Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Sarah Schneider scores 14 points in win over Yoakum to keep the Hawks in the thick of their District 26-4A race.

The Hawks were missing in action in those first two quarters as Yoakum had successfully put a lid on the rim, keeping Canyon Lake with a dismal first half of shooting.

“Good win, but it hurt going 3 for 31 from the floor early,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher stated. “I was proud of the girls effort early but felt we did not have the edge defensively we needed.”

That certainly played out in the second quarter as the Bulldogs outscored CL eight points going into halftime having a double digit lead, 23-12.

Yoakum forgot to take the lid off that same rim CL played in the first half and held the Bulldogs to 4 points in the third quarter allowing Canyon Lake to take a three point lead going into the fourth quarter of play.

“At half, we switched to a 2-3 zone defense hoping to throw them off their game and it definitely worked for the third quarter allowing us to claw back in,” Coach Gallagher surmised.

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

CL Hawks Basketball Backs are against the wall after a loss to Yoakum on Friday night, 63-58.

Canyon Lake shot well from the floor but too many turnovers did not allow this Hawk team to have more shots in committing those costly miscues.

CL did have three players get to double digit scoring in the game as Junior Brandon Ward led the trio with 14 points while Seniors Skyler Tschoepe and Garrett Winters finished with 12 and 11 points.

A good overall game from Sophomore Rory Preiss as he missed just one shot, with an assist and 4 steals for Canyon Lake.

Preiss also led the Hawks with 8 rebounds and has accumulated 122 for the season only needing 29 more this season to crack the top ten rebounders for the Hawks.

The Hawks scored at will against this first year club and took no prisoners.

“We still have a long way to go,” Head Coach Ryan Tierney said. “We were firing on all cylinders, but what worries me is defense but we got our job done tonight.”

Senior Christy Fowler scored four of the goals in the win…in hockey a four goal game is called a Texas hat trick and being in Texas, Fowler was all smiles after this game.

“This was spectacular,” Fowler scored. “This year our team is very strong and we are playing as a team.”

Canyon Lake played their entire game playing offense and with the game getting out of hand scoring wise, CL had an opportunity of practicing on other parts of their game.

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Canyon Lake had a rough night on Tuesday as the Boy’s team got lapped and the Lady Hawks were beat in the last quarter.

That is when the Wimberley went on a 12-2 run to end the game with a win.

A 25% shooting percentage did not allow CL to get any momentum in this game as they had their lowest amount of turnovers for the year with only seven miscues.

Those good attributes did not add enough points for Canyon Lake and now will be facing a tough foe in Wimberley at the Hawk Nest this coming Tuesday.

Rory Preiss did have a good game with a 15 point game and 8 rebounds but with little help from the rest of the team left this game out of reach.

Sean Nolan did end up with 10 rebounds which allowed him to pass Andrew Riali for the all time rebound record for the Hawks.

The nine assists for the 13 shots that were made was also a good part of their game.

Canyon Lake won a big game in Cuero when Freshman Alexa Ramos went to the bank with her free throw giving the Hawks a one point victory,

“We played a full four quarters,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher said. “This was a huge team effort.”

This game was close the whole way as the biggest lead was six points for Cuero.

“They (Cuero) had two good runs and Kyndall Drum came through both times and stopped the bleeding scoring both times,” Coach Gallagher praised.

Foul trouble was the culprit in the Hawks last game with Navarro, but on this night Canyon Lake kept all the players in the game, competing throughout the contest.

The Hawk two Freshman players took center stage in the closing moments as Reagan Heun tied the game with her shot and Ramos ended the game making her free throw with less than a second left on the clock.

That series was set up with a great defensive effort by CL when Ramos dribbled to her goal and was fouled going to hole.

There is a play ground saying that a bank shot only counts when you call it, and Ramos took care of her shot from the charity stripe going to the bank for a one point deposit.

“Yes sir, I was thinking about shooting the shot off the bank,” Ramos said. “All I had to do is make one shot and all I did was focus on the front of the rim.”

So, composure of calling a bank shot made this game a thing of beauty as Canyon Lake improved to a 3-1 district record and sole position of second place as the first round of games comes to an end next week.

Senior Drum was all smiles after this game as she continues to get stronger after starting late for her last year on the hardwood.

“I knew I had to get mentally smart and do my part,” Drum said after commenting on her play in stopping the Gobblers two runs.

Now the Hawks will have a chance to cement a playoff spot in their game with Wimberley next Tuesday in the Hawk Gym.

“We are still building and we can go all the way,” Drum beat. “We have a chance build on this win and get mentally tough for the rest of our games.”

“This will be a very tough game,” Ramos said while commenting on the next game with the Texans. “The team that wants it more will win and with our energy and heart we can pull it off.”

“This game brought us together a little more and it proves that freshman can help this team,” Ramos said like a Senior.

Canyon Lake has not been in this rarefied air for a while and the girls will need your support in the Hawk Nest this coming Tuesday against the Texans.

Lady Hawks Lose to Front Runner Navarro, 50-31

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Canyon Lake won the second half but lost the game with District 26-4A frontrunner Navarro last Tuesday at the Hawk Gym, 50-31.

A 21-2 whitewashing in the second quarter was all this Panther team would need as Canyon Lake lost three starters to fouls in that quarter and just did not have enough woman power to keep up with this very talented team.

Shooting foul shots was something that Navarro got used to as they scored 12 of their 50 points from the stripe.

Luckily for Canyon Lake, this part of Navarro’s game was not that lethal. The Panthers shot 36% from the line as they missed 21 shots that kept this game within reach.

Canyon Lake’s first quarter was an eye opener and not having a good second quarter was a epic fail in giving Navarro a big enough lead to rest their starters and get everyone a chance for some playtime.


Hawks JV Go 2-0 in District Play with Win over Navarro JV

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Canyon Lake’s JV Boys took an eight point lead and held on for a, 47-39 victory at the Hawk Gym last Tuesday night.

Gerrit Wilkins was key in win over Navarro JV

Jacob Ramirez and Heath McDonough both finished with double digit scoring with 13 and 10 point respectfully.

Gerrit Wilkins and Sam Langford were also instrumental in this victory as they dished off some assists while also getting some hustle plays as Navarro was making their move in that second half.

Canyon Lake was being pressed and had lost some of their momentum when Wilkins dove for a ball and while fighting for possession was fouled and two free throws resulted in a shot of offense as the Hawks would finish with a flurry closing out this Panther club.


CL Hawks Lose Heartbreaker to Navarro, 55-54

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Canyon Lake was tied or had the lead for 30:29 in their game with Navarro but could not hold onto the lead as the Panthers scored a three-point shot with 7 seconds on the clock to take a heart breaker from the home team.

The Hawks went into the final stanza enjoying an 11 point advantage but Navarro’s 26 point fourth quarter was just enough to steal a win on Tuesday night at Canyon Lake.

“We did a lot of good things that got us the lead,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman started. “We played good defense and got the ball inside, but we just got tight and timid in the fourth quarter.”

There were several good things happened in this game as CL finished with three players in double figures and many of the other players hustling and finding ways to stay in the lead.
