Lady Yoe, Yoemen soccer setting standards for the future

On Thursday, the community of Cameron is going to get to see a first when both the Lady Yoe and Yoemen soccer teams host Liberty Hill in the bi-district round of the class 4A playoffs.

 

The Lady Yoe matchup with the Panthers at 5:30, with the Yoemen up next at 7:30.  

 

Regardless of the outcome against the number one seeds from 26-4A, no one can take away what both of these teams have accomplished this season, making the playoffs for the first time in program history.  

 

As her team wrapped up a practice heading up to the big match, Lady Yoe soccer coach Laura Dickson reflected on how far the program has come since its infant years.

Sports Shorts - 3/29

It’s not every day that you can see four different former Yoe athletes compete on the same field at the collegiate level. That happened over the weekend when four former Yoe baseball players suited up on the baseball diamond. Jordan Young and Jaime Dominguez of Hardin-Simmons and Michael Evan and Kylen Harrell of Concordia University matched up over the weekend. Concordia won the series 2-1, but in the process Young pitched to Evan and Harrell faced Dominguez. Pictured from left, Jordan Young, Michael Evan, Jaime Dominguez and Kylen Harrell.

Yoemen clip Rockdale late, blanked by Academy

The first installment of the Cameron and Rockdale baseball game went down to the wire as the Yoemen got a clutch late hit by Rick Fuentes to escape with a 6-4 win. 

With the bases and loaded and two outs in the top of the seventh, Fuentes drove the first pitch he saw past the third baseman and into right field, bringing in what was the game-winning runs.

“A saw a fastball and they told us to hunt the fastball,” Fuentes said.  “I finally got the chance and I was able to execute.”

“It is good to see some guys coming up with runners on base and coming through in the clutch,” added Yoe coach Hector Delgadillo. Rick came through when we needed him to.”

For the second game in a row, Cameron got an excellent outing from their starting pitcher, as Alex Alonso went the distance with the 107-pitch performance.

Big inning costs Lady Yoe in loss to Rogers

Kenzie Wimmer continued her effort with the long ball, but it was not enough as the Lady Yoe fell to Rogers on Tuesday night, 12-2.  Wimmer hit a solo homer in the bottom of the first inning to put Cameron up 1-0, but Rogers used a big 5-run 4th and a 6-run 7th to pull away from the Lady Yoe.  

Cameron held the 1-0 lead until the third when clean-up batter Shelby Mitchell hit one over the center field fence to tie the game.  

Rogers sent 10 to the plate in the 4th to create separation at 6-1.  Wimmer would homer once again in the bottom of the 4th, but Cameron could not produce any other type of offense in the loss.  

Madison Brunson tossed 4.1 innings, giving up 8 hits, 4 runs and struck out 3 batters.  Alejandra Ibarra also pitched 2.2 innings and gave up 5 hits, 3 earned runs and walked 3.  

With the loss, Cameron drops to 2-4 in 20-3A.  Rogers, the number 13 team in the state, improves to 5-1.

Yoe picks up first 20-3A win

Spring break was not kind to the Yoemen, which went 0-2, including a loss to Lexington on Thursday, 10-5.  

Cameron’s offense had 11 hits but left the bases loaded on three occasions.  The defense was there with no errors, but Lexington pounded out 14 hits and scored in the first five innings to create a 10-3 lead which was too much to overcome.  

Lexington’s top of the order did most of the damage in the contest, and they got the scoring going in the first as a Meuth double, Justice single and Hess single plated one run to give the Eagles the early 1-0 lead.  

Collectively, the top four in the Lexington lineup totalled 10 of the 14 hits. 

Down 4-0 in the 2nd, Bryce Brashear got the Yoemen on the scoreboard by lining a single to the pitcher Hess, scoring Anthony Layne from third base.

Yoe advances to semifinals in Franklin, falls hard to Lions in district

Entering their final tournament of the season, Cameron was in need of a little confidence boost before the long stretch of 20-3A games. The Yoemen had gone winless in their own tournament and had fallen to Jarrell in the district opener.

 

In 2017, Cameron, which was ranked inside the top 25 at the time, managed to go undefeated in the Franklin tournament before having the championship versus number one Lago Vista called off in the fourth inning due to weather.

 

The Yoemen fell just one-short of matching that finish in 2018, advancing to the semifinals of the 32-team bracket before falling to #13 Salado in dramatic fashion, 9-8.

Both soccer team makes playoffs for first time in program history

The playoffs are the goal for every team once they begin district play. The Yoe and Lady Yoe soccer teams are going to get to experience just what that feel like, as both teams have advanced to the postseason for the first time in program history.

 

Despite falling to Gateway Prep on the road Friday, 3-0, the Lady Yoe simply needed Jarrell to lose to Salado, and they did. The Lady Yoe finished 25-4A with a 3-7 record and will advance as the fourth place team. Playoff details have not been released yet, but the bi-district round is not until March 29-31.

 

The boys also did not have much drama in advancing to the postseason. Cameron was off the final game due to Gateway Prep not having a boys team. The Yoemen finished 2-6 in 25-4A and will also be advancing as the fourth seed out of the district. Playoff details are still to be determined.
