Wildcats (6-6) working out the kinks on court

 

The Yorktown Wildcats played at home against Luling on Dec. 10 and lost 40-55.
 
Luling, though quick and more experienced started out taking the lead over the Wildcats 6-18 in the first period. Yorktown made some good plays but lacked in rebounds and were not assertive in their passes causing many turnovers.
 
At the beginning of the second period Jacob Garcia made back-to-back plays with a three pointer and then stealing the ball from Luling and added two more on the score board with a layup. However, the Wildcats made many poor passes and were nowhere under the basket for rebounds on both sides of the court. The period ended 15-34.

Kitty Kats get stung by Lady Hornets

 

The Kitty Kats certainly felt the sting of the Lady Hornets but that did not stop the Kats from playing to the end even in their loss of 25-66.
 
Yorktown girls basketball head coach Bruno Mata said, “I know that the score indicates one thing [but] I think we are very competitive especially the way we played today. We never gave up.”
 
The Kitty Kats played at home Dec. 3 against Louise who were quick to the tempo and were more skilled at handling the ball. 
 
“We were out-hustled and we were out of shape,” said coach Mata.

Cats take back win from the Louise Hornets

 

Unlike the first meeting against Louise losing 48-60 on Nov. 26, the Wildcats were smooth and fluid in their offense and nearly shut down the Hornets defense at home on Dec. 3 winning 60-25.
 
Yorktown boys head basketball coach Scott DeMarco attributed the change to a recent visit on Monday.
“The last thing these boys saw was [Skylar] Wilson dead on the floor,” said coach DeMarco. 
 
On Nov. 14, Skylar Wilson quit breathing during practice. Wilson was resuscitated by the aid of three coaches, Ty Robinson, Scott DeMarco, and Lane Shands. Wilson was eventually transported to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi where he underwent heart surgery.
