Wednesday, December 7th, 2016

               Go Hawks

Canyon Lake took Luling out to the wood-shed in their win over Eagls after spotting the home team to a 2 point first quarter lead before laying the wood in a, 57-30 victory.

“We started off slow, but really picked it up on the defensive end, which led to steals and easy points,” Head Basketball Coach Lucas Chapman started. “Our defense really carried us as we didn’t shoot the ball real well and turned it over way too much. Like I told them after the game, we have the ability to have a great offensive team if we can limit our turnovers. Overall it was a good win.”

  Go Hawks

“It was rough at the beginning,” Head Coach Zach Burleson started. “We were frustrated but battled through it. It’s good to come back from adversity. Then again, I need to find a way to get us starting better.”

Those 19 points given up in that first quarter by the Hawks had the defense not allowing that many points combined for the rest of the contest while an impressive 20 point second quarter   giving CL enough fire power to build their lead till the end.  

“The defense did their job that turned a rough start to a win,” Coach Burleson assessed. “We played good after the first outscoring them, 38-19 in the last 3 periods.”

Canyon Lake Lady Hawks wrestled through another tough tournament while going 1-3 this weekend in New Braunfels at Canyon High School.

The Hawks were in all of their games but having such a diverse team that ranges from freshman to seniors on the roster will many times produce those parts of the game where climbing the mountain a fall is always around the corner.

In most of these contests, the Hawks, started slow and found themselves trying to catch up to have a chance for the win.

CL had 5 freshman on the roster and getting significant playing time for future games that will prove fruitful.

“Overall, the tournament was tough and we had moments of good with some struggles,” Head Coach Zach Burleson surmised. “We didn’t play our best at all times but hopefully playing bigger schools will help us prepare for the district season.”

Canyon Lake forged a good two game stint in Marion’s Tournament this week-end but meeting up with Somerset for the second time in one week did not produce any positive results in losing, 80-54 in the Championship contest.

The Hawks beat Gregory-Portland and Marion to reach the final game as CL can now attest that the Somerset Bulldogs are a good team with very few (if any) weaknesses.

On Friday, Canyon Lake started the tournament with Jacob Ramirez and Rory Preiss coming through scoring 13 and 18 points respectfully.

The Hawks were ahead for most of this game but did find themselves with a bigger fight than they wanted as G-P closed the gap during that last stanza. Canyon Lake would have an answer with each Gregory-Portland run for an eventual win.

“This was a good win for us,” Head Coach Zach Burleson started. “Lampasas is a tough place to play and to be able to come out with a win is good.”

Alexa Ramos was everywhere as this ever-ready battery lady was non-stop scoring 16 points with 7 steals and dishing out 4 assists.

“Alexa Ramos had a real good night slashing to the basket,” Head Coach Zach Burleson surmised. “It was her best as far at that goes.”

Not a bad days work as Ramos would harness 7 rebounds to finish out her effort in Badger country.

Canyon Lake took one on the chin from Somerset as the Bulldog’s bite was bigger than their bark in this loss, 63-45.

“It was a learning experience,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman said while trying to shed some positive vibes into this evening’s game. “We did have some players that had good individual effort.”

The game started as if CL would make a statement as the Hawks fought back from an early 5 point deficit to an, 18-15 lead as Ryner Martin sank a 3 pointer as time ran out in that first stanza.

This contest continued to be nip and tuck in the second quarter as Canyon Lake started slow but worked back into the game trailing by 6 points going into halftime.

CL Freshman basketball team finally broke the dam scoring 15 points in the 4th quarter in beating Llano, 33-16.

“We did not play well and played down to our competition,” Head Freshman Coach Javier Almanza recalled. “But our good defense helped us win this game.”

Scoring points was not an easy task with this 11am start before a Thanksgiving break but Canyon Lake would finally finish their task with a win.

Shooting just one for 13 in the first quarter started what would be a trip to the dentist office in getting some teeth pulled.

The basketball was too large for the basket for much of this game as CL had a 25% shooting percentage in the first half that had Llano with a one point advantage, 13-12.

In the first quarter, Canyon Lake scored their first goal with half the quarter already spent and that basket would be the first for the game. Benjamin Rowe found Nicolas Rivera cutting to the basket for that first tooth being pulled.

This dentist patient still had most of his teeth as scoring was not an easy thing to accomplish in this contest.

Canyon Lake made turkey out of Yellowjackets in feast over Llano, 72-35 at the Hawk Nest on Tuesday.

The Hawks had an early game scheduled as the students had been released for Thanksgiving Holidays and CL released some major hurt on Llano as the first quarter 17 point advantage would only be increased during the next 3 quarters as the offense and defense played sharp games.

“We executed well,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman started. “This game scared me because we were playing in the morning and it was right before a holiday.”

Many times a coach has no idea of how their team will perform when you have so many distractions like mentioned above.

Canyon Lake came out of their tough week-end tournament and dominated Somerset Bulldogs with a convincing 14 point advantage in the 3rd quarter in coasting to even their record winning, 50-37.

Regan Heun scored 27 points in this contest as the Hawks needed to run their air conditioner on the bus on the ride home to help cool off the team.

There is something about Somerset that has Reagan’s Sun Rising as she scored 26 points during her freshman year and now has an all time scoring high by one point.

Canyon Lake Girl’s Basketball went into the tall trees this past week as they participated in the San Antonio ISD Basketball Tournament.

Those tall trees came in the form of 5A and 6A schools and the Hawks had a 1-3 showing for this 3 day event.

The SAISD tourney started with a top 5 ranked El Paso Burges team that beat CL, 61-37 on Thursday.

Head Coach Zach Burleson was optimistic after the 4 game experience, “If we play like we are capable, then we can play with anybody.”

The games showed some inconsistencies, but in playing larger classification schools you will certainly be helped as this season progresses.
