Tigers too much for Wildcats

 

The rain, nor the delay of game, nor the loss drowned the spirits of the Yorktown Wildcats after losing to the Goliad Tigers 28-7 last Friday night in the tiger pen.
 
“They are a [big 2A] school who beat a small 1A team. I promise you, their time will come just like it happens every year when they play against their own,” said Coach Ty Robinson during their huddle after the game. “I am proud of the way you played tonight except for that last drive. We broke down. We need to improve on offense so I will see you Monday. We have work to do.”
 
The Wildcats won the toss and opted to kick-off first. 
 
Goliad put the first score.....

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.
