New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 4, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas JOHN Cougars derail Del Valle Canyon came up with its most important victory of the young season Tuesday night with a 62-60 decision over De!

Del Valle pulled down just IO offensive rebounds. Curtis Johnson sank two free throws in the closing seconds to seal the victory. Johnson, who scored 16 points in the game, was one of four Cougars scoring in double figures. Todd Banks led all scorers with 19 points while David Hays scored 15 and Ben Garcia added 12. Cedric Whitley paced Del Valley with 18 points. Hays also snared 16 rebounds and had five blocked shots.

Williams, fed up with what he saw as abusive treatment by the Padres front office, reportedly was ready to quit after club President Ballard Smith and General Manager Jack McKeon fired third base coach Ozzie Virgil without consulting the manager. Earlier, Smith had refused Williams’ request for a contract extension Virgil, a close friend of Williams’, was fired three weeks ago but Williams didn’t learn about the dismissal until last Friday Virgil was quoted in news accounts as say ing that his firing was a deliberate attempt by Padres management to undermine Williams and force him to quit. Williams’ departure seemed a foregone conclusion after it was reported Monday that he planned to accept a management offer to buy out the final year of his contract, worth an estimated $250,000. But Kroc said she would block any attempt to force Williams to leave ”It would be a great mistake to let him go, pay him off or to make life so miserable for him that he would walk away,” Kroc said. “If that is a fact, it won’t work ” As for the reported agreement among Smith, McKeon and Williams on the contract buy-out, Kroc said “That will never happen MCENROE deayl clark herald zeitung Canyon's David Hays grabs a rebound during Tuesday's game with Del Valle Rangers rip Poteet, 70-50 Second-half burst keys win By TOM LABINSKI Staff writer Smithson Valley outscored Poteet 22-10 in the third quarter to help take a 70-50 victory over the Aggies Tuesday night for the Rangers’ fourth win without a loss. The difference between halves for Smithson Valley was as distinct as night and day, said Ranger Coach Roger Kraft “We had a very average first half, but a very. very good second half We played with a lot more agressiveness in the second half and that was the difference,” he said Leading 27-25 at the half. Smithson Valley opened the third quarter by scoring the first eight points Al King hit a close range jumper and fed Rolando Trevino with two inside passes leading to baskets, and Ray Reyes hit his baseline jumper from 15 feet away to make the score 35-25. The Aggies scored four straight to cut the lead to six. but the Rangers outscored Poteet 12-4 for the rest of the quarter, with King and Reyes hitting two more field goals and Trevino and Mike Irvine also hitting baskets “The big thing we did differently in the third quarter was to get people under the basket for offensive rebounds We showed some definite improvement in that department, something we havent had yet.” Kraft said Smithson Valley went on to outscore Poteet 21-15 in the fourth quarter, with most of its points coming from the free throw line The Rangers hit 10-of-12 free throws in the quarter, including Taylor Heyd-man’s seven-of-eight performance "I was real pleased with our free throw shooting We made 16 of 20, and that is pretty good I can’t complain.’’ Kraft said Trevino and King each scored 18 points to lead Smithson Valley while Reyes added ll points Jesse Guajar Statistics POTEET (50) Lem we 3 4 8 10 Goins 2 3 A 7, G jnierdo 7 24 16, Guerra 3 O O 6.
