Cuero’s playoff run comes to an end

The Gobblers will finish the season 13-2 as its season ends at the state semi-final

ROUND ROCK, Texas – The No. 7 Cuero Gobbler’s season has come to an end as they were defeated by the No. 5 China Spring Cougars, 34-9.

The Gobblers found themselves in a hole early on in the first quarter. On a fourth down and two, Cuero’s head coach Jack Alvarez declined to go for it and punt the ball. China Spring would take the advantage and drive the ball down the field cap off its first drive with a big touchdown run to make, 7-0.

Cuero’s offense would try to get something going but it was sputtered time and time again by penalties. The Cougars scored on the next possession to push it 10-0, in the first quarter. The Gobblers would respond with its own field goal to make it 10-3, in the second quarter.

China Spring would score on the next two drives while holding Cuero’s offense without a touchdown in the first half to make, 20-3 at halftime.

The Gobblers would try to respond in the third quarter, but Cuero quarterback Jerry Rossett throws the ball into the enemy’s territory and was picked off on the Gobbler’s first offensive play in the second half.

The Gobblers would finally score a touchdown in the fourth quarter, with a Rossett to Cuero wide receiver Eaxvier Durham for 68 yards.

The Gobblers will finish the season 13-2, while the China Spring Cougars head to the Class 4A-Division II state championship game next week in Arlington against  No. 2 Gilmer Buckeyes.
