The Cuero Record
Rivalry games are often noteworthy contests, especially when the two teams involved have met over 100 times. Energy separated Cuero and Yoakum at the outset of this year’s meeting with the Bulldogs bulldozing to a 26-0 halftime lead and never looking back.
Desite the large deficit and eventul defeat, 40-21, Cuero showed flashes of improvement in the second half which looks to prepare them for the rest of their non-district slate.
“We just didn’t start the way we needed to,” Cuero coach Travis Reeve said after the game.
“I thought we were a little bit passive at times. It’s something that we’ll learn from. Sometimes you have to learn lessons by experience. We’ll learn from this. We’re a better football team than what we showed tonight.”
Even with the slow early performance, Reeve made sure to point out that the Bulldogs were the superior team on the night. They outrushed Cuero 287 to 222 and totaled 187 yards passing compared to Cuero’s 89. “Give Yoakum credit,” he said.
“Yoakum played extremely well. They executed well. They deserved to win.”
