Only 13 minutes into the match with the Manor Mustangs, senior capt~ain Eli Guajardo found junior Manuel Di- ego for the first and only goal of the match, giving the Lobos a 1-0 lead and the third place title in the 2013 Rebel Cup. The decision to play on Tuesday night for the third-fourthplace See more Rebel Cup results, pg. 2B bracket game was made by Le- hman and Manor coaches during the Rebel Cup last weekend. Both teams had already played numerous games during the tourna- ment, and the Lehman-Manor match had already been on both schools' schedules. During the match Tuesday night, the Lobos faced pressure all night from the Manor offensive attack, but were able to hold on to the shutout thanks to the play of keepers Mikey Torres and Luis Cortes. The Lobos saw two of their own scoring chances squandered as well as Michael Diers just missed a shot late in the first half, and Guajardo could not capitalize on a breakaway late in the second half. Despite the Lobos' third place fin- ish, Lehman head coach lay Sansom ,was cautiously optimistic about his team's play on the night and over the weekend.

Jass finished with six points in the Rebels 49-35 loss. BY MOSES A. LEOS III The feeling of anticipation seemed pal- pable to many Hays High Rebel fans on Fri- day night. They knew the Rebel boys con- test with Alamo Heights was a tilt between the top two teams in District 27-4A, as both squads were undefeated in district play - Hays 3-0, Heights 4-0. However, Alamo Heights would take ad- vantage of the moment, seizing control and never trailing in the game. Led by junior center Ben Lammers' game high 22 points, the Mules overpowered Hays 49-35, hand- ing the Rebels their first district loss of the season. Alamo Heights had the upper hand early on, jumping out to a 9-2 lead within the first 7 minutes, eventually building a 12-6 lead into the 2nd quarter. It was the presence of Lammers that .S proved the problem for the Rebels. "Heights did a great job of getting (Lammers) the ball. Whenever you have a big man and you utilize him inside-out, it always creates problems for the defense," said Rebel Head Coach Dean McMullen. Assisting Lammers was senior forward Wes Miller, who finished with 14 points, along with sophomore guard Zach Ford's five point effort. On the opposite side, Hays' offense strug- gled to find their offensive rhythm, all due to Lammers' ability to grief Rebel shooters. "(Lammers) is very good at blocking shots and playing big around the goal. He was very disruptive tonight," McMullen said. Alamo Heights capped off the final 3 min- utes of the first half with an 11-5 run, taking a 28-19 halftime lead. The third quarter proved to be the Rebels' resurgence, as Hays fought to stay within See HAYS BOYS BASKETBALL, pg. 2B Lady Rebel soccer team wins Mustang STAFF REPORTS It was a banner weekend for the Lady Rebel soccer team, as they swept through the Marble Fails MustangWm- ter Cup, claiming the championship on Saturday. The team's road to the title was a domineering one, as they defeated Aus- tin Hyde Park 2-0, Austin McCallum 5-1 and Canyon Lake 1-0 to reach the championship game against Bandera. In the title game, both teams com- pleted regulation in a 0-0 tie, having to settle the match with a penalty kick shootout. With keeper Mallory Wdlis, whom stopped Ban- dera's final three attempts, the Lady Reb- els won the shootout 6-4, daiming the champion- ship. Lady Rebel Head Coach BrentHol- comb lauded the sensation- al efforts made by Willis, as well as Senior Goalkeeper Sarah Sell- strom, both of whom earned tournament Co-MVP hon- ors. "Their play was the aid of Junior Goal- "Mallory (Willis) was chosen by Sarah (Sell- strom) to handle the shootout. They both did a phe- nomenal job" -Brent Holoomb, Lady Rebel head soccer coach critical. Both keep- ers played excellent throughout the tournament. In the Championship Game, Mallory (W'fllis) was chosen by Sarah (SeUstrom) to handle the shoot- out. They both did a phenomenal job," stated Coach Holcomb Holcomb also praised the remark- able efforts of the defense, which al- lowed only one regulation goal in four tournament matches. "We have experienced, excellent ath- letes," added Holcomb, "We defend well as a team. That is really important. This was a huge effort throughout the tour- nament, especially against offensively minded opponents, such as Bandera in the Championship game." Moving forward, Hays will host the 2013 Lady Rebel Cup before beginning their march towards district play. "We need to keep good motivation. To learn from each other, play well as a team. We want to play well in the Rebel Cup. Ultimately, we believe that this team will play exceptionally well in dis- trict," Holcomb said. Due to a team dropping out of the toumament, the Lady Rebels will field two teams in the Lady Rebel Cup. Var- sity Team 1 begins play against Reagan on Thursday at 11 am in Shelton Sta- dium. They will play again at 5 pm on Thursday against Lehman at the Barton Middle School Soccer Field. Varsity Team 2 will play both of their Thursday games at Shelton Stadium. Game one will be against Akins at 9 am; Game two against Fredericksburg at3pm.
