New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 29, 1991, New Braunfels, Texas Tuesday, October 29, 1991SportsHerakj-Ztftung, New Braunfels, Texas Page 7 Shoot-out won by Newk in 3 SV, Canyon wrap up regular season By JOE BELK Sports Editor John Newcombe won the third annual shoot-out at his tennis ranch on Sunday, although Newcombe’i victory wasn’t due to home-court advantage. Owen Davidson, who lives on the ranch and is director of its Competitive Edge tennis academy, lost to Newcombe in the finals of Sunday's event The shoot-out, pioneered at Newk's two years ago, is a singles tournament in which best-of-three tiebreakers count as an entiie match. The entire tournament which involved eight legends of tennis, took approximately 90 minutes. Newcombe lost 7-2 to Davidson in the first tiebreaker, then won 7-2 in the second to force sudden-death. Both players took one-point advantages, hut Newcombe broke a 2-2 tie with consecutive points, winning the match with an ace. "It's real do-or-die stuff, isn't it?" Newcombe said. "Every point is like a match-point. It's constant pressure." Davidson appeared unbeatable for most of the event, defeating Ken Rosewall in sudden-death in the quarterfinals before upsetting two-time defending champion Marty Riessen in the semis. His momentum continued to the finals, making unlikely backhands and placing shots well to keep Newcombe on the run. Newcombe said he hit a shot early in the first tiebreaker which he thought was a winner, only to have Davidson return it with a shot down the line. "The next two or three points (after that), he had me running all over the court," Newcombe said. "He really did play well. That's the best I've seen him hit in a while." Davidson said he was happy with his play, adding that he didn't expect to reach the finals. "I had match-point in the last one and didn't make it, so Lcan’t complain," he said. "I thought I played well." All three local volleyball teams play at home today, with Canyon and Smithson Valley completing their regular seasons and New Braunfels playing a match which could keep the Unicorns in the 2S-SA title chase for the time being. New Braunfels hosts Seguin at 7 p jn., in its penultimate regular season match. The Unicorns, with a win, can keep San Marcos from clinching the district title today; the Rattlers, however, need to take two of their last three to win the championship. The Unicorns have already clinched a playoff berth, and Sui Marcos — a half-game ahead of New Braunfels hut with one fewer match played—can do the same today when the Rattlers host 3-7 East Central. If San Marcos wins today, the Rattlers would need to defeat also-ran South San once in two meetings to clinch the title. Because of a first-round scheduling mix-up, San Marcos and South San meet both Friday and Saturday. Should New Braunfels win the second playoff spot. the Unicorns would likely face Churchill in bidistrict. The Chargers can clinch today, when they take on second-place Roosevelt. Churchill is 8-0 in District 26-5A and 26-4 on the season, having only lost to 28-5A powerhouses Clark and Jay. Smithson Valley ends its season today against Bastrop at 7 p.m., with the Rangerettes hoping to conclude the year on a positive note. Smithson Valley is 1-8 in district, but has played well against all of the playoff teams and contenders. One of the team’s most disappointing matches was its first-round meeting with Bastrop, however, and the team will hope to avenge that loss by knocking off the fourth-place Bean in the finale. Canyon, which clinched the District 26-4 A championship on Friday at Hays, is 9-0 in diaoict and will look to earn its third consecutive undefeated district season when 1-8 Lockhart visits today for a 7 pm. match. The Cougarettes still do not know who they will play in bidistrict, but they do know it will be either Westlake or Anderson.

The most critical 26-4A game of the day takes {dace in Schertz, where Clemens hosts Hays with second place on the line. The teams are currently tied for second, and the winner will go to the playoffs. Clemens is looking for its second consecutive playoff berth after a long absence, while the Rebels are hoping for their third in four years after missing last aeaaon. In the other 25-5A game, Hallandale hosts McCollum in a battle of third- and fourth-place teams. Harlan-dale still has faint playoff hopes, which will be erased if the Indians lose or if San Marcos wins. Landa Ladies host annual tournament The Lands Ladies Golf Association will hold its annual invitational tournament on Wednesday, with a shotgun start at 9 im. The course will be closed to the public until approximately 2 p.m. on Wednesday. The Landa Ladies also played a best-ball twosome tournament on Oct. 23, with Mary Kay Twite and Jan Magnuson teaming to win the event The first-place team of Twite and Magnuson scored a 38, followed in second by Phyllis Yeazel and Marge Miller, who paired up to score a 62. In third place was the team of Alice Simpson ami Sarah Delashmutt, with a 63. Magnuson had a bird (luring tournament play, and Miller and Yeazel hit chip-ins. LaRus Lieke Moore McElroy Dwyer LaRue, Lieke, Moos players of week By JOE BELK Sports Editor When asked to name his players of the week, Smithson Valley Coach Joe Matulich did so with respect. * ’Mr. LaRue,” he said of the senior, who earned the Rangers’ MVP honors for both offense and defense in an outstanding all-around performance. Jason LaRue also receives the Herald-Zeitung's Comal County Offensive Player of the Week award for his efforts against Clemens, and he shares the Defensive Player of the Week honors with two New Braunfels players who led the Unicorns’ strong defensive effort against East Central. LaRue had 19 tackles on defense despite having to play a more expanded role in the Rangers’ offense. He responded on that side of the ball as well, scoring one touchdown rushing and another receiving. The senior, playing in the backfield with fullback Jason Bois, caught four passes for 94 yards and rushing seven times for 37 yards. "He just did everything," Matulich said. ’ ’They know who #14 is, I’ll assure you that. Everybody knows who #14 is. We may change his number this week. They’ll still find him." Sharing defensive player honors with LaRue are Eric Lieke and Cody Mom of New Braunfels, both of whom played extremely well in a strong effort against East Central. Lieke was responsible for containment of the explosive Hornet quarterback/slot back Richard Harvey, and New Braunfels Coach Lew Simmonds said he and Dustin Simons at the other end did a remarkable job in this area. Moos, a junior recently moved up from the JV, had a great game at nose guard while platooning with Sammy Gutierrez. "He really made the plays," Simmonds said of Moos. "He just did great. He’s a very aggressive young man.” Simmonds said the entire defense had a great game in the Unicorns’ 34-20 victory against talented East Central. "lf they were to continue playing like that and the offense continues to click, we’re going to have some more success this season," he said. Simmonds named the entire Unicom offensive unit as a collective MVP. "We played too well at every position to single out any one person," he said. "Our offensive line played extremely well. Any one of our three backs can get it done — they’re all running tough. Mikey (Sierra, the quarterback) is just playing super, and Dennis Bryan is catching ^tything close." KC rallies to top LA The Unicorn offense was without Kyle Herman for most of the game, after the star tailback left with a broken bone in his ankle. Simmonds said he will be out for four to six weeks, but that it was a clean break and a complete recovery is expected. Canyon had two standout defensive performances against Hays on Friday. Keith Moore, who was moved up from the junior vanity during district play, coned Canyon’s defensive MVP designation with a 12-tackle game against the Rebels. The junior inside linebacker also recovered a Hays fumble. Safety Trey Daffln also played well, making ll tackles and causing a fumble. Offensively for Canyon, Jeremy McElroy led the Cougars’ rushing effort with 49 yards on nine carries, and Johnny Schaas completed eight t/13 passes for 32 yards. Honorable mentions for Smithson Valley on defense were tackle Adam Sumner and linebacker Amulfo Hernandez. Mike Dwyer had a great blocking game for the Rangers against one of Clemens’ toughest players, and Boss and quarterback Jason Long also played well. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Los Angeles Raiders couldn’t get into the end zone when they had the chance, thai couldn’t put the game away when they had the opportunity. The Kansas Qty Chiefs made them p»y- Steve Dc Berg capped a rally from an 18-7 deficit with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Tim Barnett with 31 seconds to play as Kansas City overtook the Raiders 24-21 on Monday night.

The Raiders, who Uke Kansas Qty have next week off, play their next game at Denver against die division-leading Broncos. "I don’t think any game is more crucial than any other," Raiders Cooch Art Shell said in downplaying the loss. "In two weeks we have to go down Md play Denver, hi two weeks we’ve got another crucial game." Los Angeles led 21-10 and was closing in on a potential game-clinching score in the fourth quarter when Lloyd Burnies intercepted Jay Schroeder’s pass "ft* the goal line and returned it 83 yards to sa up Christian Okoye’s 1-yard touchdown midway through the fourth quarter U was the last in a series of missed opportunites for the Raiders, who had a chance to take command early and couldn’t do it.
