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.

Free throws lift Navarro over Lady Gobblers

 

There was no blood but plenty of sweat and tears as the Cuero Lady Gobblers take their third loss in district against the Navarro Lady Panthers.
 
“[Navarro] is a tough team who understands basketball and know what they need to do in a tight game,” Cuero coach Amy Crain said. 
 
Both teams were nearly scoreless in the first. With 2:14 on the clock the score was 4-4. Courtney Clark helped the Lady Gobblers take the lead 6-4. When Navarro regained the lead Martina Stavinoha scored a three pointer to put Cuero up 9-8. With 3.2 seconds on the clock Jaslynn Mathis threw from nearly half court to put three more points on the board ending the quarter 12-8.

Gonzales not prepared for Lady Gobblers' defense

There was very little Gonzales could do against a strong Lady Gobbler defense that led to a 58-20 victory.
 
Cuero coach Amy Crain said, “We felt like we were on our heals a bit during the first quarter. We talked about making the adjustment, at halftime, being more aggressive and winning more hustle plays. I asked the girls to really step up their defense and they did.” 
 
The team had 15 steals, 17 rebounds and caused 13 turnovers.
 
“We created more turnovers, we rebounded better in the second half and we were able to get our transition game and get those fast breaks,”  Crain said. “We believe that our defense can dictate how successful we are on offense.”

Gobblers win 5 games in a row

 

Coming under radar is the Cuero Gobblers as they win five in a row in district after defeating Gonzales at home 52-31.
 
Cuero led the first half 28-9. The Gobbler defense did not allow Gonzales many rebounds and forced them to shoot long preventing any attempt to get in the paint.
 
Cuero coach Clint Coles said, “We came out and wanted to push the pace. We have some guys that like to play fast and this was a game where that strategy works to our advantage. We wanted to emphasize that and we did a good job of that.”

Gobblers shoot past Hawks for Friday win

 

The Cuero Gobblers improves to a 12-5 overall, 3-0 district record after defeating the Canyon Lake Hawks 49-35 at home on Jan. 9.
 
The Gobblers wasted no time taking the lead in the first quarter 13-6. As the game progressed Cuero picked up the tempo adding another 17 points to the board ending the first half 30-17.
 
The third quarter was strange as both teams had low scores on the board. Cuero scored only two points from free throws. But it was not for the lack of trying, hitting only 13 percent of their shots.
