After an 8-2 loss in a practice game with McNeil on Friday, CHS coach Ralph Behrend pointed to the need for better timing on offense. “We’re going to have to find a way to score more runs,” Behrend said. “We snuggled at the plate, and that’s something we have to work on in preparation for Boerne. We need runs, if it means we have to do things like bunt, sacrifice and run the bases better.” Five days remain for this to be done. The District 28-4A runner-up Cougars (15-11) face Boerne (22-4) A 8 p.m. next Friday at Wolff Stadium, home of the San Antonio Missions minor league baseball team. Admission to the bi-district playoff game is $ 4 for adults and $2 for students. McNeil, the District 25-4A co-champion,was ready to give Canyon a playoff glimpse, jumping in front 3-0 on a three-run homer in the first inning. The lead stretched to 6-0 in the second inning before Behrend made pitching changes, replacing Patrick Hinojosa with Brandon Cox, then inserting Jerry Van Noy in the third inning. Bietle Parrish singled and scored Canyon’s first nm in the fourth inning on an RBI double by Brandon Cox. Todd Swim added an RBI single to make it 6-2. Van Noy helped account for two of Canyon’s five hits. Behrend said he plans to start Reagan George at the mound on Friday.

Moca won 329 games as the Mavericks’ coach, 204 more than the franchise’s other four head coaches combined. But when Ross Perot Jr., McDavid and Zaccanelli bought the franchise Wednesday, firing Motte as head coach was one of their first actions.
