New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - February 6, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Southside boats Smithson Valley, 58*56, Page 8A Hepald-ZfitMRf Wednesday, February 6,1985 7ACougars top Lions,gain tie in 13-4Arace LOCKHART — Canyon climbed back into a tie for the lead in the District 13-4A race by defeating Lockhart 49-48 Tuesday night. Todd Banks led the Cougars by scoring 24 points in spite of sitting out the second quarter with three fouls. The Lions fell to 0-7 in district games. “Lockhart played extremely well,” said Canyon Coach David Taylor. “If they continue to play like that, they’ll beat somebody. We could easily have been beaten.” The Cougars trailed most of the game but caught the Lions midway through the final quarter. The lead see-sawed until Canyon trailed by one point with 26 seconds remaining. “We set up a play for Todd in the middle with David Hays breaking behind him,” Taylor said. “The pass in was too high and the ball skipped off of Todd’s hands. Fortunately, David caught the ball and took it in with an easy layup,” he said. Lockhart lost the ball on its next possession when itStatistics District 13-4A Canyon boys 49.

Fredericksburg 55 New Braunfels 51; Kerrville Tivy 71, Hays 59 passed the ball back across the midcourt stripe. “They were forced to foul us after that and Todd came through in the clutch by hitting his free throws,” Taylor said. Banks hit four straight free throws in the last minute to insure the Cougar win. Lockhart hit a basket at the buzzer to cut the Canyon lead to one point. After grabbing the early lead, Canyon fell behind when Banks picked up his third foul with two minutes remaining in the first quarter. “When we Todd sat down, we had real problems,” Taylor said. “But David Hays scored three straight baskets to keep the score close at halftime.” The Cougars trailed 28-23 at the half. By the end of the third quarter, the Lockhart lead had been trimmed to four points at 36-32. “We just didn’t shoot the ball well at all,” Taylor said. “I had only four points from my starting guards.” Danny Hernandez had four points while Ronnie Rit-timann was held scoreless. Although he did not score, Taylor said Rittimann had a good overall game, leading the team in rebounds and adding four assists. “He showed real good leadership too,” Taylor said. “They were pressing us. and Ronnie handled it real well.” Canyon’s record now stands at 6-1 in district play. The Cougars are tied with New Braunfels for the district lead. Billies shock NB at buzzer By TOM LABINSKI Staff writer New Braunfels left the door open Just long enough for Fredericksburg’s Tim Kaman to snake his way through the Unicorn defense and put up a lunging one-handed shot towards the basket. The ball danced above the rim, then fell through the net as the final buzzer sounded, sealing a 55-54 loss for New Braunfels. It was the first District 13-4A loss for the Unicorns, who fall to 6-1. By winning the game, the Billies kept themselves in the playoff picture with a 4-3 record. New Braunfels led most of the game, but failed on several opportunities to put the game away. “We just could not put that clincher in in the fourth quarter,” said Unicorn Coach Cliff Wilkins. "We played well enough to win, we just missed too many free throws in the fourth quarter.” Tilo Schmidt, who paced New Braunfels with 18 points, missed two free throws with 1:25 to play which would have given the Unicorns a three-point lead. Instead, Randy Glover made two free throws for the Billies, giving them a 51-50 lead. It was Fredericksburg’s first lead of the quarter. Victor Sierra regained the lead for New Braunfels by making two more free throws. The Billies missed a field goal, and fifteen seconds later, Sierra hit another pair of free throws, giving the Unicorns a 54-51 lead with 31 seconds to play. “I thought we had them at that point,” Wilkins said. “But you’ve got to hand it to Fredericksburg. Those guys just didn’t quit.” Kaman, who led all scorers with 19 points, drove half the court with the ball for a layup, cutting the margin to 54-53 with 19 seconds left. I^eon Sneed was fouled with 16 seconds remaining, but missed on the front end of a one-and-one. Schmidt grabbed the rebound for New Braunfels, and with IO seconds to go, Sneed was again fouled, this time intentionally, giving him two shots. Both attempts missed the mark, DERYL CLARK/HERALO ZEITUNG New Braunfels' Victor Sierra sails up for a layup during Tuesday's game giving Kaman a chance to drive the ball through a New Braunfels defense geared to stop him. “We knew he was going to take the shot, no doubt about it He is just a great clutch player,” Wilkins said. “They were facing extinction and I guess just wanted it more than we did,” he said. The loss puts New Braunfels in a tie with Canyon for first place in the district. “We’ve got to rebound from this loss and put it behind us,” Wilkins said. “We are still in first place. It is going to be a little tougher road now, but we are still on course.” Apart from the opening minutes of the game, when New Braunfels fell behind 5-2, the first half belonged to the Unicorns. I>ed by a three-point play by Sierra, New Braunfels rattled off nine straight points to take an 11-5 lead. Fredericksburg rallied, but then Schmidt opened the second quarter by scoring on an offensive rebound. Sierra quickly added two layups. His first layup came after he stole the ball downcourt, the second after a long pass from Barry Baker following his steal. “We used a three-quarters press in the second quarter, and that was pretty effective,” Wilkins said. “We got a couple of steals off of it and Victor was there to convert the layups.” The Billies hit three baskets to trim the lead 19-17 with 4:22 left in the half, but then Claude Porterie sank two free throws and David Cadded got the hot hand, knocking in two baseline jumpers and fielding a long pass from Schmidt for an easy bucket and a 27-17 lead. The Billies came back in the third quarter, outscoring New Braunfels 18-12. Sophomore Jason Hopkins led Fredericksburg with six points in the quarter. Schmidt’s pass through a crowded lane led to an easy basket at the buzzer by Ikels, giving the Unicorns a 39-37 lead going into the fourth quarter.Statistics NEW BRAUNFELS IMI Tilo Schmidt 7 4 8 18.

Sherry Wood added 14 points for Canyon It was both Soeehting’s and Wood's high game in district play "We started out kind of slow again, but we gained some confidence in ourselves and looked real good,” Scharf said The Cougarettes played for their second .straight game without Nancy Tieken, who is nursing a bruised knee. "I think the girls realized they didn’t have Nancy in there and just worked a little harder,” Scharf said. She said Tieken may be able to play in Canyon’s final game of the season, when the Cougarettes host Fredericksburg on Friday. Statistics Canyon girls 49 Lockhart 35 • Si.*', 'ii!
