By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

The Yorktown Wildcats nearly defeated Falls City at home court on Jan. 26 after a 31-28 first half but, poor passes in the third quarter and lack of offensive rebounds cost the Wildcats the game 49-61.

The game was very fast and aggressive on boths sides of the court. Yorktown broke loose early with a 17-point first period and extended their lead 30-23 with only 1:04 left of the clock in the second. With the number of fouls toward the end of the half, Falls City closed the gap ending the first half 31-28.

Coming out in the third period the Wildcats made too many turnovers with poor passes and scoring only 9-points. Total offensive rebounds added to seven which they desperately needed hitting only 44 percent of their field goals. Yet, the Yorktown defense (24 defensive rebounds, nine steals) played hard keeping them in the game ending the third 40-39.

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

The Yorktown Kitty Kats ended their losing streak after defeating Charlotte 39-30 at home court on Jan. 29.

It was a slow start with Yorktown falling behind in the first period 6-11. Yorktown coach Bruno Mata found a way to allow the girls to get a rest long enough to be able to get over the fatigue as hard as they played throughout the game.

Coach Mata said, “Our second string defense can hold their own long enough to give our first string a short rest. It seems to be working.”

During the second period the Kitty Kats put on the pressure to slow down Charlotte allowing only three points while taking the lead ending the first half 15-14.

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Claevon Patton knocked down a mid-range jumper to open the game, but it would be on the Gobbler lead on the night. Cuero hung tough throughout the first half, but Wimberley showed why they are one of the top teams in the state, pulling a way in the second half for an 80-35 win on Tuesday night, Jan. 26.
 
“Anytime when you get beat like we got beat, you can point to a lot of different areas,” coach Clint Coles said. “Wimberley is a team that’s in the top 10, top 15, depending on where you’re looking, so the first two quarters were encouraging.”
 
Cuero played with improved focus on both end of the court in the opening half, moving the ball well and making opportunities.

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Starting out strong was not a problem for the Lady Gobblers on Tuesday night, Jan. 26 against district-foe Wimberley. Cuero was in the game the entire first half, tied at 12 late in the second quarter and trailing by only eight at the half, but the Texans took control early in the second half, en route to a 44-28 win, moving Wimberley into sole possession of first in the district following Navarro’s loss to La Vernia the same night.
 
“We started out strong,” coach Amy Crain said. “I was pleased with our effort.”
 
Cuero played well early on both end of the court but continue to have difficulty sustaining the high-intensity over a full four quarters of play.
 
Crain said, “We were beating them on the boards. Coming out in the second half, they [Wimberley] got away in the third quarter.”
