CL Hawks Can’t Finish in Loss to Lockhart, 62-45

Hawk Freshman Take it on the Chin in loss to Lockhart, 63-30

Canyon Lake could not find the bottom of the rim in their loss to Lockhart last Tuesday night at the Mountain Valley Middle School.

“What a difference this game was after we scored 66 points in our game with Llano,” Head Freshman Coach John Bartthels said. “Turnovers played a major role in our loss, we had a spark in the fourth quarter but we started to late in playing like a team.”

The Hawks were led in scoring by Wilkins as he scored 10 points in the loss.

Canyon Lake was put on life support until the fourth quarter when the EMS finally found a pulse as the Hawks scored 13 points to help get to 30 for the final score.

Come support the Freshman in their next contest as they plan on rebounding on the hardwood.

=========================================================

Canyon Lake Varsity scratched and clawed their way back to a one point deficit going into the 4th quarter and then the trap door was sprung and Lockhart unleashed a 27 point barrage and buried the Hawks 62-45 last Tuesday night at Mountain Valley Middle School.

The Hawks were ahead 5-3 with 4:00 minutes left the the first quarter and that would be their last lead in this affair.

The Lockhart Lions led for the remainder of this game but did have a scare when CL closed to within one point when Garrett Winters drained a 3-pointer with two seconds left in the 3rd.

During the fourth quarter, the Lions started the stanza with a 17-1 spurt that took less than four minutes to attain.

Now Canyon Lake will need to learn how to play four quarters.

“We are still trying to figure stuff out,” Head Coach Lucas Chapman stated. “We did play better this week and we have 13 players that can play and contribute.”

As Coach Chapman continues to try different potions for his pre District experiment in making this Hawk team into a competitive unit entering district play in a month.

“Our ultimate goal is to get better,” Coach Chapman said. “We are getting better and we need to get things together especially defensively.”

There was some bright spots for the team as several players have only been to four practices after competing in the football arena recently.

Guard Garrett Winters did shine as he handled and shot the ball with a lot of confidence since playing on JV last year.

“I feel like I have grown up a lot,” Winters said. I feel like I’m rebounding and taking care of the ball and this still just our second game, but I feel we will get better and better.”

Canyon Lake will continue to get some unity with the team as they play in the Marion Tournament this weekend.
