What is more surprising, D’Anthony Hopkins did not play for one and a half games and Tre Miles is on the injured list.

Cuero earns district win in Yoakum

 

It will be the game to compare to for years to come. The Cuero Gobblers and Yoakum Bulldogs played Oct. 10 at Bulldog Stadium.
 
Yoakum scored their first three touchdowns in the first quarter while Cuero lost the ball twice in turnovers just outside the red-zone and once punting from their own 28-yard line. Yoakum was clearly in the lead 21-0.
 
Jared Edwards (#3) said, “We needed to pick it up and play harder. We were told to come out and make a big play. It is a rivalry and I played harder than I normally do.”

Lady Gobblers lose at home to Navarro

 

Some games never go as planned. Then there are those that, no matter what is done, the outcome remains the same. That is what occurred on Oct. 7 when the Lady Gobblers played a district game against Navarro at home losing in three (13-25, 7-25, 20-25).
 
Cuero coach Whitney Coles said, “This is how we started the last two games. Twenty-five points may seem like a long game but it is not. I think we may have gotten comfortable that we can make big runs, so we just sit back a little bit. We are battling a mentality change right now instead of attacking from the beginning. That is something that needs to change immediately.”

Nordheim dished two losses

 

The Nordheim Lady Pirates have lost their last two district games this past week against Pettus and Austwell-Tivoli.
 
Both games were played at home on Sept 30 (Pettus) and Oct. 3 (Austwell-Tivoli). Nordheim coach Randy Castillo  said, “[With Pettus] we just did not play ball like we needed to. We can’t [avoid] making mistakes if we cannot take care of the small stuff. We need to start out with confidence, ready to win and to compete.” 
 
With Austwell-Tivoli we had too many unforced errors. We started to get some momentum then Austwell made a great hustle play to [regain control of the ball].
 
Nordheim (6-8, 2-5 district) will play Yorktown (15-6, 7-0) at home at 5 p.m. on Oct. 7.

Lady Gobblers make back-to-back wins

 

The Lady Gobblers came face-to-face with their goal to get into playoffs on Sept. 30. That may have been a pivotal point for the rest of the season. 
 
The Cuero volleyball team played the Lady Bulldogs in Yoakum. Cuero was down by two (19-25, 16-25). One more loss and the Lady Gobblers may not see their goal come to fruition. Something had to change and Cuero volleyball coach Whitney Coles could not be the one to make that decision for the girls. 
 
She said, “We had to reach a point when one of them stepped up and got mad and kind of jumped on the others. It was so good for them to get a little fire underneath them.”
 
The Lady Gobblers came back on won the next three (25-16, 25-23, 15-9).
