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.
