“We just plan to put our best foot forward and continue to do what we have to do,” he added.
After a 14-IO district-opening •loss to Churchill, the Rangers have won two straight, downing Converse Judson and Mac ■in two emotional contests.
“You have to be careful in this district,” Hill said, referring to how 26-5A teams must stay emotionally ready each j week. "This weeks game isn’t iiny more important than the one you played last week.”
Reagan (4-2, 2-1) has never beaten Smithson Valley since its opening in 2000. Still, the Rattlers had plenty of bite in its 26-5A opening win over MacArthur (22-20) and in a losing effort two weeks ago against Madison (21-9).
“They’re another team that’s 2-1 and has played well,” Hill said. “In this district you just hop from one fire and into the next one. But we’re real impressed with their players, their coaching staff and what they’ve done."
Smithson Valley, Reagan and fudson are tied behind Madison, which holds a 11/2 game lead following its 29-13 victory over Lee Thursday night. A Rangers win inches them closer to the Mavericks, who will play at Smithson Valley Oct. 28.'
Tossing out injuries as an excuse, Smithson Valley hasn’t displayed the kind of consistency I fill would like to see. But things being as they are, its a compliment saying they’re still in the thick of the race.
“Last week we made plays at the beginning and hung on to win and the week before we made plays at die end to win,” the coach added. “There’s a lot of ways to win. I ’d just love to have a game where we can put it all together.”SMITHSON VALLEY (5-1) AT SA REAGAN (4-2)

rtiomentum and scored on ijs first possession, driving tjie ball 77 yards. Reesing capped the drive when he took the ball into the end zone on a keeper from two yards out with 3:56 left in the third quarter.
Canyon would fail to Answer that score, and once again Lake Travis was able tp move the ball through the lair and exploited Canyon’s zone defense.
“We are not fast enough JKJ man-up against their people," Davis said. “We "tried a few times and got burned. I don’t know how you defend that unless you got better athletes, but I wouldn’t trade our kids for any of theirs.”
Canyon had problems passing the ball throughout, but twice the Cougars dropped would-be touchdowns.
“I don’t know what happened,” Davis said. “Those were balls we’ve been catching all year long. These are kids, and kids are going to make mistakes. It happens.”
The lone bright spot for the Cougars was the play of Chase Wilke who had his fifth 100-yard game of the season, totaling 111 yards on 23 carries and one touchdown.
“What can you say, we had some opportunities that didn’t pan out,” Davis said. “On the other hand, they took advantage of every one of them they got.”
In the locker room after the game, Davis spoke to the team about regrouping and regaining focus for the final leg of the season.
“We got to learn from our mistakes,” Davis said. “We’ve got three more ball games to play. We can worry about this one and let it fiang over our heads, or we ^an forget about it and go on.”

22 first downs on only 52 plays from scrimmage.
Defensively, New Braunfels allowed the Mustangs (3-4, 0-2) just 161 total yards, including only 49 on the ground in 34 rushing attempts.
Marble Falls was led by fullback Lasara Flores’ 63 yards on 11 carries, but the bulk of that yardage came on one 34-yard run in the third quarter. Hauss hit on just five of his 15 passes for 70 yards (including a 43-yard hookup to Matt Jay on the game's first play) and was intercepted twice. Marble Falls’ lone touchdown came on a 27-yard reverse pass from reserve quarterback Jason Hendrix to Michael Crouse late in the first half that cut the Unicorns’ advantage to seven points going into halftime.
“We had some momentum with our touchdown there at the end of the first half, and we thought we could keep it and get on top of those guys in the third quarter but it didn’t work out that way,” Marble Falls head football coachVOLLEY

“I don’t know if tonight did it or not,” Gombert said. “We’re two ahead of MacArthur but we beat them twice already so we hold the tie-breaker there. When we started the season, our goal was to win IO games in district. We’re two away but we’re not counting anything yet.
