The Unicorns moved the ball to the 13 — with Rick Purdy, who banged out 106 yards, coming up with a crucial yard on fourth-and-one at the 14 — before Streety called DeLemos’ number.
Guards Doty and Bryan Frassmann blasted the cornerback and linebackers, tight end Mark Millett blocked the end and Deljemos sped in to make it 14-6. Tristan, who kicked both soccer style and conventional style Friday, added the extra point.
“Our line was so awesome tonight that anybody could have run through those holes,” DeLemoa said. “They Just wiped oui the comers and there was a dear lane.”
On the Unicorns’ next aeries, DeLemos took the same play to the opposite side, cut to his right st the line and made a blur for a 46-yard score. Bingham had a perfect downfield block to tie up the last man on the run.
New Braunfels’ fake failed, leaving the Unicorns down 14-13.
But it didn't make a lot of difference. Next series, sweep right. Doty and Frassmann blast the comers, DeLemos scores from 21 yards out.
Next series, sweep right. Doty and Frassmann blast the corners, DeLemos scored from four yards out. And it’s 27-14, New Braunfels.
‘That’s what we have to get out of Urn,” Streety said of his 150-pound tailback. “When they start to Jam up the middfe, like they were starting to do, that's what he has to do.”
Purdy was the main reason the Matadors were Jamming up the middle. The 180-pound fullback banged, twisted and turned through any hole opened by the line and earned his 106 yards, carrying 28 times.
Seguin's offense, which self-destructed in the second quarter with two fumbles and two interceptions, awakened in the third quarter to narrow the margin to 27-28. Francis, who gained 144 yards on the night, scored on a 4-yard swing pass from Norris. The extra point snap went over everyone's head, leaving the Matadors a touchdown back.
But that was as close as they would come, as the New Braunfels offense pot on a 17-play drive that wound up with Tristan’s 20-yard field goal halfway through the fourth quarter.
“We wanted to control the ball Uke that,” Streety said. “We knew what 44 (Francis) could do — he’s a heck of a running back and a heck of an athlete ”

SEGUIN — Never mind that David DeLemos gained 160 yards.
Never mind that New Braunfels’ offensive line owned Seguin’s defense.
In fact, never mind that the Unicorns beat the Matadors 30-20 Friday night.
What really matters is that New Braunfels, down 14-0 before it ever ran an offensive play, had what it took to come from so far back — and make it look relatively easy.
“When it’s all said and done, the biggest lesson well learn from this one is about not being ready to play,” Unicorns Coach Jim Streety said. “I thought it was pretty obvious we were not ready to play football.”
Lineman Tim Doty, part of the offensive line Streety and DeLemos called “awesome” after the game, agreed.
“We took them too lightly; we didn't prepare ourselves well enough,” he noted. “They had a good team, but we made them look better.”
That became painfully obvious when Seguin tailback John “Tiny” Francis went 75 yards for a touchdown on the game's second play. It became almost unbearably obvious when Unicom return man Brett Bingham had his pocket picked on the ensuing kickoff, setting up fullback John Garcia's 15-yard touchdown run five plays later.
It looked like a rout was on when Seguin return man Mike Williams took Bobby Tristan’s punt 96 yards up the nght sideline after the Unicorns' first possession.
But a clipping penalty brought the play back ami the Unicom defense went to work.
Seguin earned one first down to move the ball to the 36, and it turned out to be the Matadors’ last first down until the third

Cougars rout Antonian, 46-0
By ROBERT JOHNSON Editor
The Canyon Cougars accomplished three things against die Antonian Apaches Friday night.
1. They won, 46-0.
2. No one got hurt.
3. Since it was a rout, lots of reserves got to play.
Other than that, Canyon Head Coach Troy Burch saw little to be excited about, despite the one-• aided score. The outmanned Apaches were never in the contest.
“It was good to get that second win under our belts,’’ Burch said. “But as far as improving our football team, the game didn’t help us.”
Nevertheless, the Cougars did move to 2-0 for the first time since 1975 — their last winning season. That year, the Cougars got off to a 3-0 start and wound up 6-4.
Antonian featured an improved, harder-tutting squad than the group Canyon beat 494 last year. Unfortunately for the Apaches, the Cougars have improved too, and Antonian simply could not stop them.

Canyon rolled up 470 yards in total offense — 371 rushing and W passing. The Cougars did not punt. Three turnovers and lota of substituting were the only things which kept the score down.
Antonian’s deepest penetration was to the Canyon 30 on the Apaches' first possession, and that came after a flubbed kickoff and a roughing the passer penalty. Apache quarterback David Daniels may have a good arm, but he rarely got a chance to use it.
He spent most of the evening running for his life — unsuccessfully. The Cougar pass rush sacked him six times for 50 yards in losses.
Canyon blunted the first Apache drive and drove 97 yards for a 7-0 lead. Almost half of the yardage came on a Ronnie Rittimann bomb to Bill Rudelitach, who gathered it in at the Apache I. Rittimann dove over a tackler on a rollout and scored from the I two plays later

Panthers blitz Rangers
By DEBBIE DeLOACH Blaff writer
Smithson Valley’s Stan Irvine probably wouldn’t be a head coach if losing didn’t bother him. Bet that doesn’t mean he can’t foal good about the Rangers’ 304 loss to Pflugerville Friday night.
“This is going to sound stupid to most folks, I Just know it, but I feel better about losing to Pflugerville than I did basting St. Anthony 28-24 last Friday,” Irvins saki.
”1 fail good about our ovsrall performance, the aggressiveness of ow defense. Wa had on* sack against BL Anthony. Wo got to (Panthor quarterback Jeff) Walker eight times, even though their offensive line’s batter. We wore getting around tbs ball great-wa Just missed tackles.”
Ibm credit for those missed tackles goos to Bood running back* Md Pflugerville'* gat ’tm.

The Panthers put together a stalking ground attack, totaling 304 yards in 48 carries. Backs Jimmy Brown and Joey Quinney and quarterback Jeff Walker were largely responsible with yardage totals of 113, 81 and 81, respectively.
Pflugerville’* passing game was nothing to laugh at, either. Walker put the ball in the air 12 times. Six posses were caught for 108 yards, including two touchdowns.
Smithson Valley couldn’t get Us offense cranking. Tbs Rangers managed only two first downs, threw six pomes for 8 yards and two interceptions and rush sd hr 94 yards in 18 carries.
In fact, a first-quarter fumble recovery by Shown Burton at tho Pflugerville 21 aet up the deepest Ranger penetration all night.

New Braunfels played in spurts in reaching Ae consolation bracket semi-finals “We played well enough to win against Southwest,” New Braunfels Coach Claudia Perry said “But then Lockhart came ready to play. We were ready to play, too. but I don’t think our players understood how intense Lockhart was ”
