Malakoff's overtime FG puts an end to Yoe's season, 37-34

When you get to the fourth round of the state football playoffs in Texas, you expect to see close, hard-fought ball games.  Malakoff and Cameron played one of the more memorable contests of the postseason in 2015, and Friday night's regional finale from Waco ISD Stadium was equally as thrilling. 

 

For the Yoe faithful, this one didn't turn out liked they would have liked as Malakoff's Everardo Garcia nailed a 30-yard field goal in overtime to end the Yoemen's playoff run.  

 

Malakoff (14-0) advances to play Yoakum (10-4) next week in the state semifinals.  Yoakum came back late to defeat Hallettsville, 27-23.  

 

In what was a back-and-forth affair all night long, four quarters was just not enough to decide who would win the region III title.  Cameron had their first crack at it in overtime, but failed to convert a first down and could not generate any points.

After a break from the Thanksgiving holidays, the Lady Yoe basketball team was back in action on Tuesday as they hosted Riesel. Cameron defeated Riesel earlier this season during tournament action, 55-24.

Much like in the first matchup, Cameron came out hot and overwhelmed the Lady Indians with pressure defense. NaQuiria Gibbons and Terryn Adams both scored eight points in the first as Cameron led 18-4.  

“It was our goal this game to apply the defensive pressure right away through the press, and it created offensive opportunities for us in the transition game which allowed us to extend that lead right away,” said Lady Yoe Coach Corey Cunningham.

Gibbons doubled here total in the second with 16 as Cameron took a commanding 30-10 advantage at the half.

The ladies coasted throughout the second half to finish off the win, 46-24. Gibbons finished with a team-high 22 points.

Yoemen, Tigers clash in quarterfinals

In last year's run to the state championship, Cameron had to defeat both Teague and Malakoff to get out of region III.  If the Yoemen will be playing in the state semifinals next week, they will once again have to accomplish that feat. 

 

In the regional round, Cameron defeated Teague while Malakoff got by Rockdale to setup the rematch. 

 

Last year's game is one that neither team will soon forget.  Malakoff appeared to be in total control of the area round matchup, building a 32-7 lead in the second quarter.  Cameron proceeded to go on a 38-12 run to stun the Tigers, 45-44. 

 

This year, the teams will be meeting in the state quarterfinal round.  Malakoff has dominated their way throughout the entire schedule, scoring 40 or more points in every game besides last week's win over Rockdale, 27-13.

Yoemen play big role in Bedlam showdown

The annual Bedlam football game between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Oklahoma Sooners will take place this Saturday in Norman.

 

For the second straight year, the rivalry will decide the Big 12 championship.  The Cowboys and Sooners are ranked inside of the top 10 in the college football rankings and the winner could have an outside shot at one of the four playoff spots. 

 

Playing a big role on each side will be two former Yoemen in Oklahoma receiver Dede Westbrook and Oklahoma State defensive end Tralund Webber.

 

Westbrook was a receiver for the Yoemen during the state championship run in 2010 while Webber helped Cameron win back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013.

 

Both players began their careers in Blinn, and were on the same roster for the Buccaneers in 2014.

Yoe defense dominates in regional win over Teague

With 3:32 left in the first quarter of Friday’s 3A regional semifinal game in Temple, it was Teague that broke through with the initial touchdown on a 36-yard pass from Antonio Heard to his brother Tyrese Heard.  

 

That would end up being the only time that points would go up on the visitors side of the scoreboard the entire night, as the Yoe defense dominated in a 23-6 win over the Lions. 

 

"Our coaches did a great job," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "We gave them some different looks and the game plan was to not let Heard beat us.  He still got some yards here and there, but overall I felt like we did a great job containing him tonight.  I can't say enough about our defensive game plan and our defensive effort."

 

Cameron (11-2) now advances to play Malakoff in the state quarterfinals while Teague finishes the season at 10-3.  The Yoemen are now 4-0 all-time versus Teague.
