New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 14, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung J Sunday, January 14, 1996 □ 7 A Sports Day Bastrop Lady Bears forage for porridge, come away with win By DAVID DEKUNDER Staff Writer Everybody has heard about the tale of Goldilocks and the three bears. But the Canyon Cougarettes can tell you a tale of the 11 Bastrop Lady Bears who came into Cougar Den on Friday night looking for more than their porridge. Unfortunately, the Canyon Cougarettes could not close the book on this tale. They had to play and relive every minute of it in an 83-39 defeat at the hands of the Lady Bears, who sit atop District 28-4A standings at 3-0, 22-1 overall. “Coming in we knew their forecourt was their strength," Canyon coach Tina Duncan said, referring to Bastrop’s full-court pressure defense and play of guards Kim Mills and Crystal Flowers. “They are a team that does not miss anything and they play a very physical game. Like I told our team, it is good when you can score nearly 40 points against them.” As the tale of the game continued, the Cougarettes (7-15,0-3) learned these Bears were small but very fast, physical and menacing. It would be an understatement to say that Bastrop’s full court press was “unbearable” for the Cougarettes to handle. Every time a Cougarette player dribbled or tried for an outlet pass after a rebound, three Lady Bears would harass her into making a bad pass, turning the ball over or giving the Lady Bears an opportunity to steal the ball and go in for a layup or make a trip to the foul line. Canyon turned the ball over 44 times compared to Bastrop’s 21 turnovers, 16 times in the third quarter. The Lady Bears, who average 24 steals a game, swiped 26 steals. Offensively, Canyon was able to attempt only 36 shots and made only nine field goals. Bastrop coach Rick Pinson said the strategy of his team was to prevent post Elizabeth Weisman from getting the ball by putting tremendous pressure on the Cougarette front court. “We knew if they got their inside game going and got it to her (Weisman), we would be in trouble,” Pinson said. “We put enough pressure on them to prevent that from happening. We have 11 players who can go out on the floor and wear down people very quickly by pressuring and attacking the ball.” The strategy worked as Weisman, Canyon’s leading scorer, was held to eight points. Guard Tanya Castilleja was the only Cougarette in double figures with IO points. Crystal Flowers, who has a 17 point scoring average, scored 21 points for the Bears. Dee Dashay (IOpoints) and Kim Mills (seven points) helped the Bastrop cause. Bastrop was able to get many shot attempts with help of 26 offensive boards. The Lady Bears lead from the very beginning, going on an 18-5 run in the first quarter to go up 21-7. Canyon held on and got within ll at 24-13 in the second quarter.

The Bears (22*1,34)) overwhelmed Canyon 83-29 and stayed undefeated in District 28-4A. The Lady Bears expanded their 15 point halftime lead to 40 points in the fourth quarter as the barrage of steals, drives and five three pointers continued to hurt the Cougars. In the third quarter, the Lady B ears outscored the Cougarettes 29-9 and topped it off b\ scoring 31 points in the final period while limiting Canyon to 12 points. Under the circumstances, Duncan believes her team did its best to stay in the game. “I was pleased that we stayed on the boards,” Duncan said. The Cougarettes were able to snatch 28 defensive rebounds. “Our team did not give up and we were not intimidated by them.” Canyon will try to garner their first district win with a home game against the Lockhart Lions on Tuesday. Tipoff is at 8 p.m. Cougars cruise to 2-1 start From submitted reports The Canyon Cougars rolled to a 2-1 start with a strong showing at the Austin ISD Tournament. Faced with injuries to several starters last Tuesday, the Cougars took on the Lockhart Lions and came back from a slow start. The Lions jumped in front 1-0 but Canyon answered with a goal on a penalty kick by Paul Paniagua. The penalty came when Adrian Armen-darez was taken down in the penalty box. Paniagua put the final touches with a 30-yard shot over the the Lion’s keeper. On Friday, the Cougars squared off against Johnston and battled to a 0-0 score in the first half. Playing without their starting goalie, Canyon was up to the challenge as Armendarez took over in front of the net. In the second half, the Cougar defense picked up the pace, as did the offense. Less than five minutes into the the half. Paniagua nailed a shot from the left side of the goal past the Johnston keeper. The Cougars took more shots on goal before Raul Garcia comer kicked to the head of C.J. Czelusta with under 20 minutes left, making the final score 2-0. Next Canyon faced Bryan Highschool in the quarterfinals at Nelson Field. Bryan took a 1-0 lead at halftime. Eric Rodnguez, Stefan Rohach an Mike Mechler bolstered the Cougars’ defense but couldn’t overcome the first half deficit. Bryan won 2-0. Canyon coach Danny Bueno said the team continues to make marked strides despite the setback of nine senior starters lost to graduation. The players are taking a confident outlook. “We have the chance to surprise a lot of people this year as long as we play together,” said Czelusta, a returning senior midfielder. The Cougars next take on Round Rock McNeil on Tuesday. Colts not just lucky By BARRY WILNER AP Football Writer PITTSBURGH (AP) — Time to get senous. Time to forget about all these miracle and team of destiny descriptions. Time to talk football. Can the Indianapolis Colts really stage their third straight shocker, beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday in the AFC championship game, and get to their first Super Bowl in 25 years? Most people say no. The odds-makers have them as 11-point underdogs. Outside of Indianapolis, they still get little consideration as a legitimate title contender. Still, they have gotten this far not through luck or on a fluke. The Colts are here because they have played solid, balanced ball the last three weeks. “If you feel like nobody, you shouldn't be here," said Lamont Warren, who has been a real somebody in replacing star running back Marshall Faulk, out after knee surgery. “And if you are here, you should perform when called upon. I’m not surprised by this.” “We don’t have all the answers why we’ve hit our stride,” quarterback Jim Harbaugh said. “I think we keep grinding and come back every day and play as a team. And we believe in ourselves.” There hasn’t been much to believe in over the years since the Colts moved from Baltimore — where their only glory occurred — to Indianapolis in 1984. Nor was there a whole lot of faith placed in the Colts when they squeezed into the playoffs this season with a 9-7 record. But after a win over New England in the season finale to clinch a wild-card herth, followed by road victories against the defending AFC champion Chargers. Haley question mark in NFC title game By DAVE GOLDBERG AP Football Writer IRVING, Texas (AP) — The medical report on the two dominant defensive linemen in Sunday’s NFC championship game says that Reggie White is a bit healthier than Charks Haley. Maybe that’s a way to give the Green Bay Packers the edge they’re looking for. The Packers arrived in town Friday night for a meeting with the media by coaches and players from both teams. One of the prevailing topics was the health of the White and Haley. So far, White’s ahead. Coach Mike Holmgren said the Packers’ all-Pro defensive end would be limited to 15 to 20 plays again because of a groin muscle tear, although he played more than that in San Francisco last week. White said he’d play more, and Holmgren said: “Reggie has a way of being persuasive on the sidelines. That’s why I’m trying to set the limit now.” Haley, meanwhile, worked out Friday for the third time since undergoing back surgery five weeks ago. Coach Barry Switzer said he hoped Haley can play on third downs. But Switzer added. “He’s sore. He said, ‘Coach, if I’ve gotta go play, I’ll go play if that’s what I have to do. That’s an indication to me that he may not be ready to play.” Otherwise, both teams are relatively healthy, although the Packers, in their first championship game since 1967, seemed a little less certain about how to face their first formal confrontation with a media mass. Brett Favre gets shaving cream send off By ARM STAPLETON AP Sports Writer GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)—If the Green Bay Packers were nervous about going to Dallas, it didn’t show in their loose locker room. At least there was no quaking by quarterback Brett Favre in his shoes, which were filled with shaving cream. Favre, the NFL’s officially-selected most valuable player and the Packers’ No. I prankster, said lie had wondered when teammates were going to repay him for such shenanigans as dumping buckets of ice water on them. As Favre packed his gear tor Friday’s trip to Dallas, he was asked if the hoopla over the Packers’ best season in 28 years affected him. That’s what affects me,” he said Friday, holding up a loafer. “Shaving cream in the shoes.” Any suspects? “I have about 20,” Favre said as he wiped the lather oui. “I just put my underwear on. I hope I didn't have anything in them,” Favre added “Frank Winters, somebody put something in his jock today. He was on fire at practice. It wasn’t me. It wasn’t me. “They got me,” Favre told running back Edgar Bennett, whose locker is next to his. Favre said he has taken a liking to the rabbit that the Milwaukee Brewers gave the Packers along with 145 rabbits feet for good luck. “Oh. I like the rabbit, yeah,” said Favre, who named the hare “Rainbow.” “I wanted to take him with us, but no one wants to take care of him,” Favre said. “He’ll be watching, I’m sure.” Favre might not want to get too attached to Rainbow because Brewers general manager Sal Bando said that, if the Packers beat Dallas and then win the Super Bowl, he wants the lucky animal back so that he can give it to the Brewers team manager Phil Gamer.

White, in as big a game as he’s had during his distinguished career, talked a lot about racial harmony. “Ha said, ‘Coach, if I’va gotta ga play, ITI go play lf that’s what I haws to do.’ That’s an indication to ma that ha may not ba rsady to play." — Dallas coach Barry Switzer on Charles Haley. 1991 Dodge Shadow ES Convertible 2 Door, P/Windows, P/Locks, Tilt, Cruise, A/Trans, Casseue White 43,000 miles 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 Four Wheel Drive V8, A/Trans., A/C, Laramie SLT, P/Windows, P/Locks, Tilt, Cruise, Cassette Air Bag 17, 600 miles Becker Motor Company 547 S.
