Hawks Have Lid on Basket in Loss to Billies for Varsity and JV

The Hawks started District 27-3A on Friday night with a rude awakening as Fredericksburg put a lid on the Hawks basket winning, 44-20.

There was good news and bad news as this game finished the first quarter.

Good News? Canyon Lake shot 100% from the field.

Bad News? The Hawks shot had 2 shots and 11 turnovers which gives you a hint why only two shots were recorded.

Canyon Lake with all of their bad vibes for this game found themselves down, 17-11 with five minutes remaining in the third quarter.

“We had a good defensive effort,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher exclaimed. “It took us a while but we finally ran a good fast break off of their press.”

Sophomore Sarah Schneider came off the bench and finished with 6 points to lead the Hawks.

Amber Ramsey also had a good stat line with 2 assists, 4 steals, and 2 blocked shots, while pulling down 9 rebounds.

Points were hard to come by as Canyon Lake turned the ball over 29 times which would be 29 times the Hawks did not have a chance to score.

The Hawks will now go on the road for a game with Bandera on Tuesday in what will be an early must win for this young club.

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

Another game where the Hawks found themselves down, 28-21 going into the fourth quarter and then had a hard time getting points to carry the game out to the finish.

One point in the quarter on a Keirsten Jones free throw would be the only point for Canyon Lake which would be way too little to keep the game competitive.

“We need to keep running our plays correctly,” Jones said. “Talking on the court will let us know what is going on.”

Canyon Lake had not been pressed that many times this season and Fredericksburg was running the press non-stop in this game. Hence the 31 turnovers.

“Just recently we have been getting pressed more,” Jones pressed an answer. “We need to do a better job of setting up our offense as fast as possible.”

On what she hopes this Hawk team can improve upon, Jones offered, “We all hope to make our shots and work on breaking the press especially in District.”

Sydney Johnson did finish the game with 9 points and was high point for Canyon Lake.

Canyon Lake will travel to Bandera next Tuesday and will see if their game is improving.

Good Luckā€¦.
