Mavs down Rockets
CONTINUED FROM Page 7A
Canyon winning with guile
Different guys have gotten it done the past few weeks.
Against Tivy, Chris Lynch, Jordan Paweleic, Bernie Gutierrez, Derek Wall s and Jai min Shah combined on five kickoffs for a 43.8-yard average. Gutierrez’s 85-yarder went for a score. J.D. Kunz’s 47-yard pass to Kyle Peace won it with 4:21 to play.
Against LBJ, Shah had two TD pass catches from Kunz. Special teams came through early, but the defense clamped down late, allowing a final LBJ scoring drive in garbage time.
“In the first half I thought we were in real trouble,” Billiot said. “Their quarterback (Terrance Perkins) was real good — not too good of a passer, but he was good at scrambling. The second half came around and we took care of stuff. We’re more of a second-half team.
“like when we’re down, we just get it into our heads that we’re the better team. Most of the starters on the varsity are seniors, so when it comes down to it, we don’t want to go home. That’s when we really, really step it up.”
The stats say Canyon will be more evenly matched against its next opponent, Edcouch-Elsa (12-0). The Cougars will play the Yellow Jackets at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Corpus Christi’s Buccaneer Stadium.
The third round is usually the burying ground for teams from the Rio Grande Valley. Davis says that’s far from what he and his players are believing.
“I don’t care where they’re from. If they’re 12-0, they’re pretty gcxxi,” Davis said. “T hey beat Gregory-Portland and Beeville, and those are two pretty good programs. So they’ve had some quality wins."
Added Springfield: “They’re probably one of the best coached teams we’ve played in a long time. 'They’re not great at what they do but they have good technique. They don’t

Canyon is now sold on not taking opponents lightly. T he opening jitters are gone, and after two challenges, the Cougars have absorbed the knowledge and advanced,

With a victory, Canyon can reach the state quarterfinals for the fifth time in school history. This team, like those previous four, has IO wins or more. Springfield, for one, wants this team to join the others.
“This is a great time of year. You’re not supposed to lie playing in November and December. Every team we’re playing now is a winner — if they weren’t, they wouldn't be here,” he said. “I lalf the guys on the team have never been in the playoffs because we didn’t go last season. It’s just great to be able to experience this and go out with a bang."
