Gobblers rally inches short, Cuero opens with 23-22 loss

 

Wharton vs. Cuero has become a unique contest in the last five years. A total of only eight points has separated the winners and losers in the last five games.
 
This year’s match-up was no different.
 
The Gobblers battled back from a 16-9 deficit going into the final half needing an extra point kick to tie the game with 30 seconds left in the game.
 
That PAT try hit the goal post giving the Tigers a 23-22 win over the Gobblers in their first contest of the season.
Wharton jumped on the Gobblers early at Tiger Stadium turning their first drive into a 27-yd. field goal.

Wildcats win with last second TD over Indians

 

Quarterback Jacob Garcia did more than the running option in Friday’s night game against last year’s semi-finalists Hallettsville’s Sacred Heart. 
 
Without running back Logan Romans to carry the ball after an injury in the second quarter the team played as one as they snatched the game from Sacred Heart in the last two seconds of the game, winning 28-22.
 
No one could have predicted the out come of the game. In the opening kick-off Sacred Heart received the ball on their own 20-yard line and ran for an 80-yard touchdown. 
 
The Wildcats answered back with several runs. Romans was given the ball for a 3-yard touchdown. The Wildcats opted for the two point conversion with success. Yorktown took the lead 8-6.

Kitty Kats keep improving

The Kitty Kats are keeping up their guard as they enter their fifth week of preseason games. Aug. 27 the Kats traveled away to Karnes City to face off a dual against Karnes City and Natalia. Following are the results of the games:

 

Varsity vs Natalia
Game 1: Yorktown 25-Natalia 19
Game 2: Yorktown 25-Natalia 9
Game 3: Yorktown 25-Natalia 27
Game 4: Yorktown 25-Natalia 14
With the offense skill set of the Kitty Kat’s, they are able to score more points as a team rather than depend on one individual. Previously, Niemeier has been the primary scorer. This year the Kitty Kats have more members who are hitters giving them the advantage on the court using Niemeier as a distraction.
