Gobblers, Texans meet Friday in regional

A familiar playoff foe stands between the Gobblers and a consecutive trip to the 4A-Division II Region IV finals: the Wimberley Texans. Wimberley defeated Pearsall in the opening round before dispatching Sinton in the area round.

Cuero and Wimberley have not played since 2011 and have not met in the playoffs since 2010, but their post season bouts usually turn into impressive contests. In the eight times the teams have played since 1994, both teams have won four games. Wimberley has taken the last three, including two in 2010, one of which was the area playoff, 43-35.

Gobblers shutout Crystal City for Area championship

Cuero wasted no time putting points on the board in their area matchup with the Crystal City Javelinas. The Gobblers put 41 points on the board in the first half. Once again, though, it was defense leading the way, pitching the shutout in the 48-0 victory.

“It’s great,” head coach Travis Reeve noted in regards to the shutout. “Our kids really played well to shut out a playoff opponent is huge. [I’m] really proud of our kids.” In the past couple

Playoffs open with resounding victory

Making plays in every phase of the game seems to be the new norm for the Gobbler football team. The Cuero offense is becoming more balanced; defense is forcing turnovers and special teams scored another touchdowns. All this combined equaled a Gobbler win, 59-20, over the Raymondville Bearkats in the bi-district round of the 4A-Division II playoffs. “I thought we came out, really executed well offensively,” head coach Travis Reeve said. “I thought we were dominant for the most part in the first half. Defensively, I thought we took our foot off the gas a little bit towards the end of the second quarter. They had a nice drive and scored, but I thought we responded well in the second half, came back and finished it like we wanted to. Got a lot of kids in tonight. That’s always important. Those guys work really hard throughout the week. I was really glad to get a lot of our young guys in.”
