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

Canyon Lake won a big game in Cuero when Freshman Alexa Ramos went to the bank with her free throw giving the Hawks a one point victory,

“We played a full four quarters,” Head Coach Mary Beth Gallagher said. “This was a huge team effort.”

This game was close the whole way as the biggest lead was six points for Cuero.

“They (Cuero) had two good runs and Kyndall Drum came through both times and stopped the bleeding scoring both times,” Coach Gallagher praised.

Foul trouble was the culprit in the Hawks last game with Navarro, but on this night Canyon Lake kept all the players in the game, competing throughout the contest.

The Hawk two Freshman players took center stage in the closing moments as Reagan Heun tied the game with her shot and Ramos ended the game making her free throw with less than a second left on the clock.

That series was set up with a great defensive effort by CL when Ramos dribbled to her goal and was fouled going to hole.

There is a play ground saying that a bank shot only counts when you call it, and Ramos took care of her shot from the charity stripe going to the bank for a one point deposit.

“Yes sir, I was thinking about shooting the shot off the bank,” Ramos said. “All I had to do is make one shot and all I did was focus on the front of the rim.”

So, composure of calling a bank shot made this game a thing of beauty as Canyon Lake improved to a 3-1 district record and sole position of second place as the first round of games comes to an end next week.

Senior Drum was all smiles after this game as she continues to get stronger after starting late for her last year on the hardwood.

“I knew I had to get mentally smart and do my part,” Drum said after commenting on her play in stopping the Gobblers two runs.

Now the Hawks will have a chance to cement a playoff spot in their game with Wimberley next Tuesday in the Hawk Gym.

“We are still building and we can go all the way,” Drum beat. “We have a chance build on this win and get mentally tough for the rest of our games.”

“This will be a very tough game,” Ramos said while commenting on the next game with the Texans. “The team that wants it more will win and with our energy and heart we can pull it off.”

“This game brought us together a little more and it proves that freshman can help this team,” Ramos said like a Senior.

Canyon Lake has not been in this rarefied air for a while and the girls will need your support in the Hawk Nest this coming Tuesday against the Texans.
