Freshman Hawk’s Take no Bull from Dogs, 58-39

It was a bad news/good news story on Friday night for Canyon Lake’s Freshman team in their game with Bandera.

Bad News: The Hawks came out and needed some plumbing done on their side of the basket when they shot just 14 percent from the field in that first quarter.

Good News: Lucky for Canyon Lake, Gordon The Plumber was watching his son at his baseball practice on campus. During the First Quarter Break, Gordon was able to clear the basket and make it larger than the ball, giving CL a better chance for producing points.

More Good News: After that dismal start, your Hawks had the lead by five points, 10-5. Thanks to some good free throw shooting from Brandon Ward.

More and More Good News: For the remainder of this contest, the Hawks shot a salty 55 percent and were never threatened by this Bulldog club.

Just put Good News in front of each of these next points and you will have an idea of how dominating Canyon Lake was in training a Bulldog.

Next on the docket, your Hawks took the Bull from the dogs and applied it to Robert ‘Bull’ Woods as he proceeded to shoot lights out in this battle.

During the first quarter Woods did not have one shot. All of his shots were recorded in those last three stanzas.

‘Bull’ Woods was 11 for 14 from the field as he took over the lane and had his way with whatever puppy dog came into his kennel.

“We knew Bandera would be playing a 1/3/1 defense and so we were just going to feed the big guys,” Head Coach John Barthels said. “It was a good thing we got our bad quarter out of the way.”

There were a lot of Good News in this contest.

1. Turnovers: Only three of those rascals for the whole first half and Canyon Lake ended with a very respectable 14 in this game.

2. Rebounds were plentiful with 40 for the game and 23 of those ‘bounds were on the offensive side of the court.

3. Double digits with Assists and Steals helped keep Bandera guessing through much of this contest on who/what/where.

In other words, Canyon Lake, had Bandera bullDogs chasing their tails throughout this game.

Knowing the size of a Bulldogs tail, then you can deduce how futile that would be.

‘Bull’ Woods also had 11 rebounds finishing with a double/double.

“The game was starting to open up and I started getting my points down low,” Woods said with confidence. “Today we just had a really good day.”

“I just told myself that I had to play harder and they backed down and I just took it to them,” Woods continued. “I could not of scored without the team.”

Wow, The ReSporter just figured out that if a Tree falls in a Forest and no one is there, does it make a sound…Based on this Woods, it certainly does and many times those sounds might be the swoosh of a ball going through a net.

Canyon Lake had a good game from all of their players. Five players had four or more rebounds, six players accounted with an assist, and eight players got their hands on a steal resulting with a convincing 19 point win.

The Hawks did not miss a beat while Coach Barthels substituted players throughout which gives you an idea of the depth of this club.

“This was probably one of our most complete games this season,” Coach Barthels closed. “Bandera is a decent team and had beaten teams in our District.”

In other words, CL Freshman did not beat an also ran team.

Congratulations and now go and apply some Wood(s) to a Texan next Tuesday.
