Hawk Freshman Keep up Pressure in Win over Blanco, 44-15

Hawk Freshman almost pitch a shut-out in win over Blanco, Friday January 4 in the Blanco gym.

What doldrums the Hawks had suffered in their last couple of outings was not in attendance in this contest as Canyon Lake jumped out to a 14 point first quarter while pitching a No-No in that quarter.

“We jumped out to a quick lead and never looked back,” Coach John Barthels commented. “After a couple of disappointing losses we decided to not get fancy and go back to what works best for our team, pressure.”

Wow, Coach Bartels can make adjustments sound so easy.

“We caused turnovers that led to easy baskets for our team,” Coach Barthels closed.

Hayden Lee finished with 10 points leading the team in scoring. The Hawks had nine players that scored in the contest while staying focused in a 29 point whitewash.

“We got a lot of of good rebounds and our defense turned into our offense,” Forward Hayden Lee said. “This type of game gives us a good feeling as we go into our next gameā€¦.this was a nice relief. It also helped to make our threes and that helped open things up.”

Hawks next test will come against Gonzales this coming Monday as they try to keep that good feeling to continue throughout the rest of their season.

Based on Coach Barthels, all this team needs to do is keep up the pressure.
