After the Wildcats offense had put on its best performance of 2018 against Grandview, Coach Jake Montalbano fully expected to see a repeat show against St. James last Friday night. It turned out to be anything but a curtain call for the CHS offense, which was held to just over 250 yards against the Tigers, after racking up more than 650 yards in the win over Grandview.
The Cuba Wildcats hosted the Grandview Eagles for a junior varsity football game at the Wildat Field of Pride on Monday, September 17. The Wildcats had a dominating offensive performance that day, beating the Eagles by a final score of 38-14.
The Cuba Lady Cats dropped a pair of road matches to Four Rivers Conference teams last week. Cuba returned home to host a tournament on Saturday, and the Lady Cats reached the semifinals before being knocked out of the bracket.
Coach Jake Montalbano has often said that if his football team can limit their turnovers and mental mistakes, there’s no opponent that can stop the offensive attack. Last Friday night, his squad proved it, blowing out the Grandview Eagles 58-18 at Hillsboro. The Cats racked up over 650 yards of total offense and scored on almost every possession.
Lady Wildcat softball had a tough week, dropping a close road game at North County and then returning to their home field, where they lost to both Vienna and Salem, giving up a combined 24 runs to their opponents in those two games.
