Nancy Timken added five kills for the Cougarettes, while Shiela Soechting had five aces and served ll points. For New Braunfels, Heather Woods led the team with four kills and Linda Schwanz and Jana Chafin both had three aces. “Some of our girls played stronger than they have for the last few weeks, and some of the others struggled,” New Braunfels Coach Claudia Perry said. “We had to have a united effort for us to beat a team of Canyon’s caliber. Canyon has an outstanding team.” The Cougarettes started both games like they were late for an appointment, taking a 7-0 advantages both times. Soechting served five points during Canyon’s spurt in the first game. New Braunfels rallied to make it 8-5 after the teams struggled with their serving, but then Soechting came up again and serv ed five more points to make it 13-5. Four of those points were aces, as the senior spread the ball all over the court New Braunfels made it 13-7 on a kill by Roxane Hob, and an ace by Chafin, but Canyon came back with a kill by Tieken to move to game point.

Kim Krieg led Canyon’s quick start in the second game, serving five points and four straight aces. The teams battled back and forth, and New Braunfels crept back into the game at 9-6 on an ace by Hob. Canyon stretched it to 11-6, but the Unicorns came back to within three on a pair of aces by Chafin and a Cougarette mistake. After a Canyon time out, the Cougarettes edged closer on an ace by Soechting and then back-to-back liners by Tara Cappleman. “We missed a lot of serves, but we NB wins tennis tourney New Braunfels won its own team tennis tournament Saturday at the NBILS courts.

The Cougars struggled to get going, as Smith had to convert a fourth-and-eight with a hard-fought 12-yard gain to the 21. Smith moved the Cougars to the 6 with a nine-yard gain and a face mask penalty, and after a seven-yard loss, Campbell took an inside reverse and slipped 13 yards for a touchdown. Marc Heymann’s kick slid off to the right, but Canyon retained the momentum. Canyon stopped New Braunfels after the kickoff, took over at its 39, and drove 61 yards to pull w ithin 13 at 27-14. A 23-yard, third-and-12 completion from Smith to fullback Scott Wagner was the key play to the drive. Smith scored from the 2 on the third play of the fourth quarter, and he hit Rodriguez in the numbers for the two-point conversion. But on the kickoff, disaster struck. Kicker Ken D’Alfonso had the ball slide off the side of his foot and into Millett’s hands at the 16. With the "hands team” — the backs and receivers — on the field looking for the Cougars to try an onside kick. the Unicorns didn’t throw a block for Millett. They didn’t need to. Canyon overpursued the play, and 86 yards later Millett had killed Canyon's momentum with a touchdown. New Braunfels will need more plays like Millett’s the rest of the way, with potential all-stater Sierra on the sidelines. “I think this bunch will respond,” Streety said. “Something like this just means we’ve got to make something positive happen. We’ll have to have some other guys come in and get the job done.” The got the job done Friday night. And had a little fun doing it.

With 2:12 to play, Bandera turned the ball over on downs at the Ranger 36. Two plays later, Irvine fumbled after scrambling, giving the Bulldogs the ball at the Ranger 44 On the next play, linebacker Bruce l>etbetter intercepted Sides’ pass ut the Smithson Valley 35 with 1:52 to go. The Rangers worked the ball to the Bulldog 44, but Irvine’s fourth down pass fell incomplete. Bandera tried to score in the closing seconds, but Mike Wilson recovered Sides’ fumble for Smithson Valley at the Bulldog 26. setting up the field goal attempt on the last play. A delay of game penalty against the Rangers pushed the bail back to the 31 before Gentry tried the Rangers’ first field goal attempt of the season. “It was a good kick by Chris — he didn’t miss it by too much and it was a long ways out,” Coach Irvine said. Smithson Valley stunted more on defense, and Irvine said that may have caught the Bulldogs off guard. “We are back to playing like we did in the first three games of the season. Hopefully we are back in the groove,” he said. “We played the defending champions and a two-touchdown favorite, and we held our own. I’m very proud of the way we hung in there tonight,” Irvine said. Smithson Valley is now 0-2-1 in Thank You Coach Slawter For the TERRIFIC job you’ve done and the SUPPORT and ENCOURAGEMENT^ you’ve given the Kids! CHS Cross Country Track ParentsSV captures championship By TOM LABINSKI Staff writer SAN ANTONIO - Uke they did in the first round of district play, the Smithson Valley Rangerettes swept through the District 27-3A tournament and came home from Paul Taylor Field House as the champions. Smithson Valley did not play their best games of the season, but they played more than well enough to down both Boerne and Floresville to capture the district title. “I’m very happy to be where we are and I know the girls are happy. They’ve worked long and hard for this and they deserve it,” said Rangerette Coach Louise Davidson. After eliminating Boerne in a semifinal match 15-4, 15-9, Smithson Valley held off a tough Floresville team in the final, 15-12,15-9. “We played sort of a slow pace, just good enough to get by. We were just not as crisp as we normally are,” Davidson said. “We had a lot of good performances and a lot of excellent plays, but we’ll have to be sharper to make it through the playoffs,” she said. Tiffany Beene led the Rangerettes against Floresville with 12 assists, four kills and three service aces. Shalynn McCoy added five kills and Susan Davis four for the Rangerettes. Michelle Hennigar came off the bench and delivered five aces to help Smithson Valley clinch the match. Floresville took an 8-5 lead in the first game, but tile Rangerettes narrowed the lead to 9-8 with kills by Davis and Laurie Hughes and an ace by Beene. The Tigers stormed back for a 12-9 lead, but Smithson Valley scored the next six points to win the game. Hughes and Merrie Fox had aces in the string and McCoy had three kills. Beene recorded the 15th point with a kill. After Floresville staked a 5-0 lead in the second game, the Rangerettes ran a string of ll straight points to take command of the game. Hennigar weaved her aces around kills by McCoy, Beene and Roxanne Wehe for nn 11-5 lead. The Tigers got as close as 11-9 before the Rangerettes tallied four straight points to win the match and district honors.

In the semifinal match, Smithson Valley took control early, building a 5-0 lead, then an 8-2 lead. After Boerne trimmed the lead to 8-4, the Rangerettes erupted for seven unanswered points to win the game. McCoy registered three aces in the streak while Hughes added two kills. Ten of Smithson Valley’s points in the second game came on service aces, including six in a row. Fox and Beene led the team with three each in the game, with McCoy, Hughes, Davis and Hennigar serving one each. “I thought we served pretty well, except that we did miss six serves. What really hurt us was our passing. We wem making our setters run too far for the Dali," Davidson said. Smithson Valley will play the second place team in District 28-3A in a bidistrict playoff game in two weeks. The District 28-3A tournament is on Nov. 4-5. Bidistrict games begin on Nov. 7-8. Smithson Valley will spend the break until the playoffs with a few scrimmage games as well as in practice. “We are going to work on some things, like our passing. I think a few practice games will help us get our intensity up a little bit and it will keep us from getting rusty,” Davidson said. district play while the Bulldogs are 0-1-2 Statistics Scots by quart*'* Band*'* Smithton Vallay Si Ormy summary None I earn statistics First downs by pats by 'un by penalty 0 0 0 0-0 0 0 0 0 0 Banda'S Smithton Vallay IO    12 .............I    3 7    8 . . ,. . . 2    1 Rushes yards Pasting yards Return yards Passes ....
