New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 29, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Region IV football playoffs Bidistrict New Braunfels (13) 10-0 Area Here are the matchups for the 1985 Class 4A Region IV football playoffs Uvalde (14) 11-0 New Braunfels Regional (Gregory-Portland (15) 7-2-1 Rio Grande City (16)7-2-1 bregory-Portland Southwest (14) 11-0 Southwest Canyon (13) 7-3 Mercedes (16) 9-1 Calallen Ca la lien (15) 8-2 Semifinals Homebody Lions shoot down Jets PONTIAC, Mich (AP) — There's no place like home for the holiday, or any other day, as far as the Detroit Lions are concerned. The Lions remained unbeaten in the Silver-dome this year by knocking off the New York Jets 31-20 in Detroit’s traditional National Football League Thanksgiving Day game The Lions are a dismal 1-6 on the road but 6-0 at home, a phenomenon that still puzzles Coach Darryl Rogers. “I just don’t know why.” he said ‘‘I want to do the same thing on the road We still have one more chance next week” against New England. The Lions used a furious pass rush. which included seven sacks of Jet quarterback Ken O’Brien, and a good day by Detroit quarterback Erie Hippie to keep New York at bay. Hippie threw four touchdown passes, three to veteran wide receiver Leonard Thompson. A 19-yard Eddie Murray field goal early in the first quarter made it 3-0. and the Lions never relinquished the lead. New York Coach Joe Walton found no silver linings in the performance by the Jets, who fell to 9-4 “We didn’t play well — the offense, the defense, the special teams,” he said. He found no solace, either, in the play of running back Johnny Hector, who ran 23 times for 114 yards in place of injured starter Freeman McNeil “The whole team didn’t play well, and he’s part of the team.” Walton said Defensive end William Gay had three of Detroit's seven sacks, including a shot that forced O'Brien to fumble at the New York 37 on the Jets' first possession of the game “It s a good effort.” Gay said “I’m very happy with my performance, but I'm more happy with the team's performance ” Detroit turned a Jet fumble into a 36-yard drive culminating in Murray’s field goal, the only scoring in the first quarter Detroit went up by IO early in the second quarter on Hippie’s 25-yard pass to Thompson The Jets responded by driving to the Lions' 12 on a 48-yard pass play from O'Brien to Wesley Walker, but two passes were broken up and the Jets settled for a 29-yard Fat Leahy field goal Hippie teamed up with wide receiver Mark Nichols on a 38-yard touchdown pass play for a 17-3 Detroit halftime lead, and hit Thompson again 9:29 into the third on an eight-yard touchdown throw' to make it 24-3 The Jets staged a mild rally when O'Brien connected on a 35-yard touchdown pass to Al Toon and Leahy kicked his second field goal to make it 24-13. “I thought we had plenty of time left, over seven minutes.” Walton said But the Lions put the game away when Thompson snared a Hippie pass at the Jets' 30 and ran into the end zone to complete a 44 yard play.
