Winning streak over Yoakum ends
By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
Turnovers and miscues proved costly for Cuero, as they suffered their first regular season loss since 2015. Yoakum mounted a 24-0 first half lead and held on to win 30-20, their first win over the Gobblers since their only playoff meeting in 2014.
After the loss in their 109th meeting with the cross-county rival, coach Travis Reeve made sure to quickly tell his players the need to learn from this defeat, something they haven’t had a chance to do the last two seasons.
“It’s real important,” Reeve said. “I told our kids at the end of the game. We don’t want to lose any games. At the same time, we haven’t had the chance to learn from a loss the last two years. Our only losses have been in the playoffs. That’s the reason why you play a non-district schedule, to learn. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to learn from a loss, but it’s an opportunity to see where we can get better and how we have to go about changing the outcome in future games.”
