Yorktown Wildcats take another loss

 

There was no question that the Wildcat defense learned from their last game about “wrapping up.” However, the Wildcat offense had a few issues of their own with  5 fumbles, 4 turnovers, and 2 penalties of unsportsmanlike-conduct. With this combination it ultimately cost Yorktown the game, 41-21 against the Kenedy Lions at Kenedy on Nov. 1. 
 
Kenedy won the toss and elected to receive the ball first. The lions had eight plays before they lost the ball in turnovers. With Yorktown’s first possession, quarterback Jacob Garcia passed to Doss Torrez for 15 yards. Torrez ran another 18 yards before fumbling the ball. Kenedy recovered and scored three plays later, 6-0.
 
The next two team possessions were lost to turnovers.

Two winners walk off the court

 

Two winning teams walked off the court on the evening of Oct. 29 when Nordheim Lady Pirates played Yorktown Kitty Kats in Yorktown.
 
Yorktown played with great intensity putting into practice what had been learned all season preparing for the playoffs and won easily in three games: 25-10, 25-5, 25-5.
 
For the Lady Pirates they certainly lacked ability as for many of them it was their first year playing. They lacked the achievement in terms of wins. But when it came to quality, this team excelled. They too put into practice what they had learned all season.
