Cougarettes rally past Tivy;
Hie Canyon Cougarettes hit the road Thursday night, and came back co-leaders in the 13-4A volleyball race.
After getting drummed by Kerrville Tivy in the first game 15-5, the Cougarettes rallied to win the last two games, IM, 15-12, and pull out the match.
The win moves Canyon into a first-place tie with Lockhart at 3-1.
"The first game, we weren't woving or hitting at all,” Cougarette coach Donna Boehle said. "After that game, we talked about getting our feet moving and getting together.”
It worked. Canyon jumped to a 5-0 lead and cruised in the second game, and sprinted to a seemingly insurmountable 12-5 lead in game 3. Rim Fifer rallied the Antlers behind her serve, and Kerrville closed the gap to 13-12 before the Cougars could slam* the door.
"We played hard,” Boehle said of games 2 and 3. "Katherine Morgan picked up some of the most miraculous balls I’ve ever seen. She made some lifesaving digs.”
Morgan, who saw little action early in the season, alternated with Nancy Tieken Thursday, Boehle said.
Boehle also platooned Carol Friedel and Kim Rittimann like a baseball manager. Friedel, still nursing a sore back, came in when the Cougars needed some setting, while Rittimann was used to provide offense when needed, she explained.
"Both of them did the job they needed to do,” she said.
Stephanie Burch and Leona Soechting led the Cougarettes with five kills apiece.Rangerettes roll
Smithson Valley continued its waltz through 26-3A Thursday with a 15-4, 15-4 rout of Bandera in Bandera. The win leaves the Rangerettes with a 5-0 district record.
Smithson Valley, which has given up only 25 points in sweeping its last three matches, has now defeated every team in its district.
The Rangerettes could face their toughest challenge of the season Tuesday at Southside. Smithson Valley won a hard-fought, three-game match with the Cardinals in the district opener-Doing the bump
A good pass is the key to any offense, and Rangerette standout Julie Coppet goes to her knees to insure that this one finds the setter.

Second week critical in 13~4A
The second week of the District 13-4A season may turn out to be the most crucial of the entire season, if last week's results are any indication.
Last week’s losers — Canyon and Lockhart — are up against the wall on the road, while Gonzales travels to Kerrville to see if the Tivy Antlers are for real.
Canyon makes its first road trip of the season, traveling to Fredericksburg, while Lockhart faces New Braunfels. Hays, 0-1, is open.
In Kerrville, the undefeated Apaches face the 4-1 Antlers, who have already won four times as many games as they did a year ago.
Gonzales has been paced all season by a punishing ground attack led by fullback Clarence Owens and tailback Johnny Hunt, while the Apaches’ defense has allowed only lf points all season.
The Apaches struggled to defeat Harlingen Marine Military in their last non-district game, but had posted impressive victories the prior two weeks.
Tivy responded to a 94) deficit with 28 straight points to knock off previously unbeaten Lockhart The Antlers’ Glenn Kibbett gained 132
yards on 19 carries and Pat Hall added IS on 17 carries as the Antiars ran up M yards of offense.
The Antlers' defense allowed the liens only two yards rushing after an 83-yard touchdown run by Lockahrt punter Kevin Schnauts.
In Fredericksburg, the 6-1 Canyon Cougars need a victory to stay in the district race. Hie same is true for Lockhart, which is the homecoming game guest at Unicorn Stadium.
Next week, New Braunfels is at Gonzales, Hays is at Canyon and Fredericksburg is at Lockhart. Tivy isopen.

Boerne, Randolph head 26-3A action
What may turn out to be the showdown for the District 38-3A championship will be played tonight, the opening (tight of district play, at Randolph.

At Randolph, the Ro-Hawks' tough defense will be tested by Greyhound running back Lance Schaidoer and quarterback Trent Taylor. Schaidoer had 135 yards last week as the Greyhounds blitzed Marble Falls 27-6.
Boerne'* defense hasn’t been to shabby, either, allowing 41 points — 21 in one game, a 21-18 loss to state-ranked Hondo — in five games.
Randolph was slow getting started this season, falling to Hays 28-0 on opening night and then Holy Cross 9-2 the second week of the season. But since then, the Ro-Hawks have upset South San West and blasted Antonian.
At Cole, a pair of up-and-down teams meet in whet looks to be an even match. Hie Cougars art 3-2 after winning 404 (Poteet) and SM (Antialien) and iosiite 27-0 (Canyon) and 35-7 (Poth). Southside is 3-1, with victories of 32-14 (Marion), 27-13 (Holy Crews) and 34-6 (Antonian) and a 48-7 lots to Natalia.
The Cougars are led by tailbeck Bruce Galliard, while the Cardinals have been led by fullback George Ruiz, who broke a school record for moat yards in a game two weeks ago against Antonian.

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Oiler quarterback Gifford Nielsen keeps repeating over and over — if he does bis job nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wrong.
Nielsen sailed into preseason as the starting quarterback and lost the job to Archie Manning.
Nielsen inherited the job again when Manning was traded to Minnesota and will start Sunday’s National Football League game against Denver in the Astrodome.
But once again, there is a shadow looming in the background and on this occasion it is the rumor that the Oilers are trying to strike a deal for disgruntled New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms.
"lf I go out and do my job, I’ve got nothing to worry about," said Nielsen, a five-year veteran. "If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my six years here is that you can’t dwell on things you have no control over.
"I can’t go behind dosed doors and tell them to do this or that. I’m paid to make a contribution on the field and nowhere else.”
Nielsen led the Oilers to the brink of
their first victory in 13 games last week but two costly interceptions and a couple of lite defensive breakdowns will send the Oilers into the noon kickoff with an 0-5 record.
Nielsen has completed 56 percent of his passes since regaining his starting job. He’s been sacked eight times for 58 yards in losses and bas thrown five interceptions.
Oiler Coach Ed Biles says there are no irons in the fire to trade for Simms. "We're committed to looking at the people we’ve got,” he said.
The Broncos will try to break a three-game losing streak by removing 85 million rookie quarterback John EU way from the starting lineup and replacing him with veteran Steve DeBerg, who has finished four of the games Elway started.
Denver Coach Dan Reeves said he was displeased with the overall team
Unless Elway enters the game as a substitute, he wont get to compete against his former teammate at Stanford, tight end Chris Dressel.
"Ha's a great receiver,” Elway said. "He made a lot of things easier for me. I was lucky to have him for a receiver.”
