The Cuero Record
Despite two starters being injured and a late comeback attempt, the Cuero Lady Gobblers basketball team held on for a season-opening victory over the Industrial Cobras, 51-46 on Thursday night, Nov. 12.
“It’s always great to start off the season with the W,” coach Amy Crain said.
Cuero quickly jumped ahead to a 4-0 lead before Industrial scored nine of the next 11 points and would lead, 18-10, after the first quarter.
Crain said, “First game jitters, we started out a little slow, I was proud of the effort of the girls, then we got into a rhythm that second quarter.”
The three-pointer was alive early for the Cobras, taking them to their first quarter lead and allowing them to set up their full-court press which caused trouble for Cuero to get through at times.
