Gobblers advance to area game Saturday

 

   If the Gobblers wanted to have a rematch with the team that took them out last year during the regional round they would have to step up their game. Coach Phil Schwarz has been trying to get them to maintain momentum since the beginning of the season. On May 3, the home game against Columbus was no different.
   After the bottom of the first inning Cuero took a huge lead 7-0. In the bottom of the second inning Cuero would score again extending their lead 8-0. 
   But as history has shown, Cuero  started to lose that momentum. At the top of the third inning Austin Johnson was put on short stop with Levi Jones to pitch.

Gobblers advance to bi-district

 

   In what could have been an undisputed first seed for the Cuero Gobblers with a win against La Grange,  Coach Phil Schwarz succeeded to take second seed after their 6-3 lost against the Leopards on April 25 at home. 
   “Its a good situation to continue playing to keep up the intensity rather than sit for two weeks,” Schwarz said. 
   With the loss, three teams ended up in a three-way tie; La Grange, Cuero, and Yoakum. Yoakum elected not to play to determine first, second and third seed therefore leaving Cuero’s hands tied.

Wildcats play last home game

 

   On April 12 the Wildcats played their last home game against Weimar and lost 14-1.
   The one run scored was a gutsy call by Coach Justin Havard. With runners on first and second base, Havard gave the sign for second base runner, Lane Strieber, to steal. At the wind-up Strieber made a dart for third base. Weimar’s catcher made the attempt to throw him out at third but it was high and Havard sent Strieber home.
   The Wildcats baseball team traveled to Shiner on April 9 for a loss, 15-0 in five innings.
   The Wildcats play Louise on Friday, April 19 in Louise.
