During the 60th minute in the second half, Canyon’s Juan Sanchez fined up for a free kick just outside the East Central goalie’s box. Sanchez’ low ground ball kick split four East Central defenders and scooted past goalkeeper Joseph Panzarella.
‘I just took the ball and shot it. I was thinking I was going to score before I shot it, and then the ball just went in,” Sanchez said.
Sanchez’ goal gave the Cougars a shot in the arm as they obviously started playing more aggressively and with more energy. But, Cougars could not penetrate East Central’s defense again.
“We played really bad today. We need to win more 50-50 balls and just play smarter,” Sanchez said.
In the closing minutes, Canyon had three opportunities to score but did not capitalize.
With 4:30 remaining in the game, Ryan Thomason made a header pass to Sanchez in the front of the goal, but Sanchez’ shot on goal from five yards away sailed high.
With a little more than three minutes to play in the game, Bryan Jonas rocketed a shot from more than 30 yards out, but Panzarella made a nice diving save to his left.
Less than a minute later, Dylan Matelske crossed a nice pass from right to left and Panzarella was caught out of position when he dived for the ball and missed. Andrew Ayala was open for the shot; but the pass rolled just out of his reach uncontested.
“The second half I thought we dominated possession. We definitely had more shots, but we missed three opportunities at the end where we should’ve scored,” Rush said. “Juan (Sanchez) probably should’ve scored on his
second chance at a goal, (Bryan) Jonas had a good opportunity and Dylan Matelske made a good cross that Andrew Ayala should’ve gotten to.”
The Cougars (7-5 overall, 1-1 in District 25-4A), who defeated Wimberley this past Friday 11-0, played Tuesday’s game without three starters (two for cards, one of an injury), including the team’s leading scorer Zeb Vick-nair. Rush said he expects to get Vicknair and Kevin Kelly, who has missed the past three games with a sprained ankle, back on Friday. The Cougars play at 6:45 p.m. Friday in Fredericksburg.
‘I don’t know if we’re where we need to be yet. I think we’re still a few steps away from there,” Rush said. “We’ve got IO more district games, and hopefully we don’t hurt ourselves in the process.”Game Time

New Braunfels junior forward Sarah Knudson (25) tries to keep a Del Valle player from driving to th basket during Tuesday night’s game.
The win avenged a two-point loss at Del Valle back on Jan. 3.
“We should have won that game in Del Valle,” Schulte said. “This was a much different game than that one. We were able to manufacture points inside and keep them out of the paint.”
New Braunfels next plays at 7:45 p.m. on Friday at Lockhart.
Del Valle’s loss also helped Canyon’s playoff hopes.
The Cougarettes, who were
off Tuesday night, can still finish the district season tied for third place if they win their remaining two games (Lake Travis at home Friday and at Bastrop Feb. 4) and Del Valle loses its remaining two games.
A tie for third would force a third-place playoff game because the two teams split during the regular season.
Canyon defeated Del Valle during the second round of district play 79-54 and lost to Del Valle 56-52 back on Dec. 13 in Del Valle.
