PREP VOLLEYBALL | TAPPS 4A STATE TOURNAMENT

LADY FLYERS FALL SHORT Dream season for St. Joseph ends with loss in championship game to Arlington Grace Prep

TIMELINE: FROM ACCIDENT TO CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

BY TAYLOR MITCHELL TMITCELL@VICAD.COM

SAN ANTONIO – Just three weeks ago, the St. Joseph volleyball team was involved in a serious accident that saw their bus roll over with the team inside of it. Nobody was seriously injured in the crash, but there was an emotional impact on the team that brought them even closer together and made them stronger as a team. The Lady Flyers took that team unity all the way to the TAPPS Class 4A state championship game for the first time in See more school history Saturday morning where they squared off against Arlington photos from Satur- Grace Prep. Leading 20-17 in the fourth game, day’s TAPPS 4A Grace Prep scored five unanswered points to win the state title, 25-16, 25-12, volleyball final in San 23-25, 25-17, denying the Lady Flyers the Antonio on perfect ending to a season that had featured many ups and downs. C6 “We came out a little nervous. It’s a state title game, though and you’re going to be a little nervous,” said senior Carly Boles. “We tried to use those nerves to our advantage, but those first two games didn’t come out in our favor. “A lot of it was mental. We are definitely a strong team,” said St. Joseph coach Allyson Griffin. “They were very good. It just took us awhile, mentally, to show up. In the end it took a little too long.”

COWBOYS NOTEBOOK

NFL WEEK 9 AT- A -GL ANCE the Ravens are one of the worst ATS (2-5) teams this season. Their defense is banged up, but Baltimore, coming off its bye week, should be well prepared for Browns rookies Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden (624 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT last 3 games).

BRONCOS (4-3) AT BENGALS (3-4) LINE: Broncos by 3½; Over/Under: 47½ TIME: noon

Who would have thought this Week 9 matchup would have been an intriguing game before the season started? You’ll hear TV analyst Dan Dierdorf (yawn!) wax poetic about Broncos QB Peyton Manning, who leads the NFL with a 109.0 QB rating. Manning is also 7-0 all-time vs. Cincinnati. But I think this one comes down to defense. The Bengals’ ‘D’ is tied for third in the NFL and leads the AFC with 23 sacks. Bengals DT Geno Atkins has seven sacks this season and 14 ½ sacks since last season. Underdogs are 71-44-3 ATS (62 percent).

THE PICK: Bengals

CARDINALS (4-4) AT PACKERS (5-3)

THE PICK: Ravens

PANTHERS (1-6) AT REDSKINS (3-5) LINE: Redskins by 3 ½; O/U: 46 ½ TIME: noon

I was surprised by the Redskins’ effort last week vs. Pittsburgh — 10 dropped passes didn’t help Robert Griffin III. He reminds me of another young, talented, athletic QB: Cam Newton. He’s in a sophomore slump after taking the NFL by storm last season. Newton and the Panthers came within a whisker of beating the Bears last week. Visiting ’dogs are 48-26-3 ATS this season.

BUCCANEERS (3-4) AT RAIDERS (3-4)

Two teams headed in opposite directions. Arizona has dropped four straight after a surprising 4-0 start. If they ever get a legitimate QB, they’d be a contender. Green Bay, meanwhile, has won three straight. For the second straight week, the Pack is a big favorite at home. They’re 14-5-1 ATS combined at home in the months of November and December dating to 2007.

This is a battle of two of the NFL’s coolest logos. Call it the Pirate Bowl. You know who’s been a treasure this season? Bucs rookie back Doug Martin, the only NFC player with more than 500 yards rushing and 200 yards receiving.

BEARS (6-1) AT TITANS (3-5)

VIKINGS (5-3) AT SEAHAWKS (4-4)

LINE: Bears by 3 ½; O/U: 43 ½ TIME: noon

LINE: Seahawks by 5; O/U: 38 ½ TIME: 3:05 p.m.

THE PICK: Packers

Chicago’s defense has been downright ridiculous. Led by CBs Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman, the Bears have returned six interceptions for touchdowns (the kids call them “Pick-6’s”), the most of any team in NFL history through seven games. Titans RB Chris Johnson has played well of late, but the Bears’ run defense is No. 1 in the NFL (77.9 yards per game, 1 TD).

THE PICK: Bears

LINE: Raiders by 1 ½; O/U: 46 TIME: 3:05 p.m.

IRVING – By most generally accepted standards, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is having a horrible season. With 15 turnovers – a league-high 13 interceptions and two fumbles – he has seemingly regressed from last season’s career-best touchdown-to-interception ratio of 31-10 to the reckless “Tony Oh No” ways of his younger years. But if you listen to the talk coming out of the Cowboys’ Valley Ranch headquarters, the spin is quite different and decidedly more Romo-friendly. Coach Jason Garrett readily acknowledges that turnovers are the

single-biggest reason for the team’s 3-4 record heading into Sunday’s must-win game against the undefeated Atlanta Falcons (7-0). Yet, he said the problem is much bigger and deeper than Romo, while going into great detail on how his maligned quarterback is still making good decisions with the football and a great majority of the interceptions this season were because of poor routes or breakdowns in other areas. Garrett pointed out that the first two of his four interceptions in the 29-24 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday were because of a bad route by Dez Bryant and failure to make a play on the ball by Miles Austin. The other two were great plays by the Giants’ defense rather than bad ones by Romo, Garrett said. Likewise, vice president Stephen Jones said his confidence in Romo remains very high – so much so

that he remains focused on signing the 10-year veteran to a contract extension to ensure that he retires as a member of the Cowboys. Jones has begun preliminary negotiations with Romo’s representatives in hopes of getting a new deal done before his contract expires at the end of next season. “We still feel that way,” Jones said. “We’ve got a lot of confidence in Tony. Tony has a lot of confidence in himself. He is going to be fine. He is not the problem.” Jones said Romo is over-scrutinized because of the high-profile nature of the position in Dallas and the championship quarterbacks before him. Jones said Romo has pulled out of bad stretches before and will again, and evoked comparisons to Super Bowl champions John Elway and Brett Favre, who had disappointing turns early in their careers.

TEXANS NOTEBOOK

THE PICK: Buccaneers

There are certain teams that have vexed me the last few seasons — and caused my gray hair to turn white. Seattle is one of them. It’s as simple as this: When Seattle is the visiting team, pick against them; when Seattle is home, pick them. The Seagulls have covered six straight home games, and are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 home contests.

THE PICK: Seahawks

STEELERS (4-3) AT GIANTS (6-2)

DOLPHINS (4-3) AT COLTS (4-3)

LINE: Giants by 3 ½; O/U: 47 ½ TIME: 3:25 p.m.

LINE: Dolphins by 2; O/U: 43 TIME: noon

If the playoffs started today, Miami and Indy would be in. How many of you thought that would happen? Who could’ve predicted the answer to this question, too: Who is leading the NFL in receiving yards? Colts WR Reggie Wayne, who is enjoying a renaissance season with 757 yards. QB Matt Moore might have to start for Miami. In a close one, I’ll take the home underdog.

THE PICK: Colts

The chatter all week has been about the 2004 NFL draft that produced Eli Manning as the No. 1 pick and Ben Roethlisberger as the No. 11 pick. Who’s better? They both have a pair of Super Bowl rings, so time will tell. Let’s focus on the game. The Giants look to start the second half strong after another 6-2 start. They’re 4-1-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last six games overall, and are also 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite of four or less points.

THE PICK: Giants

BILLS (3-4) AT TEXANS (6-1)

COWBOYS (3-4) AT FALCONS (7-0)

LINE: Texans by 10; O/U: 47 ½ TIME: noon

I continue to beat the drum for Texans DE J.J. Watt as MVP. He leads the NFL in sacks (9 ½) and is a must-watch on every play. Houston has yet to allow a rushing TD. I usually stay away from picking double-digit favorites, but I like the Texans, who have covered five of their last six when favored by eight or more points.

THE PICK: Texans

LINE: Falcons by 4; O/U: 47 ½ Time: 7:20 p.m.

It’s funny how sports work. If Dez Bryant’s fingertips land inbounds, we’re all blasting the Giants for blowing a 23-0 lead and praising the Cowboys for an amazing comeback. But we know how things ended. I loved Atlanta vs. Philly last week, but not here. Dallas has covered eight of its last nine vs. NFC South opponents dating to 2008 and is the more desperate team.

THE PICK: Cowboys

LIONS (3-4) AT JAGUARS (1-6) LINE: Lions by 4; O/U: 44 TIME: noon

The Lions have covered three straight after starting the season 0-4 ATS. The Jags are one of five home underdogs in Week 9. Home ’dogs are 23-18 ATS this season. Worth a shot.

THE PICK: Jaguars

RAVENS (5-2) AT BROWNS (2-6) LINE: Ravens by 3 ½; O/U: 42 ½ TIME: noon

QB has committed 15 turnovers, but outlook from team is sunny

FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM

THE PICK: Panthers

LINE: Packers by 11; O/U: 43 ½ TIME: noon

Coaches, front office have faith in Romo

MONDAY NIGHT EAGLES (3-4) AT SAINTS (2-5) LINE: Saints by 3; O/U: 52 Time: 7:30 p.m.

What else is new? Talk in Philly is whether QB Michael Vick should be benched. If there’s any week for him to have a breakout game, this is it against the NFL’s worst defense. Eagles can’t let Drew Brees pick them apart the way Matt Ryan did last week.

THE PICK: Eagles

Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels has become a key threat for the team on offense.

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DANIELS SOLID SEASON GIVES TEXANS ANOTHER THREAT Tight end is having a career year, helping Houston to 6-1 record

HOUSTON (AP) – Last season, Owen Daniels thought he had finally returned to the player he was before tearing a knee ligament in 2009. After comparing film from then and now, the Houston Texans tight end realizes he wasn’t quite there yet. “I can look on film and tell a difference with the way I’m moving this year compared to last year,” he said. “I could probably show anybody and they could probably recognize it. So that’s what I like seeing. I’m excited to see that, and hopefully I can continue to look like that and continue to move around well.” Now that he really has returned

to form, Daniels has re-emerged as of the top tight ends in the NFL, and gives the Texans’ powerful offense another threat. “He’s playing right now as good as I’ve ever seen him play since he’s been with me, and he’s played pretty darn good in the past,” Houston coach Gary Kubiak said. “Hopefully – we keep our fingers crossed here – he stays healthy. He’s on his way to a big year.” Daniels made the Pro Bowl in 2008 after catching 70 passes for a career-high 862 yards. He had 519 yards receiving and a team-leading five touchdowns in 2009 before injuring the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the eighth game of the season. He was progressing well in his rehabilitation from that injury before doctors discovered a stress fracture in his right

kneecap, which slowed his progress. He returned to play 11 games in 2010, but his 471 yards receiving were the fewest he’d had since finishing with 352 as a rookie in 2006. Daniels started 15 games and had 677 yards receiving a year ago. “I know I felt pretty good at times last season,” Daniels said. “I felt like I was wearing down toward the end of the season, but sometime during last season I felt pretty good and felt more explosive. Definitely this offseason with what I was doing, I felt really, really good.” That good offseason work has carried over into the season where he is fourth in the NFL among tight ends with 416 yards receiving and four touchdowns. His work has led some to compare this season to his Pro Bowl year of 2008.

Marshall Purdy, 12, bags buck in south Victoria County

Marshall Purdy, 12, of Victoria, harvested his first deer on last Saturday during the Special Youth Weekend of the TPWD 2012 Whitetail Deer Season. The 5 1/2-year-old, 8-point buck had a 18 1/4-inch outside spread and was taken in southern Victoria County.

Carter Blaha gets first nine-point buck

Lena Ramon harvests first whitetail deer

Carter Blaha killed his first buck last Saturday. Carter is 5 years old and was hunting with his PoPo, Leon Leopold. He is the grandson of Kenneth and Debbie Gawlik and Dottie Blaha, son of Shawn and Jodi Blaha. The nine point buck scored a 118. The buck was shot in Lavaca County near Hallettsville.

Lena Ramon harvested her first whitetail deer with the Texas Youth Hunting Program on the Lavaca-Navida River Authority land in Jackson, County. Lena, her father Gilbert Ramon USMC (Ret.), and an LNRA guide took this doe on the first morning hunt. The Ramons live in Inez.

MANZIEL, TEXAS A&M SHRED MISSISSIPPI STATE

Redshirt freshman QB is 30 for 36 passing against ranked Bulldogs

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) – Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies shredded another Southeastern Conference defense. The redshirt freshman picked apart Mississippi State by completing 30 of 36 passes for 311 yards and danced around the No. 17 Bulldogs for 129 yards rushing and two touchdowns, leading the 16th-ranked Aggies to a 38-13 victory on Saturday. A relative unknown before the season, Manziel is post-

ing consistently terrific performances that are starting to generate whispers of Heisman Trophy consideration. He has certainly been the unquestioned star for the upstart Aggies. “He has a green light to make plays, some improvised, some called,” Texas A&M first-year coach Kevin Sumlin said. He made those plays in bunches against the Bulldogs. Maybe the most impressive was a 37-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter that pushed the Aggies’ lead to 21-0. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Manziel rolled right, and when he didn’t see an open receiver, weaved around multiple

Mississippi State defenders on his way to the end zone. Sumlin admitted the Aggies are still adjusting to their quarterback’s uncanny playmaking ability. It’s a good problem to have. “We’re lucky to have him,” running back Ben Malena said. “The play is never over. You’ve got to stay in the play and try to help him out any way you can.” Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) has won all five of its road games this season. Christine Michael ran for 50 yards and two touchdowns, and Ryan Swope caught nine passes for 121 yards. The Aggies’ quick-tempo offense ran 97 plays and gained 693 total yards. Mississippi State had just 310

yards. “That’s as bad of a performance as I think we’ve had here,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. Tyler Russell completed 19 of 30 passes for 212 yards, with one touchdown and one interception for Mississippi State (7-2, 3-2), which has lost two in a row. Mississippi State’s defense had been one of the best in the SEC this season – especially in the secondary – but was blitzed early and often by the Aggies’ unpredictable offense. Manziel completed mostly short passes in the first half, but hit on a few long ones. When the Bulldogs dropped too far back into pass coverage, the speedy freshman gained yards with his feet.

BIG 12 FOOTBALL | TCU 39, WEST VIRGINIA 38 (2OT)

TCU edges West Virginia in double OT MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – Despite a disappointing debut season in the Big 12, TCU is turning out to be pretty tough on the road. Corey Fuller caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Trevone Boykin threw to Josh Boyce for the 2-point conversion, lifting TCU to a 39-38 double overtime win over No. 23 West Virginia on Saturday night. In becoming bowl eligible, TCU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 3-1 on the road in the conference despite having a freshman-laden team.

1 ALABAMA 21, No. 5 LSU 21: T.J. Yeldon took a swing pass from A.J. McCarron and went 28 yards for a touchdown with 51 seconds remaining, giving top-ranked Alabama a stunning victory over No. 5 LSU. ■ No. 2 OREGON 62, No. 18 USC 51: Kenjon Barner rushed for a school-record 321 yards and five touchdowns, Marcus Mariota threw four TD passes for Oregon. ■ No. 4 NOTRE DAME 29, PITTSBURGH 26: Everett Golson scored on a quarterback sneak in the third overtime and threw two touchdown pass during Notre Dame’s fourth-quarter comeback. ■ No. 6 OHIO ST. 52, ILLINOIS 22: Carlos Hyde rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns, and Braxton Miller passed for two scores and ran for another. ■ No. 7 GEORGIA 37, MISSISSIPPI 10: Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi and move one win away from a spot in the SEC championship game. ■ No. 8 FLORIDA 14, MISSOURI 7: Mike Gillislee took a screen pass and went 45 yards for a touchdown, and Florida survived a scare to beat SEC newcomer Missouri. ■ No. 12 LOUISVILLE 45, TEMPLE 17: Teddy Bridgewater threw a career-high five touchdowns and Louisville rallied again to beat Temple. he Cardinals (9-0, 4-0 Big East) fell behind for the sixth straight game. ■ No. 14 OKLAHOMA 35, IOWA ST. 20: Landry Jones threw for 405 yards and a season-best four touchdowns and Oklahoma beat Iowa State to move coach Bob Stoops into a second-place tie with Bud Wilkinson on the Sooners’ career win list. Stoops got his 145th win and is 12 shy of tying Barry Switzer for most in school history. ■ No. 15 STANFORD 48, COLORADO 0: Kevin Hogan ignited Stanford’s sputtering offense and helped the Cardinal hand Colorado its first shutout at home in 26 years. ■ No. 21 NEBRASKA 28, MICHIGAN ST. 24: Taylor Martinez threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Jamal Turner with 6 seconds left. COMPILED FROM ADVOCATE WIRE REPORTS

“We have to just keep growing up and getting better,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “Anytime you go on the road and get a win, it’s a positive.” It left fellow Big 12 newcomer West Virginia (5-3, 2-3) with a three-game losing streak for the first time since the end of the 2004 season and two straight losses at home for the first time since 2003. The mood in the West Virginia locker room afterward was subdued – “a lot of disappointment,” said West Virginia linebacker Isaiah Bruce.

K-State QB Collin Klein leaves with injury

TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin is tripped up by West Virginia’s Cecil Level during Saturday’s game.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Quarterback Collin Klein has left third-ranked Kansas State’s game against Oklahoma State in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury. Klein scored his 50th career rushing touchdown on a quarterback sneak early in the third quarter to give the Wildcats a 38-17 lead. The Heisman frontrunner didn’t come out for their next offensive series and was seen talking to a trainer on the sideline.

ON SPORTS: Blaschke has passed for 868 yards CONTINUED FROM C1 week honors. Blaschke has rushed for a team-leading 603 yards and 10 touchdowns and passed for 868 yards and seven touchdowns. “I’m a lot more confident than last year,” Blaschke said. “I was at defensive back for the first four days of practice last year so I missed the basics of the offense. I understand the concepts of the offense a whole lot better.” Blaschke played quarterback his senior season at Cuero and led the Gobblers to the 2010 Class 3A, Division I area playoffs. He originally planned to play defensive back at Trinity before changing his mind in the first week of practice. “I was a defensive back for maybe 3-4 days,” he said. “I moved over a became the second-string quarterback. I just felt more comfortable at quarterback and wanted to do it again.” Blaschke saw limited action last season getting eight carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns, and completing 9 of his 12 passes for 100

yards and two touchdowns. He was used mostly as a running quarterback earlier this season and the team installed a Wildcat package for Blaschke, which it calls the Gobbler package for obvious reasons. Blaschke’s playing time and production increased after strarter Nyk McKissic suffered a concussion. Blaschke’s progress has come as no surprise to Jerheme Urban. Urban, a Stroman graduate, played wide receiver at Trinity before going on to the NFL and is currently coaching the team’s defensive backs. “He’s one of those super competitive athletes, but you look at him and he’s like the calm before the storm,” Urban said. “He has a great impact on the game. He’s the type of athlete where you have to have two guys account for him. He opens up lanes for the running game and he can also throw the ball. He’s extremely fast and very elusive.” Blaschke was at his best in last week’s 35-24 win over Millsaps, which gave the

Tigers their second consecutive league title. Blaschke completed 14 of 19 passes for 188 yards and two touchdowns and rushed 23 times for 221 yards and two touchdowns. Blaschke became the first Trinity player since Shiner graduate Chris Baer in 2009 to run for more than 200 yards in a game and set a school record for rushing yards by a quarterback. “I thought Mason played an exceptional game both from his decision making to his ability to make plays with his athleticism,” said Trinity head coach Steve Mohr. “It appears the Tigers have their own version of ‘Johnny Football.’” Blaschke had another outstanding performance in Saturday’s 48-7 road win over Sewanee. Blaschke passed for 163 yards and one touchdown and rushed for 56 yards and two touchdowns. Blaschke is looking forward to his next two years at Trinity and for what’s in store after he graduates. “It shows your love of the game and you’re thinking

Mason Blaschke dives forward during a play earlier this season.

URBAN STILL WAITING

Jerheme Urban is training from 8 to 10 hours a week in case a NFL team needs his services. Urban played nine seasons in the NFL as a wide receiver and special teams player and is currently working as an assistant coach at Trinity, his alma mater. Urban said he will wait until the end of the season before deciding whether to file his Urban retirement papers with the league. Urban plans to hold his annual football camp in Victoria this summer.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Ash comes up big as Texas upends Tech Longhorns put together strong effort in upset of Red Raiders

LUBBOCK (AP) – Texas coach Mack Brown finally got a glimpse of the team he’s looked for all season. “I thought it was the best team win we’ve had all year,” Brown said. “Defense played so hard and so well and came up with the blocked field goal at the end.” David Ash threw for three touchdowns and 264 yards to lead Texas to its fourth road win of the season, 31-22 against No. 20 Texas Tech on Saturday. “I’m really proud of David today,” Brown said. “He came back and played a really good football game. No turnovers on offense, again.” Mike Davis had a career-high 165 yards and a career-best two touchdowns on four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the Longhorns (7-2, 4-2 Big 12). It was the third

straight win for the Longhorns and keeps them alive in the Big 12 race. “’’If you look back Mike makes the big catch at Oklahoma State, Kansas last week and then he makes the big catch today,” Brown said. “I think we’re seeing him do this week-in and week-out.” Ash agreed with Brown on the team coming together in the win. “Each win gets us in a better bowl and really, the goal is ’every week get better,’” he said. “If we keep improving we’ve got a chance.” Seth Doege completed 26 of 44 passes for 329 yards for one touchdown for Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3). Freshman Johnathan Gray got his second straight 100-yard rushing game for Texas, with 106 yards on 20 carries. Penalties hurt Texas Tech, including a touchdown being called back in the fourth quarter for holding. Once in the red zone, the Red Raiders had trouble getting touchdowns. They settled for field goals tries four times. Texas Tech coach Tommy

Texas offensive tackle Josh Cochran lifts wide receiver Jaxon Shipley after a touchdown against Texas Tech during Saturday’s game. Tuberville said the Red Raiders got in their own way. “We shot ourselves in the foot,” he said. “Made too many mistakes against a good football team. The last two weeks we’ve done that, so hopefully we can correct that.” Ash found Davis twice for big gains in the first half, once on a deep post route for a 54-yard gain to the Red Raiders 2. Joe Bergeron scored on the next play from

2 yards out to put the Longhorns up 14-7. On the first play of the ’Horns next possession, Ash hit Davis again on a deep route over the middle and he ran it in for a 75-yard touchdown to put Texas up 21-10. Texas Tech was down three defensive backs to injuries – Cornelius Douglas, Tre’ Porter and Jarvis Phillips – and Ash didn’t let up on their backups. He completed 11 of 19 passes.

Baylor (4-4, 1-4) led 20-14 at halftime before pulling away in the second half to snap a four-game losing streak. Florence was 26 of 42 and surpassed 3,000 yards passing for the season. The senior had touchdown passes of 11, 68 and 40 yards. James Sims had 126 rushing yards for Kansas (1-8, 0-6), which lost its eighth in a row and 18th straight Big 12 game. ■ RICE 49, TULANE 47: Luke Turner put Rice ahead to stay with his first of two fourth-quarter touchdowns and the Owls outlasted Tulane. The

TECH 51, UTSA 27: Eric Soza hit Cole Hicks for a 14-yard touchdown 3 minutes into the fourth quarter, UTSA trailed just 37-27. But Louisiana Tech (8-1, 3-0 WAC) converted a fake field goal into a touchdown on their next series and scored again with 14 seconds remaining to get some distance. ■ UTAH STATE 38, TEXAS STATE 7: Chuckie Keeton threw four touchdown passes and ran for another as Utah State only needed the first half to prove they were the bet-

ter team in a victory over visiting Texas State. ■ SAM HOUSTON STATE 70, SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA 0: The Bearkats (7-2, 5-1) had 405 yards rushing and set a record by scoring the most points in a Southland Conference game in a rout of Southeastern Louisiana. ■ EAST CAROLINA 48, HOUSTON 28: Houston’s David Piland threw 51 passes, completing only 22, including four for touchdowns in a loss to the Pirates. ■ ARKANSAS STATE 37, NORTH TEXAS 19: Derek Thompson had 316 yards passing for North Texas (3-6, 2-3) with a TD pass and a rushing TD.

After posting a career passing effort in last week’s win over Memphis, SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert was sacked three times and never got into a rhythm. COMPILED FROM ADVOCATE WIRE REPORTS

Yorktown beats CC London to reach regional quarterfinals Kitty Kats almost let one game get away, but still step up to advance BY WILL BROWN

WBROWN@VICAD.COM

SINTON — The match was purring along, until the team across the net turned its inexperience into ignorance toward the situation. Yorktown’s volleyball team refocused in time to put away a youthful London team 25-12, 25-20, 25-18 on Saturday afternoon. Yorktown (24-9) moves on to the regional quarterfinals where they will play San Perlita, the District 32-1A champions, at a time, date and place to be determined. Sam Niemeier led the Kitty Kats with 11 kills while freshman middle blocker Emily Gwosdz added another seven kills. Setter Victoria Pena provided 24 assists. Senior Ashlynn Sievers added six kills. However, her bigger role on the day may have been communicating with her teammates during points and keeping their spirits up as London threatened in the final two games. “All year, we struggled with coming out strong,” said Yorktown coach Deirdre

Alexander. “We were really excited about the first game because usually we don’t come out that strong. “When we went into the second game, maybe we got a little relaxed, and really we struggled with serve-receive. They had hard serves and we put some of our younger kids in for a second.” Yorktown never trailed in the first game. The Kitty Kats held a 16-9 lead at one stretch of the second game, before the Lady Pirates won nine straight points to stun the District 30-1A champions. London took a brief 17-16 lead when it hit a free ball to the back row of the Yorktown defense. The Kitty Kats thought the ball would go long — it didn’t. Yorktown quickly retook the lead on a Niemeier kill and a Sievers ace. The Kitty Kats won the final five points of Game 2 with strong serving, pinpoint offense and an occasional error from the Lady Pirates. London (16-13) did not have upperclassmen. Of the nine girls who took the court Saturday, seven were freshmen. Allie Orta and Mary Kate Williams were sophomores. Head coach Melinda Horton said the school is continuing to grow and the Lady Pirates will have a junior class next year,

Lamar Consolidated hands Bay City ninth loss of season ADVOCATE STAFF REPORT

ROSENBERG – Keshon Leonard rushed for 231 yards and four touchdowns to lead Lamar Consolidated to a 65-12 District 23-4A win over Bay City on Saturday at Traylor Stadium. Leonard scored on runs of 63, 47, 25 and 34 yards and the Mustangs improved to 5-4 and 3-2 in district. The Blackcats (0-9. 0-5) scored on a 2-yard run by Zavian Gartica and a 20-yard fumble return by Jason Budaus.

before graduating its first seniors in 2015. Horton compared the playoffs to chocolate. Not a box of chocolate, but the sweet stuff itself. “I’m hoping we can carry this far. I think those are some of the things we are harping on with the kids,” Horton said. “You tasted it. You liked it. Now, get hungry for it. Once you’ve had chocolate you don’t want to let it go. It’s kind of the same concept. We’ve had a taste and we want more. They know understand what’s out there.” Yorktown has made the playoffs for 19 straight years, but the Kitty Kats did not have a decided advantage in experience. Sievers and Caitlin Seifert — 1 kill, 1 block — are the only seniors on the team. Rather than relying on experience to propel them to the regional quarterfinals for the eighth straight year, the Kitty Kats went back to basics. “Once we called a time out and told the kids ‘the reason you got here was because of fundamentals and being disciplined enough to do it correctly,’” Alexander said about the second game. “We reminded them not to freak out and have nerves. We reminded them to play how you always play.”

The Lady Lions (39-6) won the first two games at the Blossom Athletic Center. St. Joseph (34-6) was able to keep pace with Grace Prep in the first game, trailing by just one point. However, Grace Prep finished the first game on an 11-3 run. “They had two very strong hitters, and we tried to contain them,” Griffin said. “Our defense wasn’t as strong as it was yesterday.” Game 2 was dominated by the Lady Lions, who took a 14-4 lead that was built off of several St. Joseph errors. The second game would come to an end when Boles hit the ball out of bounds. “Just thinking about how far we’ve come and what we’ve been through, we weren’t going to give it up in three games,” Boles said. “We were going to fight back.” Needing a win in Game 3 to keep their season, and championship, hopes alive, the Lady Flyers struggled to take the lead despite being behind by just a few points. They would take their first lead since the first point of game two when a block attempt by Grace Prep was tipped out of bounds. With a slim 20-19 lead, the Lady Flyers and Lions traded points until St. Joseph pulled ahead for a 25-23 game three win. “It was a huge battle,” Ybarbo said. “I just wish we would’ve fought a little more.” Grace Prep pulled away to start the fourth game with a 5-2 lead, but St. Joseph never gave up and fought back to tie the game at 12-12. One point later the Lady Flyers took the lead. Unfortunately, it would be the last time they'd hold the lead. “We really wanted to win it, but everything happens for a reason,” senior Analise Ybarbo said. “I’m just glad we made it this far and with a team I love. I couldn’t happier.” Kurtz led the Lady Flyers six kills and six digs. Natalie Bales also had six digs. Four members of the St. Joseph squad were named to the all-tournament team. They are: Boles, Kurtz, Bales and Peyton Cuellar.
