Coming up short

The Cuero Record
Five games remain for Cuero following their 58-48 loss to Poteet, dropping the Gobblers to 0-3 in district. Cuero has been in each game throughout the first half of district, only losing by an average of just over five points per game.
“There was a little more physicality from us towards the end there,” head coach Kennon Dvorak noted. “Some guys were being a little more physical down low, something we didn’t see the first half. We’re still missing that aspect of fight. That’s something that’s going to bite us in the butt if we don’t find it soon.”
That extra gear is the only thing standing in the way of Cuero and playing a full game.
“That is the biggest thing,” Dvorak said. “That is the top of the list. At times, we just a little bit lack of heart. When we’re in games like this that are scrappy, it’s who wants it more. We’re missing that aspect.”
One of the bright spots on the night was the play of sophomore guard Caden Pakebusch. He scored nine points, including six during Cuero’s 23 point second quarter, and displayed impressive court vision.
