SVHS faces unbeaten San Benito on Friday By Gary M. Livingston Sports Writer SAN ANTONIO — Smithson Valley coach Larry Hill jokingly had some words of advice for those wishing to see the Texas A&M -Texas football game this Friday. “Our game is going to be a better game, ’ I Iii! said, “lf that game is so great, why are they playing again next year?” I iii! and his Rangers can afford to joke around, now that they dominated San Antonio Clark’s Cougars 48-20 in a Class 5A-Division ll area playoff. Smithson Valley won its seventh straight game by corralling Clark run ning hack jerroll Wilkerson, who earlier this season became the greatest runner in San Antonio area history. Wilkerson got his yards — 313 of them — to end his career with city records for yardage (7,247) and touchdowns (47). “He’s a heck of a running back and a great guy,” Rangers senior linebacker Joe Pawelek said. “We just hoped to contain him.” Wilkerson scored two times against the Rangers, but SVI IS defenders came up with some big plays in key situations, forcing two interceptions and four fumbles. But it was Clark which couldn’t stop Smithson Valley. The Rangers set season highs for total points and yardage in Saturday’s victory, which sent them into the third round of die playoffs for the seventh time in the last eight seasons. As the players celebrated after the game, with their helmets off and guns-up finger sign up, their coach had sighs of relief. “I've never seen it (Wilkerson^ huge yardage),” I lilt said. “Nor do I want to see it again. I wish him well in the future.’ The win sends the Rangers (10-2) against unbeaten San Benito (11-0) in the regional quarterfinals Friday at the Alai nodome.
