Hawks Aim on Finishing Strong in District after Win over Boerne

Canyon Lake did what needed to be done with a convincing win over Boerne, 11-0 last Thursday night

Head Coach John Gallagher

in Boerne.

Pitcher Alexis Robinson struck out the side the first two innings giving Boerne a statement that this game would not be theirs.

“After playing Wimberley we talked about how well we played except for one inning,” Head Coach John Gallagher said. “We took that intensity into the Boerne game and played a complete game.”

The Hawks needed this win after having some bad innings that would wreck a game in seconds.

“We came out confident and played as a team,” Coach Gallagher continued. “After scoring one in the first and two runs in the second, we felt we could dominate.”

Dominate is what CL did and that will help instill that confidence as they continue their road through District 27-3A cities.

Robinson has had some problems during a game with walks and that would not be an issue in this contest as she struck out 11 Greyhounds.

“She (Robinson) improved her walks total and gave up just one hit that went six feet down the third base line,” Coach said gladly. “Defensively we had only one throwing error and (McKenna) Beseda made a great over the shoulder catch going towards the fence.”

Canyon Lake seemed to get those bugs out of their system in this game with timely hits, low number of walks, and better defense.

Kelsey Ahrens drove in two runs with a double and Cameron Berger also matched that hit with a double of her own.

“I told them after the game that if we play with this much confidence and aggression, then we will be in the hunt over the next couple of weeks.”

Canyon Lake can use this Greyhound on their hunts, it seems to help their aim.
