Canyon Lake Boy’s Soccer is on a Roll after their win over Burnet on Friday night, 4-2.

This is now a 5 game winning streak which matches the most wins in a season except for the present campaign as CL now resides with a 7-4 record.

Mike Thorpe had a hat trick with 3 goals on the night which gave him 13 goals for this year and has more points for this year than his previous two campaigns.

“He’s (Thorpe) been our captain for 3 years now and he is our team leader,” Head Coach Warren Graham admonished. “Obviously he is very important for us offensively and players will try to key on him…but the key for us will be feed and dish.”

Canyon Lake had their moments in a loss to Wimberley but those moments were fleeting as CL fell short, 58-49.

“They were on the boards and being physical and that limited our chances,” Coach Brian Hooper said as he filled in for an ill Coach Chapman. “We did a good job of breaking their press and we did some good things.”

Hawk fans have heard it before, but the free throw line was their downfall as the Texans took advantage with sharpshooting while the misses would be rebounded by the team in red for another chance of scoring.

Which Wimberley did on 6 different occasions for more points. Add those missed opportunities up and it would more points than this 9 point loss.

Oh yeah, that same free throw line for CL turned into 40% shooting or another six point left on the hardwood.

Canyon Lake Girls Soccer won a tied game when they came from 3 goals down to knot the score as time expired on Tuesday night against Burnet, 3-3.

Burnet jumped out to a 3 goal lead and had CL on their heels until an awakening happened allowing this comeback.

“The girls played aggressive last night and the first half was rough for us offensively,” Head Coach Ryan Tierney said. “We had opportunities but could not put the ball in the net.”

Coach Tierney was commenting on that first half where the Hawks found themselves digging a hole that would be hard to escape from.

“The girls dug deep and made a decision as a unit to fight,” Coach Tierney got excited. “Rachel Bennet sent a the ball to Meredith Ellery who then scored off her left foot and Captain Chloe Cullen fired a shot into the back of the net inside the 18 yard box bringing the score to 2-3.”

Canyon Lake did what needed to be done to realize their chance for a playoff game by flying away from the Cuero Gobblers on Tuesday night, 61-34.

Brandon Ward was the hot player on this night as he finished with 21 points and making 4 shots from beyond the arc.

The Hawks also had surprise points from Gerrit Wilkins and Sam Langford as these two players combined for 20 point to offset the scoring woes from Rory Preiss and Will Gray.

Canyon Lake is averaging right at 10 points a game from Ward, Preiss, and Gray for district play and having those two players combine with 7 points meant other players would need to step up.

The Lady Hawks won a close one over Cuero to stay on the inside track for a chance at playing more games.

“Last night was another example of finding a way to win despite not having our outside shooting on par and also struggling to get to the line,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher recounted. “We feel blessed to have walked away with that win, it was a dog fight.”

Canyon Lake won just one quarter, as the Lady Hawks outscored the Gobblers by 6 points in the 3rd quarter which held up for a win.

Alexa Ramos continues her strong play as she pumped in 13 points with 2 goals coming beyond the 3 point line.

“Alexa (Ramos) and Mia (Riali) were in foul trouble again and that killed us,” Coach Gallagher said. “Ramos is our energy and heartbeat as well as Mia, so we struggled at times to keep the tempo up.”

Ramos continues her climb on the All-Time lists as she is now behind just two players in steals, needing just 8 more to pass Katie Williams who finished her career with 139.

San Marcos took the early lead but Canyon Lake fought back and never allowed another goal for the win.

CL is presently on a 4 game winning streak which is more games than the team won in 3 of their season and has tied two years of playing soccer.

“This was a really good win against a real good team,” Head Coach Warren Graham admonished. “I was a little nervous before the game and I am proud of our effort especially when we went down, 1-0 and then seeing the team locking it on defense.”

All three games have been close as CL has given up just 2 goals in those games.

“Brayden Damico keeps getting better with every game we play,” Head Coach Warren Graham stated. “He’s been working hard after practice to develop as a keeper and it’s paying off on the field.”

Canyon Lake continues to knock on the door but just could not break it down in another close loss to Navarro, 49-40.

“We just were not in sync tonight,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher said. “We played hard, but our defense was not clicking and we struggled to get into rhythm.”

The Hawks continue to improve as Senior Emma Gray rehabs for another shot of playing in the final contests as CL looks to find an open door.

On this night Sarah Russell was on with 5 shots from beyond the arc and 17 points as Sophomore energizer Alexa Ramos found her teammate open on her drives to the basket.

In fact, Ramos was perfect from the floor finishing with 9 points but foul trouble would spell her’s and Canyon Lake’s doom on this night.

Senior Sam Langford and other Hawks will need to dig deep as Season comes to a climax

Canyon Lake fell behind by 9 points in the first quarter and could not recover in their loss to first place Navarro, 59-56 in Friday’s night game at the Hawk Nest.

“We did some good stuff and this is a team that thrives in that 4th quarter,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman opened. “We beat them in the 4th but we need to play the whole game.”

Navarro had won their last game against the Hawks by blitzing CL turning a 1 point game to a 10 point win. In two other wins this season the Panthers had that same formula in wins over Wimberley and La Vernia.

The Hawks have a way of letting one quarter getting away and not playing at an energy level needed for completing contests.

Navarro came out of the chute with a 3pointer and CL was playing from behind for the remainder of this game.
