Nordheim dished two losses

 

The Nordheim Lady Pirates have lost their last two district games this past week against Pettus and Austwell-Tivoli.
 
Both games were played at home on Sept 30 (Pettus) and Oct. 3 (Austwell-Tivoli). Nordheim coach Randy Castillo  said, “[With Pettus] we just did not play ball like we needed to. We can’t [avoid] making mistakes if we cannot take care of the small stuff. We need to start out with confidence, ready to win and to compete.” 
 
With Austwell-Tivoli we had too many unforced errors. We started to get some momentum then Austwell made a great hustle play to [regain control of the ball].
 
Nordheim (6-8, 2-5 district) will play Yorktown (15-6, 7-0) at home at 5 p.m. on Oct. 7.

Lady Gobblers make back-to-back wins

 

The Lady Gobblers came face-to-face with their goal to get into playoffs on Sept. 30. That may have been a pivotal point for the rest of the season. 
 
The Cuero volleyball team played the Lady Bulldogs in Yoakum. Cuero was down by two (19-25, 16-25). One more loss and the Lady Gobblers may not see their goal come to fruition. Something had to change and Cuero volleyball coach Whitney Coles could not be the one to make that decision for the girls. 
 
She said, “We had to reach a point when one of them stepped up and got mad and kind of jumped on the others. It was so good for them to get a little fire underneath them.”
 
The Lady Gobblers came back on won the next three (25-16, 25-23, 15-9).

Gobblers hold off Columbus Cardinals

 

Spotting the Columbus Cardinals 20 points in the first half Friday night had the Cuero Gobbler fans on the edge of their seats. But in true Gobbler fashion, Cuero scored 28 points and held their hosts scoreless in the second half for the win.
 
That win gives Cuero a 4-1 season record. They will host Giddings Friday for the Gobbler homecoming.
 
The Cardinals showed they were serious jumping on Cuero with two first quarter touchdowns as a result of long drives. Columbus had a 14-0 lead as the second period opened.
