Gobblers lose first district game

 

Sometimes it's just not your night.
 
That is how Cuero’s Gobblers must of felt Friday night when they hosted Sinton’s Pirates for a district contest.
 
It was a long night for Cuero that saw Sinton head home with a 41-26 win. Both schools are now 1-1 in district.
 
There is little doubt that the Pirates earned the win but three miscues by the Gobblers resulted in 20 of the visitor’s 41 points. And then there were the penalties. 
 
In most of the statistical columns, the Gobblers had a pretty good game. Better than Sinton’s. Just not in points.

Lady Gobblers closer to playoffs after winning Yoakum game

 

The Lady Gobblers are one game away from entering the playoffs after defeating school rival Yoakum in four games (19-25, 28-26, 25-15, 25-23).
 
Cuero coach Whitney Coles said, “We got comfortable after game three. I had to remind them that this was for playoffs and to finish.”
 
The timing could not be at a better time. Yoakum gave it all they had taking the lead 2-8 in game four. The Lady Gobblers had to dig deep to come back from the deficit. The game nearly went point-for-point.

Gobblers anticipate balanced attack in Friday's Sinton game

 

The Cuero Gobblers (6-1 overall, 1-0 district) will battle against the Sinton Pirates (5-3, 1-1) on Oct. 24 in the Gobbler Stadium. This will be their eighth time playing each other. Cuero is 6-1 against Sinton losing to the Pirates last year during regional semifinals 26-19. 
 
Sinton, with a roster of 48 players, will have a plethora of wide receivers (20) and several running backs (6). It may explain the choice of offense (spread offense) they use. While the spread offense is more of the style to rely on the passing game, Sinton will use it to spread out the opponent’s defense in order to open up their running game. 
 
Cuero head coach Travis Reeve is aware that the Pirates “do a good job of having a balanced attack.”

Lady Gobblers battle La Vernia

 

The Lady Gobblers walked on the court knowing that they had to defeat La Vernia on Oct. 17 at home if they were to have any opportunity to go to playoffs. After three intense battles Cuero won in three (25-17, 25-13, 25-20).
 
Cuero coach Whitney Coles said, “We had gone over again and again to keep our playoff options alive and I made sure that it was in the forefront of their minds. La Vernia is a good scrappy team. We had to attack from the very beginning. I was proud that they came out in the attack mode."
