New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 29, 1987, New Braunfels, Texas Sports Page 10 Herald-Ze/fung New Braunfels. Texas Thursday October ?9 I9t Unicorns hot on Samuel Clemens' heels NB can take lead with win over Buffaloes By TIM WAITS Staff Writer The shoe is on the other foot this year. I*jst year at this time the Unicorns were riding high with a 7-0 record and were eyeing their second straight District 13-4A crown. That was until the Samuel Clemens Buffaloes came to town. On Halloween night of 1986, the Unicorns committed six turnovers and were defeated by the Buffaloes 24-14. Clemens, which had had a previous loss, and New Braunfels shared the district title with 7-1 records, but the Buffaloes entered the playoffs as the first-place team. This time the Unicorns can gain revenge on the Buffaloes on tile night before Halloween. But they may have to open up their bag of tricks early. Coach Jim Streety and the Unicorns see the Buffaloes as a similar team threat as Boerne, only better. But the Unicorns want to get some big plays on offense, probably through the air. “We hope to be able to do that.” said Streety of .striking quickly. "In a lot of ways they are similar to Boerne. But (the Buffaloes! linebackers really dominate the game.” Tse problem with the Unicorns’ hop* s to isolate a receiver one on one — either Jeff Bryan or Rodney Holland — is that the Buffalo secondary is superior, made even better bv free safety Frank Garcia Starters NEW BRAUNFELS Offense C Mike    Buns 12. 201 G Jeff Kunkel 12 213 Steve Diet/    12 212    Tommy Kieslmg, 12. 211 T    Glenn Hetman, 12, 194 Jeff Ward.

Our problem is the field is only 53 yards wide and he covers it easily,” said Streety of Garcia who is also a wingback and a brilliant punt returner. The defensive tackle duo of brothers John and Stephen Hoffman make the inside running game a hazard to your health. Stephen, a 225-pound three-year starter, is extremely mobile and seems to have a hand in every play inside or out John Zammiello, Clemens’ top rusher, is averaging just less than seven yards per carry Zammiello is a good, quick-footed cutback runner who is not particularly fast, but is durable and hard to bring down. Although the Buffaloes haven’t shown the pass a whole lot, they have shown they are capable of having success with that portion of their game. Quarterback Harry Hewlett has a good arm and a fine corps of receivers led by Garcia and Ryan Tee Ie r. In the two games Clemens has faced top-flight competition Hays and Kerrville Tivy the Buffaloes had to secure the win in the final period The Buffaloes trailed Hays iii the fourth quarter and held off a late threat by Tivy before winning bv two points. That emotional victory over Tivy was just last week and the Buffaloes still have Boerne to play next week The Buffaloes are prime upset candidates. “I feel like there is no better time to play them than right now. said Streety We have improved tremendously over the last month We had a solid win over Fredericksburg 28-7 and they had an emotional win over Tivy \nd we are playing with a lot more confidence ” Offensively, the Unicorns are on their game Danny Amador is coming off a 131 -yard game and weeks Our (tacks are play mg p and our passing game ha* little better.’ said Streety certainly mix un the luos this w eek I/..I..,ft LL .ii, ettx good ITH f¥H 4 control W* I .u. • ru t: i * tile clock The odds gotten a rung w< in t be a- great if w.

It’s nothing the Rangers haven’t faced before and they are prepared. “The kids will be ready and are looking forward to the game.” Ranger Coach Joe Matulich. They are still plugging along. I think we are getting over the emotional part of last week’s I14-6) loss to Canyon ” To be successful Friday night, the Rangers are going to have to find consistency in their passing game. Smithson Valley’s only score against Canyon came on a 45-yard pass to Scott Richardson But plays like that haven’t come around often. Tivy’s defense against the run is aggressive and quick and simply does not yield very many yards "We’re not going to spend a whole lot of time running around or through them.” said Matulich. “We’re going to run it but we are going to do a few things to get to the hole quicker. “My concern is that we don’t totally wear ourselves out,” he said We have to go both ways and they don’t. They have a lot more fresher people.” Matulich and the Rangers have quite a few Antlers they have to be concerned with A few of them are in the .Antler backfield Fullback Dave Drapela leads the Antlers’ inside running game, while Derek Allen, Danshell Cooper and Anthony Brown are speedy. breakaway threats Thirman Dionery is the ideal all-purpose player for the Antlers. DI mary is a top free safety, wingback, kick returner and punter. Matulich said he has no qualms about kicking away from Dimery on special teams What the Antlers don’t have is a great passing game, but as Matulich Starters SMITHSON VALLEY Olltnt* C Gt) "J*- Noun Bubba Sui*' S' 185 Phil .

He and defensive end Pat Dyal are two good reasons why Matulich is exploring new ways of attacking the Antler defense. We may use another formation to get by them before they penetrate,” said Matulich “We can’t maintain our blocks, but we can catch them going the wrong way ” lf Tivy is caught going the wrong way it will probably be Hanger tailback Mike Echt who crosses them Smithson Valley will need to avoid turnovers to keep pace with the Tivy Antlers. (Photo by Deryl Clark) up Echt led the Hangers in rushing last week and is capable of breaking loose against any defense It could easily be a letdown week for the Antlers They are coming off an emotional loss to Samuel Clemens and could be looking ahead to an important game against Hays next week The Hangers may have to guard against coming out a little flat themselves They arc coining off a tough loss to interschool district rival Canyon and have had to regroup some for Tivy Hut Matulich can’t flank on a psychological letdown I’m sure Coach 11 )onme I I .aurene** wont let them get down too muc h ” Game time is at 8 p in Santiago first rookie named to AP All-Stars NEW YOHE • AP» — Benito Santiago is the first rookie ever voted to The Associated Press major* league baseball all-star team since the AP began selecting one team for both leagues.
