Gobblers come up short

The Cuero Record
Despite finishing second in their district this season, Cuero Gobbler baseball were dealt a tough opening round playoff draw. The Boerne Greyhounds placed third in their strong district behind Canyon Lake and Wimberley, which set up a bi-district matchup with the Gobblers last weekend.
Runs were at a premium for Cuero, as they faced two talented starting pitchers in the series. The Gobblers were held scoreless in the opening loss, 5-0, before Boerne also took care of business in game two, 7-3.
Even after falling in the first round, senior Tyler Maroney recognized how much Cuero improved over the course of the season, specifically at the end of district.
“We could’ve easily folded being 0-3 in district, but we came back, got on a little win streak and tried to bring that energy and play to the first round,” Maroney said. “We had a tough draw. Boerne’s a good team. I could see them going really far. They played really good ball, and I thought we did, too. Sometimes, it just has to come out like that, and that’s what happened.”
