Cameron travels to Jarrell in a must-win situation

Losing to McGregor to open district play was concerning, but most felt that the Yoemen could still rebound and control their own destiny in the 10-3A race. That all disappeared when Cameron fell to Franklin in the final seconds of last week’s homecoming game to drop to 0-2. With regards to the playoffs, this now forces the Yoemen into a must-win situation tomorrow night on the road at Jarrell.

 

The Cougars - which sit at 0-6 overall and 0-2 in the district - have struggled even more than the Yoemen, and the schedule has also been somewhat light up to this point.

 

Jarrell’s 2017 results: Johnson City (L 37-0), Florence (L 29-15), Thorndale (L 31-0), Lexington (L 69-6), Academy (L 20-14) and Troy (60-0). The Cougars have been already been outscored by over 200 points in their six games.

Winning streak: Lady Yoe capture back-to-back wins

The 2017 season for the Lady Yoe has been all about constantly learning and improving on play as the season has progressed. This past week, it’s safe to say that was accomplished as Cameron took down Franklin in an exciting five sets from Yoe Gym, 25-20, 17-25, 24-26, 25-15, 15-9.

 

This victory does not come as surprise as the ladies nearly took the match when it was on Franklin’s home court the first time these two met.

 

“We were on the better end of the game this time,” said Cameron coach Kamol Nohe. “We were more prepared because we knew how they were going to play. We carried out our game plan and took advantage of their errors. Our kids our playing together as a team and that is important.”

 

The turning point in the match came in the fourth set when Cameron was down 2-1. In that set, the ladies trailed 7-8 before Darci Denio got to the service line and stayed there until it was a 20-9 advantage for the girls in maroon and grey.

Yoemen can't hold off Franklin's second half surge

Momentum swings are very common in football.  On Friday night the Cameron Yoemen held much of the momentum throughout the first half against the Franklin Lions, taking a 28-14 lead into the halftime break.  The tides shifted dramatically after the teams returned from the locker room with the Lions scoring 17 unanswered points, which was followed by a 29-yard touchdown pass with 6.7 seconds left to shock the Yoemen on homecoming, 38-34.  

 

Cameron (1-5/0-2) had broken Franklin's 17-point run late in the fourth quarter when quarterback Zack Andress capped off a 96-yard drive with a 16-yard touchdown pass to Zi'Zirrius Holt to put the home team back up, 34-31 with 1:03 remaining.  

 

That was before Franklin (4-2/2-0) went 64 yards in under a minute to take the game.  With only 13 seconds remaining and faced with a 4th and 9, the call was a pass over the top to Jared Pedraza, who had a step on defenders.

Lady Yoe drops matches to Lexington and Rogers

The Cameron Lady Yoe are in the midst of a rough patch in their season.  Continuing into 20-3A play last Friday, Cameron had lost three consecutive district matches without taking a set.  The ladies appear to still be in a bit of a funk, with losses to Lexington (0-3) on Friday and district leading Rogers on Tuesday (0-3) to extend the streak to 15 straight sets.  The ladies still have 6 more district matches to start something up and build momentum.

 

“We still have some games and we can compete and fight for a spot,” said Cameron coach Kamol Nohe.  “We just have to get the kids focused and ready to play.”

 

Cameron will host Franklin on Friday (4:30) before traveling to Hearne on Tuesday (5:00).

Yoe looks to break 4-game losing streak with Franklin

Losing streaks are not fun for any team to encounter. For a tradition rich program like Cameron Yoe, it’s that much tougher. Cameron has lost their past four ball games, with the most recent being the 10-3A district opener to McGregor. The last time Cameron lost four straight was way back in 2003. That season ended with a program worst 1-9 record.

 

Cameron will look to get back to their winning ways this Friday night as they host tradition rich Franklin from Yoe Field for homecoming. This is not only a huge game because of the names on the front of the jerseys, but will also have big playoff implications on the line, particularly for the Yoemen.

Wake-Up Call: Yoe drops 10-3A opener to McGregor

In their final three games of the non-district schedule, Cameron simply had too many mistakes to pull out wins.  That trend did not change on Friday night in McGregor as the Yoemen turned the ball over four times and could not score from the 1-yard line on three occasions in a 31-25 upset loss to open 10-3A play.  

 

“I feel like they wanted it more than us tonight,” said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear.  “They had the lead most of the night and that kept them up and we were never able to deflate it.”

 

Cameron (1-4, 0-1) outgained the Bulldogs in total yardage, 465 to 338, but it was the big, momentum swinging plays that proved to be the difference.    

 

That started early in the second quarter when Cameron had a second and goal from the one.  A quick pass from Yoe quarterback Zack Andress was intercepted by Tanner Ledesma and returned for an over 100-yard touchdown.

Week 5 Football Outlooks

Cameron Yoe (1-3) Vs. McGregor (2-2)

The Cameron Yoemen have now lost three straight games. The last time that occurred was back in 2011 when the Yoemen finished 6-4 and had an area round playoff finish. That team did struggle somewhat on the offensive side of the ball much like this year’s team has done throughout the early portion of the schedule. The key difference is that the 2011 team was very young, grooming a sophomore quarterback while playing multiple underclassmen at key positions. This team has veteran players with experience in the big games, so that leads me to believe a corner will soon be turned. A great time to start would be this Friday at McGregor for the 10-3A opener. I do believe the Bulldogs are actually down a notch from their 4-6 team from a year ago. I am going to go ahead and double up on my prediction from last week.

Josh’s Pick: Cameron Yoe by 21.

A new season begins at McGregor on Friday

The Cameron Yoemen look at the season in three different parts. The first part of that season - the pre-district schedule - is now over. The second part will begin this Friday night when the Yoemen travel over to McGregor for the 10-3A league opener.

 

Cameron finished non-district with a disappointing 1-3 record, but that is not changing any of the expectations for this year’s team.

 

“I know we are off to a 1-3 start and we do not accept losing as an option,” said Yoe head football coach Tommy Brashear. “We knew our pre-district was going to be tough. We obviously expected to win more games, but I feel like we have gotten better from playing tough competition and that should help us in the long run.”

 

McGregor finished their non-district with an even 2-2 mark. The Bulldogs have wins over Sunnyvale (15-7) and Marlin (23-17) while suffering defeats to Groesbeck (23-10) and Mart (43-22).
