Canyon Lake’s JV Volleyball team came home from Wimberley holding a 1st Place Silver Bracket trophy.

Another Hawk team that is starting to jell as this year’s schedule continues.

The Hawk JV had some new faces starting this year which made this season a little longer to get each player on the same page with their communication.

One game in particular had been on this team’s mind when CLJV was beaten in Lockhart three weeks ago. In that game, the Hawks, had an eight point lead in that third match and a chance for their first win.

That is when all those communication gremlins showed up on the court that night and Lockhart found their groove for a comeback win.

“I think this tournament really helped us to gel as a team,” Head JV Coach Megan Helmey said. “I can see the girls working together and trusting each other more.”

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Bracken passed their mid term test in a game with Austin Hill Country on a wet Friday in Austin, 66-40.

There is still work needed after the grading from Head Coach Lloyd Fields.

“I would give our offense an A and our defense a B, but our kicking game will receive a F after all those kick-offs yards we allowed,” Coach Fields graded. But our four Seniors stepped up and did their job.”

Bracken did receive a good outing with the Senior players.

Zack Fasenmeyer had nine tackles and caused a fumble.

Coy Zunker finished this game with18 tackles almost getting in the nose bleed arena with 20.

Canyon Lake finished off the Marion Bulldogs in wet conditions and lightening delays on Friday night, 38-6.

The game was early in the first quarter when lightning had been sighted and the stands emptied as a delay for an hour ensued on this wet night.

“It was a little depressing when they had to stop the game,” Safety Matt Adams volunteered. “But with Tommy Clark in the locker room, he got us all pumped up and ready to go when we returned to play.”

CL had a 7-0 lead at the delay signal and quickly resumed when they had a lightening strike offensively for another score with 5:16 left on the first quarter clock.

“We had a goal to have a fast start,” Head Coach Charley Drum said. “We got three and out on defense and our kickoffs gave us touchbacks.”

That was certainly a part of the game that changed from last week’s start.

“They had this game and played with intensity,” Coach Drum parted.

Canyon Lake JV has now won three more games than they accumulated last season and the good news is the ease of how they are dominating their opponents.

Marion Bulldogs was that team on the short end for this night to the tune of, 47-0.

Defense was at full throttle for this game as Kenneth Jowers planted the Bulldog’s QB in their end zone for a two point lead on the safety.

Canyon Lake had a big win against La Grange on the road when they scored a sweep, 25-23, 25-22, 25-23.

For some perspective on this game take these facts on La Grange.

The Leps had just won the Consolation Bracket in the just completed Hays Tournament that had 25 teams in competition.

That translates to winning six out of eight contests and before their loss to the Hawks had a 21-7 record.

“This was a good preparation game for district,” Head Coach Kim Paisley stated. “They will remind you a lot of Wimberley with their tradition.”

CL Hawks make the Sinton Pirates walk the plank in last Friday night’s game, 25-19, 25-16, 25-19.

The Hawks looked in control on this night as they met a team that was playing students that were younger than they were.

Sinton had several freshman and sophomores on the court which might sound a lot like last year’s Hawk team.

The good news is that CL did not show any mercy as they disposed of this Pirate team before they had a chance to get a patch put over their eye.

Each game had Canyon Lake taking a lead and maintaining the pressure and not letting Sinton to get back into position to stage a knock out punch.

“If football was an academic course then last week we had a chapter test and this week was a ‘Pop Quiz’,” Head Professor Lloyd Fields taught. “This next week will be our most important class when we take a 6-Week Test.”

Bracken has 45ed the Rams every year in this seven year series and this would be no different after a Noah Boriack 38 yard run with 5:20 left in the third quarter closed out the game.

BCS needed this to be a ‘Mercy’ game based on being short in numbers this season and going home early was a welcome relief for a team that played over 100 plays last week in Temple.

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Canyon Lake’s JV team has now won two more games than last year as the Hawks awakened in the second half and inflicting damage on Smithville, without using their offense.

The game was still much in doubt at halftime as both teams struggled to get enough positive plays to counteract some missed snaps and penalties.

“We made too many mistakes and we have some things to work hard on in practice,” Head JV Coach Jon Barthels assessed. “I’m happy with this game, the way we finished in the second half, it sometimes just takes a while to get going.”

The Canyon Lake Freshman (2-0) team continues to impress as they started a ‘gold’ rush with their win over the Tigers in Smithville Thursday night, 49ers-22.

Luke Justis started the game off with a 43 yard run and the Hawks would not trail in the game as an incentive had been placed in front of this Freshman team.

“We (the team) saw some gold pants in the dressing room and we liked them and asked the coaches if we could wear them,” Justis said. “The coaches said if we scored 50 points then we could wear them.”

By ground or by air, Justis proved he was running for gold as he finished the first half by jumping to snag a pass from Ben Fulton with no time left on the clock.
