Hawk Freshman Lose Lead in Fourth to Boerne, 64-62

Canyon Lake Freshman missed a win by three points as the Boerne Greyhounds had a comeback in the fourth quarter outscoring CL by seven points for a two point win, 64-62.

“We played our best game offensively,” Coach John Barthels interjected. “We picked a bad time to play our worst game defensively.We can fix that.”

The Hawks had 11 players scoring points showing off their depth and resolve.

“We were able to get more people involved and had several players step up when we asked them to,” Barthels continued. “We were 17 of 28 from the free throw line after going 8 of 10 against Wimberley, so we have stepped up in the last two games there after shooting just 36% on the year.”

Having so many players involved in games will only help as they take on the tasks of getting their best game going.

“We have really started to play as a team and although we are 0-2 in district I feel we are playing better basketball at the right time,” Coach Barthels finished.

Brandon Ward and Zach Gregory both finished with double figure points with 17 and 12 respectfully.

“We worked as hard as we can to come over the injury,” Gregory said after commenting on losing Joseph Arredondo during the second half. “We will try to work harder in practice and come together as a team more and the wins will come.”

A good game for Canyon Lake as they continue their schedule through District 27-3A.
