The 8th Grade A Travis Football team lost a defensive struggle to the Cuero Gobblers 6-8 on Thursday Evening at Gobbler Stadium. Offensively, the Fiddlers struggled to move the ball against a tough gobbler defense for much of the first half, but QB Aaron Martinez and RB Antonio Hensley managed to put together a nice drive in the 2nd quarter and Martinez would score on a 5 yard TD run to put the Fiddlers up 6-0. The 2 point conversion was no good and the score would remain 6-0 fiddlers going into halftime. In the 2nd half the Fiddlers still struggled to move the ball and would turn it over on downs multiple times causing the defense to be wore down and give up a late score to make it an 8-6 Cuero win. Some defensive standouts who kept the fiddlers in the ball game till late in the 4th quarter included Defensive Linemen Damian Guzman and Robert Cordell, Linebackers Erik Lozano, Alex Luna, Eh Three Htoo, and David Perez, and Safety Calvin Navarro who had 2 key Interceptions in the game. The Fiddlers are now 0-1 on the season and will have a bye week next week. Come out and support our boys, GO FIDDLERS!
