CLJV Boys Beat Stacey, 50-34

Canyon Lake Junior Varsity Basketball team pulled away from Stacey in the third quarter after hitting for 70% from the field.

That quarter allowed the Hawks the separation needed to coast for a 16 point win, 50-34.

The first quarter, CLJV was not in sync, as they were only able to get eight shots off. When shooting 50% for a quarter, you will usually like to get more chances at the basket.

A two point lead was not a good indicator on how this game might transpire.

Good defense helped Canyon Lake increase that two point lead up to seven points going into halftime.

The third quarter was when CL got their bearings, while shooting a lofty percentage and big Sean Nolan setting up shop underneath the basket for what proved to be the deciding quarter in this game.

Nolan finished with 10 rebounds and altered many more shots that gave the Hawks that elusive momentum.

“Just trying to get rebounds and put backs,” the 6’5″ Nolan bellowed. “This was just our second game and we need to work on our shots.”

Well said, from a man that was twice the size, of this reporter, as this reporter looked up during the interview.

Austin Acosta also had a good game as he shared the leading scorer accolades with Trendon Martinez with nine.

“I was trying to get good looks and having to move the ball around to get our offense going,” Acosta said. “We can get pretty good when we get into better condition.”

A good game for Canyon Lake to see how far they need to go as this season progresses.

Now you can go work on those FREE Throws!

Good Luck Hawks!!!
