing with an air conditioning contractor to ensure that builders are using accurate new construction costing for future projects. Effective January 2006 the cost of air conditioning and heating replacements will increase due to the change in State Codes and Federal Laws The U.S. and Canadian federal regulations are designed to dramatically reduce national energy consumption.Duct Insulation Requirements Persons interested in IRC/IECC Code Requirements for Insulated Ducts in Texas. To meet energy standards, R-8 insulation must be used when installing 13 SEER equipment. R-6 insulation may be used with 14 SEER or higher equipment. This law goes in effect on January 23, 2006. The R-value is basically the thickness of the insulation. The thicker insulation is required with the lower SEER ratings to meet the energy efficiency standards. You now are in a “catch 22”, pay higher prices for higher SEER rating or with lower SEER ratings, you will still pay higher prices for required increase R-value in the duct system. Not meeting Energy Code requirements could lead to conforming to codes when homes are sold in the future. The above is brought to your attention by: A & E AIC & Htg TACLBO12980C Blue Star A/C & Htg.
