Yorktown Kitty Kats still have a chance for third

The Yorktown Kitty Kats had an aggressive second half to tie up the game against Three Rivers at home on Feb. 3 but soon ran out of gas with two minutes remaining.

Yorktown Kitty Kat coach Bruno Mata said, “They turned up the intensity and we did not match it.’

Three Rivers coach LeeAnn Baker said, “Yorktown has a good team and we knew it would be a battle on their home court.”

Yorktown started behind 17-28 at the half.

Mata said, “We were standing around too much. We were stagnant and they were able to get the ball in the little cracks that we had.”

When the Kitty Kats returned from the locker room after the half, they were altogether a different team. Yorktown went into a full court press and outscored Three Rivers 15-5 and ending the third quarter 32-33.

“We needed to start moving our feet defensively and [we did],” Mata said

“We have been struggling to come out strong after half-time and it showed,” Baker said.

Gobblers 2nd in district after hosting La Vernia

 

The Cuero Gobblers nearly robbed La Vernia again for the win last Friday night but came up short 51-54.
 
The La Vernia Bears gave quite a showing in the first quarter shutting down the Gobblers 4-16.
 
Then the Gobblers came alive with Cuero scoring 16 points to La Vernia’s 17 ending the half 20-33. 
 
Returning for the second half Cuero could not get a single break. The basket rejected many of Cuero’s attempt to score with only 8-points to Cuero and 12-points to the Bears.
 
The Bear side of the stands were roaring but nothing equal to the Gobbler fans.

Lady Gobblers settle in 4th place after La Vernia game

 

La Vernia’s 33 rebounds was the determining factor for the Lady Gobbler’s loss last Friday night at home with a final score of 47-57. 
 
It was typical Lady Gobbler basketball with solid defense. They forced the Lady Bears to shoot outside with the quarter ending 8-12. Cuero struggled with some of their shots not dropping.
 
During the second quarter Cuero was not as aggressive under the basket on offense but La Vernia suffered as Cuero kept them off the paint and matching nearly point-for-point as the first half ended 19-25.

Kitty Kat coach pleased with performance against Falls City

It looked as if the Falls City Lady Beavers were going to walk all over the Yorktown Kitty Kats after the first quarter but the Kitty Kats showed the Lady Beavers that they too can dish it out during last Tuesday’s game at the Wildcat Gymnasium.

The Lady Beavers played a full court press all four quarters. The tempo was fast and fierce. After the first quarter the Kitty Kats were behind 4-19.

After the Kitty Kats acclimatized to their home court they dug in their heals and gave Falls City a taste of their own medicine. Playing a full court defense and snatching more rebounds than the Lady Beavers, the Kitty Kats were nearly point-for-point in the second quarter, 10-13 ending the half 14-32.

After the half the game became more physical. Both teams had their fair share of fouls 6-7. The Kats were not able to make any clean passes causing high turnovers. Falls City outscored and out-hustled the Kats 23-9.

Gobblers break record with 6 wins in a row

 

The Cuero Gobblers ended the three game winning streak of the Navarro Panthers and in turn broke the Cuero school record for the most consecutive district wins. The Gobblers are now 6-0 sitting in first place.
 
Cuero coach Clint Coles said, “I knew that we had a chance to do something special. You never really think [to go] undefeated through the first round. It really speaks for this group. The seniors said that they wanted to be the group to be remembered.”
 
It was the defense that started for both teams keeping the game scoreless. It was not until 5:31 on the clock in the first quarter when Navarro scored a 3-pointer. Cuero answered back immediately and the drive moved forward ending the first half with Cuero ahead by nine points, 27-18.
