Hawks Finish 3-1 in Randolph Tournament

Canyon Lake had a statement game in a win over Navarro, 60-47 in the Randolph Tournament.

The Hawks have not won a district game in the past two years and even though this win does not count in District 27-3A play, it sure will play in the minds of a team that has been in the desert for way too long.

“We did a good job after breaking the press,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman stated. “We started getting good shots especially in the fourth when we only had two turnovers.”

CL started out lukewarm and then regressed to ice cold in this contest as the Hawks went into halftime trailing, 23-17 after a five point second quarter.

Canyon Lake went over six minutes counting the end of the first quarter before a free throw finally stopped a Navarro 13 point run. Caleb Kreiger had the only basket in this quarter with the Hawks going cold shooting 9%….ouch!!

During the second half, better than 50% from the floor had a different result on the scoreboard as CL reversed the game in their favor.

The Hawks made their statement starting the fourth quarter when they had a 12 point run and a lead for the remainder of this contest.

Andrew Riali had that feel again with an eight point barrage in a 1:12 seconds span in this quarter.

“I was feeling it,” Riali said warmly. “We started cold in the first half and the second half we got it going. You can’t make it if you don’t shoot it.”

Canyon Lake was also playing a pressing team while in the heat of battle.

“We needed to run the clock and slow the game down,” Riali continued. “Our defense turned into our offense down the stretch.”

Another nugget you can see on this team comes from a veteran at the point guard position.

“I have grown up a lot with the help of Coach Bentzen last year and Coach Chapman and that has helped me a lot,” Senior Doug Hubnik deduced. “I’m trying to get the ball and my assists come easy when I drive and have good shooters from the outside or inside with Caleb (Kreiger).”

———————————————————————————————

In the other game with Randolph came another loss. Canyon Lake has won eight of their last 11 games and all three losses have come at the hands of the Randolph RoHawks.

This game was a tight affair, but that second quarter was the part where CL could not get out of their funk.

It was the second game scoring just five points in the second quarter and this time Randolph burned the nets for 15 points and that 10 points was too much of a hill to climb.

Caleb Kreiger was a bright spot scoring 17 points inside the paint, the Senior also had 13 rebounds which was over half the total for the other Hawks.

Ofer against Randolph now for the season, but those are the only losses for their last 11 games.

Canyon Lake was 3-1 for this tournament and now have a decent 9-7 record.

Next game is this coming Tuesday against La Vernia.
