                Go Hawks!

Canyon Lake will welcome Austin Eastside Memorial Panthers to the Hawk nest this Friday as CL won their first meeting last year, 63-0.

That was the  first shut-out the Hawk defense has had since the school started in 2008.

Eastside is still looking for their first win and scored their first points in last week’s loss to Llano, 49-13.

Last years game featured having a lot of players with a chance to play and show what they are capable of, for future games.

Canyon Lake is presently on a 2 game winning streak as this will be the opening of District 14-4A Division I play. This district has had some good teams making a statement with Fredericksburg with one loss to Wimberley and Boerne winning their game against that same Texan team.

Wake up and smell the Coffee Hawks!!

The Greyhounds are undefeated and will be playing at Fredericksburg on Friday while Taylor will have the night off.

CL Hawks will look to keep some momentum and continue to heal some players before a meeting with the rest of the district schools on the horizon.

There were 10 players that had a chance to rush the ball in last year’s game and you can expect much of the same tonight as Eastside continues to get more students into action for the coming years.

Canyon Lake presently has a. 6-1 record when playing Austin schools and that is six wins in a row coming into Friday’s contest.
The Hawks lost their first game with Austin Travis in 2010.

The Hawks next home game will be in two weeks when Fredericksburg comes to town. Another opponent that has raised their bar of competition this season. The last time the Billies had just one loss this far into the season was in 2013. That team finished with a 10-2 record.

That was also the last time the Billies have beaten Canyon Lake and it was a home game.

A lot on the line tonight and in the next 4 weeks as CL will start their stretch run for the games that count.

Go Hawks!!

            Hawks  13   Wimberley  20    Badgers  25   Lorena     49


                   Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake will hit the halfway mark for the season this Friday as the Hawks travel up 281 to Lampasas for a game that will leave this year’s team with a winning or losing record.

The Badgers have not been an easy out for Canyon Lake as this school won the first two games of the series.

That first game in 2014, had CL with three lost fumbles after putting the ball on the ground a total of 6 times. This was one of many games these past few years that had the Hawks with a halftime lead and then having mistakes allowing the visitors to leave the field with smiles on their face.

During the 2015 campaign, the Hawks, were one of two teams Lampasas would beat.

That year, Lampasas entered their game with CL with the same record (1-3) and the Hawks would be their last win for the rest of that season.

What made this game worse was how badly the Hawks were beaten by this Badger team.

                       Go Hawks!

The score was, 42-14 and one of those Hawk touchdowns came on a kick-off return giving an idea of how both sides of the ball failed to show up for this contest.

Lampasas has the same record this year and Canyon Lake cannot afford to enter this game with any preconceived notion that this will be a win, because on that fateful night 2 years ago, the Hawks, were manhandled.

Wimberley beat Lampasas by 35 points two weeks ago and using that as a barometer for this week would be a mistake.

The Badgers played Robinson for their only victory, but seeing how their offense played in outscoring the Rockets, 67-62 should be a wake-up call for the Hawk’s defense.

QB Ace Whitehead completed more passes in that one game than the Hawks might have for the season (26 for 32) with 5 touchdown throws.

           Badgers for Dinner!!

RB Sean Williams had a 11 yard per carry average finishing with 353 yards on the ground.

Brandon Pierino had 11 catches for 112 yards helping the Badger’s offense in that Robinson contest.

That game will bring back memories during that same year when CL lost a 55-50 game to Marion when the Hawks could not stop anything the Bulldogs did on that night.

The Hawks will need to come into this road game in focus as the offense and defense reshuffles players and the Hawks continue to heal from previous injuries.

Winnable game but that will not be a guarantee as the Badgers have teeth!!!

Go Hawks!!

Canyon Lake will need a win tonight to even their series with the Blanco Panthers as the Hawks will enter their 10th year of competition and presently have a 4-5 record against our friends on the Blanco River.Go Hawks and Go Strong

CL has had a problem in scoring points in these 9 previous years as last season’s 40 points was the most ever.

In fact, the previous 4 games before last year’s game, Canyon Lake, had amassed 39 points total in those contests. It broke a 3 game losing streak and before that 33 point win, the Hawks had not won any previous Panther game by more than a touchdown. (21-14 in 2009)

Blanco JV team lost by 6 points last year and won the year before that, so those indicators might show how this could be a much closer game than might be expected.

The Panthers are similar to Canyon Lake in that throwing the ball is not how they move the ball on offense.

With just 400 yards passing last year, Blanco, would like to control the contest on the ground. QB Kelby Cox will be returning and ready to have a better start than last year’s game.

       Beat the Panthers!

Blanco has 6 offensive and 5 defensive starters returning as RB/LB Jeff Hood will be in the backfield while having snaps as a starting linebacker. How the offensive line performs will let you know how the offense will stack up to a loaded CL Hawk team.

Canyon Lake will have a loaded offensive team as most of those students are back from a team that averaged 39 points per game last season.

QB Ben Fulton will be behind center for his 3rd year in a row and that will hopefully pay dividends as Tanner Faris and Micah St. John will be entering another campaign as running backs.

The Hawk offensive line will be anchored by 4 year starter Jacob Foster and this formula could be lethal as CL, by not losing a lot of offensive players, will have a significant amount of snaps with the same cast for two years running. (pardon the pun)

Rebecca Creek Golf, says Go Hawks!

Defensively, Canyon Lake had an up and down year and will be working on a plan to get this group of players up to speed quickly this year.

There will be games that an offense will not always be on their ‘A’ game and having a defense that has the ability to shut down teams will be a must.

Defense will build champions and Blanco will certainly vouch for that sentiment as this club has been top notch each of their long playoff runs.

Hence, Canyon Lake, has a 4-5 all-time record and not counting last year’s 40 point output, the Hawks averaged 10 points In those previous battles. That will attest to how well the Panther’s have played defense during this series.

Go Hawks!
