Gobblers cruise to dominating win

With a more than convincing win over the Ingleside Mustangs last week, 76-14, Cuero has guaranteed at the least a share of the District title but will be looking to claim the outright title with a win over Wharton. Defense and special teams continued to come through with big plays for the Gobblers, scoring three touchdowns on the night and blocking an extra point attempt.

“I thought starting off we executed exceptionally well on offense,” head coach Travis Reeve said. “Running game had a big run to start the game off, some big pass plays. I thought we did the things that we said we wanted to do offensively in terms of execution.”

Gobblers building championship momentum

Getting better each week is the mantra of this Gobbler football team. Cuero has taken that to heart throughout this football season, and last Friday’s game against the Sinton Pirates was no different. After Sinton took an early 7-0 lead, the Gobblers roared back, taking a 13-7 lead into the half before making big plays in the second half and pulling away for a 41-14 victory. The Gobblers are now 8-0 on the season and 3-0 in district.

“I just thought we came out and executed really well,” head coach Travis Reeve said in regards to the second half. “We talked about at halftime that the thing we just need to do was do what we were doing, just do it better. We’re playing a really good football team at their place. They were playing really good football, and we expected that. We just needed to do what we do better. I thought we just did that. In the second half, we didn’t really change a whole lot. We just executed better, and good things happened for us.”

Lady Gobblers handle Beeville

Midway through district play, the Cuero Lady Gobblers sit at 2-2. They defeated the Beeville Lady Trojans Oct. 4 in straight sets (25-13, 25-11, 25-8), putting together a complete performance before dropping a five-set match to the Pleasanton Eagles last Friday night. “We challenged the girls to really put together a full game,” head coach Whitney Coles stated following the Beeville match. “They haven’t done that yet. We fire on all cylinders in game one and just kind a get relaxed, and you can’t do that. From the very beginning, the atmosphere was fantastic, because it was junior high night. There was a lot of energy, and they fed off of that. They took care of business from the get go, and that’s what I’m most proud of.”
