JV Hawks Can’t Finish in Loss to Boerne, 50-46

The Hawk’s Junior Varsity made up nine points in the third quarter but could not finish, losing 50-46 to Boerne.

The second half was a different team for Canyon Lakeā€¦again.

“Coach said to stay calm and don’t give up,” Trendon Martinez started. “We came out and we got some traps which resulted in easy baskets. We just need to stay focused and get that energy for the whole game with an unstoppable mindset and keep up a good defense.”

A much more active team in the second half helped as Canyon Lake was much more energetic on the boards and defense, which turned into offense.

Half of CL’s field goals, in that second half, was a result of an assist which tells you how good this offense was humming as this game matured.

Skyler Tschoepe was a recipient of many of those assists as he also made several other shots having one of his best overall games of this season with 19 points.

“Our second half we started off and got some easy baskets and then that led to momentum,” Tschoepe said with resolve. “Our transition points were wide open especially on our three’s.”

Garrett Winters also returned with a three point clinic making five long shots throughout this contest.

Seven different players were credited with an assist while also bringing down that turnover epidemic this team was suffering in their last outing.

Tommy (energy) Clark was down low amongst some tall trees in this outing and held his on in that setting.

“I know I’m a small post so I need to block out and coach told me I just needed to out physical him, because he played with more finesse,” Energy Clark said. “At the end of the first half we saw our press working, so we went to that in the second half.”

Yes, it was a loss, but when you can hear an opposing Coach starting to yell at his players to get their act together, then you know that your team is clicking.

If there might have been one part of the Hawks game that needed help, then look at their free throw percentage and then you will see the difference in this contest.

Playing with more energy in that first half would of turned this outcome in CL’s favor and then you could have your opponent fighting from behind, where your mistakes don’t get magnified.
