Hawk’s Free Throws prove Costly in Loss to NB Christian, 55-49

The Canyon Lake Hawks had costly free throws in their loss to New Braunfels Christian Wildcats in their final game of this year losing, 55-49.

The Hawks barely outscored their second quarter in the second half as they went cold again during that time span.

“Being able to know how to score when we need to score is what we need to work on,” Coach Lucas Chapman exclaimed. “They (NB Christian) got us out of what we wanted to do.”

Canyon Lake was just three for 12 from the stripe in that second half and each miss would of either extended their lead or drawn the game closer during some very crucial segments of the game.

Andrew Riali had a spurt of three points in that second quarter giving your Hawks the lead going into halftime.

The Wildcats and Hawks were swashbuckling during the last minutes of the second quarter. Riali had nine points during a two minute stretch that helped give Canyon Lake a 30-27 lead at intermission.

Starting the second half Caleb Kreiger was the Hawks focal point as the offense tried pounding the ball inside for close up baskets.

However during that same time period, Kreiger was picking up his fourth foul giving him some time on the bench as Coach Chapman was trying to keep him in the game strategically.

Doug Hubnik continues to get more solid play being the quarterback for CL with more and more timely shots and getting their offense in sync.

Chandler Faulkner also helped with some solid defense and four points to compliment that part of his game.

Canyon Lake has played a lot of games in the last two weeks and will now take a break before they get back in action starting the first part of 2013.

“We have played 18 games and it is good to finally get a break, it will be good to get away,” Head Coach Chapman closed. “We know who we are and I’m pleased by starting the break being at .500.”
