Canyon Lake missed a tying shot as time was running out and lost to the Burnet Bulldogs, 43-40 on Friday night at the Hawk Gym.

The Canyon Lake Tournament has now finished the second day and both the girl and boy teams will be playing mid-day Saturday for third place.

Take the second quarter shooting off the game and Canyon Lake would be playing for the Championship.

One thing will ring true for the Hawks, very few teams can score more than 50 points which will always give Canyon Lake a chance for a win.

With one minute left in the game, Burnet had just increased their lead to five points which was also their largest lead for the night, 40-35.

Ancel Morel and Matt Magness both sank two free throws in the next 30 seconds getting the Hawks within one point and a chance to play for a championship.

Brandon Berger missed his last free throw for the chance of  tying the game and later giving Carl Cook a good look for a three pointer with time running out.

“We did a good job of trying to push the ball,” Guard Berger said. “Sometimes we overthink on offense and force shots, those shots will be there.”

Canyon Lake continues to play through tough shooting nights and with their strong defense always giving the team, for that last chance to tie or win the game.

“We were trying to get our shooters to get the shot,” Head Coach Jeff Maynard said. “We executed well and drew up plays three times in a row and they really played well and gave us a chance for the win.”

Sometimes that is all you can ask and those shots will start to fall…all you need is the chance.

Canyon Lake will now face District 26-3A foe Fredericksburg at 1:30 Saturday afternoon. The game will follow the Hawk Girl’s team that have their tip off at 12 Noon.

Come and yell the Hawks to victory.
