Wildcats missed opportunity against Beavers, 14-37

The Yorktown Wildcats probably lost by the best team in the district against themselves after losing to Falls City last Friday night at home 14-37.

There were several momentum shifts in the first half. Falls City had fist possession of the ball. Working the pass and run they scored in two and a half minutes and the 2-point conversion was good, 0-8.

Yorktown quickly answered back on kick-off return when Cy Strieber scored. The 2-point conversion was denied and the Wildcats trailed by two, 6-8.

Falls City passed their way back into the end zone and the 2-point conversion was good for a 6-16 lead.

Falls City had another possession at their own 9-yard line. At first snap Ysidro Garza sacked the quarterback in the end zone for a Wildcat safety. Score 8-16.

Gobblers display strong defense against Sinton

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Losing your starting quarterback early in a game against the top team in district on the road does not usually equate to a competitive game. On top of that, the backup was already out with an injury from earlier in the season. The Gobbler defense stepped up, though, before Sinton scored a second touchdown in the final 30 seconds, edging Cuero, 14-10.
“Our defense played great,” head coach Travis Reeve said.
 
Sinton scored on their opening possession of the game following an errant snap for the Gobblers on a punt attempt early in the game. Cuero’s defense would keep the Sinton Pirates offense, whose coordinator is former Cuero coach Rick Owens, off the board until their final drive of the game.
 
An Isaiah Mungia field goal cut the Pirates lead in half in the second quarter, 6-3.

Nordheim Pirates boy's CC advance to regionals

The Nordheim ISD cross country teams ran at the District 32 cross country meet in Tilden on Oct. 15. The boy’s varsity team was most surprising.

Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “We almost had a team go to regionals, but you have to have five for a team.”

Eli Julian, Daniel Villarreal, Braden Villarreal and William Anderson finished in the top five with Eli finishing first.

Coach Williams said, “All the guys ran a personal best. The course was really easy compared to the other ones we ran at. There were no hills or anything like that. They all ran really well and that was good.”

Julian ran a 15:11 three mile, two minutes 50 seconds ahead of second place runner. D. Villarreal ran third, 18:19; B. Villarreal ran 4th, 18:35; Anderson ran 5th, 18:47.

Each one will run at regionals.

Powderpuff football game held at Gobbler Stadium

By Colton Oglesby
Cuero High School senior
 
Parents, friends, and Cuero students piled into Gobbler Stadium Friday evening, Oct. 16. They were not there for the usual Friday night lights but the high school's Powderpuff flag football game. Roles were reversed as male students wore cheer uniforms, attempting to recreate actual cheers, as girls warmed up on the turf, clad in old uniforms. This tradition isn't new but is only the tenth installment since 2005 after being banned by administration decades ago because of the girls becoming too physical during the games.

Starke Park in Seguin was the site of the 2015 district meet for Cuero High School and district 26. Senior Jocee Bennett of Cuero placed third in the two mile race and will advance to the regional meet Oct. 26 in Corpus Christi.
 
Cuero cross country coach, Roberto Granados, was pleased with the all-around effort of his team at the district meet.
 
“This year our team was very young and inexperienced, but the runners ran great,” Granados said. “The varsity girls placed fifth with Jocee Bennett qualifying for regionals. It was a great season, and we can’t wait to see how Jocee performs at regionals. Job well done Gobblers.”
 
Bennett finished with a time of 12 minutes and 38 seconds. After the race, Bennett talked about what she enjoys most about cross country and what she felt like she improved most on during the season.

Sinton football preview

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Elex Martinez and the Cuero Gobblers will look for an important district victory on Friday night, when they head to Sinton to take on the undefeated pirates. Last season, Cuero lost 41-26 to the Pirates despite a heroic 270 yard rushing performance from D’Anthony Hopkins.
 
Hopkins’ younger brother, Zech, has carried the bulk of the goal-line work for the Gobblers this season, but it may come down to how he and Tyler Edwards play on the defensive side of the ball.
