Lady Hawks Soccer: Start and FINISH Strong in Win over Seguin
Canyon Lake Lady Hawks won a pivotal game Tuesday night against Seguin, 4-0 in what could be a landmark contest as this season continues.
To recap this district season, all you need to know is that Canyon Lake needs to beat one team to get them into a playoff spot.
Right now Seguin might be that odd team out which could usher your Hawks into a good situation and another ‘can win’ game with Wimberley might even secure that spot.
“We came out strong,” Head Coach Katie McWhorter started. “We scored our first goal within the first minute of the game.”
Whatever butterflies that might been around was soon a thing of the past as CL took that opportunity to play on the offensive side of the field for much of this night.
Sophomore Christy Fowler had her second hat trick of this season coming through and leading the way for her teammates.
“The defense played incredibly well,” Coach McWhorter gleamed. “Our goalkeeper (Wynne Clark) ended up with only 5 shots/saves. They (the Hawks) did a great job of keeping the ball on Seguin’s half for almost the entire game.”
Canyon Lake’s other goal was scored by Lauren Justis as Jasmine Smith and Jenna MacConnell both had an assist a piece in this contest.
“This was a must win game, and the girls knew that going into it,” Coach McWhorter finished. “They all banded together and played as a team.”
Canyon Lake had two goals in each half and has had problems in that second period this season.
“We have had issues finishing games, we have held really good teams to zero or one goal in the first half, only to let them stomp all over us in that second half,” Coach McWhorter lamented. “But we really played well this whole game, the girls played with a lot of heart and it really showed on the field.”
Now Canyon Lake will have another home game this Friday with Dripping Springs which Coach McWhorter would call ‘a really good team’ and this will be a good test to see how this Hawk team will finish.
