   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 16, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 Wednesday, February 16, 2011 — Herald-Zeitung — Page 7  SPORTS  ;  Herald-Zeitung  .    To    have    your    sports    event  publicized, contact Chris Hoffman at 625-9144, ext 223, or by e mail New Braunfels'  at s P oft s@herald-zeitung com  Morgan Hill  SAN ANTONIO — Chamaya TUmer did it all in the Canyon Cougarettes’ Tuesday night in the Class 4A bi-district playoffs. The sophomore amassed a team-high 23 points, made crucial steals and came up big on defense and on the boards — but it wasn’t enough.  The Cougarettes lost 66-58 to Medina Valley at the Durban Center in San Antonio.  “It’s always difficult to  Lady Panthers 66 lose,” Turner Cougarettes 58  sajd  •  We wil ,  just have to move on from it and put it behind us.” Canyon (18-13) gave a spirited performance on the court for most of the game, but dug too many holes to win.  "At times, we played pretty good,” Canyon coach Terry Tennell said. “Then, other times, we had lapses and those cost us.”  The Cougarettes trailed several times, but got back into the game with a key defensive stop or a crucial basket.  From the tip-off, Medina Valley’s was evident as the Lady Panthers’ shooters moved the ball and found open shots or drove the lane.  With the Lady Panthers leading 16-8, Tennell called the first of several time-outs to get his team back on track.  “I just tried to refocus them,” he said. “I told them to stay positive.”  The Cougarettes came out on fire and quickly made up the eight points to tie the game. The time-outs were Canyon’s best way of generating offense; each time-out seemed to re-energize the team.  Medina Valley led 20-17 after the first and regained a narrow 34-31 lead after another Cougarette rally.  The second half saw both teams shoot the ball well. The back-and-forth scoring did not help Canyon, though, as the Cougarettes were always a shot behind.  “I told them making shots  Up-tempo Churchill eliminates NBHS  Lady Chargers 46 Lady Unicorns 29  By Justin Coons  Sports correspondent  SAN ANTONIO — New Braunfels’ girls basketball team struggled to turn possessions into points in Tuesday’s 46-29 playoff loss to San Antonio Churchill.  "We’ve had a hard time scoring all season," Lady Unicorns coach Lance Hughey said. “We had a  few times when we could’ve gotten closer to make a few baskets, but it just didn’t work for us tonight.”  Churchill opened the bi-district playoff game with a 14-3 run, and the Lady Chargers never relinquished the lead. New Braunfels (23-11) pulled within seven points in the second quarter, but as the game rolled on, the Chargers  made rebounds and worked their up-tempo offense to success at San Antonio l^e’s Varsity Gymnasium.  “We didn’t rebound very well offensively, and when we did go for the offensive rebound, they got a lot of transition baskets," said Hughey, whose Unicorns were outscored 18-2 on a flurry Of Churchill plays to start the  fourth quarter. “It’s kind of a double-edged sword; you go in there and crash, and when you don’t get it, they beat you at the other end.”  Julie Dlrienzo had 12 points to lead the Unicorns. Rebecca Knud-son added seven points, and Heather Hewitt and Marissa  See NBHS, Page 8  ► SCOREBOARD  PREP ROUNDUP  Girls Basketball  Churchill 46, New Braunfels 29 Smithson Valley 60, Kerrville Tivy 25 NB Christian 63, Temple Christian 45 Boys Basketball Judson 57, New Braunfels 45 Churchill 68, Canyon 67 Boys Soccer Canyon 1, Wimberly 0 Girls Soccer Wimberly 2, Canyon 1 Girls Softball Canyon 4, Stony Pomt 2 Canyon Lake 12, Largo Vista 2 Smithson Valley 6, New Braunfels 1  NBA STANDINGS  SATURDAY LOTTO  Jackpot: $23 million 24-32-35-48-52-53 (2/12) WEDNESDAY LOTTO Jackpot: $22 million 2-19-/1-31-35-41 (2/0) TEXAS POWERBALL (2/12) 11-32-36-48-52 PB: 19 POWER PLAY: 4  PICK T  Day (2/15)    9-0-9  Night (2/15)    5-5-7  DAILY 4 Day (2/15)    0-7-2-0  Night (2/15)    3-6-8-7  TEXASTWO-STEP (2/14)  I-9-14-23 BB: 13 CASH FIVE  II-13-15-27-28 (2/15) MEGA MIUJONS (2/15)  17-18-24 35-39 MB: 18 MEGAPLIER: 4  New Braunfels Christian girls notch 1st playoff W  From staff reports  The New Braunfels Christian Academy girls basketball team won the first playoff game in school history Hiesday night, beating visiting Temple Central Christian 63-45.  The Lady Cats were led by Sarah Adams, who had 16 points. Kendall Warren added 14 and Catlin McKinney poured in 12.  “This game was all about determi-  nation and really wanting to win,” NBCA coach Leon Sneed said. “It feels really good to get our first playoff win. I think it was more of a relief that we won our first playoff game, for me and for the team. Now, we can just go out and play basketball without all the pressure.”  A smothering full-court press over-welmed Central Christian, as NBCA forced countless turnovers that they converted into easy points.  The Lady Cats (26-3) advance to the second round of the playoffs.  BOYS BASKETBALL JUDSON 57,  NEW BRAUNFELS 45  SAN ANTONIO — New Braunfels High School jumped out to a half-time lead Tuesday night against Judson, but a sluggish third quarter doomed the Unicorns to a 57-45 loss in boys basketball action.  The Unicorns led 28-23 at intermission, but managed only six points in the third period. The Rockets, meanwhile, enjoyed their best scoring quarter of the night, pouring in 19 points to take a 42-34 lead into the final stanza.

CLASS 4A BI-DISTRICT HOOPS PLAYOFFS  LAURA McKENZIE/Herald-Zeitung  Smithson Valley's Lauren Jay (42) splitsTivy defenders to shoot during the second quarterTuesday.  LADY RANGERS ROMP  Smithson Valley dominates Tivy to open playoffs  Lady Rangers 60 Lady Antlers 25  By Chris Hoffman  The Herald-Zeitung  HELOTES — If you ask Smithson Valley’s Ali Salmon if she called her circus shot during the third quarter Tuesday night, she’ll say she did.  "I called it,” Salmon joked. “I knew it was going in all the way.”  The left-handed bank shot from the top of the key while Salmon was being fouled is the kind of basket one calls during a game of H-O-R-S-E — not during the Texas high school playoffs.  The shot was indicative of the dominance Smithson Valley showed during a 60-25 rout over Kerrville Tivy in the Class  4A bi-district playoffs at San Antonio O’Connor High School.  Coach Angie Hermesmeyer said the game plan was to come out fast and play like the Lady Rangers have all season — and treat every team like they are the best team.  See SVHS, Page 8
