Yoemen pick up two wins to set up primetime match up with Rogers

Heading into this past week's baseball action, the Yoemen knew they were in position for a playoff spot.  However, the sights are set much higher than that at this point as a district championship is well within reach.  With a 6-5 win over Franklin on Friday, followed up with a 8-5 win over Lexington at home on Monday, that mark was still well within reach with a showdown with district-leading Rogers on the horizon. 

 

Franklin (W 6-5)

It took nine innings, but at this point of the season wins are all that matter in Cameron's dramatic one-run win over the Lions.  The Yoemen, which trailed by a lone run entering the top of the seventh, scored one to tie it up before eventually winning the game in extra innings.

Lady Yoe continue to show improvement in loses 

Winning is not always the name of the game.  That could not be more true for the Lady Yoe softball team at this point of the season.  The playoffs are now out of reach, but there are still games to be played, which will be beneficial for a starting lineup that now contains no seniors. 

 

Franklin (L 9-3)

If you look at just the final score, you would have been deceived on how this game actually played out.  The Lady Yoe and Lady Lions were locked in an evenly matched contest that went into the 10th inning before Franklin took control.  

 

In the early going, whenever Franklin scored, Cameron had an answer.  Cameron tied the game up at 1 in the bottom of the first as leadoff hitter Karla Martinez hit one over the fence.  Franklin took a 3-1 lead in the third, but this time it was Kenzie Wimmer that hit a two-run home run to tie the game up for the second time.

Yoe competes in 44 Farms Relays

Last Thursday, the Yoemen and Lady Yoe competed in their largest and most electric track meet of the year from the 44 Farms Relays in Cameron.    

 

The 20 competing teams and larger stage amplified the the Yoemen's results, who collected 62 points while grabbing a second place finish.   

 

"Last week, I was still concerned we were not in track shape yet, but having this competition is almost like Texas Relays North," said Yoemen coach Chris Bennett.  "It gets us ready for district here in a couple of weeks.  We will polish up at Academy next week and hopefully have a good showing there."

 

Cameron's Davion Bynaum once again won the 100 meter dash with a time of 10.84.  Likewise, Jordan Wells continued his string of strong performances in the triple jump, with a gold distance of 42-9.25.

Yoe controls Jarrell on the road

In Cameron’s first matchup with Jarrell, it took a late two-run rally in the seventh inning to pull out a district opening win.

 

On Monday night at Georgetown East View, it appeared as if things were headed in the same direction. The game was tied 1-1 heading to the fifth before Cameron created separation with three runs, followed up by a trio of runs in the final frame in a 7-1 win.

 

“Our guys got some timely hits when we needed them,” said Yoe head baseball coach John Broussard following the win. “We still have to work hard at our two-strike approach and putting the ball in play, but overall I was pretty excited and proud for our guys to get the win on the road and end up at 6-1.”

Lady Yoe can’t finish off Jarrell at home

For a good portion of the 20-3A schedule, the Lady Yoe softball team has been in a majority of their games, but have not found a way to win them. On Tuesday night, it was defensive miscues that reared its ugly head in a 9-8 loss to the Lady Cougars of Jarrell.

 

Cameron nearly overcame errors with offensive production. In total, the ladies drew nine walks and hit two home runs. However, the five errors on defense was just too much to overcome on this night.

 

“A lot of if was inflicted to ourselves,” said Lady Yoe head coach Abe Vargas. “Yes, they put the ball in play, but we hurt ourselves defensively. We got behind and when you try to come back after being down like that, it’s tough. It doesn't matter who we’re playing.”
