Lady Yoe lose gritty battles to Lexington, Rogers

Lexington

With 6 minutes left in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game with Lexington, Cameron had a lead of 32-29 after buckets from Marquazia Workman, Lauryn Leftwich and NaQuiria Gibbons. It was Cameron’s biggest lead of the game, but it could not hold up as the Lady Eagles came back and snuck out of Yoe Gym with a 40-35 win.

 

It was not pretty throughout, as Cameron (1-4) shot just 8-44 from the floor and turned the ball over 21 times while Lexington (3-2) was 12-40 with 19 turnovers.

 

“I knew Lexington would put up a fight,” said Lady Yoe coach Corey Cunningham on what he expected entering the game. “They are always physical and I knew they would be tonight. We held them to 15 at half, and with our low output, it kept us right in the game. We preach defensive stops, but we just have to find a way to score.”

Too much pressure: Yoe defense overwhelms Lexington, Rogers

Before Friday’s game with Lexington, first-year Yoe basketball coach Nick Burns said that he had located an old Yoe basketball shirt. That shirt read “Running Yoemen”. He showed that shirt to his team and said that was going to be their theme this season and that they were going to bring that mentality back to the program.

 

That was validated on Friday, as Cameron totally dominated Lexington from beginning to end in a 76-30 win. The point total was impressive for Cameron, and the defensive statistics told all as 43 turnovers were forced with the full-court press causing the Eagles problems all night.

 

“We talk about putting together a buzzer to buzzer game, and I think that is the first one of the year outside of Whitney,” said Burns. “I felt our defensive intensity was there, and we were going to score off of it. We did not let up and I told the boys that we have to learn to put our foot on the pedal and not let up. I think we did that tonight.”

An early look into the 2018 Yoe Football depth chart

In Cameron, it’s never too early to start preparing for a new football season. It’s a new year and 7-on-7 action will get going in about 4 months. Today, I want to look at what the Yoemen will have returning, what was lost, and what should be the strengths or weaknesses.

 

Offense

 

Quarterback - question mark

Just like a good portion of offenses, the quarterback position is the most important for this football team, and there will be uncertainty with regards to who is the signal caller heading into next season. The Yoemen are losing two-year starter Zack Andress to graduation. This past season, Andress thew for 2,452 yards, ran for 484 more, and accounted for 36 touchdowns.

Yoe can’t overcome slow first half

Winning on the road in district play is never an easy task. It’s also that much more difficult when you’re playing quality competition like Franklin, with whom the Yoemen were matched up with on Tuesday in 20-3A basketball action.

 

Cameron has been up and down in terms of their consistency in games, and in this one, it was another slow start, with only 20 points in the first two quarters and a 10-point halftime deficit. That advantage was trimmed down throughout the final two quarters, but the hill was just too much to climb this time in a 64-58 loss.

 

Cameron had a change of game plan in the second half, and it worked, but it didn’t translate into a win this time.

Ladies battle early, but fall hard in the end to Franklin

Cameron has traditionally had a rough go of it when they play Franklin, particularly on the road. Things really did not change much on Tuesday night, as the Lady Lions, who entered the game at 20-3 and the number 20 team in the state, cruised to a 67-27 win over the Lady Yoe.

 

Cameron’s (13-11/1-3) Corey Cunningham was pleased with the team’s effort early despite the lopsided score.

 

“Early in the game we were equally conditioned if you will,” said Cunningham. “We were staying right with them, and at the end of the first quarter it was a nine point difference. But, we were not closing well and we gave up some three-pointers. I thought it was a much closer quarter than the nine-point difference.”

State Football Championship Recap

Photo by Steve Young

 

If you were looking for compelling storylines, then you need not look further than this past week’s Texas High School Football state championships from AT&T Stadium in Arlington. From the first female to score points, to some of the most unbelievable finishes you could ever imagine, this year’s state games simply had a little bit of everything for fans of the game. Below is a recap some of those top moments.

 

Rockdale wins 2nd state championship in school history

It did not look good in the early going, but Rockdale erased what was a 21-point deficit to win their second title in school history, 45-29. The Tigers simply played about as bad as you could have expected in the opening quarter and change, as the defense gave up the big play while the offense could not get going and turned the ball over. That all translated to a 21-0 deficit early in the second quarter.
