   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 25, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 Page 6 — Herald-Zeitung — Friday, March 25,2011  Canyon'*  George  Williamson  «SPORTS  ■ COMING SUNDAY  Check out the 2011 HZ All-Comal boys hoops team  Herald-Zeitung  To have your sports event publicized, contact Chris Hoffman at 625-9144, ext. 223, or by e-mail at  sports@herald-zeitung.com   Nichols’ goal sends Lady Rangers to second round  Rangers’ season ends in 5-1 loss to Billies  By Shaun Springfield  Sports Correspondent  SAN ANTONIO — Nikki Nichols scored what proved to be the game winner at the 15th-minute mark and keepers Emily Essary and Sarah Gardner were dominant in net to lead Smithson Valley to a 1-0 shutout of Fredericksburg at Dub Farris Stadium Thursday night in the Glass 4A bi-district playoffs.  "We had been knocking on the door and we were trying to shoot more from the out  side,” Smithson Valley coach Jason Adkins said. "Nikki got open and took the shot.”  The shot was one of several chances Smithson Valley (16-2-3) created throughout the game but found the back of the net on Nichols’ shot.  "We had a lot of chances,” Adkins said. "We were fortunate to get the goal."  While the offense was able to create chances for themselves, the Lady Rangers defense kept the I>ady Billies from making any progress.  The defense tallied their 10th shutout of the season off the work of keepers Essary and Gardner and a back line consisting of Jonna  Adkins  Bergeson, CoCo Flores, Cristina Folsom and Pauline Fields.  "(The shutout) is huge for our confidence,” Adkins said of his defense. “That gives our defense a lot of confidence. For them to step up and do that in the playoffs is great.”  Near the midway point of the first half, the lady Rangers were awarded a throw-in deep in the Fredericksburg zone and made a strong push toward the net. Sarah Castro was awarded with an assist after she received the throw and moved the ball through the defenders to the waiting Nichols. Nichols shuffled around one defender before firing the shot that bounced off the right post for the lone goal.  Fredericksburg made a push in the waning minutes of the game, but the Smithson Valley  defense stifled the attack and took home the win.  The victory wasn’t pretty but the Lady Rangers are finally into the second round.  "We've lost in the first round the last two years,” Adkins said. "We finally broke that streak.”  For the players, nerves were on high for most of the game.  “We're all nervous and anxious," Nichols said. "We did not play very good. It was an ugly win.”  The opening round victory is step one for a Smithson Valley team that has lofty goals.  "We all say we are going to state and we are  See SVHS, Page 7  NEW ORLEANS — Alex Vyus scored 19 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as Florida beat BYU 83-74 in overtime T hursday night, chasing Jimmer Fredette and the Cougars out of the NCAA tournament.  While Fredette was the star attraction, scoring 32 points on ll-for-29 shooting in the final game of his college career, Florida countered with balance.  Kenny Boynton added 17 points while Erving Walker and Chandler Parsons both scored 16. Boynton and Parsons each hit 3-pointers in overtime as Florida outscored BYU 15-6.  Fredette made just 3 of 15 from 3-point range and had to work for his points against Florida’s physical defense. By the end of the game, he had a bandage on his chin from a blow in die second half, but the baskets kept coming until he was held scoreless in overtime.  Florida (32-5) eliminated BYU (32-5) and reached its first NCAA tournament regional final since 2007.  BYU finished die season with the most wins in school history and made the round of 16 for the first time since 1981, when another famous Cougars guard, Danny Ainge, was the star.  CONNECTICUT 74, SAN DIEGO ST. 67: Kemba Walker scored 22 of his 36 points in another dynamic second-half performance, and Connecticut moved to the brink of its fourth trip to the Final Four with a 74-67 victory over San Diego State in the West regional semifinals Thursday night.  Freshman Jeremy Lamb added 24 points and hit a clutch 3-pointer with 1:43 left for the third-seeded Huskies (29-9), who needed five wins in five days to capture the Big East tournament before advancing to an NCAA regional final for the 10th time.  DJ. Gay scored 16 points for the second-seeded Aztecs (34-3), who couldn’t quite catch up to Walker during a scintillating second-half stretch run.  Walker scored 12 consecutive points for UConn in that late due! with Gay, whose 3-pointer cut the Huskies’ lead to 65-64 with 2:53 left. Lamb replied with his 3 before an emphatic last-minute dunk.  The West Coast vibe suits the Huskies, who also came out of this region during their runs to the 1999 and 2004 national tides.  ► COLLEGE HOOPS  Balanced  Florida  beats  Fredette,  BYU in OT  By David Brandt  AP Sports Writer  Unicorns’ i soccer playoff j schedule unfolds  From staff reports  The New Braunfels boys and girls soccer teams found out their playoff destiny on Thursday.

CLASS 4A BI-DISTRICT SOCCER PLAYOFFS  Nowitzki leads Mavs to 11th straight 50-win season  DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitz-ki had 30 points and 11 rebounds, lason Terry added 18 points and the Mavericks rallied in the fourth quarter for a 104-96 victory over the Minnes otaTim-berwolves on Thursday night, giving Dallas 50 wins for the 11th straight season.  Shawn Marion added 17 points and Peja Stojakovic had 16 to help the Mavericks win for the third time in four games.  Anthony Randolph had a career-high 31 points with 11 rebounds for the Timber-wolves, who’ve lost their last five games and are without injured All-Star forward Kevin Love.

Randolph, acquired from the Knicks in a three-team trade on Feb. 22, had a 23-point first half, 17 in the second quarter.  Dallas was in front by as many as eight in the third quarter, but the Timberwolves came back to grab a 95-93 lead with 3:17 to play on Wayne Ellington’s 22-footer.  Tyson Chandler’s three-point play with 2:38 left put Dallas back in front, 96-95.  Jonny Flynn hit a layup with 1:17 remaining to pull Minnesota to 98-96, but Terry’s 3-pointer with 55.6 seconds left gave Dallas some breathing room at 101-96.  Marion stole Flynn’s pass, and Nowitzki hit two free throws with 43.5 seconds to play for a 103-96 advantage to ice the victory.  LAURA McKENZIE/Herald-Zeitung  Canyon’s Adrian Ayala (8) fights for the ball with the Boerne defender during Thursday's Class 4A bidistrict playoff game. Ayala scored the winning goal to lead the Cougars past the Greyhounds.  Cougars survive in 4A playoff opener  Ayala’s late header proves to be game winner for CHS  By Chris Hoffman  The Herald-Zeitung  The motto for a No. 1 seed in any playoff is simple: SURVIVE.  What should have been a cake walk for Canyon against Boeme turned into a slugfest, with Cinderella almost walking away with the glass slipper.  The Cougars had to rally back twice against the Greyhounds before Adrian Ayala’s header at the 71 -minute mark to lead Canyon to a 3-2 comeback win in the Class 4A bi-dis  tricts at Cougar Stadium.  “We survived,” Canyon coach Rob Rush said. "That’s exactly what we did. Give Boeme a ton of credit. They outplayed us and we didn’t show up to play in the  Ru#h  first half. We were able to claw our way back and hung on for the win.” With the win, the Cougars will now play the winner of the San Antonio  Jefferson/Kennedy game in next week’s area playoffs.  Canyon (11-7-2) was down 2-1 for most of the second half before Zach Williams scored off a corner kick at the 63-minute mark to tie the game at 2-2.  A sense of urgency seemed to spread to the Cougars, who did not want to fall to a Boerne team that limped into the playoffs after losing 5 of its last 6 games in 54-4A.  “You never want your season to end like this,”  Williams said. "I think we just dug ourselves a hole. We’ve got a lot do work on to keep this playoff run going.”  Canyon, which has been known for its speed all season, watched Boeme race past them for nearly every loose ball and won every 50/50 ball in the first half.  Boeme freshman Carter Lopez scored 17 minutes into the game off a shot from the left side to the top right of the net to give the Greyhounds a 1-0 lead.  See CHS, Page 7
