A physical game from start to finish, the Cuero Lady Gobblers held on down the stretch for a hard-fought 49-40 win over the Industrial Cobras in non-district. Senior Katie Crain led her team with 17 points.
Cuero built an lead early, but Industrial never let up, making for a tightly contested game.
“They had some good athletes,” head coach Amy Crain noted of Industrial. “They had some kids that took it to the hole. They made some adjustments at halftime and made us really play tougher defense.”
A double digit second half lead for Cuero dwindled to only two points in the final three minutes. The Lady Gobblers rose to the occasion.
“What I saw towards the end, when we gave up the lead and then it got to be close, we just responded to that,” coach Crain recalled. “We got tougher. We got some turnovers. We got some rebounds. We were able to do some good things on offense to extend our lead back.”
