Hawks Snarled in Traffic in Loss to Gonzales, 49-46

Canyon Lake had a late start to their game with Gonzales but the Hawks still could not get out of traffic in time to pull out a win, losing 46-49.

The CL Freshman got delayed in traffic on their route to Gonzales that delayed all of the contests for this evening of action.

Canyon Lake did have some good things come out of this contest, but that most important item was still stuck in traffic, losing, as the Hawks are now mired in a six game losing streak.

Under 10 turnovers and a much better shooting percentage were all good signs but it only took one category that snarled traffic up for the delays…Free Throw Shooting was that flat tire.

The Hawks had been shooting much better in that facet, in fact in their last two games, CL was shooting 70% from the line.

“We just couldn’t get a stop when we needed it,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman said. “There is a lot more hope after our game than there was after Friday’s game but free throws hurt us again.”

Paul Davis had a tying three point field goal with 40 seconds left in the game but then also committed a foul with 16 seconds while Gonzales was waiting for a last shot.

Gonzales was also abysmal from the charity stripe up until that foul and this Apache player sank both free throws to give them the lead and game.

Davis was fouled on CL’s last offensive set, but missed his first shot which forced Davis to miss the second with a chance for rebound and another shot.

To no avail as the Hawks had to foul again that resulted in your final score.

Other notables was Andrew Riali with 12 points on 50% shooting while Doug Hubnik continues to have a record year in the assist department totaling seven in this contest giving him 92 for the season.

Canyon Lake’s next game will be the start of District 27-3A, when Wimberley visits the Hawk Gym this Friday night.
