Hawk Freshman Bow to Pressure in their Loss to Navarro

Canyon Lake’s Freshman squad did not have a good game in their loss to Navarro last night.

Last time these two squads met, it was a great comeback but an overtime loss to this same group of players.

Apparently, Navarro was allowed to put their Superman Cape on as the Panthers took a nine point lead in that first quarter and were never threatened for the rest of the evening.

“We turned the ball over too many times in this game and once again lost our composure when the pressure was on,” Coach John Barthels said. “We did play a good fourth quarter when I asked them to step up and get after it.”

Sounds like their might have been some frustration for the Hawks as the proverbial ‘Snowball’ going down hill syndrome.

“We still have a lot of things to get better at before the end of the season,” Coach Barhels said with resolve. “We will see what kind of fight we have left in us as we play the best team in our district as far as pressure goes this Friday with Fredericksburg’s press.”

It sounds like Coach Barthels has laid the ground work on what practices will be encompassing for the rest of this week.

That third quarter four point outburst will need to be corrected and then a turnaround might be forthcoming.

Come out and support the Hawks for their last game at home for this basketball season.
