Gobblers win in Smithville

 

“It’s a good day to be a Gobbler.”
 
Not even a rain-soaked field could hold back a determined bunch of Gobblers Friday night in Smithville. A huge second quarter allowed Cuero to take a 38-0 win over the Tigers.
 
It was the Gobblers’ third consecutive win. The team has now posted 8 quarters with no points scored against them. 
The Gobblers’ top scoring back, D’Anthony Hopkins, did not play in this contest.
 
It took one possession for Cuero to size up their opponents and adjust to the wet field. But midway through the opening period, quarterback Jared Vernor launched a 65 yd. drive from the Cuero 35.

Gobblers to host Sandcrabs Friday

 

The Cuero Gobblers (3-0) will face the Calhoun Sandcrabs (1-2) on Sept. 19 in Gobbler Stadium. These two teams, currently 1-1 against one another, have not faced each other since 2011.
 
From 1999-2005 Calhoun did not know what a winning season looked like, that is until coach Richard Whitaker took over in 2005. After a 2-8 losing season and a realignment into a new district the Sandcrabs are 65-14. Last year Calhoun was a state semifinalist in the 4A DII finishing the season 13-2.
 
Calhoun will be top heavy with experience with 33 seniors, 11 juniors and six sophomores. Key contributers for the Sandcrabs may be #79 Jorge Rios, #7 J.C. Garcia, #8 Elijah Velasquez, #10 Taylor Lee, and #24 Skyler Blinka.

Lady Gobblers win game at Smithville

 

When Cuero volleyball coach Whitney Coles said that they will be ready for Smithville she was not kidding. The Lady Gobblers swept the Lady Tigers in three last Friday in Smithville. The scores were 25-16, 25-21, 25-14.
 
“We definitely cut down on the errors we made vs. Navarro but we still had some,” Coles said.
 
Normally the Lady Gobblers have a few up front to effectively make the blocks but in this game it was a barrier that limited the Lady Tigers.
 
“We concentrated a lot on blocking last week because we did not do a very good job of it last Tuesday,” Coles said. “As you can see, they really stepped it up and put up a huge wall.”

Wildcats take Kaufer by storm

 

If there is such a thing as ‘name it and claim it’ in football, the Yorktown Wildcats certainly made that statement in their playing from the beginning as they took the Riviera Kaufer Seahawks by storm 20-14.
 
Yorktown coach Ty Robinson said, “It was a game that we controlled from the beginning. We drove the ball and they never really stopped us offensively.”
 
And “drove” they did. The first half the Wildcats had 12 first downs for 139-yards rushing and 49-yards passing. However, on two separate occasions, Yorktown had turnovers inside the Seahawks 15-yard line after a forceful drive.
 
“We did not finish drives. We had end zone opportunities and we did not score,” Robinson said.

Kitty Kats take Nordheim Lady Pirates in three

 

The Yorktown Kitty Kats hosted their first district game against the Nordheim Lady Pirates on Sept. 12 and the energy was high as the Lady Pirates brought it and the Kitty Kats gave it back winning in three.
 
Yorktown coach Dierdre Alexander said, “They rattled our cage so we came to play ball.”
 
In game one Yorktown took a big lead 8-1 with Nordheim making a lot of mistakes. Nordheim coach Randy Castillo called for a time out to help Nordheim gain some composure. At the break Nordheim started to play solid defense. The score started to close in 14-8 with the Kitty Kats making their own share of mistakes. At 18-13 Yorktown’s Emily Gwosdz started to serve and found the hole. She served until the game was won at 25-13.
