Wildcats clip wings of Eagles

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View
 
The question: “Could the Wildcats defend a dominant passing team?” The answer was found after Yorktown defeated the Milano Eagles 38-12 for bi-district championship last Thursday at Giddings High School Stadium.
 
Yorktown kick off team started off quick stopping the kick off return receiver at their own 6-yard line. Milano, at 3 and 7 threw a big pass to the Yorktown 42-yard line. They followed with a double reverse for another 25 yards. The next play was a pass into the end zone intercepted by Damian Ramirez.
 
Ramirez said, “They always pass to #8 so I stayed close to him. When I caught the ball I tried to get some yards and get away from the safety zone as far as I could.”

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

Thirty-two district champions entered playoffs. Twenty-four of those teams made it to regional quarter finals. Of that number only 13 made it to regional semifinals. Yorktown is one of them after defeating Three Rivers 3-0 on Nov. 10 in Pleasanton.

Yorktown volleyball coach Deirdre Alexander said, “Making the regional tournament and being part of the sweet sixteen is always an honor and a goal we work toward. It's something special each time you make it this far.”

The Kitty Kats took Three Rivers nearly by storm 25-13, 25-20, 25-9.

“When I see 31-4 that says they are pretty good. One of those losses was against us. A lot can change since we played them last,” Alexander said. “Our girls went in like it was work. They were not fired up any different than with any of the games during district play. They came in to take care of business.”

Yorktown Wildcats take care of business defeating Louise 44-38

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

There was no hyped run entering on the Wildcats Stadium as the Wildcats walked arm-in-arms. It was all business and it was business they took care of defeating the Louise Hornets 44-38 finishing runner up in district.

Milam Eckhardt ran his best game of the season with 14 carries for 98 yards rushing. He said, “I followed my tackle Erin Krause. We worked on it at practice over and over again.”

But the most unique plays were not the rushing or the sweeps. Yorktown made three passes for three touchdowns, something the opponents have not seen all season. In fact it was something that this team has not done since 2013.

Yorktown quarterback Jayden Webb said, “We are not much of a passing team. I have been practicing hard working with Coach Threadgill. Nothing but practice and waiting for that opportunity to shine. When I got that chance I took it.”
