New Braunfels will try to control the tempo of the game, he said, which means the pace should be quick.
“We will try to up the tempo of the game by putting a lot of pressure on defense,” Wilkins said.
The Unicorns may switch to a man-to-man defense against Gregory-Portland, to take advantage of New Braunfels’ team speed.
“We think we’ve got a chance to beat them,” Wilkins said. "If we get the effort we had on Friday, ITI be real confident. Our goal now is to just take these games one at a time.”
The Wildcats bring a 23-6 record into tonight’s game, having waltzed through the District 15-4A schedule with an 11-1 record. New Braunfels, the champions of District 13-4A, is 17-12.

New Braunfels' Damon Millett goes up for a shot during Friday's game
If the New Braunfels Unicorns didn’t know better, they would think they have returned to the late 60s and are making a guest appearance on the “Land of the Giants.”
New Braunfels travels to Kenedy tonight to take on Gregory-Portland at 7:30 in a regional playoff contest.
Compared with New Braunfels, the Wildcats will seem like giants.
And Uke the short-lived series, the Unicorns hope to cancel Gregory-Portland before it runs on forever, or at least to the regional finals on Friday.
New Braunfels Coach Cliff Wilkins said his team will not be able to match up with the Wildcats.
“We are going to have a real problem matching up with them physicaUy. They are big. Much bigger than us,” he said.
But the Unicorns have faced this problem before. I .ast Friday, New Braunfels beat a larger Southwest team by tiring them out.
Tonight, the Unicorns will try more of the same, while also trying to put more pressure on the Wildcats.
“They are even bigger than Southwest was, but they are not nearly as fast,” Wilkins said. “We are going to put more pressure on Gregory-Portland where we could not against Southwest.
“We won’t be able to match up with them, but our quickness will counteract that,” Wilkins said.
The Wildcats are led by 6-9 postman Brian Boney. Although he averages only eight points a game, just his presence opens things up on offense.
“He is huge. He is not fast at all, but he is stocky. He does the labor for the team,” Wilkins said.
Gregory-Portland’s leading scorer is 6-5 junior Don Brannigan, who is averaging 25 points per game.
“He is a tremendous shooter,” Wilkins said. “At one point in the season he hit 40 free throws in a row.Memphis shreds punchless Gunslingers, 20-3
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Gunslingers didn’t know which to be more in awe of — Memphis quarterback Walter Lewis and his backfield mates or the Showboats’ defense.
Lewis passed for three touchdowns and running back Leonard Williams gained 136 yards en route to Memphis' 20-3 victory Monday night in the opening game for both teams in the United States Football League 1965 season
At the same time, the Showboats’ defense held San Antonio without a touchdown for the first time in the
Gunslingers’ two-year history.
“Memphis is to be complimented,” San Antonio Coach Jim Bates said. “They did an excellent job on both sides of the ball. They ran the ball better than anyone we’ve seen.” Williams’ rushing total and the Showboats’ 243 yards and 22 first downs were the most ever racked up by a San Antonio opponent.
Lewis passed 25 yards to wide receiver Greg Moser for a second-period score and connected on a 35-yard scoring play to wide receiver Derrick Crawford in the third period. Lewis’ last scoring pass went to
tight end Gary Shirk for 4 yards with just 35 seconds gone in the final quarter.
The score came four plays after linebacker Lemont Jeffers recovered a fumble by San Antonio quarterback Rick Neuheisel on the Gunslingers’ 15.
It was Lewis' second strong showing in as many years against the Gunslingers. Although he had trouble much of last season, when Memphis ranked 15th among the 18 USFL teams in passing, Lewis shredded the Gunslingers in 1984 for five touchdown passes and 221 yards.
San Antonio averted a shutout when Nick Mike-Mayer kicked a 22-yard field goal in the third quarter.
The Gunslingers never got untracked offensively. Except for the 15-play, 65-yard drive that led to the field goal, San Antonio’s only other threat ended at the Memphis 5 when running back Scott Stamper fumbled.Alamo Stadium fans get religious message
SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The nearly 11,000 people who turned out for the season opener between the San
Antonio Gunslingers and the Memphis Showboats got a dose of religion along with their sports fare.
Painted (rn the playing field at the 50-yard line for the Monday night football game was the scripture notation “John 3:16.”
The Bible reference was the idea of Ruth Manges, wife of Gunslingers owner Clinton Manges.USFL
