New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 28, 2005, New Braunfels, Texas Page 6A — Herald-Zeitung — Friday, October 28, 2005 Canyon wary of Mustangs By Rick Breland Staff Writer After making it through its toughest three-game stretch of the season, Canyon gets a much-needed break in the form of a Marble Falls team that lately can not seem to catch a break. The Mustangs (3-5, 0-3) started a promising 3-2, but have lost three consecutive games in district play by a combined 130-26 and come into this game licking some recent wounds. The first of the three losses, a 41-6 drubbing by Dripping Springs, may be the most telling. Last week Canyon was able to rip the Tigers defense for 478 yards in its 38-7 win on the road in Dripping Springs. To make matters worse, two weeks ago the Tigers lost one of their best defenders for the season when linebacker Thor Woemer suffered a broken leg in practice prior to the Mustangs’ 51-7 loss at New Braunfels. With all of that said, the Cougars will need to be sure that they don’t overlook the Mustangs, who are desperate to get a win in district play. A win over the Cougars would prove that the Mustangs’ start to the season was not a fluke, and that they deserve some respect from the rest of District 27-4A. “Well, there’s no such thing as a bye-week,” Canyon coach Les Davis said. “You have to take everybody seriously. From what I’ve seen of them, they ’re going to show up and play hard. They’ve done that every week, and we better be prepared to play.” Davis said preparing for the Mustangs wasn’t easy. “Offensively, they run plays out of every formation known to man,” Davis said. “We have probably had to prepare more for them than we have for any team all year long.” In terms of match ups, the Mustangs do pose some threats. Offensively, their use of multiple formations has befuddled several area defenses. Against Austin IYavis, the Mustangs scored at will in a 51-7 victory. “I don’t care who you’re playing, that’s an impressive score,” Davis said. “It’s hard to score 51 against just air. We definitely have to respect what they do offensively and be ready to play our best.” In that win, Marble Falls quarterback Joseph Hauss ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in just the first half. “He’s a very good player," Davis said. “He does a great job of executing their offense and getting the ball to the right MARBLE FALLS (3^) AT CANYON (7-1) 7:30 pm Cougar Stadium Radio: none Tickets: $6 adults: $3 students at gate Last year: Canyon 35.

Marble Falls' defense is giving up an average of 331.6 yards per game, while the offense has averaged 241.0 yards per contest. Canyon: The Cougars must be careful not to overtook the Mustangs, who have been district 27-4A whipping boys as of late Wilke has piled up 1,219 yards and 16 touchdowns this season and is averaging 176 yards rushing per game Kunz has passed tor 581 yards and rushed tor 307 yards. Canyon is averaging 347.1 yards offense, white surrendering 289.9 yards per game man in passing situations.’’ Running back Lazaro Flores also got into the act, scoring once and propelling the Marble Falls offense to 272 yards on the ground. The Mustangs’ best player, Michael Crouse, is a do-it-all threat. His duties include wide receiver, defensive back and kicker. Titus far this season, he has made plays on offense and defense. On film, Davis said Crouse has been the real standout of the defensive unit. “He’s a good one,” Davis said. “He kind of does everything for them. I leek, watching film of them it was like every time you looked to see who was making the play, it was No. 4. We’re definitely going to have to watch out for him.” While Crouse is the clear leader of the Mustangs’ defense, their linebacking unit is outstanding despite the loss of Woemer, and remains one of the better units in the area. “All of those guys are very active,” Davis said. “They play close to the line of scrimmage and can really get after you.” A win tonight combined with a New Braunfels win puts both teams in the playoffs. It can be expected that when the Cougars face the Mustangs tonight, no one will be taking this game lightly. “You have to take every game seriously,” Davis said. “I expect them to play us very hard and it to be a tough ball game.” AfThe HOUSE... 265 W.

REGULAR SEASON ENDS UNICORNS CONTINUED FROM Page 5A Players expected back from injuries against the Unicorns. “We don’t know what they’re going to do,” the coach said. “They haven’t done die same thing in any one game.” injuries racked New Braunfels last week, when six starters were gone from the win over By Will Wright Sports Editor SMITHSON VALLEY — It’s the same old song with the Rangers, as tonight will be their biggest football game of the season. Both 7-1 overall, Smithson Valley and San Antonio Madison will play for the District 26-5A football title at 7:30 p.m. at Ranger Stadium. Madison, led by former New Braunfels coach Jim Streety, has swept through its five district games, while the Rangers’ ledger is blemished only by a loss to Churchill in the first week of district play. “Obviously, when you get to the end of the year there aren’t a lot of tomorrows,” Smithson Valley coach Larry Hill said. “There’s no question that this is the biggest game of the year for us.” Madison, led by quarterback Chris Caflisch, running back Tony Green and D’Andre Guy, is coming off a big win against Converse Judson, knocking the Rockets out of the playoffs while guaranteeing itself a playoff berth. Smithson Valley needs to win one more game — at home tonight or next week at SA Roosevelt — to get into the playoffs. The Rangers would rather that happen sooner than later, and they will have to do it — again — without some key players. “Some are back, some aren’t,” I {ill said of die injury situation that has plagued his team all season. While defensive tackle Ryan Moczygemba returned Burnet. Caniford believes three of the six will return this week, perhaps more. Running backs Jeremy Erben (ankle) and Daniel Cardenas (foot), tight end Spencer Jergins (back), and nose guard Sammy Gonzales (insect bite) are day-to-day. Lineman Travis Wilson (concussion) is doubtful, but linebacker Frank Villanueva (allergies) practiced with the team this week. • ' New Braunfels has staged a turnaround in the last Five SA MADISON (7-1) AT SMITHSON VALLEY (7-1) 7:30 pm, Ranger Stadkim Radio: KNBTFM 92.1 Tickets: $7 at gate Last year Smithson Valey 42.

Others are out and more, like linebacker Jarrod Burns, are playing hurt (thumb surgery). Still, the Rangers have managed to stay ahead of the game, winning their last four games by 14, 7, 3 and 31 points (against last-place Lee). In tonight’s game, the weeks, going 3-1 during that span and totally transforming into a playoff-worthy team. The Unicorns could lose tonight and still get into the postseason, though they will have to beat their archrival Cougars for a fourth straight year. Rangers will be up against a bigger line and playmakers in Madison’s Big Three. “They have great players and play well in every phase of tile game,” Hill said. “They have such great athletes that there’s no weakness to exploit. T hey have the ability to score from way out, and they’ve found ways to win in the kicking game." Hill said Smithson Valley must offset the Mavericks' size on the lines with speed. The Rangers also must contain Green, who has totaled 1,086 all-purpose yards and Caflisch, who has passed for 582 yards and run for 705 more. “While their tailback and quarterback have notoriety, they have a lot of other players who play well,” Hill added. “They have multiple playmakers, so there’s not really one of them you have to be able to stop. They’re quite a bit bigger than us, so it will be a matter of the defensive line using quickness to carry us, because we don’t match up well there at all.” The Rangers haven’t been winning by large scores, but have won by playing smart ball. They have only had a handled of turnovers in their past four games, and most of them have occurred in garbage time. In spite of the lineup changes, the Rangers have maintained their resolve, I UH added. “ The kids have had a good week of practice, and I know they wiU give their best effort," the coach said. “They sure want to win this game.” New Braunfels doesn’t want latter or the former. The Unicorns want the playoffs. Tonight. “After all that work for the last six months, it comes down to this week for us to make that goal of the playoffs a reality," Caniford said.
