19-3A Volleyball: Lady Yoe lose barn burner to Rockdale

Making strides. That has been the goal for the Lady Yoe volleyball team for the last three years. In order for the program to get to where they want to be, which is in the playoff hunt, they know they will have to compete with some of the top dogs in 19-3A.

 

Heading into district play on Tuesday, there may have not been a tougher opponent than Rockdale, which entered the contest with an overall record of 22-9 and was the only team in the district to be included in the latest rankings, coming in at number 25.

 

It was not a win for Cameron, but it was as close as it could have been in what was a 18-16 loss in a winner-take-all fifth set.

 

“I thought the kids came out with the right mindset,” Cameron coach Kamol Nohe said. “We want to play the game and we want to compete but we just fell a bit short. We know we need to do a little more tweaking and move things around a bit to get there, but it’s exciting to seem them compete.”

Yoe looks to continue strong start at Gatesville

It’s no secret to anyone that Gatesville has traditionally given the Yoemen problems on the gridiron. Even when it appeared that Cameron was about to win back-to-back games over the Hornets in 2017, it all ended in a split second as a fumble went into and through the end zone, allowing the Hornets to escape from Yoe Field with a 31-29 win.

 

“Last year’s game was a heartbreaker,” said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear. “We had a lot of mistakes including a touchdown called back with two men in motion and then we fumble into the endzone. There were several games last year that were heartbreakers and Gatesville was one of them. I personally would like to get that bad taste out of my mouth and get the win.”

 

Gatesville now holds a 12 to 9 overall advantage in the all-time series, making them one of a very few programs to have a winning record versus the Yoemen.

Week 3 Football Outlooks

Cameron Yoe (1-0) Vs. Gatesville (1-1)

Perhaps the most tricky game on Cameron’s schedule is this road trip to Gatesville. Regardless of what kind of team the Hornets may have, they have traditionally given Cameron problems. With that said, I do believe this would be a year for the Yoemen to go on the road and pick up another win. Gatesville is far from the worst and they are a larger school, but they are lacking a bit in the speed category and I do believe that could play right into the hands of the Yoemen on Friday night. The main concern for me would be the fact that Gatesville does like to line up in quite a few different formations, so the Yoe defense will need to be disciplined. At the end of the day, Cameron’s defensive front is going to need to have a good game. If they can get the Hornets into second and third a long, this is going to be a good night.

Week 2 Football Outlooks

Cameron Yoe (1-0) Vs. Bye

I was pleased with the way the Yoemen opened the 2018 season on the road. Mexia is certainly a quality team and Cameron managed to maintain a two to three touchdown lead most of the night. There were more positives on the offensive end, where Cameron managed to stay balanced on the night with the run and the pass. If this team can grown from there on that side of the ball, there should be some big time numbers put up throughout the 2018 season. The defense had good and bad moments Tackling is still somewhat of an issue and there were multiple cases of broken coverages. But, as Coach Brashear noted after the game, those are things that are correctable and there is still are plenty of opportunities to show improvement before we get into district play. Cameron will be playing in Gatesville in two weeks and that game is always a challenge.

Lady Yoe cap off non-district with a win

Cameron wrapped up their non-district schedule on Tuesday evening from Yoe Gym with Marlin. The ladies will be heading into 19-3A action full of confidence after posting a dominating sweep: 25-2, 25-9, 25-22.

 

Cameron finishes non-district play with an overall record of 14-13 and will open district play on Friday in McGregor.

 

Marlin began the match with three consecutive errors before Carley Tucker slammed home a kill in the middle of the court to put Cameron up 4-0. Another quick passing error led to a timeout for the Lady Dogs, but that did not help the cause as Cameron’s lead grew to 10-0 before Marlin would finally get on the scoreboard.

 

Cameron ended up cruising to the first set win, 25-2.

Strong start: Yoe picks up quality win over Mexia, 49-34

A key ingredient to the success of past Yoemen football teams has been improvement week to week.  It’s been something that Yoe coach Tommy Brashear has spoken of multiple times in the early going, and it appears that his team is following through.  On Friday, the Yoemen opened their 2018 campaign with an impressive win on the road, taking down Mexia in a high-flying offensive battle, 49-34.

 

“I felt like we were a week better this week and that is our goal,” said Brashear.  “We got out of it pretty injury free. You want to improve but you also want to stay healthy and I thought we did that.  I’m very pleased with our first game out. The kids’ effort was great. We still made some mistakes on both sides of the ball, but we did a lot of good things, too.  There is a lot to build on.”

Are Yoe ready? - 2018 season begins Friday in Alvarado

The time for scrimmages has come and gone, and now we are ready for the start of the 2018 Texas high school football season. Many believe it’s the best time of the year, and the Yoemen have plans on making it a memorable run. Cameron will start that journey tomorrow night by taking on the Mexia Blackcats on the road at Alvarado.

 

The game was originally scheduled to be played in Mexia, but the new turf was not going to be ready in time. Switching home sites was not really an option for the Yoemen.

 

“Mexia called and said their field was not going to be ready,” said Yoe coach Tommy Brashear. “He called about switching home games or switching sites and I told him that I would want a neutral site. If I switched home games, that means I would have six at home this year and four at home next year.”

Yoe impresses in Madisonville

The Yoemen hit the road to close out their scrimmage schedule last Thursday in Madisonville. One of the main talking points after week one was to be a week better in week two, and after Thursday it would be hard to say that was not accomplished, as the Yoemen looked impressive on both sides of the ball in what was a five touchdown to zero advantage.

 

“I think they are a little young this year, but regardless I was looking to see if we were fixing our mistakes, and I feel like we did that tonight,” said Yoe coach Tommy Brashear. “I thought we did some good things in the run game and in the pass game as well. We ran routes better and read things better. I know we still made mistakes because I saw them live, but we will go to work to fix those.”
