    Default Yoakum and Goliad Updates

    Yoakum soundly defeated another rival in Gonzales last night, 33-14.

    Goliad spanked a solid George West club, 47-13.

    Now, Yoakum (2-1) faces another tough one in Needville, who played powerhouse Calallen to a 61-41 defeat last night. Both Yoakum and Goliad (3-0) square off the final district game. And, likely again in the playoff's. Neither better look past (3-0) Edna though.

    It's getting good!!!!!!

    Goliad will be tested by Rockport Fulton next week in Rockport. RF has a very stingy defense and has limited its opponents on the scoreboard very impressively so far early in this season. RF defeated Aransas Pass 33-16 to start the season, then lost to a very quality El Campo team 26-21. Last night RF lost to a good 5A Alice team 20-15. Looks to me like the common theme in these games is good defense for Rockport......limiting the scoring of their opponents. I'd say Goliad will be facing their toughest test of the season next week in Rockport. I would tend to put RF above those teams Goliad has played so far this season......Columbus, Refugio, and George West. The Tigers are very good......but they need to play some solid teams. The very next week they get Shiner at home......another good test before district play begins. Then their bye week off after Shiner.

    It's plausible to say that Rockport Fulton's strength is it's defense. It's also very plausible to say that Goliad's strength is its offense......the Tigers have so many weapons this season. The big question is can any team in Region IV 3A stop this Goliad Tiger offensive attack??? Maybe Yoakum and Edna can......maybe not. In football just like in some other sports.......the team that scores the most points wins.......regardless of how well a team plays defensively. Just so happens Goliad also has a pretty darn good defense too. Maybe not as good yet as it will be come playoff time......but their offense will do the damage each week just in case. RF is in 4A-D2 and nothing to sneeze at.......they can play some ball, for sure. This week we get to see how Goliad handles a step up in classification against the Pirates. Yoakum already defeated Cuero.......also a 4A-D2 school that would be favored against RF if they were to meet. Ima thinkin' Goliad will score at least 35 pts again this week against the Pirates.......and I don't see the Pirates being able to score that many against this year's Tigers defense. I' guess we'll find out this Friday night, Huh? The game is in Rockport. GRRRR.......Tear Em Up Tigers!!!!

    Goliad BIG here RE. 35-0. We all know in these parts how good they are. Deep in talent too. I see a shutout here honestly. Should be an exciting season for the Tigers. Congrats to Bobby and the TigerNation.

    Well it went kinda like I expected......Goliad defeated Rockport Fulton by a score of 20-8. RF showed up and has a good defense to keep them in ballgames......just like their previous games have shown. The Tigers just did not dominate on offense against this Pirates defense......it was a struggle. We also saw that despite all their weapons, it looks like Goliad has not quite harnessed all of their potential offensively. They have good lines on both sides of the ball and lots of talented skill players, but have not yet found that special gear to just step on the gas to get that offensive juggernaut cranking in full gear. It seems they keep getting stuck in third gear and may be having problems with the clutch.....I don't think they are releasing it fast enough. But there's still plenty of ball to be played to get more oil into those gears and work on a smoother clutch transition in high gear as the season progresses. Next week they get a very tough test against a very good Shiner Comanches team in Goliad. Both teams are undefeated at 4-0 and both teams have stingy defenses. On paper this one looks like a toss-up according to the stats......but I think Goliad has more horses in their engine. It should be a very close game and a goodun to watch. Maybe Goliad will rev up that engine a little more this week.

    Meanwhile......back at the ranch in East Bernard, those Brahmas were giving the Edna Cowboys all they could handle. It was one of those steer wrestling events and the Cowboys were having all kinds of trouble getting those Brahmas wrangled. They finally got the job done, but it took all the way to the 4th quarter to get the win 14-6. Both teams came into the corral undefeated and mean as heck, but in the end those Edna Cowboys came out still undefeated.

    Not too far up the road there was another fight going on in Yoakum. This one was between Bulldogs and Blue Jays if you can believe it! Sometimes Blue Jays can be pesky and downright aggressive......even to Bulldogs. This team of Blue Jays came from Needville and descended upon the turf of the Yoakum Bulldogs. They were making all kinds of noises and just being very annoying. Well those Yoakum Bulldogs weren't gonna just sit there......so they growled and chased down those Blue Jays all over Bulldog Stadium last night. Both teams came into this meeting at 2-1, and it was really something to watch. Bulldogs chasin' Blue Jays up and down that field, flags flying all over the place the whole game, and lots of scoring. Them Yoakum Bulldogs played a heckuva game and defended their turf like Champions......they scored in every quarter and won 42-21 against a high-flying offense from Needville. I guess them Blue Jays ain't gonna pick a fight with the Yoakum Bulldogs anymore......at least not on Bulldog turf, LOL.
