Defending home court

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Effort was key to another home win to open the non-district schedule for the Lady Gobblers. They improved to 3-4 with a 45-32 win over Gonzales Nov. 21.

The weekend before, they took part in the Rice Tournament, going 1-4. Head coach Amy Crain was looking for her team to push themselves and each other following the long tournament.

“I felt that would help us offensively and create some turnovers,” Crain said. “I think they did that.”

Alyssa Rushing led Cuero with 12 points, but a total of seven players scored on the night.

“Everybody got involved in the game,” Crain stated. “We had everybody scoring. We had steals. I think we had over 30 boards. That’s a good sign. We had a few turnovers, but they were manageable.”

Sophomore Devon Williams was a force all night for the Lady Apaches in the post. The 6 foot 1 inch power forward posed many challenges for Cuero.

“We had to man up and really be aware of where she was and just keep her off the board as best as we could,” Crain said. “She got her share, but I thought overall we did a good job on her.”
