Gobblers earn district title, playoffs await

Defense wins championships is the old mantra which still holds true today. Cuero put up 34 points on the board against Wharton in their regular season finale, but more importantly kept the Tiger offense out of the end zone, as the Gobblers prepare for another playoff push. Wharton scored off a Gobbler fumble to open the game, but it was all Cuero from there on out. Cuero won the district title in 15-4A with the 34-7 victory. Not only did this group capture a district championship, but they went 10-0 in the regular season for the first time since 2009, a mark which is a testament to this Gobbler team in a stout district.

Lady Gobblers post two wins, reach postseason

Five Lady Gobbler volleyball players celebrated senior night on Tuesday, Oct. 25 with a dominating win over district-foe Pleasanton (25-12, 25-17, 25-17). The seniors played their final match at The Roost but not the final match of their high school volleyball careers, as they qualified for postseason play. “It’s huge,” head coach Whitney Coles said of her team’s performance. “We felt kinda like we let down a little bit when we went there [Pleasanton]. They’re a really scrappy team. They make some incredible plays on defense. They make you earn every point, and we concentrated on that from the moment we got home after the first time we played them. I think that the girls just had a great mindset going in. They mentally prepared for that and just really wanted the game badly.”

Outright district title on the line

One win separates Cuero from their first perfect regular season in seven years and an outright district championship: a date with the Wharton Tigers Friday night at Gobbler Stadium. The last time Gobbler football displayed an unbeaten regular season guys named Tyler Arndt, Andrew Thibodeaux and Logan Pickett, among many others, were taking the field. This season’s team was in elementary school during the 2009 season. Haden Haas and Caeveon Patton were fifth graders; Drew Riemen-Schneider and Bralen Taylor were fourth graders and Jordan Whittington, one of the top players in the area, was only in third grade.

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.”
