CL Hawks win first District 27-3A contest against Navarro, 59-54

Canyon Lake halted their seven game losing streak with a 59-54 win over Navarro last Friday night in Panther country.

The Hawks last win was against this same team, Navarro in the Randolph Tournament over a month ago.

This win was also the first District win in over two years. Yes, CL won a forfeit game two years ago against SA Hawkins, but this was an actual win which certainly means more.

Canyon Lake’s last win in district was 24 games counting that forfeit win with Hawkins. You would go back to 26 district games, when the Hawks beat Ingram Moore, 81-73 February 9th, 2010.

Paul Davis was on for this evenings game scoring 25 points while Andrew Riali finished with 17 points.

Caleb Kreiger contributed 12 rebounds and four blocks to his resume. With his next block he will pass Neal Whitehead for the most blocks in Canyon Lake history, both players are tied with 41.

Another milestone could be passed in the Hawks game with Fredericksburg with Point Guard Doug Hubnik needing only five more assists to pass Matt Magness total of 136 in his recently completed career.

Hubnik continues to rack up assists with 103 for this season.

“It was a gut check win, exactly the type of win that we haven’t been able to get the past few years,” a relieved Head Coach Lucas Chapman said. “It was a great win and something we can really build on. It was good to finally get over that hump.”

The Hawks will now see what type of building they might be constructing when they face 19th ranked Fredericksburg Billies on their court tonight.
