Cuero and Vic. West set points record in week five

Cuero scored 72, West scored 82

Last week’s Texas high school football season was highlighted by the Cuero Gobblers and the Victoria West Warriors that scored the most points in its history.

Victoria West hosted the Corpus Christi King Mustangs Friday night and scored a staggering 72 points against a district opponent. This was West’s first win in the district and on season. According to West head coach, Courtney Boyce, the Warriors have hit the 60 point mark multiple times and have hit the 70 point mark once before Aug. 23. That was in 2015 when Victoria beat Mission Veterans Memorial high school 70-8 in the second round of playoffs. West will play C.C. Moody at Memorial Stadium Friday night.

The Cuero Gobblers made history against the Beeville Jones Trojans reaching a mark that no Gobbler team has reached before in the historic program’s history. The Gobblers dominated the Trojans 82-28. This is the first time Cuero went over the 80 point mark and it was the second highest combined score in the program’s history (110). This is the eleventh time Cuero has scored over 70 points. The Gobblers are on bye this week.
