Smithson Valley’s Erie leke (12) tries to pass around Antonian defender Erie Roberson during Saturday’s game at SVHS. The Rangers won 70-61.
“At halftime we just told ourselves to step it up and make smart passes. We just needed to start executing our plays, and we did,” Johnson said.
After an Antonian timeout, Johnson nailed a three-pointer, Erie Icke scored in transition after a steal and Brian Tullman buried another three-pointer off an assist from Little. Icke tallied 13 points and nine rebounds in the game.
“I told them at halftime, ‘We’re dying from the perimeter,’” Miller said. “In the second half we just shot the ball a lot better. Our guys have to realize we have an inside threat with (Josh) Gregory, and we need to use him to make things better on the perimeter.”
Gregory grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds and scored seven points, including a break-away dunk with less than 20 seconds left in the game.
The Rangers hit just one of their first 15 three-point attempts, but
made four of their last six. They shot 41 percent from the floor (22-of-54). Antonian also shot 41 percent (24-of-59) from the floor in the game, but just 30 percent (8-of-27) in the second and third quarters.
Smithson Valley takes on former district rival Boerne at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at home before starting district play against San Antonio Highlands at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Alamo Convocation Center. After Highlands, the Rangers face Har-landale, Brackenridge and East Central.
“I need to work on our rotation a little bit between now and district, and make sure we have the right people on the floor,” Miller said. ‘We’re still evaluating people, and five of these guys are still brand new to me. The real season starts on Friday. I think Highlands, Southwest and East Central are going to be the teams to beat in our district."
Pennington, Jets rout Manning, Colts 41-0
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets insisted they were ready for the next step, winning an NFL playoff game. They turned it into a huge leap past the befuddled Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.
The Jets emphatically showed they belong with a 41-0 rout of the Colts. Chad Pennington threw for three touchdowns,
LaMont Jordan ran for two and the defense recorded its first postseason shutout ever.
New York (10-7) began the season 1-4, but won seven of its last nine to storm to the AFC East title on the final day of the season. The surge continued against the wild-card Colts (10-7), who never were in the game as the Jets recorded their biggest victory
margin in the playoffs.
On the Jets’ fifth offensive play, Pennington’s screen pass floated into Richie Anderson’s hands and he rambled down the left side for a 56-yard score.
The Peyton Manning-to-Mar-vin Harrison connection got the Colts moving, but Mike Vander-jagt missed a 41-yard field goal.
John Hall made one from the
same spot early in the second quarter for a 10-0 lead.
Troy Walters fumbled the kickoff and Ray Mickens pounced on it at the Colts 39. Five runs and a pass play later, Jordan swept left from the I for a 17-point lead.
Pennington later found Santana Moss alone in the right corner of the end zone for a 24-0 halftime lead.
NB girls basketball team loses first district game
From staff reports
DELVALLE — The New Braunfels girls basketball team (14-6 overall, 3-1 in District 25-4A) lost its first district game of the season to Del Valle, 39-37, late Friday night.
“We had many missed opportunites, but I thought we played well enough on defense to win,” NB head coach Larry' Schulte said. Anytime you hold a team to 39 points you should win. We just didn’t hit shots around the basket and more importantly we didn’t rebound.”
Brynna Monk led the Unicorns with 12 points and Audrey Fischer added eight points. Mollie Brawner and Erica Wendell each had six points.
The Unicorns play Lockhart at 7:45 p.m. Tuesday at home.
►Marion HS gills
The Marion girls basketball team improved to 4-0 in district play with a 29-26 victory over Poteet late Friday night.
Jessica Rutledge led the Lady Bulldogs with eight points, Megan Munly had six rebounds, Jenny Miller swiped five steals and Christina Rodriguez had four assists.
“We shot poorly, but played excellent defense to win," Marion head coach Ron Glazener said. “Poteet had a very good game plan against us and we were fortunate to win."
Marion (11-7, 4-0) next plays Somerset at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in Somerset

foot on it,” Thornton said. “I thought we worked really well as a team a made a lot of nice passes."
In the second half, the ball spent a total of 3 minutes and 32 seconds on NB’s side of the field and the Lady Knights were unable to get off a shot.
Midway through the second half, Thronton’s corner kick from the left side rollo I by a group of McCallum de enders in front of the goal and right to freshman midfielder Alyssa Para to re, who knocked in the second goal of the game.
“I aim for Rat (Speck) most of the time on comers, and on
the last couple of corners I was aiming for Tracey (Whitley), but it was a good goal," Thornton said.
The Unicorns took 25 shots on goal in the game, including 14 in the first half.
New Braunfels (1-0), which lost a total of ll players to graduation and other sports, plays Austin Anderson at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at home.
“I was worried at first coming in because we lost a lot of good seniors,” Thornton said. “But the freshmen and sophomores who came in really picked it up. They read the game really well.”

made a couple more adjustments to try and get some more offense up front. We still pounded the goal, we just couldn’t finish.”
In a shootout it helps to have a first team all-district goalkeeper. New Braunfels senior Ben Campos rejected all five San Marcos shots and the Unicorns prevailed 1-0. After the first three Unicorns were denied in tile shootout, New Braunfels freshman Jacob < iullegus scored the only goal rn the shootout.
“Weiv excited about some of the oilier kids and how they’re stepping up for us,” Belding said. “As a coach you’re looking f‘>*’ five guys who can finish Ila' bali on a keeper. We haven’t worked (shootouts) much because our district doesn't have that. I usually try in liave one of my best kids as tile finisher, but we didn’t
even get to see him today. Carlos Sanchez is one of my best finishers, but we didn’t get to see him because Ben Campos did such a great job of keeping them from scoring anything in the shootout. We’re blessed to have Ben in that keeper spot.”
Belding said NB looks really strong in goal this season with Campos and sophomore backup Chris Gerhardt.
“Ben has a pretty good player right behind him who is begging for playing time and is really good too. But, when you have an all district keeper, it makes it tough on the backup guy,” Behling said. “I think he (Gerhardt) understands his position behind Ben, but if anything were to happen to Ben, we really wouldn’t miss a beat, Chris is a big body and moves fairly well for a big kid.”
