Bees upend Cameron in the fifth set

Heading into volleyball action on Tuesday, Cameron knew they could be competitive with Academy, which sat at a perfect 5-0 in 19-3A play entering the night. Cameron had previously taken Rockdale and Troy - which were second and third in the standings entering the night - to five-set thrillers. That trend continued as the Lady Yoe took a 2-1 set lead over the Lady Bees before dropping the final two sets in a tough, 3-2 loss.

 

Academy (6-0) took the opening set 25-15, but the Lady Yoe responded with a 25-15 win in the second and 25-22 win in the third. Academy won the fourth, 25-21, and then the fifth set, 15-6.

Week 5 Football Outlooks

“The Call”

Last week, Cameron played an exciting game with Giddings, which is top 10 in 4A DII. Unfortunately, the game was decided by a penalty called late in the game. On Giddings’ first field goal attempt late in the fourth, the kick had sailed wide left and it appeared the Yoemen had won the game. However, the umpire had different plans, throwing what was called a personal foul penalty for leaping over the line.

 

The rule: “ARTICLE 11. 11 b. It is a foul if a defensive player moves forward and tries to block a field goal or try by leaving his feet in an attempt to leap over the frame of the body of an opponent. It is not a foul if the player was aligned in a stationary position within one yard of the line of scrimmage when the ball was snapped.”

 

The player called for the foul was in a stationary position and was on the line of scrimmage at the snap of the ball.

Yoe hosts Giddings in big-time showdown

The Cameron Yoemen will finally get to play under the lights at Yoe Field this Friday night when Giddings travels to town. Home openers in Cameron are always special, but this game appears to have a little extra zing to it, as Cameron, which comes in ranked eighth in the latest Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Rankings, and Giddings, ranked sixth in the state in 4A division II, will be meeting up in what could be the top matchup in Central Texas for week four.

 

“It’s our home opener and of course we want to do well and it should be a really good game,” said Yoe coach Tommy Brashear. “We have been playing pretty well and they have obviously been playing really well as they are 3-0 already. They have beaten some pretty well-known programs. When you seem them on film you can tell that they are well-coached and are a physical football team.

 

Brashear remembers back to his playing days in the 90s when the two were in the same district.

Rain, Rain, Go Away: Yoemen use dry second-half conditions to roll over Gatesville

At the 9:14 mark of the first quarter fo Friday’s road tilt at Gatesville, the Yoemen, which at the time trailed 7-0,  were headed back to the locker room for what was the second rain delay of the contest.

 

To that point, the Hornets were controlling the time of possession and the weather conditions seemed to be playing in their favor.  However, as many Yoe fans could see from their cell phone radars while standing near the Gatesville concession stand during the delay, more favorable conditions were on the horizon.

 

45 minutes later both teams returned to the field with clearer skies and it was the Yoe offense that heated up, scoring 34 second half points en route to a 41-21 win.

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.
