A tale of two halves
By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
Effort was never in question during Cuero’s first loss of the season, 33-26, last Tuesday afternoon against the Schulenburg Shorthorns. Turnovers down the stretch and inconsistency in the half court offense proved costly, though, for the Lady Gobblers, as they head into the Thanksgiving break.
“We were a little flat and were lucky to have a lead at halftime, but I credit the girls’ effort and execution,” coach Amy Crain said after the game. Leading by one at halftime, Cuero looked to build on their lead, but Schulenburg turned defense into offense.
Senior Brynlee Hollas was their catalyst on both ends. “We just made too many turnovers,” Crain said. “We didn’t take care of the ball. Credit their defense, and what they were doing. We knew they were gonna come in and press us.”
A steady group with four seniors, Schulenburg proved to be steadier over the duration of 32 minutes. “They played very hard,” Crain said of the Shorthorns.
“It was a tale of two halves. We just didn’t take as good of care of the ball as we did in the first half.”
