Gonzales not prepared for Lady Gobblers' defense

There was very little Gonzales could do against a strong Lady Gobbler defense that led to a 58-20 victory.
 
Cuero coach Amy Crain said, “We felt like we were on our heals a bit during the first quarter. We talked about making the adjustment, at halftime, being more aggressive and winning more hustle plays. I asked the girls to really step up their defense and they did.” 
 
The team had 15 steals, 17 rebounds and caused 13 turnovers.
 
“We created more turnovers, we rebounded better in the second half and we were able to get our transition game and get those fast breaks,”  Crain said. “We believe that our defense can dictate how successful we are on offense.”

Gobblers win 5 games in a row

 

Coming under radar is the Cuero Gobblers as they win five in a row in district after defeating Gonzales at home 52-31.
 
Cuero led the first half 28-9. The Gobbler defense did not allow Gonzales many rebounds and forced them to shoot long preventing any attempt to get in the paint.
 
Cuero coach Clint Coles said, “We came out and wanted to push the pace. We have some guys that like to play fast and this was a game where that strategy works to our advantage. We wanted to emphasize that and we did a good job of that.”
