Gonzales faces reborn Pirates in regionals By CEDRIC IGLEHART

The Apaches did their best imitation of a mailman last Friday by finding a way to deliver despite the rainy conditions. Gonzales turned in another impressive performance en route to winning a Class 3A Division I area round game over Fredericksburg, 19-7. “I thought we executed our game plan very well,” said head coach Ricky Lock. “Our defense shut down the players we had to shut down to win the game. On offense, we ran the ball effectively and made first downs to keep the ball out

of their hands.” With the win, the Apaches advance into the next round of the playoffs where they will square off with Rockport-Fulton this Saturday in the Region IV semifinals. The Pirates (5-7) are the runners-up in District 303A where they only picked up two wins in league play. After being outscored by an average of 33.5-24.6 during the regular season, Rockport-Fulton has reversed their fortunes by picking up a 42-13 win over Hondo in bi-district and upsetting 9-2 Kingsville King last week. “They’re on a roll right now,” Lock said. “They

Gonzales vs Rockport-Fulton

Saturday, 6 p.m. Memorial Stadium in Victoria had some hurt people but they’ve got them back. Since they’ve been back they’re 4-2, so they’re playing a lot better now than they were earlier in the year.” The Pirate offense likes

to operate out of the pistol formation where they run a variety of zone reads and counters. The focal point is quarterback Anthony Resendez, who leads the team with 1,115 yards rushing

and 12 touchdowns. He has also completed 80 of his 163 passes for 1,079 yards and 10 other scores with eight interceptions. “He is the man, it’s all about him,” said Lock. “They do a lot of things to get him isolated one-onone.” When Resendez is not carrying the ball, he hands it off to big back Domingo Gonzalez (117 rushes, 626 yards, 2TD) or scat back Matt Larsen (4 TD). The leading receivers for the Pirates are Larsen (21 catches, 322 yards), Alex Fahrenthold (21-365, 4TD) and Joshua Jones (22-231, 2TD). Rockport-Fulton has been fairly porous in their

3-3 stack defense all year, but seems to have found their groove in the postseason where they have only allowed 19 total points. “They’re kind of a bend but don’t break defense,” Lock said. “They give up a lot of yards and at times a lot of points, but they’ve been playing a lot better since they got some kids back from injuries.” Leading tackler for the Pirates is DB Dustin Moses (101, 3 INT) and other players to watch include DB Daniel Williams (88 tackles, 2 INT), and LB Brian Tran (82 tck). Kickoff for the game is set for 6 p.m. at Memorial Stadium in Victoria.

GONZALES – In the third quarter of Monday night’s game against Lockhart, the Gonzales Lady Apaches girls’ basketball team yielded a lead to the visitors. Gonzales eventually got it back and held on to it thanks to some superb defensive play in a 55-49 win over the Lady Lions. “I thought the turning point was when we were playing defense very well and it picked us up,” Lady Apaches head coach Valerie Akpan said. “We were able to pressure Lockhart and get some easy baskets. Our defense provided a boost for us and it carried over into the offensive side of the ball.” The win improves Gonzales to 4-4 on the season and the team is coming along okay. “We learn a lot after each game,” Akpan said. “Each game, we get better and correct our mistakes.” A pair of Kelsey Hardy

buckets put Gonzales ahead 4-2 early in the opening quarter. Lockhart rallied for three straight points to go up 5-4 and Gonzales responded with a 4-1 run as Ashli Malatek rebounded a missed shot and Hardy scored again. The teams fought to a 10-10 tie at the end of the period. In the second frame, the Lady Apaches used a 6-0 run to turn a 14-14 game into a 20-14 advantage with baskets from Malatek and Tajerrica Smith. Lockhart ended the quarter with a 6-2 run to cut Gonzales’ lead to 22-20. In the third quarter, the Lady Lions came back from a 25-22 deficit to go ahead, 28-25, on points from Crystal Trejo, Deana Quintanilla and Tassandara McCelland. Later, Lockhart managed a 33-29 lead, only for the Lady Apaches to score eight of the last 10 points of the period as Hardy and Smith connected on shots with the team getting a good number of defensive

rebounds. Early in the final period, Jordan Pitman made a pair of free throws to put the Lady Apaches ahead 4335. Lockhart then went on an 8-0 run to stage a comeback. Gonzales went back into the lead after Amanda Dixson converted twice from the free-throw line. Gonzales then took a 51-47 after Hardy, Malatek and Erika Hernandez cashed in on turnovers and offensive rebounds. The Lady Apaches finished the game with a 4-2 run.

Rivals Shiner and Flatonia have only met during the regular season, when they have been in the same district. Friday will add a new chapter into the rivalry as the Comanches (8-3) take on the Bulldogs (9-2) at Cuero’s Gobbler Stadium in the Class 1A Division I regional playoff. Shiner was a 14-13 winner against the Mason Punchers last week in the area round. “Played hard, got a few breaks and were ahead when the game ended,” Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said. “It was a physical and exciting game.” “I am proud of how our kids fought. It was a very physical game and the weather conditions caused us to have to deal with some hypothermia issues.” Flatonia was a 28-14 winner over La Villa in their area-round game. “It was a very competitive and hard-fought game,” Flatonia head coach Chris Freytag said. “We had a first-quarter turnover that cost us a likely touchdown. The kids responded well by playing solid defense from the second quarter on and our offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage in the second half. We took advantage of a La Villa turnover in the second half.” Anticipation is building in both camps for Friday’s game. “They are a very good football team and the seniors have been starting since they were sophomores back in 2011,” Cerny said. “Flatonia is going to be very experienced. Our fans and kids will be up for this game.” “This is going to be an exciting game with Shiner getting that upset over Mason,” Freytag said. “We have a lot of respect for the Shiner team and their

traditions. Our goal has always been to get back to where we used to be (playoffs) and this year, we took a big step.” “This is going to be a game between two evenlymatched, well-coached and well-disciplined teams. We are so similar it is scary.” Freytag said he thinks with the game being played in Cuero, it will be the most attended Flatonia-Shiner game ever. The Bulldogs have had a lot of success as a team running the football with at least four or five different ball carriers a game including Will Bruns, Marcus Mica, Mitchell Mica, Aaron Manzano, Gus Venegas and Dalton Griffin. Flatonia lately has executed the passing game with quarterback Bruns finding key targets Venegas and Reed Rightmer. “Flatonia will come right at you with their run game and then try to get you with a play-action pass,” Cerny said. “We will need to play physical and our secondary will have to make sure we are on our toes, ready for the pass.” Shiner’s defense will be led by senior linebacker Jacob Stafford. Flatonia comes out in a 4-3 and loves to stunt. Look for Bruns and Marcus Mica to lead the Flatonia defense. “Our offense will need to figure out to slow their stunting, move the football well and not have turnovers,” Cerny said. Stafford, Marcus Coleman, Tyler Patek and Chad Neubauer should all get plenty of carries. Freytag said the ‘Dog defense will need to make plays, read keys and be disciplined. “We will especially need to tackle Jacob Stafford well because he is so strong,” he said. “The Shiner defensive front seven is good so our offensive line will have to control the line of scrimmage and stay on our blocks longer. We need to win the field position bat-

tle.” Class 2A Division I regional Hallettsville (12-0) vs McGregor (11-1) The Hallettsville Brahmas advanced another round as they simply pounded Jourdanton, 51-6, Friday in Seguin. “I think our kids handled the adversity brought on by the weather,” Hallettsville head coach Tommy Psencik said. “We had to make lots of adjustments.” The Brahmas will face McGregor Bulldogs at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Manor Mustang Stadium in the Class 2A Division I regional playoff. “McGregor is a total team. They have no real standouts. Just about every player is good,” Psencik said. “They have speed and they all execute very well.” The ‘Dogs are a spread team that compliments their passing game with inside and outside zone running plays. Psencik said the players on the Brahma defense need to be aware of are running backs C.J. Sims and Nate Seale, quarterback Troy Allison and wide receiver Chance Seale. “Our defense will need to stay the course of playing well and continuing to improve,” he said. “We have to swarm to the football.” Psencik described McGregor’s defense as fast and packed with talent. “They do not have as many two-way players so they are going to be more fresh,” he said. “Our offense will just need to continue executing the game plan.” Players to watch on the defense are defensive back Branden Dietzman and lineman Sam Bass.

Apaches stifle Fredericksburg in area round game By MARK LUBE

LEANDER ­— The Gonzales Apaches faced another playoff opponent that had some momentum and again, the Tribe turned them away. Gonzales (8-4) severely limited the Fredericksburg Fighting Billies, 19-7, in a cold and rather wet game played at John Gupton Stadium in Leander. “They had won 10 of 11 coming into this game and are a good bunch,” Gonzales head coach Ricky Lock said. “Early on, the weather conditions were good for us.” The Billies came into the contest averaging around 400 yards of offense a game. Friday, they were held to a little over 200 yards, about half of their normal average. “Our defense was just outstanding,” Lock said. The Apaches got things done on the offensive side of the football as well, with 243 yards rushing, led again by quarterback/run-

ning back Alyas Ramirez who tallied 223 yards and two touchdowns. “Our offensive line played well,” Lock said. “I am just proud of our overall effort and we had a lot of young kids come through for us tonight. The seniors have stepped up to lead us into some success.” Gonzales has had to deal with some unlucky breaks, especially some injuries, but have stayed the course and are playing their best football, Lock said. Fredericksburg receiver Brayden Beard was the main offensive threat Gonzales was especially aware off — and ready to face as Beard was held to 16 yards on three catches. “We jammed him at the line and they moved him around some,” Lock said. “Our coaches did a good job of putting our defenders in the right place at the right time. He is a very good player and reminds of Ckody (Burton) from 2007. Beard had a few moments tonight but our kids shut him down for the most

She helped lead the Lady Bulldogs to the playoffs while leading the team in kills and blocks in a lot of the games. Brown was joined by teammate, senior Callie Witte, who was

named best Setter. Cuero freshman Martina Stavinoha was chosen for Newcomer of the Year. On the All-District First Team were Cuero juniors Missy Odom and Justyce Turner. Also selected were junior Faith Hagan and senior Jaccari Hights of Yoakum. Lady Apache senior Danyelle Glass was named to the Second Team All-

District; seniors Shelby Pesek and Reagan Renken of Yoakum were selected as well. Chosen for the second team from Cuero were sophomores Mia Knetig and Kaelen Sievers. 26-3A All-District Volleyball Team MVP: Riley Fishbeck, La VOLLEY, Page B5

The Billies seemed to have better luck on their second time with the ball. Quarterback Kyle Grona completed a 9-yard pass to Joaquin Rivera on a second-and-7 play for a first down to the Gonzales 46. APACHES, Page B4

The senior two-way starter was in rare form during the Apaches’ big 19-7 win over Fredericksburg in last Friday’s area round of the playoffs. Johnson had 16 tackles on defense and was equally aggressive on offense, where he was credited with nine pancakes. Gonzales’ defense was as unyielding as the cold and rainy conditions that raged for most the game, holding the high-octane Billies’ offense to just 209 total yards.

From coaches’ reports

LEANDER — Jacob Stafford’s 1-yard touchdown dive and two-point conversion run was enough to push the Shiner Comanches, 14-13, past Mason in the area round at Leander Bible Stadium on Friday.

The Punchers got on the board in the second quarter with a 1-yard run by quarterback Elliot Bibb. Shiner came within 7-6 in the third quarter as Tyler Patek tossed a 29-yard pass to Chad Neubauer and the extra point was no good. Mason went ahead 13-6 as Seth Hudson reeled in a 78-yard pass from Bibb and Mason missed their point after. Stafford led the Comanches on the ground with 41 yards on 20 carries. For Mason, Bibb ran for 52 yards and passed for 155 yards on 8-of-18 passing.

Grona later had a 14yard run to the 30. A couple of plays later, he was tackled for a loss by Gonzales defensive lineman Wade Miller. Rivera took a 16yard option pitch to set up a fourth-and-3 play at the 23 which Grona converted with an 11-yard run. A couple of plays later, it was fourth down at the 11 and Grona threw incomplete as Gonzales got some good defensive pressure and secondary coverage. On the next drive, Gonzales ended up punting close to the 50 and the Billies got inside the red zone, only to turn the ball over on downs again as Grona threw incomplete on fourth down. In the third quarter, both defenses rose to the occa-

kick of 13 yards set up Gonzales at their 43. The Apaches took their time and controlled the football with a 14-play drive that consumed nearly eight minutes and a lot of Billie defensive energy. Ramirez capped the drive with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Brant Philippus. Gonzales missed the twopoint play but led 13-0 with 7:13 left in the ball game. A short kickoff gave the Billies good field position at the Gonzales 48 and they went to the passing game. Grona had a 16-yard pass to Rivera to the 19 and later converted a fourth down with a 7-yard completion to Beard. Beard finished the drive as he lined up as a halfback and took an option pitch

Gonzales responded quickly with a two-play, 61yard drive. Ramirez took a toss and got his longest run of the game, a 45-yarder. He scored from 16 yards out to put the Tribe ahead 19-7. Fredericksburg threatened once more as they got inside the 10, threw incomplete on fourth and goal from the 15 but were given a first down on a holding call on Gonzales.Grona threw incomplete on fourth down with just seconds left to end the drive.

Gonzales, Yoakum girls in action at Lady Apache Tourney


Gonzales replied with five of the next seven points to lead 30-25 at the end of the third. Gonzales then outscored the Lady Eagles 9-6 in the final eight minutes for the win.

GONZALES – After losing a close one to Marion (4443) just a few hours before, the Gonzales Lady Apaches quickly rebounded to defeat the Bastrop Cedar Creek Lady Eagles, 39-31, Thursday afternoon in the Gonzales Tournament. “This win gave us our spirits back,” Lady Apaches head coach Valerie Akpan said. Gonzales made strides in the game on both sides of the ball. “We played our game well by moving the ball well and we had better defensive positioning,” Akpan said. The Lady Apaches (2-2) managed a six-point lead at the end of the first half and Cedar Creek worked hard in the third quarter to come all the way just two points. Gonzales stood its ground and came away with the victory. “We started putting more pressure on them,” Akpan said. “We sped up the game and got lots of quick points, which got me feeling very energetic.” Two baskets by Gonzales’ Ericka Hernandez and one by Renae Camarillo gave the Lady Apaches a 6-3 lead in the

Apaches The Gonzales Lady Apaches had a great first quarter against the Taylor Lady Ducks Friday morning in the Gonzales Tournament, taking a 12-3 lead. Then Taylor fought back and fought back, leading 24-18 at the break, 29-26 after three quarters and held off the Lady Apaches, 41-39. Gonzales opened the game with the first 10 points as Tajerrica Smith made three shots, including a triple, Erika Hernandez made a basket and Amanda Dixson made a free throw. Taylor got three points on a 3-from-12 effort from the freethrow line and Smith capped action in the quarter with two free throws. The Lady Ducks got hot in the second frame, scoring, 10 of the first 12 points, coming all the way within 14-13. After Taylor took their first lead at 15-14, Gonzales came back with a bucket by Alex James to get back into the lead, 16-15. The Lady Ducks ended the quarter on a 9-2 run for the halftime advantage. Taylor eventually extended their lead to 29-21 in the third frame but Gonzales began a little comeback of its own — Sheridan Tate connected on a jumper and later set up Smith for a three-point basket. In the fourth box, Gonzales got a tie game at 35-35 on the long-range shot by Smith and Taylor went up by two points on a bucket by KJ Guyton. The Lady Apaches forced a 3737 tie as Tate got an offensive board and scored. Hernandez brought Gonzales to within one point, 40-39, with about 20 seconds left after Taylor had gone up 40-37.

Yoakum beats VW junior varsity It took most of the first quarter for the Yoakum Lady Bulldogs basketball team to get into the game. Yoakum opened the Gonzales Tournament with a 4717 win over the Victoria West junior varsity team Thursday morning, improving to 3-1 on the season. “It took a while for us to get started,” first-year Yoakum coach Zach Burleson said. “It is early in the season and we are still learning.” The teams went through a little over the first quarter without any points before Jacarri Hights grabbed an offensive rebound and scored a short jumper. “I was pleased with the effort we gave after the first six minutes,” Burleson said. “Just took a while for us to wake up.” Victoria West responded with the triple from Morgan Trevino for a 3-2 lead and Yoakum scored nine straight points on a free throw from Celine Markert, Latrice Brown got a steal and fed Desire Garza, a little later Garza scored again after a pass from Brown.

Brown scored after a dish from Hights who later a hit a jumper after a defensive rebound, putting Yoakum ahead 11-3 after the first quarter. The Lady Dogs opened the second period with six of the first eight points as baskets from Garza, Markert and Hights. Victoria West got a triple from Darijanna Tasso to come within 18-5, and the Lady ‘Dogs closed out the quarter with a 10-3 run.
